Re: flash drive not working
Start my right clicking on My Computer and select manage from the options. Once there click on disk management and find the name of your flash drive or see that it is the correct size. Right click on the name of the thumb drive and select change drive letter and path. Then change the letter to something like Q or a letter not being used. Sometimes that works for me at work.

1) Power cycle the computer (unplugged), and try it again, when it is COMPLETELY booted.
2) unplug it and plug it into a different port(s).
4) Try it on a different computer (both PC and MAC, as it could be a formatting issue) (if it doesn't work, entertain the reality that I may have lost everything and may have to format the drive and/or buy a new one)
Try emptying you trash on the computer that you deleted the information on. Or recycling bin depending on the type of computer. When you "delete" the information from the flash drive, it does not permanently delete it until the "Trash" is emptied.

t seems that your flash drive has some bad
sectors since normally that's the error message you get when that
happens, try to format your drive under disk management.
Note: your files will be erased if
you format your flash drive.
If formatting your flash drive does not solve your
will advise you to contact Memorex technical support for better

It depends on your skill level as to if it can be fixed or not. The data is most likely still safely stored on the flash chip inside the drive casing. However, the USB connector has been just ripped off. If you have any experience soldering it would be as simple as getting a replacement usb plug from an electronics store or cutting a cable you have and then soldering the USB connector back to the flash drive inside the casing. This is something than can be done at home or possible by a repair shop that does any type of soldering work(tv, radios, ect) Most computer repair shops will look at you silly if you ask them to solder a thumb drive back to life. I would not expect more than to be able to mount your drive and copy the data. Odds are after you cut it out of the casing it will never go back in correctly.
Have you tried also plugging in the DC usb cable into the traveldrive? I was having problems where my computer wasn't working properly with my drive unless I had it either plugged into a powered usb drive/hub or I had the DC plug in as well.
Ok plug the the device into your usb port. Most usb devices have lights letting you know they are working. After plugging it in if your using Windows goto "My Computer" and look for a new Drive letter like when I plug mine in it says NO_NAME(G:) and then I can access the flashdrive just likes its a regular harddrive. Now you can always already have "My Computer" open so you can see the new drive letter pop up. Don't look for (G:) yours can be different but it might also be named something like TravelDrive(F:) thats just an example. I hope this helps you
