Your flash drive may be inoperable, but before we say that, let's try a couple of things.

1) Leave the flash drive plugged into a USB port, and reboot your system. Windows will sometimes have difficulty reading devices plugged in after it has launched.

2) Go into System>Device Manager>USB and track down that flash drive (as a device). Delete it from your system. Next time you boot and insert it, Windows will see it as a new device, and walk you through installing it from scratch.

Since the system won't recognize it, then you can't reformat it, so that takes away one good option.

Give those two things a shot, and let me know. Flash drives do go bad (pretty regularly, actually), so in the future, don't store critical information on one. Burn it to CD or DVD instead, and use the flash for simply transferring data from one system to another.

Cheers
Nick

My Dane Elec Flash drive now has write-protect active after my computer jammed and I am unable to remove it it is a 4GB


You will have to be the computer administrator to change any values on a hard drive

click start control panel user accounts you should see a box with the administrator and the guest account if you have made one click on the administrator this may vary depending on which operating system you have

click start click to open on my computer you should see your hard drive usually C: right click select properties there will be an array of options select the security tab option then advanced make sure you have full control in windows 7

click start control panel user accounts click on the administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in windows XP

USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
hope this helps

Sounds like it shorted out when you plugged it in the first time. I would return it and get a replacement. There is nothing you can do to fix it if this is the case.

My computer does not recognize the 4gb USB Flash drive when plugged. Truied on 2 separtate computers now. Windows XP operating systems.


Hi m_j_lester

Do the computers that you tried it on make a sound or give any indication that a new device has been plugged in? If not then it could just be broken. It's not uncommon for these devices to fail altogether and they have a shelf life of about 10 years (depending on how much abuse they get of course!).

If you need any more help then let me know.

Scott.

Windows does not recognize the device ?


Hello raigangarkam,

There's a chance that that particular USB slot on your computer may not be working.

You may try to attach another USB device on that port to check if that works or not.

You might also want to try & attach your 2GB Cruzer flash drive on another USB port or another computer & check if it recognizes it.

If it still won't be recognized on the other computer, you might need to replace that 2GB Cruzer USB Flash Drive.

Hope this helps.

My Windows XP is no longer recognizing my cruzer 8gb


With the flash drive plugged into your computer, go to start>settings>control panel>administrative tools>computer management>disk management
Your flash drive should be there. Right click it and select "change drive letter and paths." Click on "change." Change the drive letter.
Just follow the directions to finish.

Sometimes, if you turn the computer on, insert the flash drive, and reboot, the drive will show up, it is detected on start along with your other drives.

(I recommend starting at the end of the alphabet (Z) and work backwards when selecting the drive letters for flash drives, that way, in the future it will be easier to recognize them.)

SanDisk Cruzer 4Gb not found on XP


I have the same issue. I have found a temporary solution though. I have a Sandisk 4GB Cruzer and an HP Laserjet 1022N connected VIA USB. When I uninstall the USB Printing support driver from Device Manager then plug in the Cruzer it recognizes it right away. Not quite sure why this would happen though
