    Hello,


    Have you tried plugging it in another computer? Unfortunately, If you get the same message the usb drive is corrupted and you'll need to purchase a new one.


    Please let me know if you have any questions.


    Thank You,
    Raph30

There are several USB recovery programs available. While I don't endorse any one in particular, I tend to stay away from "free" ones, since I believe in the axiom "there's no such thing as a free lunch" since you don't know what's in it for them.

You could try this company, which advertises a free download (but I suspect they are really a shareware company so it's possible that they will want money for a more expansive version) which may make it possible to fix your drive in one instance at least.

If this data is important to you, it's probably worth spending 30 or 40 dollars to avoid a repeat.in the future, because USB drives get corrupted from time to time.

Anyway, here is the link:

Good Luck and If you find my assistance valuable, please give me a rating.

My computer doesn't recognize my dane-elec 8gb usb stick , although other usb devices do work.


1. Try a different USB port. If other ports recognize it, then the original port is fried. 2. Try a different computer. If the other computer does not recognize it, then your flash drive is damaged.

Good Luck!

Cruzer micro 4gb does not start on windows xp


If you are using Windows.
Open the Windows explorer.
Plug the device in a USB port and wait for the computer to recognize it. After it is recognized the Windows Explorer will show two additional icons, one of them a CD-ROM.

Click the icon with the CD-ROM, and it will execute the U3 operating system. A small yellow icon with a U3 label will appear on the task bar. Right-click the icon on task bar and select the "Open U3 Launchpad". Point to the Settings button on the right side.
Right click that button and select the U3 LaunchPad settings

In the window that pop up point to "Autorun" button and click it.

Click the button that will say Enable.
After that it will launch automatically whenever the device is recognized by a computer.

If the U3 launchPad is missing from the device you can download it from the SanDisk site. Here is the link. Download it and install it on your computer. Note:It does not launch on MacProducts or Linux.

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.

I plug in the sundisk cruzer 2.0 GB USB device and all it does is blink. It will not show up on my computer for the drive.


Hello

If the computer recognize that there is a device plugged into the system, then just try to plug the flashdrive into another port at the back of your case.

If the computer does not recognize that there is a device plugged in, there is a problem with your flash drive. It still gets power from the computer(Bliking light), but there is no data transfer between computer and flash drive.

If it is still under warrenty, send the flash in for repairs(presuming that your USB ports work), otherwise try and see if it works on a other computer. If it does, the the problem is with the USB ports on your computer. I really hope this can be of help.

Best regards
Andrea
