Hello, 
I posted this to a similar problem:
I can help you with this. Follow these instructions--> Start-->Control Panel-->Administrative Tools-->Computer Management, under the Storage section select "Disk management". Locate the Pen drive, and then change the drive letter.

Select the external drive. Right click, and select "Change drive letters and paths"-->Highlight the driveletter to change-->Click the "Change" button-->From the drop-down list choose an unused drive letter, and hit Ok. 

The pen drive should be recognized and accessible at this point. Let me know if you have any other questions. 

Thank You,
 Raph30

How to fransfer data from laptop to pendrive


First turn on your computer.

Once your computer and operating system are up and running, then plug the USB pen drive into an empty USB slot on your laptop.

You may have to wait a few moments while your computer detects this device and automatically installs the appropriate drivers for it, which should take no more than 30 seconds or so.

Now just click on the MY COMPUTER icon on your desktop or navigate there manually.

Look in the section titled DEVICES WITH REMOVABLE STORAGE.

You should see your USB removable flash drive listed somewhere in that section. Just double click on its icon to open it up.

Now that the USB pen drive folder is open, you can just COPY and PASTE, or DRAG and DROP any document or file from your computer into that USB pen drive folder the same way you would transfer files to any other folder on your computer.

To copy files, just RIGHT mouse click on the file you want to copy, then select COPY from the drop down menu.

Then just RIGHT mouse click anywhere in the USB pen drive folder and select the PASTE option from the drop down menu.


Once all your files are copied, just close the USB pen drive folder.

Then click on the SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE icon in the lower right hand corner of your taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Select the USB removable pen drive option and then wait for it to say that it is now safe to remove the USB pen drive.

Then just remove your USB pen drive by pulling it straight out of the computer's USB slot.

I hope that was helpful.

Good luck and take care.

Joe.

Im using v165w pen drive.when i connect to pc its not detecting the USB.i also tried with another pc also,the same problem occurs.i tried with both windows7 and windows XP..Wat can i do to solve the...


If two computers(and two different operating systems) arenot detecting the pen drive then most likely there is something wrong with thatpen drive and it needs replaced.

In Windows 7 you can check the following.
Plug the pen drive into an available USB port.
Click the Windows Orb(Start menu in XP). Right-click on "Computer"(My Computer in XP) thenleft-click "Manage". If "Computer" does not exist in the "Start" menuthen it should be on the desktop.
In the left pane click "Disk Management".
In the right pane, the first column will show you the drives currentlyinstalled(C:, D:, E:, etc). C: is typically the drive your operating system isinstalled on. To check what drive is what, just click the Windows Orb(Startmenu in XP) then click "Computer"(My Computer in XP). If you see the same driveletters under "Computer" that you see in Disk Management then the pen drive isnot being detected. Do you hear any sounds coming from Windows when you plug inthe pen drive? If you have a different pen drive is that one beingdetected? Are other USB devices detected when plugged into thecomputer?

You need to download and install the drivers for your memory stick. You can do this by going to the manufacturers website (who made the stick) and  download the drivers from there.

I want USB port Driver for detect


No mention of Brand of Pen Drive so I would start there first.

Try www.pendrive.com

Also no mention of when the latest updates were done ,hmmm



Normally should auto recognise when plugged in

(should do anyway)

When you install usb drive,

and drive does not appear be present,



SOLUTION...............................................................



Assuming your using XP,

go to start

then my computer,

right click,manage,

disk management,

This will put you in the area where you can check the health and activitys of your hard drives,

If this drive was recognised in the port then it will be visable in this area,

here you can right click on the drive and update the individual drivers of each device that may have issues.

So go ahead right click and update the drivers,

click I have disk on the wizard prompt and let the wizard search for the correct drivers,

if it comes back saying please insert cd then let the wizard search the internet for the correct drivers.

If this does not fix the problem then a Factory Default Reinstall will fix this.

If the issue still remains after these steps its the motherboard replacement time.

BACK UP BEFORE FORMATTING.......
