It is possible that windows is trying to assign a drive letter to the thumb drive that is already assigned to another drive. You will need to go to Disk Management to see if the thumbdrive is showing up there and then try to assign it a drive letter.

Was Dragging Files Onto My 2GB Flash Drive And It Stopped Working


Hello,

This story may give you hope.
This very same day, I removed my Cruzer Micro unsafely and it stopped being recognized by the computer. I plugged it into another USB port and it did not work. I tried to access it under Ubuntu Linux: I could see the drive but if I click on its icon, I get the message Unable to mount volume, no media.

I tried to reinstall the SanDisk LaunchPad, but it refused to be coaxed because it did not recognize the drive as a SanDisk.

I mourned may drive, but still had hope to recover my data. A google search took me to some data recovery company, that would charge close to 300 dollars. I had no intention of paying that kind of money.

Then, without any particular reason, I plugged the drive in a USB hub that I connected to one of the two ports that failed to recognize the drive. And the miracle happened. Windows recognized it. Was it the presence of the Hub? I don't know.

I made haste to transfer my data to a folder in my computer.

After the transfer I installed the LaunchPad I downlowed from SanDisk. It warned me that my files will be lost. But since I already transferred them, I could not care less.

When I reaccessed the drive, my files were still there. Now my drive works fine: it is recognized by Windows, as well as Ubuntu.

The moral of this story is don't give up easily, and keep trying.

What do you think?

Don't have a problem, just don't know how to use flash drive


Simply plug in the thumbdrive into any available USB slot. It will show up in "My Computer" - generally named the same as the manufacturer of the drive.

From here it's all just drag and drop into the thumbdrive. You can make folders, or whatever you want as though it were a normal hard drive.

When you're done, right click on the drive in My Computer and select "Eject" - then you're done.
