Transcend 1 GB USB Drive not detected by computer. On connecting, the light blinks for 3-4 tims and then goes off. The drive does not appear in My Computer Section also. Under Device Manager>>USB Mass Storage Device, a yellow exclamation mark appears besides this. On updating the driver, the computer says latest drivers are already installed. Under device status, it says ''the device cannot start (code 10)''. Kindly suggest.

Re: USB Drive not detected by computer
Try to install latest chipset drivers for your motherboard. If you don't know what motherboard you have, you can download Everest and it'll give you all needed info. Good luck! If after install you still have this problem tell me, and we'll try to find a solution.

Try to download software called USBDLM install it to the computer. Then it will auto detect your USB if your flash drive doesn't have problem on the hardware itself.
If there is a hardware problem reformat or run scandisk USB disk.
Are both PC's using the same operating system. Try removing all the usb root hubs from device manager then rebooting.
Device Manager > Universal Serial Bus Controllers > Uninstall or Delete any usb root hubs.
its probably a virus trying formating on windows 98 or on linux based system may work for u also check when the pen drive isnt connected properly or the usb port or connection is loose it may say a read only pen drive due to slow speed connection of pen drive to computer
ic, maybe the usb port of your friend's pc is defective which may cause your pen drive to malfunction, probably a shorted usb port. or just maybe your pendrive was dropped by your friend which damage the drive, it happened to me too before.
