Skymedi USB drive is not recognised on my computer

When I insert my Skymedi USB Drive and click on the device, it states that its not accessible. I've tried the memory stick in another computer and it states that it needs to be formatted. Even the data recovery programme doesnt recognise the memory stick. Is there anyway I can retrieve the data that has already been saved on this memory stick?

By the way, I'm using Windows Vista!

Ya... these off-brand devices often need special drivers that need to be installed first. Hunt for the drivers online. Most times you can download them for free!

I have TWO LARGE off-brand USB drives, but the vendor is now out of business so I am unable to locate the drivers anywhere and believe me, I have tried!

Hope this helps!

Iomega portable hard drives connect to your computer through a USB port. When you connect the Iomega hard drive to your computer, it should pop up as an icon in your My Computer folder. If you can't find the icon in your My Computer folder then you probably need to update the driver for the device. Updating this driver is not very hard and can be done automatically from the Windows Device Manager.

Plug your Iomega hard drive into one of your computer's USB port. Click the "Start" button and go to the "Run" field. Type "Devmgmt.msc" into the Run box and press the "Enter" key. Go down to the bottom of the device manager to the "Universal Serial Bus Controller." Click on the little + (plus) sign to expand it. Look for an entry with a yellow exclamation point and click on it. Click the "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" button and then click the "Next" button. Click the "Finish" button when the installation has finished. Go to the "My Computer" folder from your "Start" menu and locate the Iomega hard drive icon. Double click the icon to gain access to the external hard drive. Hope it helps.

I am not recognising kigston data traveller


When the flash memory USB hard drive device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash or USB hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.
NOTE Formating the USB flash drive will delete your data.

Does the drive show in Device Manager? Right click on 'My Computer' and select properties, the open device manager.. Navigate down to Disk Drives or Hard Drives, click on the plus sign and see if your drive is listed. If it is, then right click on the drive name and open properties for the drive. Click on the 'Volumes' tab and hit the 'Populate Button'. It may be the disk just needs initialising, then reformatting before you can use it. If it does need initializing, a wizard should appear to guide you through the process!
If this doesn't solve your problem, try using a different USB cable and/or USB ports on your computer, and ensure to unplug all other USB devices other than keyboard & mouse.

DID you tried different USB ports?
IF YOU DNT NEED the inside data you can always format it.
..using any usb format tool (DriveKey), or u can even go to administartor tools, device managment, disk managment, locate your flashdrive and format, it will be back to normal state after that.

No access to USB drive when inserted (Windows). ''Malfunction'' error message.


Sometimes when a flash memory stick fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

When the flash memory device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Health

512MB KINGSTON DATA TRAVELER BECOMES SKYMEDI USB DRIVE USB DEVICE..PLS HELP


I think that I have a similar problem (and a potential solution)

1. My thumb drive is 4GB "super talent", and I have used it for about 2years

2. Suddenly, it show up as "REMOVABLE" SKYMEDI USB DEVICE (!)

3. I tried "google" for answer... and did not get further

4. Finally, I righ click on "my computer" -> select "manage" the "computer management" MMC windows open

4.1 I tried the "Disk Management" and it still can not connect to it

4.2 I clicked on "Removable Storage" ... and then I "SKYMEDI..."

4.3. I righ click on the device and select "Task" -> "Free" (thinking ... what can be worst!)

4.4 ... sunddenly ... I see my drive back ... with everything on it....


I hope that this help (... I am guessing that the "removable storage" manager locked this device somehow)

Regards

Drive Shredded


Open Administrative tools, Computer management applet; under storage, disk management. You will probably need to partition and reformat. If this drive is used only on XP machines, then format NTFS, otherwise FAT32.
