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!

Pen drive access denied


USB ports and devices make connecting to another computing device convenient.
USB technology has been around since 1996, and is a feature found on most modern computing devices.
If your device is denied access to one of its USB features, do some troubleshooting to isolate and resolve the problem.
Viruses
Some computers come with a security feature that automatically denies access to a USB device, such as a flash drive, if harmful content is detected.
Installing an anti-virus software application and regularly scanning the computer and any connected USB devices can help you avoid experiencing denied access to a USB device.
Avoid opening USB flash drive files that you cannot identify or do not recognize, as these types of files are how viruses find their way onto unprotected computers.

Incompatibility

Inserting an incompatible device into your computer's USB port can also cause you to be denied access to your device's USB features.
For instance, if your computer supports USB 1.0 technology and you insert a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 connector, the computer can experience interfacing problems that may cause a "USB access denied" prompt or situation.
If other USB devices begin to malfunction after inserting an incompatible USB cable into your computer, turning the computer off and back on again may resolve the situation.



Formatting
USB flash drives, also known as pen or thumb drives, are among the most common types of USB devices used in conjunction with computers.
Most USB flash drives are formatted using one of three types of formatting methods: FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS.
If you've formatted a USB flash drive using one method, used it on the computer and then reformatted the drive using another method, you can be denied access to the flash drive through the computer's USB port.
Wiping the flash drive clean and reformatting it again can resolve this type of problem.

Considerations

Many computer accessories, including printers and pointing devices, connect through the machine's USB ports and can interface interchangeably with multiple computing devices.
This feature increases the risks of picking up viruses and experiencing unauthorized reformatting. Limiting the amount of computers your USB devices accesses can help you avoid these situations.
Damaged USB cables can also make it impossible to access USB devices when they are connected to your computer.
USB cable damage usually occurs at the points where the cable and its connectors meet. Replace any damaged USB cables.
You have to be the computers administrator to change any values on any hard drive on your computer.
Click start control panel user accounts on the users tab click the name of the computer Administrator you must have full control.
Click start click to open on my computer you should see your usb drive could be E: or something right click select properties there will be an array of options
select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box then click permissions make sure you have all 3 boxes ticked full control changes and read in windows 7
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
Click start right click on my computer select open
Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
Click Properties in the menu that comes up
Click the Sharing tab
Click permissions
And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.

Try inserting the pen drive into another computer to see if you can open the data on this pen drive.
If not you may need to format the pen drive.

Transcend 16 gb pendrive is not recognised


Right-click on COMPUTER. Select PROPERTIES, Go to DEVICE MANAGER. Under UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS, check all the USB ports to see if they are working properly. If the USB PORT in which you have inserted your pen-drive, is showing an error, right-click over it and select PROPERTIES and make a TROUBLESHOOT.

If this troubleshooting doesn't help you, use another computer to check if your Pen-drive is working there. If the problem persists, go to the manufacturer's service center and ask for a replacement or repair.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNISED: One of the USB device attached to this computer has malfunctioned and windows does not recognised it.


The problem you have stated can be due to several causes. Please eject your USB drive from your computer and insert it again. If windows does not detect it, then restart your computer and try again. If the problem is still there, please check the Device Manager if the USB port is properly working and if it is possible to use the troubleshoot. The best way to check whether your USB device is properly working or not, insert it to another computer other than your's. If the problem persists, check your USB device's warranty period and simply go for the replacement and contact your retailer or service provider.

You can go to Device Manger by following the steps below:

My Computer Icon>Right Click on the Icon>Properties>Device Manager

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hope this helps,

Please do not panic

Please try the following

1) Plug the USB drive into the PV
2) Click on my computer
3) Right click on the USB drive and click format

If this fails then try a differnt USB port and also try a differnt PC

If both of the above fail then unfortunatley you have a faulty drive and it will need to be replaced/refunded

Removeable Disk Not Recognised. I have my USB labelled SONY USB 2.0 I GB. once I plug it on my computer never recognised. So am asking you to get better solutions, Regards, charles


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
