How to recover dead USB

My USB won't work on any computers, it doesn't light up and doesn't show up in My Computer. It's supposed to be under Removable Disk L: but it's simply not there. I don't know what to do, can anyone help me? (I really need the files on it, if not, at least the usb)

It's a Sandisk, Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive.

    I am having similar problem, but my usb key lights up briefly when you first plug it in. Do you think it is dead? or is it just not being read properly?

    I have SanDisk 4GB Cruzer Micro. I bumped against it with my office chair. Now, whenever I put it into my PC the drive lights up but my computer doesn't even recognize that its there. At best, I get a pop-up that says "USB Device not recogized."

    My SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2GB doesn't light up or show up in the My Computer. But I haven't bumped against anything, dropped it, or done any damage to it. In fact, I just opened it right out of its brand new packaging.

You don't have backup copies of these "important" files? Why would you not have a copy on your PC/Laptop, that you copy back and forth?
Good news is $10 gets you a new one

Hi Angela ,
You' re probably facing a power or usb issue . Consider opening the enclosure ( will be lost , i presume ) and placing the drive in an external usb box ( available in any computer store starting from 20 $ ) to be reconnected to your pc . If this doesn' t help , it means your device is dead . There then still is a small opportunity to recover the lost data by using a recovery software like Recuva ( free ) or TenorShare Recovery ( payable ) .
This should help you solving your issue .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

When I plug in the Toshiba HardDrive, it doesn't show on the drives list. I inserted it before and it showed just fine. I even stored some files inside it. but now it's not showing at all.

try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this program to recover your files.

Either the external USB interface is damaged (non-fatal) or the internal drive is having an issue.
If you know what you are doing, you can remove the drive from the casing and mount it internally in a PC and hopefully retrieve your data that way.
If you aren't tech savvy, you may want to try a place like to send the drive in for data recovery.

My 1 tb wont work on my computer anymore i was using it one day and then it just goes off and shows up in my computer to eject but wont open or anything

Please check your USB ports and make sure that there is no shorting or over current.Usually external Hard drives gets fused under the above circumstances.Please check on other USB ports or another PC.If it doesn't responds please contact your nearest service center and ask them for a data recovery.It won't come under the warranty claim if the damage is severe.

I have a really old computer and I put my flash drive into the where it is supposed to go, but nothing came up. What am I supposed to do?

Some Flash Drives don't come with an "autorun" installed in it, if you have a Windows 7 Operative System, it might be installing the driver for it. If it's already installed, go to your computer menu and check if the drive shows up there (In the "removable drives/devices" area).If it doesn't show up, try plugin it in another USB port, your port might be the on not working.

How to recover dead USB?

Firstly, if the files are THAT important, why is your ONLY copy on a device like that? That's your first mistake.
Secondly, they cost like $10 now
