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 plug my Flash Drive into the uSB pot and the orange light shows for a second and goes off. My IT dept. says its dead. The flash drive is only 2 years old!

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

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 ,

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 ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), 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.

Won't link to my computer and flashing red light inside.


Is this a new one or have you used it for some time? If it is a new one, it might not be getting enough power to work.
If you connect it through a USB hub, disconnect the hub. Connect the HDD directly to the computer and see.
If it doesn't work, find a USB cable with two USB jacks on one side. Connect both to USB ports at the back of the computer (and of course, connect the other end to the HDD) and see.

Best of luck!

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 www.SuperTech-IT.com to send the drive in for data recovery.

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.

Since it doesn't show up in both pc's then the iOmega is faulty - it must have suffered a shock during transfer and this is terminal. Your only hope of recovering what's in it is to dismantle it, take out the hard disk and put it in the desktop - if even there it doesn't show up then it's dead, junk it.

How to recover dead USB


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
