The most probable reason such bad contact in place of the join.

Try clean contacts first compressed by air but afterwards alcohol.

I have a 16 GB verbatim brand jump drive that I cannot open up. I have tried other usb ports on different computers. Is it common for jump drives to go bad? Do you have any suggestions? Thank you!


If not "safely removed" USB drives can go bad. If your system recognizes the drive when plugged in you can try doing a scan disk on it and check for any errors that may be preventing you from accessing the file system.

Plug in the USB drive, check my computer and see if the drive is there, if it is, right click the drive, click properties, and tools and select the option to scan the disk.

If you do not see the drive in My Computer, click start, Run, type DISKMGMT.MSC and click OK. Check and see if your drive is being recognized in Disk Management.

If you still do not see it in Disk Management, they you may just have a faulty jump drive, at which point you should contact Verbatim to see if they have any other recommendations or if it is still under warranty.

1)open "run"

2)type "H:/"

3)press "ENTER"

and most probably the error message is due to the malfunctioned usb port so i prefer plug your pendisk in a other port

I bent the insert on the drive and it work?


I would first try it in a different computer. If it does not work on the other computer it is unlikely it would work anywhere. It is possible you can take it to a local computer tech service and they can try and read or fix it, but I would think it is unlikely.

If it does work on the other computer I would inspect the USB port for damage on your computer. Or the place where you plug in the flash drive into the computer, if it looks at all damaged, I would contact the manufacture for repair. You can also try other usb devices to check if it still works.

As well if the flash drive does work on other computers, and there is no visible damage to the USB port, or plug in spot, then there may be a driver or software issue on your computer.

USB


Its more likely that there could be a loose connection to the motherboard. If not try to attach some ports to the same place on the motherboard and if they also dont work motherboard at fault if they do obviously your old ports are dead for some reason. Good luck.

Maxtor one touch 4 mini- not connected! The single USB cable is in the Computer USB port.So far so good. When the second USB connector-with 2 cables is inserted to another Computer’s USB Port I start...


Quite strange.. I would suggest that maybe one of the usb ports is faulty.. Or ofcourse, one of the cables.. Or the usb port has been mis-wired inside the pc. That has been done before. Anyway, do you have access to 2 usb drives.. I mean micro/thumb drives? I'd test each port by itself first, to see if they operate correctly, then if they do, use the two usb drives in the two usb ports at the same time, to test read & write.. I guess there are other things you could try, like going to control panel, system, hardware, device manager & checking on the status of the usb ports. That may tell you something worthwhile. Whatever you do, test each port with the one single cable. Yer, this is a strange fault. Let me know how you go. Rgds,

Hi,
Windows XP has Drivers within the operating system to Install and setup USB Ports.
Here Are your options to Provide A Fix.
1: )The USB Port May Be Disconnected From The motherboard.
2:) The Device you are trying to Connect ( Pen-Drive ) May be faulty And Not Recognised By The Computer.

3:) The USB Cable Or Socket May Be Faulty.

Solution:- Try Connecting the Device To An Alternative ( different ) USB Socket On The PC.

Solution:- Try Connecting a Different Device to the USB Port. i.e MP3 player Or Digital Camera et,c.

Solution:- Check that the USB Header Cables ( from Motherboard To USB Ports ) Are connected Or incorrectly Connected.

Back USB ports


I think maybe you are puting the usb connection in upside down or you are trying to put it in an iee1394(firewire) port or the LAN connector.
