Heating up, light not coming on

When I plug the flashdrive into my computer it is not showing up. I also tried on my wife's Mac and it does not show up there either. This is an 8 gb cruzer.

    Have the same problem with a brand new 8gb--the older 1 gb works fine.
    I suspect bad hardware

Sounds like you have .dst files on your flashdrive. That is not the native language of this machine. If you convert files to .PES files then you will see the image

Plug the flash drive into the windows PC first and open "Computer". Find the drive and format it to Fat32 or NTFS. Now plug it into the mac and copy the pictures too it. Now your Windows computer should see the files. Mac will default to making the flash drive use HFS+ filesystem. Windows doesn't recognize this format at all. Mac will see fat32 and ntfs just fine though.

Hi. my flash drive light comes on as i put it in. it stays on momentarily but after three seconds or so th ligh goes off. it doen't even show up on my computer


Flashing light means your flashdrive is being read. Try it on another computer, if it still can not be detected then it is broken.

Hope this helped! =)

The drive is not recognized by Windows or Mac


You should give Test Disk a try. It's a little complicated at first but if you read the tutorial it's easy.

Here's a link to their wiki page.

SanDisk 8GB lights up but wont register


This one is just a hunch. The drive might be bad but this is worth a try. Its possible the drive letter somehow changed on the flashdrive. Plug in the drive, RIGHT click on "My Computer" and select "Manage" from the drop down menu. Now select "Disk Management" from the list. If you see your flash drive on the list, right click on it and select "Change drive letter and paths", then click on "change", now assign it a new letter like "F" for example. Click ok, ok, ok. If it showed up the the list and it's still not registering, unplug it and plug it back in. Hope that helps.

Problem


Hello!
Hopefully I can try to walk you through a process that I would use.  First check to see if the flashdrive is damaged.  Usually the cases don't break, but the USB connector itself takes a lot of hits/damage/wear.  You should be able to see 4 metallic contacts on the USB connector and they should be in good shape.  Blow out any dirt/garbage in the connector as well.
Next is to see when you plug it in if the LED on it lights up at all.  If there is no light whatsoever, it is one of two things, either the flashdrive is totally broken or you have a failled USB port.  Either one is possible.  If possible, take the flashdrive and test it on another system, or at least another USB port.  That will give you some important information.
Assuming that the LED lights, then it is a question of getting Windows to recognize the drive.  If there is nothing important on the drive, fdisk the drive in DOS, then format it, and then Windows should recognize it, allowing it to be used.
If you have no LED lighting on the flashdrive, after testing on another system as well, get another flashdrive (or return this one if under warranty), since there are no real parts to service/fix.
Hope this helps out!
