Question about Epson Stylus CX6600 All-In-One InkJet Printer

How do I recover data on a flash drive that is NOT recognized?

Yes, this flash drive is over one year old and has never been abused. It has been dependable (up to this point) day in and day out. I have 'no problem' taking it apart (if need be) and sacrificing the drive itself AFTER I retrieve the contents. I would appreciate any/ all possible options at this point.

Thank you, in advance, for your time and cosideration.

The problem with flash memory is that it is extremely corruptible, flash memory can corrupt when u least expect it.

it is unlikely that u will be able to recovery any files off of the memory.

if it is a card then u might be able to but probably not

Hi, unless you can get the computer to detect the drive you will have to send the memory stick to a recovery/repair service. if you can get it detected at home, you can use a data recovery software. like File Scavenger

Posted on Mar 12, 2009

  • Ekse Mar 12, 2009

    Try FileScavenger in any case. http://www.quetek.com/prod02.htm
    see if the free/test version can recover files from the drive. if it can't you could try forceing a driver to install on the unregonized usb device and then try recovery again.

    installing a customer driver is done similiarly to this guide
    http://www.rr-cirkits.com/locobuffer-usb...


    Instead of going with the automatic you would need to use the advanced option - select driver yourself and then locate the correct one for the drive. You could compair the driver on a working drive and then install the same driver to the faulty one and see if it helps.

    Filescavenger will do the rest, its a awesome software. aslong as the drive actually works.

    if the drive is faulty and completely unreadable, recovery service is your only option and that may not be succesfull either.

    Also try the memory card on another computer or another cardreader keep pluging it in and out, eventually if its just a temporary problem it should install automatically. You can also try turning off the computer pluging in the memory card and then starting the computer up with the memory card connected. sometimes this can fix thatkind of a power problem with the card.

I have been using this Transcend FlashDrive 4Gb data stick for more than 2 years. Suddenly my computer refuses to recognize it. I tried in other computers too, but to no avail. How do I go about...


Try to find an IT Technician and ask them to use data recovery software eg. "Ontrack Easy Recovery Professional" to recover the drive.

If this solution fails then it likely that the data stick electronic components have completely failed.

If above does not work, you may have to format the pen drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the pen drive and recover your files.

My computer does not recognize the 4gb USB Flash drive when plugged. Truied on 2 separtate computers now. Windows XP operating systems.


Hi m_j_lester

Do the computers that you tried it on make a sound or give any indication that a new device has been plugged in? If not then it could just be broken. It's not uncommon for these devices to fail altogether and they have a shelf life of about 10 years (depending on how much abuse they get of course!).

If you need any more help then let me know.

Scott.

I really need to recover files from my sandisk cruzer


Have you tried this? restart your computer and plug your USB in again(this helps to clean the buffer), see if you drive can be recognized.

If you still can't access the data inside, try this data recovery program Wondershare Data Recovery. Get the program here,

Windows Data Recovery (Windows Version)
Mac Data Recovery (Mac OS version)

Take care - Before those items are recovered, stop saving more files to the device in case the file data are overwritten!

My U3 Smart SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2.0GB USB Drive Not Recognized


We can fix it -- and recover the data (provided it is recoverable -- which it generally is). If we don't get your data back, we ship the drive back to you and you pay nothing. We've been recovering data for over 16 years and are successful about 85% of the time.
