USB key not recognised

My USB key behaved erratically one day. It got a 'drive not recognised' error from Windows 2 or 3 times but later it came up in Explorer. Then it disappeared when I tried to open a file. But later still it worked OK. Todday I cannot get any sense from it at all, whether in a variety of Windows machines from Vista to Windows 8 or in a Mac. It has one or two important files. Any idea how to get them?

Look for General.
Clear the Ignore Other Applications checkbox.

run a check disk on the memory stick - most likely a good indicator that the flash drive is on its way out as they normally have a life span of about a year or two.

1. Download this tool:

2. Format

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)

Cant get my sumsung S2 external hard drive to work..my computer does not recognise it


If you are trying to use it on a computer with Windows XP or later installed it and it isn't automatically installing the drivers and finding the drive for you then there are typically only 2 possibilities of what's wrong.

1. Your external drive is probably Dead.

2. The USB port you are using is dead. Try plugging it in to a different USB port.

Before you write the drive off as DEAD, make sure you try plugging it in to a different computer and see if it works on the that computer.

Can not move files to usb drive,use system information or system restore,when opening a program windows installer starts up?


Sounds like you have a corrupted registry. Programs and files are behaving erratically or as if they are not correctly or fully registered or installed. You may need to reinstall your operating system. Good luck.

Drive not recognised


Sounds like a possible problem with the usb ports. Does the usb drive work on other pc's? If so, does your laptop recognize other usb devices (flash drives, mouse, keyboard etc.)?

If your laptop won't recognize other usb devices all the time, try this: go into device manager, go to the bottom, expand 'universal serial bus controllers'. Starting at the bottom of the list, right click on each item and left-click 'delete'. At some point you will likely lose your mouse/tochpad as it is probably an internal usb device. If this happens, press the power button on the laptop once to shut it down. Restart it, and windows will re-detect the deleted usb hubs and hopefully fix the problem. If this doesn't do it, go back and delete the other usb root hubs and host controllers. This is totally safe for your system and often fixes this issue. Windows will always re-detect hardware at boot time.

let me know if this helps or not :)

Usb not recognised


Hello ak1979 ...

1. You're plugging in your Transend USB flash drive to your computer's USB port (as you've done many times successfully before with this SAME flash drive)?

2. It says "windows not recognise usb drive due to malfunction"?
a. Is that EXECTLY what the error says?
b. Is "it" an error dialog (window that pops up), or an error message from your Windows Event error logs? If a dialog, are there any pertinent error message entries in your Windows Event (System) log [Start > Run > type "eventvwr.msc" (without quotes), then "OK"]?

Try a bit of deductive troubleshooting:
  1. Restart (Reboot) your system [for a fresh start, if you will].
  2. Try plugging in your USB flash drive again, but in a DIFFERENT USB port.
  3. Try plugging in ANY OTHER "known good" USB device into the same USB port(s) used thus far that failed.
NOTE: If you EVER get any indication Windows recognizes the flash drive (like no error msg, or it shows in "My Computer"), IMMEDIATELY perform a "Check Disk" on it:
  1. Start > Run... > type "cmd" (without quotes), then "OK".
  2. Type "chkdsk DRIVE_LTR: /f" (without quotes), then hit "Enter" [where DRIVE_LTR is the drive letter of your USB drive]. EXAMPLE: chkdsk E: /f
Good luck, and please post back:
  • to provide any corrections/updates/clarifications.
  • if you have any further questions.
  • to let me know how things work out.

ICR-B130 Handheld Digital Recorder


Ha this is a greatly contested two posiblities.

1/ Are you on a business network? The most common reason for this error is because the user has mapped network drives on low drive letters e.g. mapped drives on E F G H I etc. When you connect recorder windows trys to assign the physically available drive letter. However that drive is being used by a mapped network drive so windows simply doesnt recognise the newly attched device hence the sanyo software not recognising the device.

2/ Some Dell PC's struggle to supply enough power to all USB ports so try connecting to the back of the PC or removing some USB devices and reconnect the B130.

This error cannot be produced without a recorder being connect so it recognised to a point just. Just not correctly.

Doesnt start up


Hi. My Inovix mp3/4 player suffered a similar fate when it crashed during a Firmware reload. The player went completely dead and wasn't even recognised by the computer when plugged into the USB port. I basically kept on trying - a couple of times whenever I used the computer - using different ports. 2 days later - 'ding-dong' - Windows XP suddenly recognised something was in the port, and I tentatively attempted a Firmware reload. Success! (Don't ask me to explain it tho'...)
