Have photos and software on my i.t.flashdrive but now my laptop wont even find the flashdrive! is there any software i need to download?

No soft needed, it's a simple USB stick , the default driver is used for all. Try the stick in another pc, if it's the same then the memory chip inside it has failed and all the data on it is lost for good - junk it.

MultiBoot USB Flash - Survival Guide

Grub4DOS is a boot manager
that can be easily installed to a USB flash.
It allows booting multiple operating systems
from a simple graphical user interface.


1.) Format the USB flash drive in the FAT32 or NTFS filesystem. (Windows)
Download and start HPUSBFW.EXE )
-REMINDER!!! all data will be deleted on the USB flash-

1.a) Download necessary files
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1

1.b) Extract the downloaded zip files into separate folders.
For example:
Grub4DOS to C:Grub4DOS
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1 to C:
Grub4Dos gui Installer 1.1

If your flashdrive is not already plugged into the computer, plug it in now.

2.a) The next step is to run the Grub4DOS Installer.
Browse to the Installer's unzipped folder using Windows Explorer.

2.b) Run the grubinst_gui.exe program (Windows XP)
Right-click on grubinst_gui.exe Run as administrator (Windows 7)


2.c) Once the program is started, select the Disk option,
then click the Disk Refresh button and then select
your flashdrive from the dropdown box.
IMPORTANT:If you accidentally select the wrong drive,
you may not be able to boot your system without doing a boot repair.

2.d) Now click the Part List Refresh button,
then the dropdown box and finally select the Whole disk (MBR) option

2.e) Click the Install button to install Grub4DOS to the MBR
of the flashdrive.
Hopefully, you'll get the message that the installation was successful.

3.) The next step is to copy the grldr file to the flashdrive's
root folder.Using Windows Explorer, browse to the folder
where you unzipped
the Grub4DOS program and copy the file to the flashdrive.

3.a) Grub4DOS is now installed on the flashdrive.

4.)Download file

4.a)You need to copy the menu.lst file to USB Flash

4.b)Create a folder Boot on a USB flash drive.
in this folder create new folders

4.c) Download file

4.d) On USB flash-open the folder Boot
Within-we see Splash folder. Copy the file Snaiya into it.

5.) Add Puppy Linux on a multiboot USB flash


5.a) Download the Puppy ISO image

5.b) Create a folder Puppy on a USB flash drive.

5.c) Take from the downloaded ISO, file
PUP_420.SFS (from the folder Puppy)
Rename it to pup_420.sfs
and copy it to
USB flash.

5.d) Copy all other files from the downloaded ISO (from the folder Puppy)
to the folder /Boot/Puppy/ (Create a folder on a USB flash)

5.e) In the menu.lst add a:

title Puppy
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/Puppy/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=100000
initrd /boot/Puppy/initrd.gz

5.f) Preserve the changes and now menu.lst looks like this:

gfxmenu (hd0,0)/boot/Splash/Snaiya
timeout 30
default 0

title Puppy
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/Puppy/vmlinuz ramdisk_size=100000
initrd /boot/Puppy/initrd.gz

title Boot from CD-rom
cdrom --init
map --hook
chainloader (cd0)

title ShutDown PC

title Reboot PC

5.g) Puppy on our MultibootUSB flash-is ready for operation.
(Now we can restart our computer and see how it looks and works)

Depending on the options your motherboard, it is necessary when starting
your computer keyboard press: F8 or F12 or Esc, etc..
Thus you will appear a menu where you choose your USB flash drive.

Front usb configration

Just talking from my experience, I have noticed that some boards have problems with USB ports that are connected via a cable (yours is, I presume). Like the P5GC-MX I have in my CCTV server, the front ports only allow Flashdrives and low voltage devices but it doesn't accept USB Harddisks (those using laptop harddrives).

Can you attach flashdrives or is it really dead?

How about your pin connections? was it connected properly using the cable to the board?

What type of casing are you using? I noticed some cheap casings (those especially that don't use FoxConn, have problems with their front USB ports)

Plse can u run thru the procedure to set up my new purchase pny 4gb flashdrive??

Most flashdrives (aka pen drives or usb sticks) do not require installation. They are a storage device that you add information to. If you could post your OS (either XP, Vista, Linux or Mac OS X) we can go through the process of adding and reading information from the drive.

Don't know whow to install my new PNY flashdrive 1GB attache'premium USB 2.0 drive

Some questions first. Does your system detect a new hardware? If yes, then do the following. If your flash drive comes with a CD, insert it then try installing( the software needed might be in there).
If your system doesnt detect your flash, then it might be that your usb port has been disabled from the Bios settings. But first check your Device Manager to see if your usb ports are working well ( From Control panel- system-Device Manager). If everything is working properly in the device Manager, then call on a technician to look at the Bios settings so as not to complicate things.
