Re: flash drive not recognised by computer

The computer should only neede usb drivers, but you should take that computer online, go to the manufacter's website ( of the jumpdrive ) and download the latest drive WITHOUT it connected. Then restart the computer and insert the drive.

How to install a USB flash drive

Just plug your USB flash drive into the USB port of your computer or other USB-equipped device and drag the files you want to take with you into the folder that appears on your screen. Your files are instantly transferred to your USB flash drive. To transfer the items on your USB flash drive onto another computer, simply plug your USB flash drive into the computer that you want the files transferred to, open the folder that appears on your screen, and drag the desired files onto the computer's desktop.

1.) Insert Flash Drive into the USB Port of your computer.

-Where is my USB port? It is usually found in newer model computers in a hidden compartment on the front of the hard drive and in the back of the hard drive on older computers. The port for laptops is found on the side or back of the computer.

2.) Wait for the hardware to automatically install on your computer.

After the hardware is installed, it is ready to use!

3.) In most cases, an Options Window will automatically open. Select "Open folder to view files" Click "OK."

How do I delete files from flash drive--wipe clean

Cleaning a Flash Drive

Put the flash drive into your computer's USB port (assuming you have the proper driver loaded onto the computer). Go to "My Computer" and highlight the drive that shows up, right-click and select "Format." That'll wipe it completely clean.

Or, if you just want to remove the files, do the same thing but instead of formatting, just highlight the files and right-click to delete the file, pix, or whatever.

While transfering a file from pc to hd computer froze. I then unpluged the drive and then pc come back to normal now the external will not get recognised

It sounds like you have a serious problem. If you cannot get the HDD to read at all and your computer will not recognize it, you have a bad "sector" of the drive.

As a metaphor:
Your drive has little "squares," each square stores information on it. Your computer will break the data down into these squares and store it in segments. When your computer freezes its because it is "confused" as to why it cannot store the data. When you remove the HDD, the computer then assumes it's to stop and resumes regular activity.

The solution:
A) Go to “My Computer” right click on the Hard Drives icon and go to “Properties,” then go to “Tools” and then to “Error Checking.” Also then “Defragment”

If that doesn’t work:
B) Try to reinstall the updated drivers on the manufactures web-site. After you have reinstalled the drivers reformat the Hard Drive. Reformat your hard drive by going into "My Computer" and right clicking the HDD and selecting "Format." Follow the prompt.

Good luck!

How do i download data onto my scandisk


You would access it from My Computer like your normal harddrive. Note if the removable drive is showing up in My Computer then this is a sign that another device is already been assigned to the drive your USB drive wants by default. The links below will help you assign a drive letter to the USB drive.

Cannot transfer any files from my computer to my external hard

Did you install the drivers for the drive? Is it recognised in Windows as a device? If not, try reconnecting and Windows should prompt you to install the drivers, Assuming the drive is recognised by WIndows, then are a few causes for not transferring data. I've attached a link to Western Digital's FAQ regarding Data Transfer problems with your drive....

Several page of possible solutions are listed above.... however, you can refine the search if it is only happening when running specific apps or @ specific times. The answer you seek is located in this link. If you can provide more details on the type of file(s) you are trying to transfer and how, I'll refine the solution for you....

My 2 GB cruzer just stopped working

Hi there
there are many things that could go wrong it is either a usb driver error which would cause a driver conflict and the device not to be recongised or the drive is dead since flash memory has a limited read and write life .To solve this problem you need to try both or one (if one of the solutions work)

(To solve usb driver conflict)
try using it on another computer and if it recognises then follow the instructions on here 

(To recover files)
Try it on another computer
if it recognises on the other computer go to start>run and type cmd
then type chkdsk(space)(letter of drive with :)(space)/F 
this should fix the errors on it 
If it recognises on the otehr computer but files are missing you can recover your data by using recuva ( just save it, install and open it (it has instructions

USB flash disk not working

Assuming you are using a Cruzer Micro Drive with U3 Smart, things can be a little confusing because the drive actually shows up as two independent devices. When you insert the drive, there should be two devices showing up in your list of drives. One of them is installed as a CD Rom Drive and the other one is a Removable Drive. If you double click on the CD Rom Drive instead of the Removable Drive and you don't have any U3 applications mapped to the CD Rom Drive, then you'll get an insert disk message because Windows thinks that the CD Rom Drive is empty. Just use the Removable Drive if you want to simply install and transfer files.
