If the Cruzer's light doesn't even turn on, then the USB port or the device must be damaged. Have you tried it on another computer ? If so, and it didn't work then it's the device's problem.

Dear, it is out of order thats why there is problem, don't attach it otherwise it will cause more problems, it gets hot due to the circuit shot. So, visit the repair shop for better solution.

Best regards.

I plug in the sundisk cruzer 2.0 GB USB device and all it does is blink. It will not show up on my computer for the drive.


Hello

If the computer recognize that there is a device plugged into the system, then just try to plug the flashdrive into another port at the back of your case.

If the computer does not recognize that there is a device plugged in, there is a problem with your flash drive. It still gets power from the computer(Bliking light), but there is no data transfer between computer and flash drive.

If it is still under warrenty, send the flash in for repairs(presuming that your USB ports work), otherwise try and see if it works on a other computer. If it does, the the problem is with the USB ports on your computer. I really hope this can be of help.

Best regards

When i plug my sandisk 2gb it dosent work!


Have you tried every USB port? Do any other things work on your USB ports? Is it USB 2.0 and your computer only does USB 1.0? Have you tried the sandisk in another computer? Does the USB port feel loose when the sandisk is inserted? Sounds like the sandisk may be bad.

SanDisk 4GB thumb drive not recognized by my computer


Try any other computer but not open drive only see if they can read it. Also change USB port, sometimes some ports dont accept devices. Also check for latest antivirus software last such case viruses dont let me read any of my USB drives. If driver works to oter PC then you have virus.

Pleomax 6gb USB Drive No Longer Recognized by My Computers


It's either the USB port, the drive electronics itself, or the USB cable.

First I'd try a different USB cable.

Problem with sandisk 2GB Micro USB Flash Drive


Work through My computer once putting the disk in the USB port. It should read "removable device". Click back and forth from c: drive to my computer to make the computer recognize it faster. Let me know what happens.
