Question about Sony Micro Vault Pro USD-2G (SONYUSD2G) 2 GB Hard Drive

Open Question

My computer won't recognize the 8gb Sony Microvault pro

The storage device was working fine since I bought it 1-2 years ago.  Now my computer or several other that I have tried, will not read the device.  The blue light on the device is on, but under "my computer", there is no icon for the device. i have the exact same problem. a box sometimes comes up saying that my device can perform faster but no matter which usb port i plug it into it won't recognise it. i really need help with this all my work and personal stuff is on it!

SOURCE: my sony microvault 2gb hardrive has malfuctioned

Hi, This usually means the USB controller has failed, however it can also be a damaged driver or registry entry on the computer it's connected to. Try connecting it to another PC, let me know wether or not it works. If it does we need to address the problem on your computer, if it doesn't I'll refer you to an appropriate recovery center, if the latter is the case let me know your city and country/state. I will recommend an appropriate recovery facility. Chris

SOURCE: my 4GB microvault wont start, it says"USB device not recognized"

This is strange as usualy these are quite reliable. It may have crashed.


If your computer is the problem then it will show in the below areas

If you are using Windows go to "control panel/ aministrative tasks/ computer management/ disc management. This will show if the disc is recognised on the system.

if not try :-

the same (control panel / administrative tasks/ computer management / device manager/ universal serial bus controller.

This will see if the card is working.

if not then the card may have been pulled out of your friends computer whilst still working. This may have caused a error on the card rendering in unusable.

Hopefuly your 4gb has not crashed.

Hope this helps

Garmin nuvi 1390t won't read or recognize microsd


The 1390t works with microSD cards. Your 8GB card is actually a microSDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will not work in older devices.
You need to go with microSD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I just bought a new Gateway NV53 laptop but my P4350 Lexmark all in one printer does not recognize any of the USB ports.


Did you check whether the USB ports are recognizing other USB devices such as Microvault or Flash Drive? If all other USB devices are recognized except the Printer, then reinstall the USB Drivers. You can uninstall the USB drivers from the Device Manager and restart the Computer. The USB Devices are listed under Universal Serial Bus Controllers in the Device Manager.
