Question about Verbatim ® Store `n` Go USB Flash Drive, 8GB
It shows up in device manager as unknown device. But in "My Computer" the drive does not show up at all. There is no light that is blinking or turning on when I plug it in. I have tried it in multiple desktops and a couple of laptops, various different ports. The message that comes up is "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)." In Device Manager, the yellow exclamation point shows up and I've tried uninstalling it and then scanning for new hardware. It comes back with the yellow exclamation. I've pulled out the battery of my laptop, waited 30 minutes, and turned it back on. I've updated drivers and it says "The best driver for my device is already installed." Even though, when I first plug it in the usb port is will tell me that the "Device Driver Software was not successfully installed." I've checked on the verbatim website and there are no drivers that I can install manually. My computer has been updated with all the needed updates. I just need to open it long enough to copy the files onto my computer. Is there any way to override the windows stopping the device? This was the replacement Verbatim store n go 8G that has done this same thing. I have MONTHS of work on this drive and I would like to be able to recover it. Thank you in advance!
Have you formatted this usb flash drive?
If you still want to get back all stored file, you'd better never format this drive, for the formatting process may erase everything on this drive. So, I hope you've not formatted it yet.
Here are some ways for you to save back your inner data and this hard drive:
1). Do not format this drive till you've saved all your stored data back.
2). Do not add any new file on this drive in case that anything new would rewrite your original data.
3). If you really know a little about data recovery things, you can directly apply some highly-recommended data recovery freeware online, such as Disk Drill https://www.cleverfiles.com/usb-flash-drive-recovery.html
4). Do not save the restored data on the same drive in case of data recovery failure.
5). Do not forget to format this drive after the data recovery process so that you can check whether this "not formatted error" problem could be resolved.
