Question about Verbatim ® Store `n` Go USB Flash Drive, 8GB

2 Answers

USB port is not recognized in any of my computers or in any port.

My USB flash drive is not recognizable in any computer. 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!

It seems that the issue is related with the flash drive itself, I have came across with such problems many times. I guess now it's time you should go and ask for a replacement.Most of the flash drives comes with 5 years warranty. You may want to call verbatim customer support for warranty. Contact details

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. Bsod or Blue Screen of Death errors may be caused by either a software problem or a hardware problem. It doesn't really means that your 8GB usb drive causes the error it depends on the error code that you will see on the Bsod screen.


ezrahite_8.png
On the example image above under Technical Information you will see STOP: 0x00000050 is the error code that causes the blue screen and SPCMDCON.SYS is the program or file that is affected. You need to get the error code and the program or file that is causing the Bsod.

You can give me the error code and the the program or file that is causing the Bsod so that i can explain to you what you need to do.

Thanks for using Fixya.

After reading the description, I think you need to try updating BIOS and latest device drivers for USB. Because USB are getting power on that means there would not be any fault to from the motherboard.

So please try updating latest BIOS for your notebook.
If you can provide me the product no for your notebook and the operating system which you are using currently then I can find the one for you.

Otherwise you can also do the same.

Type in the product no. on www.hp.com. Then go to software and driver download page, select the proper OS and search in BIOS ROM pack available for your notebook.

I hope this will help.

First, try it in a different USB port on your computer.

Connect it to a different computer.
If it is still _not_ recognized, then it is "dead".
If it is recognized, then it's your computer that has the problem.

Windows does not recognize the device ?


Hello raigangarkam,

There's a chance that that particular USB slot on your computer may not be working.

You may try to attach another USB device on that port to check if that works or not.

You might also want to try & attach your 2GB Cruzer flash drive on another USB port or another computer & check if it recognizes it.

If it still won't be recognized on the other computer, you might need to replace that 2GB Cruzer USB Flash Drive.

Hope this helps.

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
Andrea

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.

Usb device not recognize


You mentioned that you uninstalled the unknown device from the Device manager. If you uninstall it then connected your usb flash drive you will see an error again on your device manager. This means that the driver for your usb port is not properly installed.

To install it, visit dell website, look for the model of your machine and locate the driver, download it then install from your machine.
