"USB device not recognized" error message MacBook Air

When I plugged the USB drive into my MacBook Air, I received a "device not recognized" error, and the blue light was constant (did not flash). Subsequently, the device does not appear to be recognized by any computer and the blue light does not come on. On a PC, under Device Manager, the computer can see the USB drive and says it is working properly, but I cannot open it. This may or may not be related to me unplugging it from my laptop without closing all the open files. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help!

The drivers must be up to date and written for your device. If there are no drivers, it will not communicate and thus it may look like it is working and in place, but the linkage is not there.

Hi there, some time its happens because of the drivers. I give you a suggestion that, change the USB connector & use other one. If the same thing happened then install the USB driver again from the drivers disk. Then restart your computer and try to use that device. If again you face problem, then visit the shop & ask the person for check the Device. I guess your device have a problem. Because you also mentioned that, your already try these in other computer & face the same problem. You have one year warranty so you can get a new one from the shop.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

The thumb drive might have some fault.
Plug it in other OS mainly windows XP and Linux.
If still same problem persists after tried in Linux, problem is with pen drive.
You can ask for a replacement from the dealer as it has guarantee for 5years.

the only logical answer would be that you have updates available from microsoft that are disabled. youll need to allow these to download and instal before this will work.

Thanks for asking your question on Fixya. ;-)
What error messages are you seeing, if any? Does Apple OS recognize it at all? Also, did you format the drive on a windows computer? How about deleting the partition and plug it back into the macbook so the macbook can set it up for you. If you plug it into the windows machine, what messages did you get from that?

Imation Model D353fue not recognized by MACBook Pro


It is a "plug-and-play" USB-device, and *should* be recognized, if the hardware inside the case is in working order. So, exercise that "warranty" to get it replaced.

Try connecting it to a Windows PC (XP/Vista/7/8), to see if Windows will recognize it.

This may sound stupid but make sure it is plugged in. Check the operating system and hardware requirements, if they don't meet the requirements, software will not recognize the device. Try different usb ports because sometimes computers have selective hearing and make sure your computer is initially recognizing the device when it is plugged in. If all else fails, don't try to install the software and head over to computer/my computer in the start menu. Right click and select properties. Click device manager in the hardware section or the bar to the left and look in the cd drive section. If you see your drive, right click and try any option about installing.

Clarion DXZ385USB will not play from the usb input


It is not compatible. I had the same receiver and mp3 player. according to the Clarion website, an "ERROR 5" is the message for a compatibility problem. You probably got an "ERROR 2"(format problem) when you had the player plugged in and then cycled through the sources(that's how I received the error).

I have since bought an Ipod and the USB input works just fine. Clarion says the deck is MTP compatible, but it will not run a lot of MTP devices. Only Ipods and certain memory sticks. The Creative Zen Vision M is read as an MTP device when it it plugged into anything like a computer, Xbox 360, and the Clarion USB receivers. The Clarion units even attempt to read it as an MPT device, but will not play. It is not an issue with the receiver or the MP3 files. The Creative Vision M is not a compatible device, sorry.

Sandisk Cruzer 1GB drive suddenly not working


DO NOT panic! Try this: restart your computer and plug your USB in again(this helps to clean the buffer), see if you drive can be recognized.

If you still can't access the data inside, try this data recovery program Wondershare Data Recovery. Get the program here,

Mac Data Recovery (Mac OS version)
Windows Data Recovery (Windows Version)

Take care - Before those items are recovered, stop saving more files to the USB in case the file data are overwritten!

USB device is not recognized


Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.

Cannot get my USB memory stick to install on XP


I have a sandisk cruzer, titanium 512mb. Model: SDCZ3 512 I have used this to store massive amounts of data that I frequently need to access. Recently, when I plugged the device into my computer's USB, I received the following message: "USB Device Not Recognized" After double clicking on this message, I got the USB Root Hub. The last item on the tree stated: "Unknown Device." I double-clicked on the unknown device, and in the Device Status box, received the following message: "No Drivers installed for this device. If you are having problems with this device, click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter." I attempted to troubleshoot, but the device remains unrecognized. How can I access the data I have stored on this device? I have even tried to install the drivers automatically, but it would not istall succesfully.
