Cruzer micro 4GB, unreadable in USB ports

To whom it may concern:
I have a 4GB Cruzer, and it was bumped while it was in a USB port. It was immediately unrecognized by the computer I was working on, and when I removed it from the USB port, it was slightly opened. Now, I have plugged it into at least 10 different computers, and no computer recognizes it. I don't get any errors, just void. How can I fix this problem and get to what is stored on this Cruzer?
Thank you for your time.

Re: Cruzer micro 4GB, unreadable in USB ports

I heard that if you plug you cruzer on a win 98 system and install the driver you pen drive will reborn
I'm trying it now, with no success.
But I’m having problems with the usb pci card and with the computer, so I can’t tell you if it works.
I’ll keep on trying.
When I get some results, I’ll return

Re: Cruzer micro 4GB, unreadable in USB ports

Sounds like your USB connector of the flash drive is damaged. Could be a loose/broken solder joint, or one of the pins on the USB connector could be damaged.

If it was my drive, I would open the case, solder a new connector on the board and backup the files.

Cruzer Micro USB Flash Drive ReadyBoost not working


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click Of Death"

If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

My computer keeps saying it cant find my 4GB

Does the device work in *ANY* USB port on your computer?

Do other USB devices (mouse, keyboard, printer) work in the USB port that you are trying to use?

Does the device work in any *OTHER* computer (laptop/desktop) ?

Sandisk Cruzer Micro 2.0 problem

Should show up in "My Computer" as a removable drive with letter designator. Then it is simply a matter of drag and drop to copy files using the mouse. If XP doesn't recognize the drive, put it in another USB port, and or try it on another computer. If it doesn't show up then, take it back to the store.

SanDisk Cruzer 4Gb not found on XP

I have the same issue. I have found a temporary solution though. I have a Sandisk 4GB Cruzer and an HP Laserjet 1022N connected VIA USB. When I uninstall the USB Printing support driver from Device Manager then plug in the Cruzer it recognizes it right away. Not quite sure why this would happen though
