My verbatim 4GB flash drive broke. The metal piece that goes into the USB port came out of the plastic casing. I removed it from the computer with tweezers. How do I fix it to retrieve all my files?

If the metal piece just came out of the plastic casing, you may try reconnecting it to the computer and see if it would be detected by the computer. If it's detected, back up all the files.

But if the metal piece broke off, sorry but there's no way to fix it.

Now, you may look for a Data Recovery Center near you. The Data Recovery Centers are computer shops or stores that offers data restoration, back up or retrieval.

Hope these helps and have a great day!

How do I get data off verbatim 160 gb hard drive that the mini usb port broke off?


Your best bet is to buy a donor drive of the same make/model, remove the circuit board and install it on your broken drive - get your data but don't try to continue to use it after that because it will
fail.

It want come up on my computer


Step 1:
Problems with Verbatim portable hard drives vary depending on your model of hard drive, your operating system and your computer hardware. Some problems can include insufficient USB power output, the file system format, and potential overheating due to enclosure materials.

File System b> Verbatim portable hard drives come formatted for use with Mac computers. If you're using it with a Windows or Linux computer, you will need to format it to a file system that your operating system will recognize; Windows computers typically work with NTFS, while modern Linux distributions use ext4. If you have computers with mutliple operating systems, FAT32 is usually considered easier for all operating systems to recognize. Verbatim does not recommend switching a portable drive between PC and Mac computers once you've formatted the drive one way or the other. Adequate Power While most computers supply adequate power with one USB port, older computers can have insufficient power output. If your computer doesn't seem to be powering the drive, use of a Y-shaped USB cable, designed to be plugged into two USB ports, can get more power to run the drive. Additionally, consider trying different USB ports on the same computer; some USB ports get more power than others. Drivers b> Make sure that you have any relevant drivers related to the hard drive that you have purchased. If your drive didn't come with a setup disc, you can check the Verbatim website for product drivers. Overheating b> Of Verbatim's seven portable hard drives, four are enclosed in plastic; of the other three, one is enclosed in aluminum, one in leather, and one in rubber. While all the drives are tested to run well with their enclosure, metal enclosures conduct heat away from the hard drive and help to prevent overheating. Plastic, on the other hand, is an insulator, so plastic enclosures may contribute to heat buildup. Check plastic-enclosed drives for overheating and avoid leaving them plugged in when not in use.

I'm not an expert with PCs, but I have a windows 98 Operating system and have been able to use all sorts of flash drives. Everytime I buy a new one, I just plug it into the USB port and in a short time it recognizes NEW HARDWARE and loads the driver. I've used LEXAR 2GB,SANDISK 4GB, VERBATIM 2GB, and recently a ATIVA 4GB

Broken flash drive


Hi,

The problem you're having is unfortunately common. There are some brands that tend to hold up better, including a mini hard drive version by IO Magic(bout $30 for 12GB) they tend to have retractable or foldaway usb plugs which makes them less suseptible to that kind of damage.

As for fixing them, it's nearly impossible to repair them permanently but I can usually get them up and running long enough to grab your files and get them to a DVD or new drive.

I just signed up here a couple days ago and am unsure of the rules about offering services but if you're interested get back to me and I'll see what I can do(repairs generally rune $50-$120, depending on type of damage)


Hope this Helps,
