Go into the bios during rebooting stage and check whether you have automatic detection of drives. If set to disabled or manual change to automatic. You may have a problem with the motherboard interface to hard-drive.

How to reformat a flash drive


Hi jabbbbbb6,
The Cruzer Micro is a flash storage device that connects to your computer's USB port. It comes in various sizes and fits on a keychain. If you want to erase the drive, you can perform a reformat from within Windows' Disk Management utility. After you reformat the drive, you do not need to reinstall any drivers because Windows automatically detects the device.


To Reformat, please follow the instructions:
1. Insert the Cruzer Micro to an available USB port on your computer. Right-click "Computer" and select "Manage." Click "Disk Management" under "Storage" on the left pane of the window.
2. Right-click your USB drive on the list of drives and select "Format." Select a name and file system type for your drive.
3. Click "OK" to reformat the drive. Click "Start" and "Computer" to access your drive.

Rate this accordingly.

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using Fixya.

My laptop does not boot. it always ask for a cd to boot but i already reformat it.someone told me that it is a hard disk problem and advice me to replace my hard drive.


When the computer starts it flashes up press f2or delete or some other key to enter setup. Go through the settings and there should be one that will allow you to change the boot device. It sounds to me like it is set to boot from the cd rom drive only. Change it to boot from the hard drive and save changes to CMOS and restart the computer. The computer should now boot from the hard drive.

Data traveler not recognize my computer


If you are using a USB Hub, try removing it and plug the drive directly into the USB port on the computer. I have a Dell laptop running Win 2k and sometimes have the same problem.

HDD unable to detect at My Computer


Well first I would pull the hard drive out of the case. I would then get a USB to IDE/SATA drive cable. I would connect the drive not being able to be detected to another computer via USB.

If it works the drive is still good but the data might be corrupt. If the data is corrupt I would be sure to get any stuff you can off of it and basically reformat and reload.

Possible Corrupted Hard Drive


is it a lappy or desktop? if its a desktop, you can make your drive a slave in order to recover those files that you want. same goes if its a lappy. however, it would give you a hard time becasue you have to take out the HD fro the lappy unlike the Desktop cpu.

seems like your froze to a point it cant pass over the startup windows loading. it may be that some window files were tampered by an illegal operation by some of your programs.

reformat will do the trick. recover your files by using another cpu of a friend and after that, reformat that drive.
