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.

In order to resolve this problem:

First, please make sure that your USB Flash Drive is connected to the PC and please disconnect the net connection. (if any)
Now click on "Start" -> "Run". In the small window that was opened type "diskmgmt.msc" (without quotes).

This will open up Disk Management window which should show your Had Drive, CD-ROM(s) and the USB Flash Drive. You should be able to right click the USB Drive letter (I think that you said it was appearing as "H") and create a partition on it. Once there is a partition, you can format it back to the FAT file system.

I hope that helps. Plz vote for me. Thanks

I replaced a 250 RAM slot with a 1GB RAM slot. There is no difference in speed. Ran a Norton system check and it is still recognizing the 250 mb RAM instead of the 1GB RAM.


try resetting the computer, if that doesn't work it could be that your computer only recognizes 250mb or your BIOS needs to be configured.

Just plug the flash drive in and let your computer recognize it and offer to open the flash drive file up to view. Once it is loaded up then you can simply drag and drop into it. If this is the first time using the flash drive it may need to load some software. When a flash drive is being used a small icon should appear on the lower right.

Verbatim 1GB flash drive data recovery


Sounds like you broke something ;)

If your computer does not recognize anything when you plug it into the computer, your problem is most likely a broken contact inside the usb drive.

You should attempt to open the drive, and see if one of the four contacts on the inside of hte usb key are no longer making their way to the circuit board, and try to reconnect it.

IF you can push the connectors down with your fingers and make contact temporarily, and the computer recognizes it, try to just hold it there while you copy all your data off. Then throw away the flash drive.
