My sandisk 8 gm is not open , when i try to open it as me that the disc drive is not formatted, do you want to formatte it now ?. what i will do. please help me becouse it inculded important office file...

The reason for which you are not able to open the pen drive is that Pen drive was formatted on a different computer with a different file system from a different OS and then the file was copied into it. And the computer on which you are trying to open the pen drive is having probably different OS which does not support that file system Pen drive was formatted with.

So all you have to do is to open the Pen drive on a computer that has OS same as on which file was copied into.

4 GB sandisk pendrive can't open

1. continue without solving
2. If you didn't remove the drive with the safe removal tool in the task bar ( lower right hand corner) the drive will lose it's ability to be mounted or seen by Windows and will not format. You will lose data.

My pendrive's copying speed is very slow. its capacty is 8 GB. whn i connect pen drive to the PC its get lots time rather then normal time. and when i copying some data its gets slow.

format the pen drive after taking the backup and then defragmented it you will get smooth work in your pen drive. If not so fast after defragmentation then check your computer configuration and its space may be it is due to your computer is slow you con check whether your pen drive is ok or not by connecting it to any other good pc. good luck

Pendrive is not working

ic, maybe the usb port of your friend's pc is defective which may cause your pen drive to malfunction, probably a shorted usb port. or just maybe your pendrive was dropped by your friend which damage the drive, it happened to me too before.
