Step one is try it on another computer. This will seperate it the drive or the USB port (hardware or software actully in both cases are possible.
Step two, if it works elsewhere, is to check under device manager, and reinstall the driver (if not embedded in the drive which most are)....both USB and the disk.
Step three is to download (again assuming it did not work) the disk diagnostics from Memorex (most drive manufacturers have a host of utilities and they may exist even for flash drives - they use them internal to their mfg operations as well). Check to see if it's good. It is possible that it just lost the embedded driver by the way in which case you need to put it back on the drive...haven't done that but assume it's possible and available.

Can give you more "stuff" to do but this will probably solve the problem....and I am guessing it died. If it did they are not expensive...and even cheaper if you really don't need 4 gb...few people do for personal and even work data.
Check at (not a seller) for pricing. This site is used by GEEKS United for finding "stuff".

This gives you some options.....Tango

I cannot get my Memorex 64GB USB flash drive to open on my computer. I have windows 7 and when looking at my control panel and under drive status, it says this device cannot start (code 10). What do I...

Trouble shooting steps I would probably take:

1) Power cycle the computer (unplugged), and try it again, when it is COMPLETELY booted.

2) unplug it and plug it into a different port(s).

4) Try it on a different computer (both PC and MAC, as it could be a formatting issue) (if it doesn't work, entertain the reality that I may have lost everything and may have to format the drive and/or buy a new one)

My memorex usb 2.0 4gb traveldrive is reading as full when there is nothing on it. how do I clean it up or reformat it so i can use it again?

You can reformat it by opening up My Computer, right-clicking on the drive, and clicking format. I recommend formatting your drive as NTFS as it will give you an option.

I have a Memorex Ultra Drive connected via USB to a Windows XP machine. It shows up in My Computer as a folder but then disappears again. It does this repeatedly. The drive is formated as a FAT32. How...


As you have described that your Memorex Ultra Traveldrive re-appears repeatedly, indicates that the communication between your computer and your external hard drive is intermittent. The FAT32 format does not produce these types of issues. What we can do first is identify what causes the problem.

Assuming that the hard drive in your Memorex Ultra Traveldrive is in good shape:

Troubleshooting Method #1. Try connecting your Memorex Ultra Traveldrive into another USB port. If the problem persists, use another USB cable for your external hard drive. If the problem still persists, you will have to replace the external casing of your external hard drive. If your external hard drive works with the other USB port perfectly, most likely, the USB port where you originally plug into of your Windows XP machine needs to be checked. That USB port might need some repairing.

Troubleshooting Method #2. Try connecting the external hard drive into another computer and perform the same troubleshooting as Method #1. If your external hard drive works with other computers perfectly, most likely, the USB port where you originally plug into of your Windows XP machine needs to be checked. The USB port might need some repairing.

If the problem only occurs with your Windows XP machine, assuming all USB ports are in good shape, your Windows XP needs to be checked for some software issues.

I hope this works for you. Kindly reply/comment for further assistance. Good Luck!

Thanks for using Fixya!

Need software for 512mb traveldrive using Windows 7

The TravelDrive is a "plug-and-play" device, and Windows 7 supports Plug-and-Play.
So, any device-drivers are included, and will automatically be used when you connect the TravelDrive.

What problems are you having? Symptoms? Error-messages? Does the TravelDrive work in some other computer? Does any other USB device work in the USB port that you are using for the TravelDrive?
