    I don't think this problem is around plugging a usb flash drive into your xp/vista system (laptop/desktop). The problem is around plugging in a usb flash drive into a Western Digital (WD) Mybook World Edition (MBWE) Network Attached Atorage (NAS); an external NAS hard-drive which has a usb port. I have the same issue. When I plug in a usb flash drive, the MBWE drive blinks as it is recognizing the flash drive; however when trying to explore the drive through windows explorer, I can't explore the flash drive. I'm not sure but I'm thinking of trying to explore the MBWE drive with Mionet and then see if the usb flash drive attached to MBWE becomes visible that way. Goodluck for you and myself !!!

If this is a USB device and you are using Windows XP, you do not need to install a driver. The driver comes with Windows XP and the device just work when you plug it in.

    I had a similar problem with Vista preloaded on my Compaq. When Vista
    asked for a driver I chose to manually specify a location, then told it
    to look in C:\windows\system32. It asked a couple more times and each
    time told it C:\windows\system32. USB devices work great now.

How to use a SanDisk Ultra Backup USB 2.0 Flash Drive I wish to copy from my computer files all my pictures to save and take to use at other computers..Help, Thxs


connect the drive to the computer usb port. locate "my computer" in your start menu, double click it to view all drives. you should see a drive marked "Removable Drive something", double click it to open the usb drive. now leave that window open... Again, go to start menu, open "my Documents" locate and open "my pictures" now use the ctrl key in combination with your mouse to click on the folders or pictures you wish to move (keep the ctrl pressed while you select) they turn blue as you select them. Once selected use Ctrl and the C key at the same time to Copy the selection. now, go back to your removable drive window that is behind your my pictures window, click on the white area in the window and use CTRL in combination with the V key to paste your selection into your USB flash drive, now wait until its all done moving the files.... count an extra 20 seconds after its done before you remove the device to move to another computer. Please use "recommend"+ with your comments if you find this useful . cheers

My Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive ("HMNHD") used to work perfectly, until I reset my Dell Inspiron 1545 and installed Windows 7 to upgrade it from Vista. I backed up all my files, program data,...


First and the foremost thing is that when u backup any info to an external hard drive try only back up the data that u have saved. Coz application cannot be saved if done they cannot be retrived. Now if those files are asking for permissions then right click on the file - properties - then on the securities - click on add - then Under Enter the object names to seclect type in Everyone then click on Check Name now Everyone will come in Underlined - click on OK - U will come back to properties tab then on top click Everyone - And under Permissions for everyone Under Full Control Check ALLOW - Then OK
this should fix the issue.
If this does not helps, since u have transfered all the data back to the PC why not format the External Hard Drive. Connect the Drive right click on it the see it teh format option is there or not if present then foprmat it.

Laptop can't find ext harddrive


One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems 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

6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you dont do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.
7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to cheack the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.
8. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

9. 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
SPECIAL NOTES
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.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.

My Transcend JetFlash V10 16GB USB


Go to the transcend site. In the support section, click drivers/downloads. Type in your model number or search for it. Mine was a Transcend 4GB JetFlash V10 drive. So the model number was TS4GJFV10. There will be a download called Recovery Tool. Get it. Run it. That's it.
P.S: use the global download link, its faster.
