Looking at an old Verbatim flash USB drive (SN 200411025626) I think that it is 256MB, to see if I can get the data of the drive. It is coming up within Windows XP as Unknown device. I have tried everything that I can think of to get this drive working. Do you have anything that I could try please? Is there a driver that I can download from Verbatim to force the drive to be recognized under XP or is the drive just toast?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give, my friend has now learnt a valuable lesson in multiple backups.

It seems that the issue is related with the flash drive itself, I have came across with such problems many times. I guess now it's time you should go and ask for a replacement.Most of the flash drives comes with 5 years warranty. You may want to call verbatim customer support for warranty.

copy and paste the files you want to the other device. the START menu will contain My Computer and you will be able to see your USB Flash drive..Open your flash drive, then locate the files you want to 'download' or usually its called 'Copy' by right click the picture and selecting copy, then go back to your USB Flash drive window, right click and select paste... Hope that helps you =)
My Verbatim Sto N Go 8GB USB Flash Drive does not work in any port, in any computer. When I plug it in, the "Device is not recognized" error comes up. When I click on it, and the Unknown Device Properties comes up, the device status reads: "Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)
To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer."
The driver details read: Provider: Advanced Micro Devices File Version: 220.127.116.11 built by: WinDDK Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility
This is the 2nd drive of this same brand that quit working within 6 months. I have MONTHS of work on files in this drive, and would hate to have to redo all that work! I was real careful after the first one went bad to use the eject button when removing it from my computer. But I am thinking the last time I clicked the eject button, it froze, so I just pulled it out without the message coming up. Hopefully there is someway to get the computer to recognize this drive again???
Right click on the drive in your computer, go to properties. Unchecked hidden files then click ok. or open the drive for USB click on view on the toolbar, click options or folder options, check show hidden files. then delete the temp files.
Hope this helps, pls dont forget to rate solution.
