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.

Hi, if you want to download to the flashdrive, or external memory device you are able to "Browse" the location you would like to usually before downloading, like something from the internet. If you are trying to save pictures from your computer onto your USB flashdrive you can right click your picture, select copy then goto your start menu and select & open your USB drive, then right click and paste into the window or a folder that you have created. To create a folder on your USB, just right click into a blank space in your USB window when opened, and select NEW, then Folder =) Hope that helped
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 =)
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.
