Verbatim Flash Drive "Unkown Device"

Hi

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.

Dave

How to download on verbatim flashdrive


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

My Sandisk 4GB Cruzer wont work ... When i conect mu USB it wont flash and a bubble comes up on my computer saying unkown device please can anyone help me thank you,. And im on windows xp..


Hi!

Try plugging it to another USB port on your computer, preferrably a rare one.
Also, try plugging it to another computer.

If none of the above worked, I'm afraid the pendrive is damaged and have to be replaced.
You can take it to a special lab that specialized in data restoration in order to take the data out of it...

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Best regards and good luck,
Pelu.

Verbatim 1GB flash drive data recovery


Sounds like you broke something ;)

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.
