Try opening the 'computer' icon - normally shows as an icon on your desktop or in start menu then you will hopefully see the flash drive listed along with C Drive, CD Drive etc. Double click or right click and open - this should let you see and open individual files on the flash.

The usb ports on my acer 5250-0650 do not work when a memory stick is installed.


Have the ports ever worked? Have you opened the computer icon to see if the flash drive is being detected- but maybe not auto-starting? Also, if a drive is inserted (Windows system), you ought to see the "safely remove hardware" icon appear on your taskbar, near the clock. Clicking on the icon ought to show you the drive by name & drive letter.

Lastly, right-click Computer>properties>device manager>expand disk drives>if your flash drive is shown here, highlight it & uninstall the device. Remove the flash drive, then reinsert it. Windows will reinstall the driver & this may allow it to recognize the drive again.

Let me know?

Cheers

How to show usb download stick on tv


You might actually repost this in televisions and not laptops. With that said, most televisions that will support displaying digitial images stored on a flash drive, will pop up with options on the screen when the flash drive is plugged into the USB port.

Can't find USB ports


If you have another flash drive or something else like a mouse that plug in USB try that. If these work then the flash drive you are trying to use has gone bad. If they don't then the computer has an issue.
or
Take the flash drive you are trying to use and plug it in to another computer. If it reads on that computer then your laptop has an issue. If not its the flash drive.

Hi, i have a problem with my cruzer flash,it was working fine,until last week, it's lighting up,but it isn't showing on the pc


Files on a flash drive canbe corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon andthen click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flashdrive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive you need to format the flash drive, but you willlose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: -

Have you tried to shut down your computer and re-start it up again ? (to see if your USB port starts to works again ?)
One thing you should (must) do before you remove / detach a USB device (e.g. flash drive, camera, etc.) from the USB port is to make sure you properly "dismount" (eject/disconnect) the device first (e.g. use its Property menu option) before you physically remove the device (i.e. take it out - remove it from the USB port). If this is not done, you'll get the problems you're experiencing.

How to solve usb not reconized error in sony vgn-s36gp?


Hello

Disconnect the flash drive from your computer, then plug it into a different USB port. On occasion some USB ports do not detect inserted equipment (either because the port is damaged or because the flash drive is not supported by the particular connection).

Connect the flash drive after the computer has powered on. If you plug the drive into the computer before starting the system, the computer may not detect the USB device.

Open an Internet browser and navigate to the drive manufacturer's website. Although most USB flash drives are plug-n-play, the computer may not have the appropriate drivers installed, which means you must install the driver before the system can use the flash drive.

Select the "Support" option, then choose "Drivers and Downloads". Click on the model of flash drive you are using, then the operating system. Click on the driver download link and wait for the driver to download to the computer. Double-click the downloaded file to load the installation wizard. Accept the license agreement, then follow the prompts to install the driver. Restart the computer and the system is ready to use the USB flash drive.

After reading the description, I think you need to try updating BIOS and latest device drivers for USB. Because USB are getting power on that means there would not be any fault to from the motherboard.

So please try updating latest BIOS for your notebook.
If you can provide me the product no for your notebook and the operating system which you are using currently then I can find the one for you.

Otherwise you can also do the same.

Type in the product no. on www.hp.com. Then go to software and driver download page, select the proper OS and search in BIOS ROM pack available for your notebook.

I hope this will help.

How do i put the info from restore disc onto flash drive


Before you start you will need the following:
1. Download & Run WinSetupFrom USB-0.1.1.
winsetupfromusb-install-program.png





















2. Complete the setup. The program will start automatically once you have finished.
winsetupfromusb.png



























3. Plug your pen drive into the computer and backup anything important from it as we are going to format it.
4. In the WinSetupFromUSB-0.1.1 window: click Refresh next the USB selection box. The USB pen you have just plugged in should now be visible in the drop down menu. Select it.
refresh.png



























5. Insert your XP CD or mount an XP CD Image.
6. In the WinSetupFromUSB-0.1.1 window: click Browse, next to the Windows 2000/XP/2003 Source box, and navigate to the location of the XP Install CD.
browse.png



























7. Now click the PE2USB button.
petousb.png






















8. Now Tick the Enable Disk Format box under Format Options and Tick Quick Format and Enable LBA (FAT16X). Also make sure that Enable File Copy is not ticked.
correctsetup.png






















9. Click Start. Click Yes when the pop up asks if you wish to continue. Click Yes again when the pop up asks you if you are sure you wish to continue. When you get the Completed successfully message click OK and close PEtoUSB.
10. In the WinSetupFromUSB-0.1.1 window: Click GO. The Program will now create a bootable windows XP install on your USB pen drive.
11. Click agree to the “SYSINTERNALS SOFTWARE LICENSE TERMS” pop up.
12. Click OK to the “This is Important” pop up.
13. The creation process is now complete: Take the newly formatted USB Pen and place it in the USB port of the target computer and turn it on.
NOTE: You must now read carefully what pops up on the screen as it will provide you with the hot-key (keyboard shortcut key) that, when pressed, triggers access to the BIOS. It is usually something like F1, F2, Delete or Escape.
14. Navigate the BIOS with the keyboard and find the section that contains your boot devices. With your USB drive plugged in, the USB drive should be listed. If it isn’t, your system might not support booting from USB.
15. Assuming that it is supported (as is the case with virtually all modern hardware), promote your USB drive to the primary boot device.
16. Exit from the BIOS configuration, saving all changes.
17. The computer will now reboot. Assuming that you have successfully compiled the bootable USB XP install and that you have successfully selected the USB device to be booted first in the bios a screen should appear which reads Windows 2000/XP/2003 Setup – First and Second Parts . Press Enter. You will now be presented with 2 options. Select Option 1 (first part) for the first stage of the installation process.
18. When the first stage setup completes and system reboots select Windows 2000/XP/2003 Setup – First and Second Parts, then Option 2 (second part) for the second stage of the setup.
DO NOT REMOVE THE USB PEN FROM USB PORT UNTIL YOU SEE THE WINDOWS START MENU
