My Memorex USB flash drive is write protected


t seems that your flash drive has some bad sectors since normally that's the error message you get when that happens, try to format your drive under disk management.
Note: your files will be erased if you format your flash drive.
If formatting your flash drive does not solve your problem I will advise you to contact Memorex technical support for better assistance, you can contact them at 1-877-363-6673

If you are good wih a fine tipped soldering oron or know a person who is then there is a slim chance you can repair it.

But be prepared for the worst.

Travel Drive Broke


It depends on your skill level as to if it can be fixed or not. The data is most likely still safely stored on the flash chip inside the drive casing. However, the USB connector has been just ripped off. If you have any experience soldering it would be as simple as getting a replacement usb plug from an electronics store or cutting a cable you have and then soldering the USB connector back to the flash drive inside the casing. This is something than can be done at home or possible by a repair shop that does any type of soldering work(tv, radios, ect) Most computer repair shops will look at you silly if you ask them to solder a thumb drive back to life. I would not expect more than to be able to mount your drive and copy the data. Odds are after you cut it out of the casing it will never go back in correctly.

Good Luck

My computer is running on Windows XP. When I plug in a Sandisk minicruzer 4 gig flash drive, it zaps the computer and makes it reboot. How can I stop this? Thanks.


First make sure that you have all your updates including Service Pack 2 then try installing the drive. Have you tried to use this flash drive on another computer to make sure it works?

Snapped off Flash Drive


Ok, What you need todo, IF the internal circuitboard of the usb memory is still intact, you will need to solder the 4 usb connector pins onto the usb circuitboard of the usb memory.

This is not your device but you should get the idea, you need to solder those 4 connectors back into place, I marked them with red boxes, if the circuitboard is cracked or otherwise damaged, it may be best to give up. Or take it to a electronics repair man, but if the circuitboard is cracked and there are no good connection points the repair will be very difficult but not impossible.

you need to take the plastic cover off from the usb memory and inspect how the board is, you could even send me a picture here by using the attach picture button.

The USB connector broke!


I did the same to the cruzer as tedthehobit, and here's how I fixed it.
1) Split open enclosure with screwdriver alone edge. The small key-ring will come off when enclosure is separated. (Safety glasses, please). Circuit board is attached to plastic base--the piece for sliding the connector.
2) To see amount of damage and trace connection, remove the plastic as follows. Two notches are on each size at socket end. The other end has plastic bar across on-top. Use needle-nose piler to chew away top of notches, slowly and carefully to avoid stressing board and damaging surface. This makes it easier to move the notches to the side to lift the board up and out.
3) Look at pads where socket was attached. Fairly clean break, surrounding circuit trace and pads are intact. So, it is worth to continue.
4) The socket connection side has no large pads to solder wiring. The D+ and D- traces were lifted off slightly, but too thin to attach wire. Look at the other side.
5) Use flashlight as backlight, and follow traces from connector pads to ends of closest chips where it is big enough for soldering. [I have jpg of connection points--where to post it?]
6) Use wire-warp (hair-thin and pre-stripped) wire and small-tipped solder iron and work under bright light. Tin wire with traces of solder and remove excesses solder from iron tip. Connect wire to chip, melting and using the solder already there.
7) Solder other ends of wire to the correct tabs of the usb socket.
8) Plug usb socket into a socket extender to plug into PC. Extender is optional, but it will help to deteach from PC later.
9) Did not work the first time because 5V-line solder at circuit was not good (eventually came off). Re-solder. Plug back into PC, and cruze lit up and PC can access the file.
