Often it is due to electrostatic charges on usb. Unplug all USBs.Unplug PC from power cable for 10/15/ minutes. plug back computer to power outlet and restart. Plug back usb.
If it still does not work , flash memory may be faulty, test it on a different computer.

I have sony micro vault 2 GB pen drive but win xp sp3. but i plug pen drive the message is flash ''usb Device not recognized'' so how can solve this problem. how can work my pendrive properly.


Goto my computer and right click, left click on properties and find device manager.
Scroll down until you find universal serial bus controllers click on the + sign, right click on 'Enhanced Host Controller', right click and choose update driver, use the internet option to download updated driver, this should hopefully resolve your USB problem.
If it does not update and the usb drivers and they seem fine, then the problem could be with the flash drive, try the drive in another computer to check that it is working.

How to use Micro USB flash drive?


OK. Just put the flash drive in one of your USB ports (rectangular slot). The system should recognize your drive and auto-install the driver. If not and the USB ports are OK, download the driver for your Micro USB flash drive. If you are not certain about the driver, let me know which specific (brand and model) USB drive you have. Also, let me know if the USB is/isn't recognized. Hope this helps.

When I connect my Pen drive to my laptop it asks for driver.


you turn the usb ports on thru the bios setup menu that you can enter as you boot up... actually tho you shouldn't have to do anything.... just plug in the usb device and your operating system should detect it for you.

Is there a driver to allow sony micro vault 2.0gb on win 98?


Specs say it is compatible with Windows 98 SE. Also says no drivers are needed for it. Make sure your plug 'n play is enabled on your computer. Once it is enabled just plug the drive in & Win 98SE should install it. If it does not work then try a different usb port as maybe a port is bad. Hope this helps.

Unrecognised external drive


Hello Sir,

Here are a few things to try. If you have access to a secondary PC or laptop, try connecting your drive to it using a different USB cable. Also try unplugging your drive from the power outlet for a few seconds and then connecting it again. If it?s still not being recognized, Maxtor has a free utility called PowerMax (available at www.maxtor.com) that lets you run various tests on your drive till it identifies the problem.
Plus another thing to look at is if whether or not plug and play is disabled in the system Bio's. Course the easiest way to see if that is the case is to plug something else like a pen drive into the USB port and see if it is even working. It may also be that the USB port is not working or is disabled, or better yet your system has only a USB 1.0 port. In which the pen drive may work but it is not enough for the Ext. Hard Drive which requires USB 2.0.
But the remedy is to first try the drivers and software, then check to see in your hardware manager what USB you have, then if plug and play is enabled in the BIO's as well as what the USB setting is in the Bio's, and last but not least add a USB 2.0 PCI expansion card and try that.

Plz forget to comment....
Good luck!

Cherrs!!!!
