My computer does not recognize my flash drive

1g generic flash drive

    Hi,



    I purchased a Verbatim #96579, 4Gb Store 'n' Go USB Drive on 9/13/08. This product is not recognized nor does it load on my personal Acer Aspire 3610 laptop running WinXP(Home), with service pack 3, Zonealarm, AdAware, Spybot, Spywareblaster, etc., and a 40Gb harddrive with 1GHz RAM. I am the Administrator of this laptop. Harddrive partitions on my laptop include 2 NTFS and 1 FAT32 formatted drives.

    Have downloaded the software (V-Safe.exe, etc.) from the Verbatim website but it wouldn't install the software. Error message when trying to install was 'Please insert Store 'n' Go and run as a privileged user. The USB drive is still not being recognized by my laptop as Device Manager states that the driver is no installed. Have tried to search/install via the internet for a driver for the USB drive but it appears that none are available. The drive is supposedly compatible with Win XP & Vista systems and is formatted as an FAT32 drive. Other flash drives (ie. Kingston 2Gb drive, etc.) are recognized automatically by my laptop w/no problems. Appreciate your assistance in resolving this matter as the Verbatim support center are not responding to my requests for help. If you need further information, please advise.


    P.S. This problem USB drive from Verbatim works on my desktop and a Dell laptop (both running WinXp)

Hi

Try Formating the flash Drive

If your Laptop has Windows 98, you have to load/install Drivers from the CD shipped with the Flash Drive

How to swap hardware driver of wd hd


You don't have to swap drivers in windows it just a generic driver for all hard drives unless your using AHCI but that's generic too if your already using it. Just shut the machine down, don't get any static sparks from you fingers on anything, touch the metal PC tower firmly first, swap the drive, restart the computer and install windows. If the drive is in already and it's for a second drive and your PC isn't recognizing it it meamns your PC is to old and you need the Western Digital Acronis free version and you'll have to keep it installed on your computer for the life of the drive, it has a Tool or Utility called extended capacity manager that will recognize your drive properly. I can't see a SATA 2 drive being used in anything old enough to need software to recognize 500gigs. You wouldn't be able to use SATA.

SD card not recognized



What happens when you tried to plug-in SD card to the computer?


Have you made any recent changes to the computer prior to the issue?


To make the SDHC be recognized by the computer, we need to ensure that the card reader works in Windows 7 first. Please check if the card reader is recognized properly by the computer and you have installed the driver for it.


Meanwhile, you can plug some other storage cards to the card reader and see how it works.


I would suggest you to refer the link below
A Secure Digital (SD) card may not be recognized on a Windows 7 based computer.

Uninstall all the Generic USB drivers and reinstall.


1. Open Device Manager.

2. In "Disk Drives" dropdown, uninstall the "Generic SD/MMC USB device" drive.

3. Restart computer.

4. Insert SDHC card.




Hope this helps.

Windows asking me to format my flash drive


Just format your flash drive! Before you start formatting your flash drive, transfer all data from your flash drive 'cause when you format your flash drive, it will erase all the data. After you have formatted the flash drive, then you can transfer back the data to your flash drive.
