Transcend pen drive problem

On one of our laptops we are trying to connect a Transcend 2gb Pen drive. The laptop runs Windows Vista Business. Its asking for the driver but as per Transcend no driver is required for Vista. Same pen drive works on other PCs which have Vista installed. Please suggest a solution.

Since you are using Vista, you may want to check for an update/patch from the laptop manufacturer. This is a common issue with Vista's USB ports. Microsoft has acknowledge the issues and has posted a fix here and here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Plug in the drive.
  • Right click on Computer, Properties
  • Select Manage
  • Select Disk Management
  • After the drive "disappears" if it is no longer visible in disk managment, I'd say it is a bad drive. If it shows as offline, try deleting any partitions on it and formatting it in disk managment.

My Kingston USB 2GB can't work in my desktop pc .

There are two most common causes of Pen Drive not working
1) The usb port You are connecting it has not enough power output to operate the pendrive (many older computers and laptops have this issue) solution buy an powered USB HUB one with a power adapter You put in a wall socket and then connect Your Pen Drive thruu this hub
2) Operating system lacks drivers for Your particular Pen (windows up to Millenium lack proper usb support and newer I mean XP Vista? (Not sure bout this last one) need administrative privileges to recognise some Pen Drive for the first time or even a driver diskette (some very rare cases).
