Flash Drive Problem

If anyone can offer help on this, I'd be most appreciative.

I am running XP on a Sony VAIO. I have a SimpleTech 512 mb flash drive which has worked well in the past. However, all of a sudden, yesterday when I inserted the flash drive, the PC confirmed the drive was present (E:\), but explorer could not find any files on the drive.

Of relevance in terms of troubleshooting:

1. My other flash drives work OK with this notebook
2. The SimpleTech flash drive works well in all other computers
3. I uninstalled the driver, then put the drive back in the usb port, and it claimed it recognized the drive and ended up with the "ready for use" message...but it still does not show any files being present.

If anyone has any further troubleshooting ideas, I thank them in advance!

    I think the problem has to be something within the PC settings, since the drive works fine on other PC's. Thank you for the idea, though.

I have no user guide for my sandisk cruzer micro 512 mb and want to restore some of its files to my pc. How do I do this?

If the files are still on the flash drive you can simply plug it into your computer and move the files off. if the files are no longer on the flash drive then you are out of luck because they are gone forever. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

Hi, i have a problem in my flash.when i sent data in the flash and then open in another computer then the data not fun and ask for repair when i repair the repairing is not movies alwayes...

when you remove the flash drive you need to do an eject and wait until the system tells you that it is safe to remove it. Pulling the flash drive off the usb port without doing this can cause data corruption thus the errors you are encountering.
One solution is to empty all of the contents of your flash drive into a hard drive, format the flash drive, and then check its size. You should be able to use it normally.
Hopefully you did not get a "fake" Kingston 4GB flash drive that were being sold on Ebay for really low prices.
Good luck.

Simple Tech HD failing- takes 4 hours to tranfer 512 MB!?

Not exactly a solution but I have had the same problem with one of these Simple Tech Signature Mini 320's for a while. Real finicky. Will only be recognized on direct connected to MB USB ports and even then with Win 7 or XP I get the "This USB device can perform faster if you connect it to a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port." no matter what ports I connect it to. While having this issue on this "main" computer I have previously connected it to some other computer (don't remember which, now) and it connected at 2.0 speed. What's going on??

SimpleTech 320GB External Hard Drive software.


First of all make sure that the USB port that you are using to connect it to your PC is a USB 2.0 port, and not USB 1.0.

Also if it came with an external power, connect it to the external power before putting on your PC.

This is because the voltage supplied by USB 1.0 is lower than that of USB 2.0 and therefore might not be enough to power up your USB Drive.

The link to the driver that you requested is this:

if it still doesnt work after doing all these, power up your system, and plug the external drive, then Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.

On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your flash drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.

This should make your Flash Drive to be detected automatically.

Try to keep me posted about the problem.

Hope this helps you out.

1 TB Rock Mobile External Harddrive capacity

No. It is not that way. how it is read is as under: 1 K is 1024 bytes 1 MB is 1024 K bytes 1 GB is 1024 MB 1 TB is 1024 GB. As per books. BUT, when it comes to selling HDDs 1 TB is 1000,000,000,000 bytes. the extra 24 bytes at each lelvel have been overlooked. Thats where you loose so much of disk space.

I have a problem with my 512 mb PQI fash drive

Hi. How do you open a flash drive anyway? Cause me... I'll just right click the drive then click the "Explore" menu and thats the way to avoid virus menu like the Autoplay(once you double-click the drive, it wont open 'cause it has an extra Autoplay menu}. By the way, does your PC virus-free?Try to check the drive by right-clicking the drive. If you see two Autoplay menus and the other Autoplay is highlighted or the font is thick, your PC surely has a virus. You must remove it first.
Or try to go to do this:
Contol Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Disk Management and look for the drive. Right-click it and click the Open or Explore menu.
I hope I help you with this kind of suggestion.
