Depends what is wrong. If the drive itself is not going it may be finished. Did you try to reformat it.
If it does not show up when you plug it in, then it depends what windows you are using. Some windows need a driver to make the USB drive work. That can be got from the manufacturers web site.

My XP does not appear when connected through the USB port. When connecting it beeps. The USB controllers and hubs are all reporting they are working properly from the Deviece Manager. My printer works...


shouldn't need a driver if you got windows xp or higher. it should automatically install as a USB storage device.
is this new? if so you will need to format the hard drive if its not formatted already.
you can also check manager and go to storage device and see if the volume is getting a proper device letter.
do this by right clicking on my computer and choose manage. go to storage device and look for the hard drive. right click on it assign drive letter.

Seems like the usb drive is not working properly. Try to run a repair system, to see if that fixes any issues with the drivers of the usb ports.

The drive is not registered with my machine after I connect it.


u dont have any specific drivers that came with the Targus dvd?
..mabe the generic driver is not exepted!
..or ur usb port is not configured properly!
...do u have usb 2.0!
...did u tried on other ports!
...try to force usb 1.1!
...last step: in bios, try to putt usb dvd , or usb , (or anything similar), to boot from, (make sure u have a proper disk inside the dvd.)
if it worked (and its not simple, u need to make many tries) , then its driver problem, and in xp pro, every thing can be fixed ;)
gd luck

My flash drive wont do anything when i plug it to my computer.


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click Of Death"

If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.
