    Nope this doesn't work, but I think it maybe a faulty thing in the flash, cause sometimes I get a small shock from it(current)?

    Odd, its probably faulty, these things are very simple on the inside if you have the skils you could possibly repair it.. althought I've never tryed it myself.



    I had a similiar problem and it turned to be a loose connection on the memory somewhere.. becouse it started to work when I got pissed at it and was about to snap it to 2parts (was beding the memory like ( <- like that) well i didnt snap it to two parts yet.. instead I connected it into my pc while it was a bit twisted like ( to my suprise the damn thing worked and I was able to get the files I had put in it a year ago, it hadnt worked before that.



    althought my pc did detect the memory but it didnt recognize it



    I don't recommend that but yeah It can be a loose connection or something else. well I bought a used one for 5 euros so it might be easyer just to get a new one.

My flash dive is not work.it can't do anything


Windows XP, Vista , or Windows 7 should be able to automatically detect and install it. Try using it on another computer that has either Windows XP, Vista , or Windows 7 on it. If it doesn't automatically detect and install it on that one then the flashdrive is dead.

But if you have an older operating system then go here to download the driver:

My PC will not recognize PNY USB 2.0 4G drive. It is not in My Computer folder either.


One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems 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


6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the
USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you don’t do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.


7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to check the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.


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

9. 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


10. Ensure that you have set removable drives for "quick removal" or that you use the "Safely Remove Hardware" option often shown on the lower toolbar. It is possible that files my not be fully written to external devices before they are removed. This corrupts the file itself and even on occasion the drive.
SPECIAL NOTES
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.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.

Flash drive


Hi,
What operating system are you running ??
If it,s windows 98 you,ll have problems, as they don,t like mass staorage devices, even with the drivers installed.
the other alternative, is to try on another PC And format it to FAT/FAT32 Or NTFS ( if your using XP )
