My U3 smart stick is not recognised on any computer
Help all of my work is on one U3 memory stick which half way through my work last night decided to disappear as far as my computer was concerned and not be recognised. I didn't drop it. And occasionally it is recognised for a split second then it goes again.

When you connect something to an USB port for the first time, don't hope to much. You have to be sure the computer has the correct software to recognise the hardware and can work with it. From Windows 7 and up, for most hardware that is certified with Microsoft, you can download the drivers from Microsoft. Lots of hardware is recognised when connected and will initiate a download from Microsoft. But not all hardware will do so and not all hardware is compatible with the new operating systems.
So to make sure your hardware is compatible, check the manual and find out, what you have to do so it will work on your computer.
If your device was working on a USB2 port, it also should work on an USB3 port, on the same computer. But don't expect another speed, because the slowest part decides the speed.
No motion picture, movie, games, etc do have this problem, because the LCD or TFTP screen has very low refresh rate so while playing games OR watching dvd movies on a laptop will give jerky movements which as you have mentioned that the is no syncronization. The refresh rate on laptop screens are 40 60 Hz whereas in CRT Monitors we get 70 90 Hz, Sorry nothing can be done....sodeep
take the stick out, Windows_xp goto the control panel >hardware>device manager see if the device is listed, usually as a h/d uninstall it [right mouse click device, menu=uninstal] unplug the stick! REBOOT after reboot, replug stick, cpu should " see " it and should act normal
Try it in another PC to see if it is recognised. If not, there is probably not much you can do to repair it - they are so cheap!
Have a good look at the connectors to see if they have been damaged or the solder joints broken. If so, you may be able to find a friend who can repair the stick for you.
