Are you selecting the correct drive? Usually the message comes from a multi memory card reader with no memory card inserted. Do you have one of those? This drive should say "removable disk". You may need to force a new drive letter for the memory stick.

Go the disk management program in windows. It will tell you moreabout the status of the drive What windows are you running -XP? Then, with the stick inserted, right Click "My Computer" and choose manage. Then disk management and find the USB drive and see what is says. You can force a new drive letter here as well.

Plug the flash drive into the windows PC first and open "Computer". Find the drive and format it to Fat32 or NTFS. Now plug it into the mac and copy the pictures too it. Now your Windows computer should see the files. Mac will default to making the flash drive use HFS+ filesystem. Windows doesn't recognize this format at all. Mac will see fat32 and ntfs just fine though.

My noteoook got the problem with port usb


Since you have these many problems with your laptop, Firstly try to reformat the system and reinstall all the neccessary drivers. Many times reformatting works well as your OS might malfunction when you have virus or malwares in your laptop.

OTHER SOLUTIONS
a. for USB:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type Devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. The Device Manager window opens.
  2. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.
  3. Right-click a USB Root Hub in the list, and then click Properties. The USB Root Hub Properties dialog box is displayed.
  4. Click the Power Management tab.
  5. Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click OK.
  6. Repeat steps 3 through 6 for each USB Root Hub in the list.
  7. On the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes.

    Windows XP recognizes the new device.
  8. Close the Device Manager window.
b. SD CARD
Your 1GB kingston card might have virus. use a card reader and reformat the card for future use.

c. Uninstall and reinstall the driver of your finger scanner.


Hope this helps,

Problem


Hello!
Hopefully I can try to walk you through a process that I would use.  First check to see if the flashdrive is damaged.  Usually the cases don't break, but the USB connector itself takes a lot of hits/damage/wear.  You should be able to see 4 metallic contacts on the USB connector and they should be in good shape.  Blow out any dirt/garbage in the connector as well.
Next is to see when you plug it in if the LED on it lights up at all.  If there is no light whatsoever, it is one of two things, either the flashdrive is totally broken or you have a failled USB port.  Either one is possible.  If possible, take the flashdrive and test it on another system, or at least another USB port.  That will give you some important information.
Assuming that the LED lights, then it is a question of getting Windows to recognize the drive.  If there is nothing important on the drive, fdisk the drive in DOS, then format it, and then Windows should recognize it, allowing it to be used.
If you have no LED lighting on the flashdrive, after testing on another system as well, get another flashdrive (or return this one if under warranty), since there are no real parts to service/fix.
Hope this helps out!

My U3 Smart SanDisk Cruzer Micro 2.0GB USB Drive Not Recognized


We can fix it -- and recover the data (provided it is recoverable -- which it generally is). If we don't get your data back, we ship the drive back to you and you pay nothing. We've been recovering data for over 16 years and are successful about 85% of the time.
