My flash dose not work with ``please insert disk error`` and it shows in disk management `` no media ` please help me to solve it

Insert it into another computer, if it does show up, look for USB issues on the first computer, try unplugging any USB not nessessary, restart, try again.
If you cant see it on another computer chances are the USB drive went bad. Unfortunately they do go bad. Even reformatting it may only delay another crash of the USB Drive.

How to unlock partition on flash drive

USB flash drives are small, convenient storage drives. Place data such as pictures, photos and text on them quickly and efficiently and then carry it to another computer for copying to its hard drive.

A USB flash drive that has security enabled in it must be 'unlocked" before it can be used, which becomes difficult if the password has been lost. Because the security on the USB flash drive is rudimentary, a number of methods, from built-in software to optional programs, can remove the security so that the drive can be used.

Plug the USB connector of the USB flash drive into a USB port on the PC. Right-click on the icon of the USB flash drive when it appears on the desktop of a Windows-based computer. Select "Format" from the pop-up menu. Follow the command prompts in the window that appears to format the USB flash drive. Click "Done" in the confirmation window when it appears. The USB flash drive can now be used because the security has been removed from its storage space. Plug the USB connector of the USB flash drive into a USB port on the Mac. Double-click on the Mac's Disk Utility program, which comes free with the OS X operating system and is in the "Utilities" folder on the hard drive. Select the icon of the USB flash drive in the left column of the Disk Utility program's main screen. Select the "Erase" tab at the top of the Disk Utility program's main screen. Click on the "Format" check box on the right side of the Disk Utility program's main screen. Select "Fat (32)" from the drop down menu below the "Format" check box. Click "Format" at the bottom of the Disk Utility program's main screen. Click "Format", again, in the confirmation box that appears. Quit the Disk Utility program when the formatting is done. The USB flash drive can now be used because the security has been removed from its storage space. Download a password protection program to the computer's desktop; for example, the free TrueCrypt password protection program (see the link Below). Double-click on the icon of the password protection program when it has fully downloaded. Follow the command prompts to install the program onto the computer's hard drive. Restart the PC after the installation has been completed. Double-click on the password protection program to launch it. Wait for the password protection program to recognize the USB flash drive and display disc letters for the drives attached to the computer in the left column of its main program screen. Plug the USB connector of the USB flash drive into a USB port on the computer. Wait for a letter to appear in the left column of the password protection program's main screen. Use the mouse to click once on this letter which represents the USB flash drive. Click on the "Volume" or "Volume Tools" button to open a new window. Click on the "Next" button in the new window. Erase the password in the "Password" column of the new window that appears. Erase the password in the "Confirm password" column. Click on the "Next" button to go to a new screen. Select "Traveler Disk Setup" from the drop down menu below "Tools" at the top of the password protection screen. Click on the "Open Explorer window for mounted volume" check box in the new window that appears. Click the "Create" button at the bottom of the window. Click the "OK" button on the confirmation window when it appears. Quit the password protection program. Drag the icon of the USB flash drive to the Trash or right-click on it and select "Eject" from the pop-up menu. Remove the USB flash drive from the computer's USB port. Plug the connector of the USB flash drive back into the computer's USB port. Double-click on the icon of the USB flash drive when it appears on the desktop to open its window now that the security password has been removed. Plug the USB connector of the USB flash drive into a USB port on the PC. Go to "Start" and select "Run" from the pop-up menu. Enter "regedit" into the text column that appears and press the "enter" key to run the registry editor. Press the "Browse" button on the registry editor's main screen and navigate to the following path on the computer's hard drive: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies" Click "OK" to close the window. Double-click on the "WriteProtect" text that is in the right column of the registry editor's main screen. Enter "O" into the "Value Data box" in the window that appears. Click on the "OK" button to close the window. Quit the registry editor program. Restart the PC. Double-click on the icon of the USB flash drive that is on the desktop to open its window and access the files now that the security write protection has been removed.

Hope this helps.

Flash drives do not need a drivers (plug and play). There are several possibilities:

2. Assumption: normal USB ports, computer driver error, a normal flash drive
Solution: reinstall the chipset drivers, or USB.
3. Assumption: normal USB port,

The USB port is dirty, can cause short-circuit flash drive. The characteristics of short-circuit flash drive. When inserted into a USB flash drive (about 5 seconds), the temperature of the flash drive become extremely hot. If there are problems like this, immediately unplug the flash drive, to prevent permanent damage.

I hope this information helps.

How to copy a doc. file to the flash drive.

Ok. here is what you need to do.

1. Hook your flash drive to any of the usb slot in your computer.
see image below bcfce55.jpg

Wait for the system to read it. A green arrow icon will appear in the taskbar to show that a new removable hardware device is connected. After it successfully recognized, It will display a message " The device is installed and ready to use" at the lower right portion of the windows taskbar.

Click on My Computer a new drive will appear. It is usually designated as removable drive. On this drive you will paste the copied doc files. It is the assigned drive for your flash drive.

So go on., copy all the files you need to carry and paste it in the flash drive.

Be reminded also that before you unhook the flash drive from the computer, right click first on the green arrow icon on the taskbar and stop the operation. Click stop on the flash drive. This will turn off the remaining applications / readings in the flash drive and will prevent it from crashing and file corrupting.

I hope you understand.
Please give me some good ratings as this will help me too.

There are two possible reasons either your pen drive is not functioning or the auto play is disabled.

First of all check whether the Pen Drive is listed on my computer as a removable drive. If so then do the following steps:

1) right click on the properties and select "Auto play" tab.
2) On the dropdown choose mixed content.
3) Under "Actions" select "prompt me each time to choose an action" button.
4) Apply and OK

Now remove your Pendrive and reconnect.
This should solve your problem.

If your Pendrive doesnt show up on my computer there can be two reasons. either the USB port you are connecting is faulty . try a different USB port. or your pendrive is faulty which needs replacement....
