Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

How can I get the usb memory stick to work on my computer? I have been using it for awhile and leaving it in place and it lights up occassionally now, not all the time as before. The computer does not show it exists. I had to install Firefox a few days ago for correcting access to a school blackboard website to avoid changes resulting in not being able to navigate to the places needed for class. Could Firefox have blocked it from being accessible? It is a 4 GB usb memory stick by Cruzer. Thanks for your help. kv

No to the firefox question. try the stick in a different usb port to make windows "relearn" to read it. if it won't it may just be failing (going bad).

My computer (HP DV 5200TX) is not reading the memory stick duo. What steps can I try?


I didn't know that HP built computers with card slots that support MS pro duo. Try getting a mini-usb cable, leaving the card in your psp, and plug the PSP into your computer. Make sure you set the PSP to connect using the USB first, though.

Don't have a place to install the cd to download software trying to install netgear G54 wireless USB Adapter to IBM Thinkpad 2662


Find another computer with a CD-drive and a USB port.
Purchase a USB memory-stick.
Connect the memory-stick to that computer, and copy all the files from the CD onto the memory-stick.
Move the memory-stick onto your computer, and install from the files on the memory-stick.

Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
#2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
#6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    My USB Memory stick wont show on My Computer


    I'd try in different USB ports and even maybe on another computer first. If still not working, contact the manufacturer. If you truly mean 'Memory Stick', as in Sony's, you can find support options for repair or replacement. Alternately, you could attempt to go through a data recover specialist.

    I have purchased a memory stick[8GB] and I need to know how to use it


    Hello !

    If you are familiar with floppy disks (were placed in the "A" drive) from years ago, the memory stick works in the same way. Instead of saving to the "A" drive, you would save to a drive letter.

    If you have a computer that is less than 8 years old, you probably have a USB port. The USB port is rectangular in shape.

    Place the memory stick in your USB port (any USB port). The stick only goes one way. So if it does not fit, flip it over and try again. Do not force it.

    You should see a message displaying a drive letter (probably "E", "F" or "G") that has been created. Note that drive letter.

    Now, the memory stick will allow you to save your files to the "E", "F" or "G" drive. Your computer's hard drive is "C". When you save files (in a document, for example), you are saving to your "C" drive. To save to the memory stick, select "Save As" with in your software program, such as Word, and select the memory stick's drive letter. Your document will be saved to your memory stick. Note that the light will go on the memory stick as it saves your document.

    When you are finished with the memory stick, look for a symbol on your Toolbar (near the date/time). Right-click the item and select "Eject" and you'll get a message that it is safe to remove your hardware.

    Please note to never remove your memory stick when your are saving a document or other file.

    That's it !!

    Hope this helps.

    Ok what you might try is get a new hard drive and install windows on there and see what happens. Also if you are able to before you try a new hard drive you should do a system restore and restore it back to the day that windows was installed.
