Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive
Hi, I have a Lexar USB flash drive that is no longer functional. I plugged it in the USB ports of several desktop computers and laptops, but none of the computers/laptops could detect this flash drive (would not show up as a device under "My Computer"). What can I do to retrieve the data on this flash drive?
Nhat Nguyen I have the same problem. The drive doesn't show up in Windows Explorer or Device Manager (Windows XP). I've tried it in a Windows 98 SE2 computer, which correctly identified the drive, but failed when it tried to install the driver (seems to me that this shows that some data is still accessible on the drive). The LED does illuminate, so it's not merely an electrical contact problem. One commenter on one web site said that Sandisk drives are notorious at failing, but that's just an aside (or a cautionary note for the future).
I own three flash drives, and follow this procedure. When you connect a flash drive, it should show up in "My Computer" as a removable drive - with a letter designation. Windows 98 requires driver software, XP and VISTA does NOT.
When you DISCONNECT the flash drive, you should "right click" on the drive icon, and select EJECT. The little light on the flash drive will go OUT, and THEN IT IS SAFE TO REMOVE IT. If you just pull the flash drive out without going through the disconnect ritual, you risk blowing the drive, and it is kaput. Doesn't always happen, but it can.
