How to recover data from a seemingly dead/non-functional USB flash 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?

Thanks.

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 also have the same problem. If Win98 SE detects the drive than WinXP SP2 but can't install the drivers using Win98 OS, then what website can i download the right drivers for the drive under Win98 SE platform. I am using Kingston USB Flash Drive 2.0GB. Please advise where to download "the right drivers" so that i could retrieve datas on my flash drive under the Win98 SE platform. Thanks.

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.

The thumb drive you have came already formatted and ready to use. It will read as a DISK because it works the same as a CD or DVD disc. A formatted flash drive is set up at the factory and ready to be used by the new owner. Just copy what you want to move from the computer to the flash drive. When you want to remove data from the flash drive, simply DELETE doing the same as you would on your computer PC or Laptop.

How to restore delected files from my usb flash drive


Hi, Even I faced the same problem. I have deleted some of the PDF file from my pen drive and luckily I could get all the files from it. I used Yodot File Recovery software and with the assistance of this software I was able to get all the PDF files. Download free trial version of the software if you want to know how to recover a PDF file. It recovers not only PDF file but also all the files present in the drive.

Lexar Jumpdrive Secure II problem


the directory is corrupted.
when your computer accesses the drive, it knows some things, like how big it was.
but it does not know where the data is.
it does not see anything that tells it what is on the drive, thus the empty window.
not a serviceable unit if the mfg will not give you a fix it program.
sorry for the news.
