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.

Iam using lexar 2gb micro sd card and it is showing some bad sectors how to repair and recover the data in the micro sd card


Hi:
You might try formatting the card. Go to the drive and rigth click on properties and then click on tools, first try error checking the drive, a box should pop up that has two options 1. Automatically fix the system errors and 2. Scan for and attempt to recovery of bad sectors select both boxes then click start. If all goes well and windows is able to repair the device then your data is saved. If not them reformating the device is the only way to restore the device, but data on the device will be lost..

No driver needed, when plugged in it should just appear in My Computer. If it doesn't that means the memory stick is dead, junk it.
