Re: usb not recognized
If you use it on win 95 or win 98 or vista you need specfic drivers for you usb disk if you get this on win xp please change the usp ports and use another port to insert the disk one of the ports has to recognise. if the problem persists the usb port controllor on motherboards needs to be checked for faults or uninstalled drivers , if nothing works try a pci to usb internal card and dont forget to loaad drivers . this card has 3 to 6 ports for usb

"limitation is that flash memory has a finite number of erase-write
cycles. Most commercially available flash products are guaranteed to
withstand around 100,000 write-erase-cycles, before the wear begins to
deteriorate the integrity of the storage" This means that your flash card may have been damaged by not removing correctly Flash card are not that reliable AS previous pen drives
On first read, the error message indicates that there is a bad section of the flash memory card in your pen drive. We call these areas, sectors. A utility in Windows, called ScanDisk, which you may be familiar with can scan and then mark the sector as bad and then allow data to be written again.
However, this may be a fatal error and render the flash drive unusable. I'll have to ask you to check a few things to make a final judgement.
First, when you insert the pen drive into a usb port, does Windows recognize the drive by making the familiar tone or do you get an error message on insert?
Thanks for taking a few minutes to answer these questions. I'm afraid I will only have more until we can determine if you have a usable pen drive or not.
Just so you know, this pen drive has a lifetime warranty so it will be replaced and I can provide you with the web site address for doing that should it come to this.
We can fix it -- and recover the data (provided it is recoverable -- which it generally is). If we don't get your data back, we ship the drive back to you and you pay nothing. We've been recovering data for over 16 years and are successful about 85% of the time.
