Hi im new at this and not shure how to use this 4gb flash drive,i installed it in to the usb port and nothing came up ,can you help to tell me how you work it i have a sony pc with windows xp

Firstly, make sure you're logged in an admin account
  1. Click Start > Run
  2. Type diskmgmt.msc & press Enter
  3. If the initialisation wizard doesn't pop up automatically, scroll down the bottom half of the list to find your flash drive (starts with disk 0, disk 1 etc).
  4. Right click the unallocated space of the flash drive and click Format
  5. Follow the onscreen prompts.
If you can't see your flash drive in the list, try another USB port.

Broken Flash Drive ? , Flash Drive not working ? Dont trash it just yet.

Many people believe that when a flash drive stops working , you can throw it in the trash...this is however a expensive mistake to make as about 30% of drives can be repaired.

There are basically 3 causes for a flash drive to stop working.
  1. Partition is corrupted
  2. Broken electrical contact inside the drive
  3. Memory module is blown (no repairs possible)

#1 Partition is corrupted

If your flash drive's partition is corrupted you will not be able to access it. To fix this , do the following.

Go to My Computer
Right click on the flash drive
Select Format


Check the Quick Format option
Select Start

After the format is completed , test the drive. If it disappears or was never present to begin with , but windows detected when it was plugged in , try re-assigning the drive letter for the flash drive.

If you do not know how to do this , please follow the steps in the following tip i wrote : How to change a drive letter.

If the drive is not present in the disk management window , proceed to step 2.

#2 Broken electrical contact inside the drive

If the drive does not detect on your pc , this might be the cause.

What you need :
  1. Soldering Iron and Solder
  2. Magnifying Glass (Optional)
  3. Desk Lamp
  4. Superglue

Open the cover of your flash drive. This is normally done by pulling the two parts apart. Then have a look at where the USB is soldered onto the PC board. There will be four metal contacts soldered onto the board.


This is normally where a electrical fault will occur.

If you find one of the contacts are broken , simply solder it back into place and glue the cover of your drive back on.

If these steps fail to fix your flash , you can dump it in the trash with confidence that its dead.

Please rate this solution if you found it helpful.


Kind Regards

I have a scandisk titanium 4gb jump drive. It has stopped working. I have to get data off of it.

If you can still see your flash drive in my computer but cannot open it there is a chance of recovery use either ( pen drive recovery,Getback data for FAT)
to recover your data

but if the flash drive is completely dead then youll have to chck check if up at your nearest electronic repair shop for repair

Windows asking me to format my flash drive

Just format your flash drive! Before you start formatting your flash drive, transfer all data from your flash drive 'cause when you format your flash drive, it will erase all the data. After you have formatted the flash drive, then you can transfer back the data to your flash drive.

Klash drive will not fill

What is a klash drive? Are you thinking of, as Smithbrother asks, a flash drive or thumb drive?

If you are, most don't hold exactly the amount they say are. For example, a 1 gigabyte flash drive will hold somewhere around 950 or 965 megabytes, a little less than the drive is listed as. That's common. If you're using a small flash drive (and that's what you're referring to), a 1 or 2 gigabyte flash drive costs as little as $12 to $16 dollars, sometimes half that price. If you're using a small size drive, consider getting a larger one.

Let me know if this answers your question.

I have a usb flash drive with data on it and now the flash drive can't be read. The light on it flashes but it will not open.

Sounds like the Flash drive has corrupted data. I can't find any free software that can help you repair corrupted USB drives, but VirtualLab DataRecovery is rated pretty highly, I would download the trial and see if it works for you.

As a note, Flash memory does "wear out" over time, and it will eventually be unable to write/read any data. So it's important to never keep all your critical documents on a Flash drive. It's only meant for temporary transportation of data.

Getting photos to load to usb memory flash.

what is the size of the flash drive ? try a few pics at a time and see how many you can get. the file format on the flash drive is FAT and I think 1 GB is the transfer limit...Ok few at a time not select all at once.

I hate to think but i hope that it is not a hard drive error.
