I have a solution to your problem.kindly send me photograph of the cut ends opened up and the end of the microusb showing the soldering points. i shall then guide you well . also if you have a continuity tester and a voltmeter then things would be easy.
you have to identify four points two data and two supply
ground is always black and red is always negative. the rest two are data. which are usually white in color

Hello, My USB device got bent. I carfully bent it back and it looks okay but my computer said it malfunctioned. Is there any way to get my info off of it?


Probably just broke the solder join on the USB plug. I have used a fine tipped soldering iron, and re-sweated the join again, and you will probably fix it.

My flash drive bent and I think some of the inside wiring is messed up. Is there somewhere I can take it to get this fixed or someway to recover the files I have on it?


these flash drives are very easy to damage, You have to understand that its very risky to solder on the board because of static will destroy the information on the chip. If you want to get the information recovered and the files are not able to be replaced by downloading you are talking alot of $ for this recovery cost. you can contact this company who is sandisk certified to recover sandisk products.

I have a 1 GB flash drive that is physically broken and my laptop won't recognize it. The pin got bent and was partially out of the case.


relax , as long as your flash drive is not smashed with a hammer
we can get it back up and running , your notebook on the other hand may need a little technical lovin'

if you broke a pin in the USB port , thats gonna take some serious work , if the notbook is under warrenty use the warrenty

if the notebook is passed it's warrenty , then you CAN do the job yourself , you'll need to remove a USB port from a junk motherboard or better , and use that to replace the broken pins

that does involved some soldering with a solder gun or pen
which might cost you about 10 to 20 dollars as of 2008

Good luck and may the nforce2 be with you , always.

Sandisk cruiser micro 4gb flashdrive repair


Your best bet is to contact the vendor you purchased it from first, and many are good about replacements in the first 12 months. If that doesn't pan out, contact SanDisk directly at 1-866-726-3475 .

My Sandisk Micro Cruzer just Went Out


The only thing you can do to recover the files is to open it up, remove the NAND memory (it's soldered on the board) and replace it on a working Micro cruzer to get the files.

The USB connector broke!


I did the same to the cruzer as tedthehobit, and here's how I fixed it.
1) Split open enclosure with screwdriver alone edge. The small key-ring will come off when enclosure is separated. (Safety glasses, please). Circuit board is attached to plastic base--the piece for sliding the connector.
2) To see amount of damage and trace connection, remove the plastic as follows. Two notches are on each size at socket end. The other end has plastic bar across on-top. Use needle-nose piler to chew away top of notches, slowly and carefully to avoid stressing board and damaging surface. This makes it easier to move the notches to the side to lift the board up and out.
3) Look at pads where socket was attached. Fairly clean break, surrounding circuit trace and pads are intact. So, it is worth to continue.
4) The socket connection side has no large pads to solder wiring. The D+ and D- traces were lifted off slightly, but too thin to attach wire. Look at the other side.
5) Use flashlight as backlight, and follow traces from connector pads to ends of closest chips where it is big enough for soldering. [I have jpg of connection points--where to post it?]
6) Use wire-warp (hair-thin and pre-stripped) wire and small-tipped solder iron and work under bright light. Tin wire with traces of solder and remove excesses solder from iron tip. Connect wire to chip, melting and using the solder already there.
7) Solder other ends of wire to the correct tabs of the usb socket.
8) Plug usb socket into a socket extender to plug into PC. Extender is optional, but it will help to deteach from PC later.
9) Did not work the first time because 5V-line solder at circuit was not good (eventually came off). Re-solder. Plug back into PC, and cruze lit up and PC can access the file.

Flash drive was bent


You could try attaching another USB terminal/plug (soldering it), but then if you lost your files, you could try using Professional Data Recovery services... but that's expensive.

Cruzer micro 4GB, unreadable in USB ports


sounds like your USB connector of the flash drive is damaged. Could be a loose/broken solder joint, or one of the pins on the USB connector could be damaged.

If it was my drive, I would open the case, solder a new connector on the board and backup the files.
