"USB device not recognized" error message MacBook Air


The drivers must be up to date and written for your device. If there are no drivers, it will not communicate and thus it may look like it is working and in place, but the linkage is not there.

Sandisk cruzer 8gb suddenly not recognized when connected to my computer


1. Try the other USB slots to see it the board is ok. Most modern pcs have two slots in the front and two to four slots in the back, try them all.

2. Do you have another pc that you can plug it into? If it works on that one you may have driver problem or the board is bad on the other one.

3. Have you tried to plug other USB devices into the slot(s) to see if the port is ok?

I have the same one and have had to mess it sometimes. Have to right clicked the "Safely Remove Hardware" in the right corner of the task bar. Right click and then left click the Safely Remove Hardware. That will show you all USB devices loaded. If you see the Flash Drive, click it and when you see the next prompt to remove it wait a few seconds and then plug it back in. If that does not work, reboot and leave the Flash Drive plugged in and see if it loads when the pc fully is loaded.

4. Goto the Control Panel> System > Hardware > Device Manager. Look for your drive in the list of Disk Drives. Pick it and then pick the Action Menu and Scan for hardware changes. If the Flash Drive is working properly you should not see any errors. You should also be able to see the drive in explorer.

5. If you still do not see the Flash Drive in explorer but you do see it in Device Manager, right click it in Device Manger and unstall it and reboot and let windows search and reinstall the device drives.

Good luck and post back.

Have you tried to shut down your computer and re-start it up again ? (to see if your USB port starts to works again ?)
One thing you should (must) do before you remove / detach a USB device (e.g. flash drive, camera, etc.) from the USB port is to make sure you properly "dismount" (eject/disconnect) the device first (e.g. use its Property menu option) before you physically remove the device (i.e. take it out - remove it from the USB port). If this is not done, you'll get the problems you're experiencing.

When i plug in the u3 flash drive it says usb device not recognized


Hi ,dkjran,

If your computer affected by virus will not show in the pc .so you will install it to another pc,and format it .Flash drive can not recocknize,becayse there are some reason .

  • VIrus affected
  • Sometimes when a flash memory stick or USB external hard drive fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

When the flash memory USB hard drive device appears to malfunction it may be possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash or USB hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted then it will indicate that it is Healthy.

If this doesn't work then it is faulty.

Sir ! when i atteched pendrive from usb port in hp530 laptop give error usb unreconizable


This can happen if the proper driver for this device is not installed or that the USB stick is damaged. If proper driver is not installed go to control panel-hardware-device manager & locate the device and update/reinstall the driver. If it still does not work plug your USB stick on any other computer & if it works then format it once & try again on your laptop.

Usb device not recognize


You mentioned that you uninstalled the unknown device from the Device manager. If you uninstall it then connected your usb flash drive you will see an error again on your device manager. This means that the driver for your usb port is not properly installed.

To install it, visit dell website, look for the model of your machine and locate the driver, download it then install from your machine.
