Ok, What you need todo, IF the internal circuitboard of the usb memory is still intact, you will need to solder the 4 usb connector pins onto the usb circuitboard of the usb memory.

This is not your device but you should get the idea, you need to solder those 4 connectors back into place, I marked them with red boxes, if the circuitboard is cracked or otherwise damaged, it may be best to give up. Or take it to a electronics repair man, but if the circuitboard is cracked and there are no good connection points the repair will be very difficult but not impossible.

you need to take the plastic cover off from the usb memory and inspect how the board is, you could even send me a picture here by using the attach picture button.

How do I transfer pictures from PC onto flash bar?


Hi Cheryl,

This is a fairly simple procedure if I am understanding your query correctly.
Assuming that the 'flash bar' in question is a standard USB flash memory stick, firstly click on "My computer". This will show you a view of all hard drives and CD/DVD drives installed in your PC.
Next, insert your flash drive into any USB port. Your PC will now detect the flash stick and will add a new icon to 'My computer' which represents your flash stick.
Take note of the drive letter assignment given to the flash drive, eg. "Removable drive E"
Now browse to your pictures you would like to transfer and right-click on the picture. This will open a drop-down menu and from here you simply select the "Send to" option from the drop-down menu.
It will now present you with a sub-menu from which you select your flash stick. ie. "Removable drive X", X being whatever letter your PC has assigned to the flash drive.

Please feel free to message me should you need any further clarification. I will gladly reply with further explanations.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

Can't find one. flash reader shows up as drive f.


If it shows-up as 'F:', then the correct driver is installed.

Insert a flash-card into the flash-slot, and you'll be able to access the files on the flash-card.

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.

Flash drive storage


Re-format it from Windows.
Go to my computer.
You will see all disks including removable flash drive.
Click right button on flash drive icon.
A menu will drop down chose format option.
Do not do fast format , chose a complete format.
If you cannot solve the problem in this way then the flash drive is either .
Some Chinese export companies are selling corrupt or counterfeit flash drives of 4, and 8 Gigs, they lose FAT integrity after a while, and when re-formated won't work properly or will work only for a while.
In this case return item to retailer.
