Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Maxwell 8GB USB drive. When I insert it to my laptop, which is running Windows XP, it cannot see any of the 8GB present on the drive. When I try to troubleshoot it, by going into Device Manager, it states that the "Device is working properly". I have also noticed that read/write red flashing light on the USB drive itself, is no longer showing. I have tried formatting the USB device, but keep getting the dialogue box stating that no device is present in Drive E:, which is where the USB is located. I would very much appreciate your help, as I have some important files that I need to access from the USB drive. It was working perfectly, up to a few days ago. Which was when I lasted used it. Regards, Mike

Click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts also
scroll to disk drives if you can see your drive + to expand right click you should see options update driver disable uninstall scan for hardware changes
select properties you should see options in the general tab to troubleshoot policies volumes driver and details under the driver tab you will have the options to check the driver details update driver rollback driver or uninstall
hope this helps
