    thank, eventually i went to my neighbor who showed me that i had to pull hard to expose the usb end. amazing that manufacturers tell you not to dry your hair in the bathtub, then assume you know how to use one of these things.

    I got an external hard drive for xmas and it's much worse. I assumed i'd simply drag my document folder into it, but instead i had to figure out (on my own) that i was suppose to change it's path. thanks

My computer doesn't recognize my dane-elec 8gb usb stick , although other usb devices do work.


1. Try a different USB port. If other ports recognize it, then the original port is fried. 2. Try a different computer. If the other computer does not recognize it, then your flash drive is damaged.

Good Luck!

Dane-elec usb portable memory does not appear when plugged into my usb port


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 if this fails to fix the problem
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

I have a Dane-Elec 4 GB Flash drive. I used it successfully one time, but the next time I put it in my computer (or any computer after that) the computer recognized the new device but told me "Please...


1) Instead of double-clicking, right-click and choose "explore." I hope it's that simple. Once you're in, look for a file called autorun.inf. Delete it.

2) If it won't let you explore, see if there is a "format" option instead. This will possibly solve your issue of access, and will solve your issue with your confidential data (of course, your data will be gone, but I'm guessing you're OK with that).

3) Try using another USB slot, sometimes there could be an issue with specific slots, especially if you are using hte front USB ports on a desktop
4) I know this may seem silly but turn off the computer, and then unplug the computer from the wall. Leave it unplugged for 30 seconds, plug it in and then boot up the systems. Plug in the USB drive.

5) Finally if the unit still is not being seen, it may need a low level format, contact the manufacturer and see about getting a replacement. I found their e-mail at onlinesupport@dane-memory.com

How do you take lid off or slide back cap so that I can insert into usb port?


The cap slides towards the hole for the lanyard. This will cause the USB connector to pop through it. The cap doesn't come off, it slides further on. Imagine you were trying to make the drive shorter by squishing it.
