Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, pls try the pendrive in another computer to verify that it is a pendrive's issue and not the PC's USB port.

A couple of things you can try:

  • use a file recovery utility/program (such as GetDataBack) if there are important files in the pendrive;
  • go to the pendrive's manufacturer's website and download (if available) recovery software;
  • use a utility program to scan/clean/fix, something similar to ScanDisk or Norton Disk Doctor.
If the above will not work:
  • format the pendrive and try to an un-format/recovery software;
  • format the pendrive using HP USB FlashDrive Utility; adn try again a file recovery software.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Pen drive is showing o bytes


I would first put it through a fast formatte then a standard formatte, then i would recommend asector scan and see if there are any sectors that are not recoverable, if they are messed up and or still not solved try to uninstall the file that has stored the recognition files for the pen drive remove the main file in c drive program files , find the file by name corresponding to what it is you have and delet it then do a full shutdown and after a full cold start reboot install pen and software when asked if you still experience this post the results and i will try to help in a higher level of tech knowledge and support
