Reinstall the software for this device. Make sure you gracefully exit from the flash drive and not pull it out before it has ejected.

My flash drive is no longer being recognized ("the device has malfunctioned").

Searching for drivers for a flash drive will not help. Flash drives can go bad. The fact that it worked the last time you used it does not guarantee that it will work the next time. One possibility might be that the popup for it is disabled. You might try this: insert it, wait a minute or so, then go to "my computer" and see it is there. If it is, I would do a format - not the quick one. If not, depending on which version of windows you are using, get to "Disk Management" and if it is there, it might just need to be initialized and reformatted.

How do i get my computer to recognize my usb flash drive

If your device drivers are up to date, the USB ports are totally recognized. If the USB device plugged into the port is not initialized, it may not be recognized by the computer operating system. If a USB flash drive was working and no longer works; it could have been damaged when removed from the computer when last used. Flash drives are sensitive to Static Charge. Like when you rub the feet on a carpet and a spark of electricity jumps from a finger to another person. You must use the Eject method when removing Flash Drives.

L have forgotten how to use my USB to up music on it from ltunes.....when l plug it in to my computer it flashes for a few seconds and then nothing..not sure what l have to do ...l have tried finding it on...

Once you put the flash drive into the USB port, double click on the "my computer" icon. This will open up and show all available drives on your computer. The flash drive will have its' own drive letter. Once you log into i-tunes, when you go to save the file, make sure it goes to the flash drive. If your USB port is not recognizing the flash drive, try to do a system restore to a previous date. Try to go back at least 30 days (if you have created restore points on your system), then re-connect the flash drive and it should begin to install the proper drivers. If this is not your only USB port, try another one, if it is your only port, try plugging another USB device into it and see if it will recognize it.

I have a SanDisk Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive. I need to transfer my data from my old windows98 computer to a new Windows7 computer. However, My Windows98 computer does not recognize my SanDisk Cruzer USB...

Take a router (wired or wireless), and use Ethernet cables to connect the two computers to the router.
Configure the old computer into the same "workgroup" as the new computer (and restart it).
Right-mouse-click on the folder containing the files to be transferred.
Click to enable "sharing" of that folder.
On the new computer, browse the "Network Neighbourhood".
It may take a few minutes for the new computer to "find" the old computer (working through the router).
Access the folder that you "shared".
Copy the files, over your private network, to the new computer.

My Windows XP is no longer recognizing my cruzer 8gb

With the flash drive plugged into your computer, go to start>settings>control panel>administrative tools>computer management>disk management
Your flash drive should be there. Right click it and select "change drive letter and paths." Click on "change." Change the drive letter.
Just follow the directions to finish.

Sometimes, if you turn the computer on, insert the flash drive, and reboot, the drive will show up, it is detected on start along with your other drives.

(I recommend starting at the end of the alphabet (Z) and work backwards when selecting the drive letters for flash drives, that way, in the future it will be easier to recognize them.)

Can't find flash drive on my computer after inserted into USB port.....Comes up saying not in right port..I have transferred photos onto it several weeks ago, but can no longer retrive them from the flash...

Try removing the USB drives from the Device Manager, then power down, plug in the flash drive and power backup again.
Win should find the drive and reinstall drivers and recognize the drive again.

Despite improvements in the behavior of Widows, it is also still advisable to 'turn off' a removable drive before unplugging it.
If you system is pretty much standard, you should find the drive symbol with an arrow indicating 'remove' on your task bar to the right.
Left-lick on that symbol and it will bring up a short menu of any removable drives and then just click on the one you want to pull.
