    This is a flash drive. It is no longer recognized by any of my computers and the same problem has occurred with my old external simple drive (hard drive) as well as my new one.

    Is this an external harddrive or a USB penstick/flash drive?

It concerns me that you have had other USB storage devices fail on you, it sounds like one of your machines is corrupting the file table of your external storage devices.
BadCopy will be able to help you recover the data off your flashdrive and maybe your other external storgae devices, you can download a copy of BadCopy here:

Can you tell me what antivirus and antimalware programs you are running on your machines?

    Please download and run Malwarebytes on your computer just to satisfy me this is not a malware/virus issue.

It want come up on my computer


Step 1:
Problems with Verbatim portable hard drives vary depending on your model of hard drive, your operating system and your computer hardware. Some problems can include insufficient USB power output, the file system format, and potential overheating due to enclosure materials.

File System b> Verbatim portable hard drives come formatted for use with Mac computers. If you're using it with a Windows or Linux computer, you will need to format it to a file system that your operating system will recognize; Windows computers typically work with NTFS, while modern Linux distributions use ext4. If you have computers with mutliple operating systems, FAT32 is usually considered easier for all operating systems to recognize. Verbatim does not recommend switching a portable drive between PC and Mac computers once you've formatted the drive one way or the other. Adequate Power While most computers supply adequate power with one USB port, older computers can have insufficient power output. If your computer doesn't seem to be powering the drive, use of a Y-shaped USB cable, designed to be plugged into two USB ports, can get more power to run the drive. Additionally, consider trying different USB ports on the same computer; some USB ports get more power than others. Drivers b> Make sure that you have any relevant drivers related to the hard drive that you have purchased. If your drive didn't come with a setup disc, you can check the Verbatim website for product drivers. Overheating b> Of Verbatim's seven portable hard drives, four are enclosed in plastic; of the other three, one is enclosed in aluminum, one in leather, and one in rubber. While all the drives are tested to run well with their enclosure, metal enclosures conduct heat away from the hard drive and help to prevent overheating. Plastic, on the other hand, is an insulator, so plastic enclosures may contribute to heat buildup. Check plastic-enclosed drives for overheating and avoid leaving them plugged in when not in use.

Verbatim store n go usb flash drive 8 gb device not recognized


My Verbatim Sto N Go 8GB USB Flash Drive does not work in any port, in any computer. When I plug it in, the "Device is not recognized" error comes up. When I click on it, and the Unknown Device Properties comes up, the device status reads: "Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)

To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer."



The driver details read:
Provider: Advanced Micro Devices
File Version: 1.0.11.82 built by: WinDDK
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility


This is the 2nd drive of this same brand that quit working within 6 months. I have MONTHS of work on files in this drive, and would hate to have to redo all that work! I was real careful after the first one went bad to use the eject button when removing it from my computer. But I am thinking the last time I clicked the eject button, it froze, so I just pulled it out without the message coming up. Hopefully there is someway to get the computer to recognize this drive again???

Make sure that you are connected to a usb port on your computer and not thru a usb hub. Also try a different port on your computer. It is unlikely that two hard drives would be bad, but I would try them on another computer. Thanks for using fixya

Hi, I have just rebooted my PC, and find myself missing the driver to my Verbatim Hardrive 320 GB. Is it possible to download a new driver, so I again can watch all my pictures I have saved? Hope you can...


No driver is needed, it's just a basic USB external memory. If you get a message about a driver then the pc no longer recognizes it correctly, which means that it has failed.
Your only hope of maybe recovering some data out of it is to dismantle the unit, extract the actual hard disk from within and connect it directly in a desktop - access it from My Computer.

Verbatim drive not recognized


Hello

I brosed the internet for a conclusive sollution and there is none.
But i fount some tweaks of my own that works me.

If you usually plug in your flash drive into the front USB panel of your case and it does not recognize the drive, unplug it and plug it in the back panel of your case.

An other thing you can try is to restart your system with the device already pluged in. The secnd one is not very practical, but it does work.
Please rate this

Best regards

Verbatim portable hard drive not recognized by XP - works in 2000


Restart XP and connect e/hd and it should pick it up. Some systems are plain lazy after a while, so manually install it.

USB Drive no longer responding


Ok,

So it wasn't obvious damage then lets do the next step, Right-Click on My Computer, then select Manage, when the MMC opens select Device Manager on the left side, Open USB Devices and look for USB mass Storage controller. If it is not there then it's likely the controller board in the Verbatim shell is dead.

If that is the case, your best bet will be to drop by a local computer store and purchase an empty HDD enclosure to move the drive into.

If it does show up as a USB mass storage controller but not as a drive the problem is more likely in the circuitry of the HDD itself and you may require the assistance of a data recovery pro.

Verbatim 1GB flash drive data recovery


Sounds like you broke something ;)

If your computer does not recognize anything when you plug it into the computer, your problem is most likely a broken contact inside the usb drive.

You should attempt to open the drive, and see if one of the four contacts on the inside of hte usb key are no longer making their way to the circuit board, and try to reconnect it.

IF you can push the connectors down with your fingers and make contact temporarily, and the computer recognizes it, try to just hold it there while you copy all your data off. Then throw away the flash drive.
