Relax , as long as your flash drive is not smashed with a hammer
we can get it back up and running , your notebook on the other hand may need a little technical lovin'

if you broke a pin in the USB port , thats gonna take some serious work , if the notbook is under warrenty use the warrenty

if the notebook is passed it's warrenty , then you CAN do the job yourself , you'll need to remove a USB port from a junk motherboard or better , and use that to replace the broken pins

that does involved some soldering with a solder gun or pen
which might cost you about 10 to 20 dollars as of 2008

Good luck and may the nforce2 be with you , always.

I bent my flashdrive and now it won't read. I initially was able to wiggle it around and once it read, I could drag one file to the desk top. Now, I can't it to read at all. What shall I do?


I would check the pins in the end of the flash drive and see if any of them are bent back. If these metal pieces aren't in the right place then the flash drive won't be able to connect to your laptop. I would try bending them back into place with a small flat head screwdriver. If you don't want to fix it yourself then I suggest you either buy a new flash drive or take it to an electronics store for more help.

2. Faulty USB cable: Try a different Cable

3. Corrupt memory: Fix by an expert required such as www.SaveMyUSB.com

Installing Hitachi Deskstar 40 GB drive as slave. Where do the connectors go. It says model IC35L060AVV207-0. Installing drive in Dell 4600


Look at the "connectors" end of the disk-drive.
There will be a set of thin pins for the "data" cable,
and thicker pins for the "power" connector,
and a smaller grid of small pins.
It's these pins that will be labelled/engraved on the casing:
MA(ster), SL(ave), C(able)S(elect).
Move the jumper to the "slave" setting.
Connect to the power connector.
Connect to a "data" cable.
When you add power to your computer, it should recognize the drive.

The drive was damaged during the interuption. This has happened to alot of my flash drives and there is not way to fix it. You can, however, replace the hard drive in the case. Open the case and you will see a small laptop hard drive (that's all it is), purchase a new replacement and throw it in there.

Hard Drive is not reading


Whoops!

Are the pins BENT out of alignment? It is SO easy to create this problem when connecting a drive.

If the pins are bent use the greatest of care putting them back in alignment with the other pins. Now carefully reconnect the drive.

Hope this helps!
