USB Storage Device

I dropped my device on the ground on a wet day. The case cracked which exposed the chip on the inside. It hasn't worked since. Is there a way to retrieve the information or is it gone forever? Help!!

With this type of device when you encounter a problem like this and when the chip is damage or got wet there will be no way to retrieve the date from it because the devcie itself is already bad..

Hope that helps.........

My toshiba 16 gb is not reconized

if you are referring to usb drives or scan disk cards if its a scan disk card it must have device to plug it into (camera ,phone,navigator) if its a usb drive you must plug it into a usb port if you want to use the usb drive

click start click on my computer you should see your drive it will be listed as something like G: or H: or if its in a device it might be seen as a mass storage device

click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question/exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the driver
right click to reinstall drivers

if you can see your usb drive but its not working
if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
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
hope this helps you

How to use sd card to upload pictures from pc to flash card

Yes. Operating systems that recognize memory cards usually provide access to them similar to the way other storage devices (such as hard drives) are accessed. Use an SD Card reader, mount the SD Card as a USB Mass Storage Device and drag and drop the files over to it. Remember the old 4.3 floppy drives? Insert it into the computer, access it through MY COMPUTER (if not prompted by the computer depending on your operating system) and drag and drop onto the PC. I hope this helps and good luck!

I can not figure out how to open the reader to insert the disk.

According to what I was able to find the device does not require to be opened to insert the storage media.

I am assuming the device you are referring to is the same as the device shown in this link:

If you are having troubles getting your storage media to fit into the slot then it is possible that the media type is unsupported by the device or that the storage media is being inserted incorrectly.

I hope this solves your problem, best of luck.

Make sure you have the Second Edition of Windows 98 (Win98 SE). Pendrives will not work at all with the first edition of Windows 98 or with Windows 95.

USB Cables

most of them are easily found. You could take it to your nearest radioshack and they should be able to point you in the direction of a new cable.
