Do other computers read the flash drive? If not, faulty drive. If yes, it may be recognized but you have Auto-play disabled. That's actually a good thing. Assuming this is a Windows computer that is at least XP or newer, open Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) BEFORE connecting the USB drive. Then left-click on the My Computer item. The right side of the screen will display all currently recognized drives. Plug in the USB drive and watch the righ side of the screen. I'll bet a new drive will appear within about 45 seconds. If so, just double click on the new drive and you'll see all your "stuff". If not, you may have a faulty USB port.

I have a 4GB data traveller which is not recognised by any computer which I have tried i.e. XP & Windows 7. The error message is "USB device not recognised"


Your flash drive seem to be faulty,because you try it on more than one computer and you get the same problem,you should replace the flash drive.

How do i use my new sandisk cruzer?


insert the flash drive into your computer and wait for it to be recognised by windows. Once it has been recognised and installed it will tell you that it is installed and ready to use.

The just go to wherever it is on your computer that you have your photos stored, select your photos right click and click on copy, then go to 'my comptuer' and double click on your flash drive to open it and paste your picture there.

Or select your photos, right click, select sent to:- and send to your flash drive, it may be recognised as removable storage.

Im plugging my flash drive into the usb and nothing is coming up. this one works in other computers but not this one


For starters, what is the operating system of this computer?
Windows XP will recognise flash drives, 2000 seems to recognise some but if you have 95, 98 or Me you need to install a driver for the drive. The manufacturer of the drive may not even supply one.

Computer won't recognise camera to download images


** Problem Solved **

I found it wasn't the camera entirely to blame. I tried another USB cable on another pc, and although the camera was doing the same thing as my problem, the computer recognised the camera as new hardware, and asked me how to access the pictures. So I was able to get the pictures from the camera to the computer, and then saved them on to my Kingston flash drive. So taking the flash drive to my daily PC, I plugged in my flash drive via a USB extension lead, and discovered that would read either... alarm bells rang. So I unplugged the lead, and put the flash drive straight into the computer direct. The computer recognised it immediately. So plugging in the extension lead again, and the flash drive, it read this now. So I tried the camera, and it recognised it.

So I don't know exactly what the problem was, but it was solved... saved me a lot of running around and money ;)

IOGEAR COMBO not recognised


Is your hard drive detected by the computer? Did you try changing the USB ports? You can check if the drive is detected by Right click on taskbar > properties > startmenu > customize > advanced > scroll down completely and select system administration tools "Display on the all programs menu" > ok. Click on start > all programs > administrative tools > computer management > double click on storage. click on disk management(local) here you should see your drive. If you dont then the drive is probably not detected. If you see, you can just re-format it from here and it will appear in your my computer.
