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.

How can I make my USB flash drive work again? I asked this question before but I have a Mac, not a PC. no light turns on, nothing comes out in the computer, I have tried it on different computers, i'm...

An USB flash drive is made out of a memory and extremely simple controller chip installed on a tiny board with a connector.
If the drive is completely unresponsive then the chip died. This is terminal, nothing can be done to save it or to recover what was in it.

The pc does not detect the usb drive, the usb flashes. But nothing comes up

Make sure it is inserted all the way into the usb port. If nothing comes up, this doesn't mean it isn't connected, it just means autoplay isn't on. Once it is plugged in, go to the start menu > computer. This will open a folder with all your drives, both internal and external. Double click on your flash drive's icon to open it.

When i plug my 4g cruzer micro usb memory stick nothing happens the cpmuter dosnt read that it is plugged in

Try a different USB device on each of the USB ports on your computer.
Hopefully, all your USB ports are working correctly.

Try a different USB port on your computer.
Hopefully, the SanDisk will be detected on one of the ports.

Try a USB port on a different computer.
If the SanDisk still is not detected, then spend $10 to buy a new 4GB flash-drive.

My Sandisk 4GB Cruzer wont work ... When i conect mu USB it wont flash and a bubble comes up on my computer saying unkown device please can anyone help me thank you,. And im on windows xp..

Hi!

Try plugging it to another USB port on your computer, preferrably a rare one.
Also, try plugging it to another computer.

If none of the above worked, I'm afraid the pendrive is damaged and have to be replaced.
You can take it to a special lab that specialized in data restoration in order to take the data out of it...

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Best regards and good luck,

My scandisc was in the usb drive working fine all at once the light on the scandisc went out and now it does nothing i need help to get the data off of it stored for work computer does nothing when I plug...

Have you tried plugging it in another computer? If it worked, then the USB port on your computer (the one the scandisc was plugged into) is burned. If it doesn't work in the other computer, then the USB drive's chipset is burned ... unfortunately, data recovery is very difficult, but there are specialized companies that do this.

I didn't click safely remove hardward device when I took out my flash drive, now it won't recognize my flash drive at all. It will work on other computers so I know the flash drive doesn't have a problem.

This should have nothing to do, with the safely remove hard ware option.

Plug the USB key back in and check your device manager for conflicts? If the usb key is listed as a conflict, uninstall it and then reconnect your usb key.

Also, is this computer on a network... if so, it may be a coincedence, and a entire issue all together.

Put it this way, if the USB ports on your computer still work with other devices, and your flash drive works with other computers... nothing is wrong with either. Something is just probably conflicting with it
