The memory stick becomes another drive, when plugged into the USB port. Some sticks have a write protect, which is a teeny tiny switch. If the switch is in the protect position, you can read but not write any data to the drive. Often the drive will be listed after all of your camera card ports.
To view the drive press and hold the Windows key and press the letter E. and then release both. The available drives should show up there.
Usually all flash drive are plug and play devices if your computer is not recognizing it you should try plugging it into another USB port and even try plug in another computer to see if it would work.If your flash drive does not work this mean it is dead and the flash drives are not design to get the information off when it is dead.
This usually means that you need to get a new flash drive. Flash drives are pretty cheap nowadays; if you aren't try to get anything really big. You can usually pick up a 4GB for $10 - $15. I would just trash the 2GB before it shorts out while in your USB port and then burns something out.
If you are using Windows 98 (SE) it isn't supported. Otherwise try the drive in other USB ports on the back of your computer. Install the latest Service Pack for your OS. Verify that the drive is not defective by trying it in a different computer.
is it several times that youve used your flash driver at your office?
and which side of the usb port did you plug it? coz when it is your
first time to use your flash drive at your office and your plugging it
at the front side of the PC. well there might be something wrong with
connection and may cause damage to the board of the flash drive. if it
your using it several times, well try to check at your PC, then do the
my computer (right click and select manage)
and under manage window ( select disk management )
try to see if your flash drive registered (you can see the drives of
your PC) and see if theres a volume (either raw/ or theres a partition
if not, well the board of your flash drive might be damaged, mostly
these were caused by the power of the system, fluctuation is one of
them, then improper plugging of the flashdrive.
