    I have critical work files on my USB Flash drive and MUST get them. I created the problem while traveling. I was checking out of the Hotel and forgot to remove the device. When I got home and took my laptop out of the case, the USB plug was bent. I can move the USB connector up and down slightly, so I must have messed up the solder connection from the connector to the card. Is there anywhere I can take it and have the connector resoldered? Can the chip be removed and the files recovered some other way? HELP!! reply directly to my email.

    I have the same problem. My aunt's Pen Drive was working fine till something happened and it stopped working, I have tried it on many computers and all the computers say: 'insert a removable disk into the drive'. I guess the Drive's gone bad. What I wan to know is that whether we can fix it or not?

Did you already try it on other computers with this drive? If other computers don't even reconize the drive, your USB drive is dead and data is gone.

    wow man... that is sooo wrong! You say because other computers dont recognize it, than data is gone. That has no bearing on whether the flash drive is dead or not!!

Please can you send me detailed instructions on how to use a kingston usb memory stick

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.

Window did not recognized my kingston usb (DT slim)

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.

I have kingston 2gb usb, it has a problem that when i plug in to any computer it recommends to format but the error comes out that "windows was unable to complete format"

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.

I have a brand 2 GB Kingston flash drive. Instructions say upon plug in USB windows will give instructions. All I get is an empty window stating Kingston File F but what do I do with it?

It must be showing your Flash drive as drive F: in My Computer. If yes, then you can use it as any other drive on your computer for copying, deleting, saving etc etc. You have an additional drive on your computer. And best is that you can carry all the data that you save to it to other devices.

My 2gb kingston usb flash drive cannot open / read to any compute

There are several USB recovery programs available. While I don't endorse any one in particular, I tend to stay away from "free" ones, since I believe in the axiom "there's no such thing as a free lunch" since you don't know what's in it for them.

You could try this company, which advertises a free download (but I suspect they are really a shareware company so it's possible that they will want money for a more expansive version) which may make it possible to fix your drive in one instance at least.

If this data is important to you, it's probably worth spending 30 or 40 dollars to avoid a the future, because USB drives get corrupted from time to time.

Anyway, here is the link:

Good Luck and If you find my assistance valuable, please give me a rating.

Imation Swivel Flash Drive Cant detect

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 following specs:

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 on it).

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.
