Try connecting it to a different computer.
If it still is not detected, then it is "DEFECTIVE".
Take it back to where you bought it, and get them to try it in one of their computers, and then to replace it.

How to download from a dane-elec thumb usb into my computer. I had loaded family photos on it a year ago.

You should be able to do it by just connecting it to your computer.
Assuming you have a windows computer it should try to install the drivers and then it would be available on the "My Computer" folder.
If it is not recognizing the thumb usb when you insert it in your computer (nothing seems to happen) then go to:
and download and install the drivers.
Let me know what operating system you are using (windows xp, 98, vista, 7, etc..) if you run into any problems

Have Dane-Elec 4 MB USB; works in one CPU great, in the other, I had to reboot, and then when I look at "My Computer" it appears and disappears every few seconds and I can't access it. Running XP both...

In Control Panel, click on "System." When the System dialog appears, Click on "Device Manager."

In Device Manager, click on "Disk Drives." That should drop-down and reveal your USB drive as a USB device.

Right click on your USB device and click uninstall, then reboot.

This procedure will uninstall the drivers for your device. After rebooting insert the USB drive into a port and a "Found new hardware" window should popup. allow internet access and reinstall the driver--this should be pretty much automatic; just make sure you allow the program to search the internet for the latest driver.

Good Luck!
