My new UBS 4GB from DANE-ELEC refuse to open. it says all time inser disk


Unfortunately your USB drive is faulty. You can try to open it up and see if the chip is fitted properly on and if not solder it back into place, but my suggestion is to get a new one.

Dane Elec 4gb USB Not Readable


Try it in a different computer or even a different usb port on the computer that you are using. If a second computer gives you the same error, then the drive is either damaged or its filesystem is corrupted. In the first case there is not much you can do. In the second case you may be able to reformat it to make it work, but you would lose any data that was on it.

Does the OS recognize the device, install the "Mass Storage" drvier, etc.? If it does, try uninstalling then reinstalling the drivers.

Write protected memory card..sd card


There should be a little switch on your memory card reader, if it is facing down, your card is locked. Push it up and then you should be ready to go. :)
