Usb Pen Won't Connect To Pc

I tried to plug my usb pen into my pc (xp sp2) to download some photos. The pen said it was being charged but the pc seems to have no linking that it's connected. I can't force it to pick it up when it can't see anything there at all. I've not been able to connect it to the pc since.

Can You Compress A Usb Pen Drive ?

I am currently using win98, and i went to the properties of the drive and it said that i could compress it. So instead of being 64mb, it would be about 120mb. Is that possible or safe?

Usb Pen Drive I/o Device Error

I've had an iomega 256mb pen drive for about 18 months now, and whenever i try to access it in my computer it says: the request could not be performed because of an i/o device error. I can't format the drive either. This happens on all of the 3 computers i've tried it on. I'm not worried about getting the data on it back, i've got backups of it. Anyone got any ideas on how to fix it?

Usb Flash Drive Pen Stopped Working After Trying On Win 64

Flash drive pen usb has been working fine until i took it round to a friends house and tried it on his pc. I didn't know it at first but he is running a different version of windows. It's win 64 bit and called something like windows 64? Anyway, i don't think this drive supports it and ever since i tried it there it hasn't worked. The light doesn't come on anymore, it won't read it and i can't access anything on it. Has trying it on an incompatible operating system permanently ruined it? Is there anyway to get my xp to recognise it again? Luckily the only things on it are backed up elsewhere but i don't want to have to buy another one just for something silly like this. Any advice?

Pen Drive Scan Automatically By Antivirus On Connected To Usb Port ?

Pen drive must be scanned automatically by anti virus software while it connects to usb port?


The functionality you are talking about is available in some anti-virus suites. (I think) if your anti-virus suite doesn't has that functionality then search for any other small application which can help you in this matter.

Usb Pen Drive - The Disk In Drive Is Not Formatted

This issue happens most of the time with my pc which is running win xp pro, p4 1. 7ghz, 1gb ram. By most of the time i mean every once in a while it works fine. I'll plug the sandisk 512mb pen drive into the any usb port and i get the message "the disk in drive ? Is not formatted would you like to format it now?" If i click yes the format window comes up then i get the message "windows was unable to complete the format" "the disk in drive ? Cannot be formatted". This also happens with my floppy drive.

Fix Corrupted Pen Drive

Okay, so i've got this really stupid pen drive, and unfortunately, it's the only one that i can use at the moment. I need to submit data that's about 400 mb in size tomorrow in school, and will get whooped if i don't. It's about six years old, and was lying around, as i was scavenging for a pendrive/cd. As it's sunday evening, i can't really buy anything right now. The thing with this drive is that my sister formatted it once(it was the first time she did so), and after formatting it, the size went from 1 gb, to 8 gb. :O

Although it could carry around only 1 gb of data in it, the 8 gb size still popped up every time it was plugged in, no matter which system. And then, that pen drive was with my sister for quite some time, and the first thing i did when i got it, was that i had hit format. Now, after that, every time i try to copy any data in it, after about 150-250 mb of data transfer, it shows an error saying that the disk in write protected, and it stops the transfer after that, and if it's one big file, it cancels the transfer. I formatted it, and ran disk check, and ticked both the options (automatically fix system errors, and scan and attempt for recovery of bad sectors). But it says windows cannot complete disk check, if i tick both the check boxes, but when i do none, it finishes it successfully. Please help me out, it's really important for me to fix this thing and get those files to school tomorrow, otherwise, i'm messed up!

Flash Voyager Pen Drive Dead

I had bought a corsair flash voyager 16gb approx 10 months ago. I had a problem with it, as explained in this thread.consequently i sent it back to ocuk for rma and they sent me a new one immediately. Now. This is about the new one. I've had it for around 8 months or so now. But hey it's got a 10 year warranty!

This time i can't even check the pendrive out in any manner. As soon as i stick the drive i get a bsod - check out video of me inserting pendrive and getting bsod immediately. Either the bsod, or else my pc just stops responding with the blue circle vista cursor going on forever until i pull the pendrive out - as in other video here. What do you think?

Can i do some checking in some way, avoiding the freezing/bsod'ing, before i contact ocuk? Admit i'm feeling a bit awkward making the 2nd rma for the same object.

Pen Drive Not Showing Removable Disc Icon In Computer

When iam connecting my pendrive to pc it is recognizing but not showing the removable disc icon in my computer?

So your pendrive works fine but only problem is that you don't get the icon in the system tray to get it to show. Simply click on the blank space near the system tray and choose customize notification icons once the windows pops up search for the removable disk option and select hide when in active and then apply thats it your have the icon back on the system tray.

Usb Connect Problem

Okay so this started off with my mp3 player. It would connect, disconnect, and reconnect about every 30 seconds. I was thinking it was the usb ports, but my tablet is getting picked up fine and is working great on both ports. Then i was thinking maybe it was the mp3 player cord. But then i connected it to my xbox and it worked just fine, connected like it was supposed to and i could play all of the music. Now, i've come to realize that the same thing is happening with my phone which was working yesterday. The phone is not being found by my computer but is being charged from the computer. I also tried both usb ports but no luck. It might be the ports, but my thought is if my digital tablet is being picked up by both of them and working properly then they seem to be fine. Also the phone and mp3 player are charging off of the usb so it's being picked up, but it's just not connecting. I have no idea, and am not really good with stuff like this. I was told i might have to repair my laptop, and was told i could just buy a new one for the amount i would have to pay for repairs. Any help?

Connect Printer Using Long Usb Cable

Better way to connect printer and scanner? I am using printer and scanner in my house. Due to space restriction, i am not able to keep both in the same place. Then i thought of moving the scanner / printer to next room or near by convenient place and i bought a lengthy usb cable. Now with that new usb cable my computer is not detecting the either printer nor scanner. Can any one suggest a better hardware arrangement to move printer / scanner at least 15-20 feet. Recently i have seen belkin home base, seems it is very expensive.

Usb Wireless Adapter Wont Connect

I went to a clients house today, he has a windows xp machine running off a cable modem, and a wireless linksys router. I purchased a netgear usb wireless adapter, with excellent range, i installed cd rom software, and can see the wireless router sending off a signal at 65% bouncing to around 40%. When i connect, it either says limited connection or no connectivity. I reset the router, checked the wep password, etc, still cant get it to work. He says another tech came over awhile back and had the same issue and couldn't figure out why they could not get a successful connection. I to am having this trouble and would like to fix it soon! What should i do? Buy an actual router for his dell desktop to connect to the other router? If so will i have the same issue? What type of problems can this be caused by? And what are my options?

Can I Connect Usb Preamp To Lcd Monitor?

I am thinking about buying asus mt276he lcd monitor. I will be using this lcd monitor solely for ps3 console gaming. For gaming sound, i was thinking about connecting my m audio usb preamp

To the monitor. Both of my m audio bx5a studio monitors and krk10 s sub-woofer are connected to

The preamp. Sadly, the monitor does not have a usb port. I am not sure how i can connect my preamp to the monitor. Are there any adapters out there that would allow the connection? Moreover, would it make more sense to connect the usb preamp to the ps3 instead of the monitor? Does ps3 even support usb?

How Can I Format Pen Drive Drive?

How can i format my pen drive drive?, I am so worried abt my pen-drive. I have a pen-drive of 2 gb which was working good and fine till some minutes ago. I have 2 operating system, i.e, ubuntu 9. 10 and windows 7. What happened is that, logged on to ubuntu 9. 10 and started to do some experiments(i am not good at linux), i had got a minipentoo's iso and there was a procedure to install it in pen drive, so i carried out without more knowledge. I typed some commands like fdisk /dev/sdc and then

D (delete the partitions you might have)

N (new)

P (primary)

1 (number 1)

Choose the size you want. A (bootable flag)

1 (number 1)

Do it the size you want 1 gb is enough, the whole is better

W (write)

I even tried this:

Mkfs. Ext2 /dev/sdc1

But it went to saying error after first or second chance. And then i gave up, and i also remember i went to the disk utility and deleted the partition of the disk. So i messed up a lot. Finally, giving up my work i am logged on to windows just to find my pen drive is not working , first it proposed to format and i agreed but the formatting was-unsuccessful, it said that it "the specified cluster size is too big for fat", and clearly it made no sense to me. Can u help me how to format my pen drive right from the bottom and have it to use, it has no physical drawback, it is so fine and i also do not agree that the pen drive is gone, it is just messed up and i don't have the idea to get it back.
