I just pulled out a flash drive without eject!

I am technically challenged!  I just released flash drive without ejecting it.  I put it back in, but he does not appear.  Can we do anything?


Reboot and you'll probably be back in business again.

If you use a hub, it might be prudent to USB devices (1) draw their connectors, (2) to zero and (3) re - insert the USB devices. This resets the USB card.

  • Want to play songs from flash drive without putting them on my computer

    We have recently improved our computers at work and I can not only plug my USB key and they have to play the songs.  Now media player wants to put the files on the computer, and since it is a work computer I can't do.  Is it possible to play the songs on the flash drive and not copied to the computer.  Thank you

    What version of Windows and what media player do you use?

    You should be able to open Windows Explorer, find the music files on the flash drive and double-click a song file to play without adding it to the library.  You should also be able to modify the settings of the player of music for him ask that the library is on the Flash DRIVE instead of the hard drive.
    Note: If your company does not allow you to copy the music files on your hard drive, they can also frown on you insert a non encrypted flash drive.  I don't know fact.  Actually, there is a Windows policy that prevents installation of unencrypted flash drives.  You can check if your COMPUTER policies allow unencrypted flash drives mounting.

    See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

  • Question about creating a recovery (file system) USB flash drive

    Hello and happy new year to all, (I'm from greeece, sorry for the mistakes of language possible)

    (Pavilion dv6-6c01ev - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit - bought 08-21-12)

    I want to create a USB stick recovery, and I just bought a USB flash drive 32 GB 3.0 for this reason.

    I've never done it before, but I have read how, according to the this page.


    My question is:

    What file system must be the USB key, before the decision-making process? FAT32 or NTFS ?

    Bought, thati USB file system is FAT32 by default.

    I already read that on the page above: 'a message of Recovery Manager opens indicating that the flash drive will be formatted. Click OK to format the USB key and continue. »

    but I would like to have, and a more definite answer from someone who knows better.

    So, does change the NTFS file system.

    or should I now start the manufacturing process of the recovery USB flash drive as it is (FAT32)

    Thank you for your help



    I have already created the recovery USB flash drive, and formatted Recovery Manager the disk before the process,

    and at the end, when the recovery files was written and verifyed.

    I look at the file system of the USB flash drive, and it's NTFS...

    I worried for nothing...

    Thans anyway...

    Hi Wally, the hard disk OS X and all of your files. Get a case for your reader, and it backs up. Try OWC

    Always keep your Mac backed up on an external drive with Time Machine or utility of cloning like SuperDuperor double clone.

    Put it in a bag of rice for a few days or more. -seal the bag.

    If you remove all the moisture, it shouldn't affect the USB ports if nothing is
    possible. Usually it is not a problem if the moisture is removed.

    I need to download a driver?

    It would be difficult to say that you haven't told us the manufacturer and model of the flash player.
    Neither you told us what version, edition and level of service pack of Windows® you are running.
    All of the above information is important to answer your question!

    Please note, however, that in Windows® XP Service Pack 3 , drivers are not necessary for newer flash players.  If you have not upgraded to the SP2 minimum, you can have trouble reading flash drives.  Download and installation of the SP3 may solve your problem.

    In addition, your hardware supports USB 2.0?  If this isn't the case, you may need to install a separate USB controller to use flash drives.  See the documentation for your system.

    If you have SP3 and your hardware supports USB 2.0, answer these questions and we will take it from there...

    No member of this forum is omniscient.  You just have to tell us about your hardware.

  • How can I reset my password without a reset disk or flash drive?

    Sorry, I should have removed a few additional references CD in my recipe. Here it goes again - it's just like before. Your challenge will be to make the flash startup disk. You will probably need the help of a computer-savvy friend.

    1. put your BIOS so that it uses a USB device as its primary boot device.
    2 start the computer with your repair Windows 7 USB flash drive. Here's the recipe to make one:
    3. press a button if prompted to boot from the flash drive.
    4. Select 'PC Repair' in the menu.
    5. Select repair when prompted.
    6. When you are prompted, select System Restore.
    7. set Windows to a point before this problem occurred.
    8. Once completed, remove the flash drive before restarting the system.

  • then I just remove my hard drive without crashing the system

    I just back up files on the HARD drive. There is no system files or programs on it. Can I remove and replace it with a bigger memory HARD drive, without crash the system?

    Yes, you can remove the HARD drive without crashing the system by closing the PC, unplug the power supply from the socket and then remove the HARD drive.

    Please note that the physical HARD disk is different from scores.

    Hard physical HARD drive or disk drive is the hardware component for storage. The capacity varies.

    A HARD disk cannot be used directly when it is connected to a computer, that's why storage units with file tailored to the needs of the system to create, known as partitions.

    A partition can be a complete HDD (for example, if you have a physical HARD disk and you have only one partition C:\) or may be more than one partition of a physical HARD disk (for example, if you have a HARD physical disk and two or more than two partitions, such as C:\ and D:\).

    Therefore, you can check for the exact physical HDD and then remove it. To do this, you can go to the computer-> storage management. Check the link for more information:


    This will show you the number of physical drives present in your PC and the partitions present in each HARD drive. So, once you confirm the HDD backup and partition (make sure that there no Windows installation, as says iFuton), you can shut down the PC, unplug the power supply and then remove the HARD drive.

    [Please note that you have nothing to do in the management of the computer, except to check the partitions and hard drives (denoted as disk 0 disk 1 and so on for disks hard physical as well as the corresponding scores appear accordingly)]
