Impossible to get the USB flash drive to work

I have a new Satellite L500 with Windows 7 and it will not recognize/install the USB flash drives. A msg comes up saying "software device driver has been properly installed. I tried several flash drives - they are OK & work on other machines - including an another Toshiba running Windows 7.

Other devices work in the USB ports, so the ports are OK.
Windows cannot resolve the problem, I have checked all USB drivers are updated in Device Manager & made a system of analysis of file without success.
The Bank recommended a reload & restore factory default - other options?


Have you installed driver chipset?
Your laptop comes with Vista or Win7?

You have just upgraded to Vista or Win7 clean setting?

  • Windows does not recognize the USB flash drive

    My USB does not work when I plug. It seems that Windows recognizes the device because it is found in the Solution Explorer window, but if I want to create a folder or a file on the USB key I have the following message:
    "Cannot find this article.
    It is no longer in < %3="" null :="" optext=""> . Check the location of the components and try again. " < br=""> also the files that are copied to the USB flash drive are not visible in Explorer and it looks like the drive is empty.

    I want to emphasize that the same (Kingston) USB flash drive works perfectly under Windows XP operating system on another computer so it may not be a problem with the device. The same problem also appears when you use a different USB (another manufacturer).

    Thank you!

    Hey, 101 a.

    , I just posted a fix I found for my USB flash/go to work again.  It was a very simple solution, too.

    I unplugged all USB devices first, then tried my USB jump drive again.  IT WORKED! I've narrowed the problem to the new printer that I use.  It's a Mono Dell Laser MFP 1125.  Whenever it is plugged into a USB port, my USB doesn't work.  All other devices work, but not the USB is the printer is connected

    I don't know what done to block the flash/USB key, but unplug printer allows the jump command to work again.  I will contact Dell on what did the printer driver to block the flash player.  Just an info on the fix I found.

  • Win 7 Backup and Restore does not recognize the USB flash drives.

    Win 7 Backup and Restore does not recognize the USB flash drives for a backup image or a recovery disc.  Given that Windows 7 Starter Edition is used in many, if not most of the netbooks and netbooks have no optical drive, support for flash (thumb) drives would be very handy, especially for repair and recovery.

    Back up and restore: frequently asked questions

    You can't save backups to a flash drive, you need an external USB hard drive.

  • I lost memory to the usb flash drive space, help me please.

    I formatted 2 gb usb flash drive, and now he has 247 MB of available space.
    in computer SCIENCE, I chose flash drive (E), then right-click on it and choose FORMAT.


    1. What is the number of brand and model of the flash player?

    I suggest you plug the flash drive on another computer running on Windows 7 and check if the problem persists.

    You can try to format the drive falash using MS DOS and cehck if that helps.

    (a) click on the start menu

    (b) prompt to type in the start search bar (run as administrator command prompt)

    (c) type "format [drive letter]:" at the command prompt, replace "[drive letter]" by the letter of the drive you want to format.

    (d) then press the Enter"" key. Note that the drive letter must be followed by a colon - for example: "format c:".

    (e) support on 'Y' If you are prompted to confirm if you want to erase everything on the hard drive. Confirm that you want to continue. MS-DOS will start to reformat your hard disk and all data

    on the disc is erased.

    If the problem occurs on another computer as well, then the issue may be with the flash drive corrupted, in this case, you can get in touch with the manufacturer for assistance.

  • WiFi connectivity weird when I plug in the USB Flash drive?

    I found this WiFi connection problem a few days ago, when I plugged a USB Flash drive in "USB port right side' of my MacBook Pro.

    Every time when USB , WiFi won't work - the connection is lost and can not connect to any hotspot even turn the WiFi market.

    I found more weird, ONLY this brand and model key USB could be the abnormal Mac WiFi.

    This problem will not happen to another USB port even I put the Flash drive in the left side, USB port, weird isn't?

    Conclusion, this flash drive cannot be used with USB port on the RIGHT side, another USB port works fine. If WiFi don't work.

    All other USB devices I've owned are working very well on the USB ports on the right or left side.

    Could Apple support or any helps me to understand why this happen?

    PS. I had the Apple's Diagnostics and received a message "no problem found".

    PS #2. Right - same USB port side and next to the HDMI port on MacBook Pro 13 "model 2015" (snack for someone who confuse average left or right)

  • Laptop HP 17 p100: how the usb flash drive big that I have to create a system of 10 Windows Recovery?

    How the big usb flash drive do I need to create a system of 10 Windows Recovery?



    Let me welcome you on the HP forums!

    There is really no way accurately guess in advance, with one of the reasons being that the options are available when you do this.  An option creates a recovery drive minimum with what is needed to repair the operating system.  Another option creates an image that is able to completely restore the operating system and its partition.  Thus, the size can vary from 4 GB to the size of the partition to the OS.

    Myself, I found as build-in recovery to be unreliable, especially those of Ms.  So instead, I use a third-party imaging/restoration solution known as Macrium Reflect.

    What I recommend is the following:
    (1) download and install Macrium reflect (MR)
    (2) run M. and choose the option: "Create an image of the partition (s) required to backup and restore Windows" to write a full backup to an external drive or USB key
    (3) use the option to create a CD or a USB startup key

    My experience is that SIR, when you use the option of Compression high, typically allows to compress the image file recorded at about 50% of the space USED in the OS partition.  This means that if you have a 40GB and 80GB OS partition is used, MR must only about 20 GB to store the image file.

    I use all the time and it usually takes less than 10 minutes to make the backup of the image and at the same time or less do a restore.  In addition, MR has the ability to add a recovery Boot Menu entry.  This then allows you to boot into Windows re, and then you can use it to do a restore - when you cannot start Windows!

    NOW, you have the means to restore a full system that works for the external hard drive or USB key in a few minutes.

    Good luck

  • How to install Windows XP in the USB Flash drive?


    I'm curious none knows how can I install Windows XP in a USB Flash drive?

    You do not, it is not a supported configuration.

  • USB Flash drive not working no-V112b

    Unable to content on a USB flash drive, not getting not formatted. It is within the warranty period. How the guarantee?

    Only if the drive was still usable and allowing for the write you to read the summary file but not. A read-only error.

    You declare that you cannot access the drive at all, is - this correct? If so, I would get the replaced disk.

    If you can read the content, not only to write and run this tool to fix this error.

    Download USB Driver Flash Format Tool (Ufix-II).
    You will need to have installed to extract the .rar of 7 - Zip. It is downloadable for free.
    You will extract the downloaded file "RecoverTool_V2.00.42_M1223 8CE.exe" and run.

    IF this is not what is wrong, then the drive is bad. Trying to force the reader to format isn't going to work. Replace it.

    It will be useful.

  • Get the old hard drive to work on the new processor

    I am a PC Tech company with problems on PC at home.

    My Win 7 Home Premium Dell Studio T435/9000 dead.  It was a motherboard problem, I chose not to replace the CPU/Mo with a duplicate.  The hard disk MBR is good, I could read it and when I installed in an Optiplex 990 at work, it is initialized.

    I had the chance to receive a new Dell T5610 with 2 CPUs of a parent.  It came with professional Win7 preinstalled on an SSD, UEFI boot on a GPT disk.  But all my apps are absent and even a rat-pack obsessives like me do not have all the CD and install the files for the various applications on the old hard drive.

    I want to use my old hard drive on the new PC, then after that it's stable, migrate the old hard drive to the SS disc supplied with the PC.

    First problem was to learn the differences between MBR and GPT.  After this was learning that Home Premium does not work on a PC with two separate processors.  I use Win7 professional for that.  With the help of this forum, I was able to do this by using the Optiplex 990.  I run Win7 Professional on the Optiplex 990.

    I take the former home of hard disk go BIOS to legacy.  Old hard drive that boots on 990, does not start on T5610.

    I try various advanced options, safe mode, low-resolution video, nothing works.  I get a BSOD is a hard drive error, STOP 040000007 B.

    I try Startup Repair tool and get the following:

    Problem event name

    Offline Startup Repair

    1 6.1.7600.16385

    2 6.1.7600.16385

    5 Autofailover

    6 1

    7. bad driver

    6.1.7601. OS version

    Locale 1033

    How can I get my old hard drive to work with the new processor.  Is it a question of Dell, a Win7 Office.  As the hard drive starts up successfully on another CPU, I believe that the hard drive is good.

    Thank you very much for your help!

    Thanks to you all.  But the solution was completely different.

    Dell said the motherboard on the accuracy was so different from my old PC that unless I reinstalled Win7 Professional from scratch on the old hard drive, motherboard would not work with the old hard drive.

    They have guaranteed that the old hard drive would work on a 8700 XPS.  After some problems, I managed to do the work.  Problem solved.

  • File Manager XP assigns a letter already in use when the USB flash drive is connected.

    On a Lenovo S10E with XP Version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr. 090804-1435: Service Pack 3) I have three virtual disks assigned to the files on the C drive.  3 drive letters are D, E & F.  When I plug a USB key, it appears in the file Mgr as 'removable disk (d)', but when you open it you get the file I originally assigned to D.  When you remove the USB key, Mgr of files will no longer display a drive D, but the initial allocation of virtual drive is still active and functional.

    If I plug in a USB CD/DVD drive instead of the flash player, it is correctly attributed the letter G.

    In comparison, on an IBM Thinkpad Z61t, with similar virtual drives defined, when the USB is connected it is assigned letter H (after the edge G CD/DVD drive).  The Z61t IBM has the same level of Windows XP is installed.

    On a Lenovo with Vista 6.0 T500 Thinkpad, the USB is also properly assigned, after all virtual disks.

    But I think I installed all available updates, I wonder if there is a fix or an upgrade for the Lenovo Netbook is going to fix this problem?

    With the USB drive connected, run Disk Management (start > run > diskmgmt.msc), click on the drive and change its drive letter.

  • Satellite A200-1NF needs time to read the USB flash drive

    My problem is that my USB is plenty of time to read the USB keys.

    Could you please help me to solve this problem.

    Thank you.

    Sorry, but for me the question is not clear enough... Satellite A200 recognizes the connected USB MemoryStick?
    If he recognizes the USB device connected, then everything seems to be OK.

    By the way: you said that the laptop needs a lot of time reading the USB...
    How long does it take and have you checked if the number is displayed using different USB ports and different flash memory sticks?

    If this is not the case, what to do
