  • Windows does not recognize the USB flash drive

    Hello
    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.

  • Satellite L20-100 cannot access a USB Flash drive

    I recently bought Toshiba Satellite L20-100
    I installed a USB in Kingston datatraveler flash drive and windows recognized it without problem.
    but when I open my computer there is no icon for the reader (it works on another computer well).
    the drive is recognized in Device Manager, but it is not given a drive letter.
    When I open disk management and try to give it a drive letter it still does not show on my computer even after a reboot.

    Although I can access the disk management flash drive and can open, copy & paste the files & to her.
    same problem happened with a card reader.
    other USB devices like cable modem & mouse work well

    What is the solution

    Hello

    Is it possible that the USB is not formatted? Try changing the file system on the USB key.
    You can also try to change the drive letter because the letter assigned automatically sometimes gives some conflicts with other readers.

    Second possibility:
    You can try to clean all the USB stored device settings and let Windows refresh their.

    Create a file with Notepad containing the following lines and save it as a BOOKMARK. REG
    -cut after this line-
    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Environment]

    "DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES" = "1".
    -cut before this line-

    Double click on FIX. REG and say yes to the merge into registry question.

    Unplug ALL USB device.
    Open the Device Manager.
    View, show hidden devices.
    Uninstall all devices under USB controllers.
    Uninstall all devices in hard drives that you know are not present.
    Uninstall all devices in storage Volumes. Say no to all reboot prompts until you are finished.
    In addition, if a storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore her and move on to the next.
    If you have a yellow? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

  • USB flash drive will not format

    Dane Elec 16 GB USB drive flah.

    When inserted, it tells me that it needs formatting. But I can not format, because somehow, it is write protected. However, there are not switch or any possibility of mechanics to remove the write protection.

    I tried unlocker, formatting to ntfs (with XP, Win7, and BACK), but nothing works.

    Any suggestions?

    Groet puts goede Rob

    Hello

    Have you tried to format your USB key, but instead to use NTFS you use FAT 32?

    Click on windows start orb
    type cmd and do a right click and select run as administrator
    type diskpart
    disc type list
    Select the drive that is your USB. For example, if your USB is no disc select 2 then type 2
    clean type
    type create partition primary
    Type format fs = fat32 quick
    Type exit

    Now see if it finally formatted your USB Flash drive

  • USB flash drive receives an error "volume does not contain a recognized file system" in Windows 7

    I plugged my USB on a windows 7. He always invites me to analyze and correct or cancel. I cancelled each time, but I got bored with it popping up each time, so I said to investigate and fix.  A loading screen came so I waited patiently. After that it asks me to format my USB flash drive. I can't format it but because I have files from work to home and all my other personal files out there. So I cancelled the format, but every time that I plug it into my computer it asks t format. I even plugged in on a computer running windows XP and wanted to get in shape. When I try to run it without formatting as it is said, "E:\ is not accessible. The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted. "My question is... what we Windows 7 to my USB and how can I recover my data?

    This is common with USB drives used on different operating systems. It happens alwaysto me when I use my drive to work (which is managed since my MacBook Pro) on Vista and Windows 7 client computers. Like you, I learned the hard way you must cancel the digitization of Vista/Win7. The only thing to do at this stage is to connect the player to a computer that can read the files OR use the software of data recovery on it to get the files. I believe that Recuva can do it for free. Format the Flash DRIVE, then start again. Either way, you don't want to use a USB key as a single backup of important files because - as you have unfortunately discovered - stuff happens.

  • Windows 7 does not detect not USB flash drive

    Hi, any help much appreciated on this. Windows 7 does not detect USB flash drives on my laptop. I know that readers of work on other computers and all the USB ports. He does not play sound when plugged in the first time and does not anywhere on my computer. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

    Assuming that you have several disks that work on other computers...

    If you have tried several USB drives on the same port

    AND

    This port does not recognize the USB device plugged in, while the port is not operational.

    IF

    All ports respond in the same way

    THEN

    You don't have either not installed the correct drivers

    OR they did not physically.

  • Satellite L675 - 11 H - cannot access and/or played on USB flash drive files

    Hi all

    I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite L675 - 11H and tried to transfer files from a USB Pendrive on my hard drive from Toshiba. The files were already transferred from my old laptop (HP - XP) on my USB flash drive.

    Unable to access the USB flash drive to any of the USB ports that I connect my new laptop flash drive. What could be the problem here? Thank you for your help or tips!

    Hey Rush,

    Can you post more detailes about this behavior? What happens if you connect your laptop HARD drive, you don't see that Windows installs the drivers for the new USB device or do you have an error message? If you have connected the USB check of Windows disk management if she s recognized there (Control Panel > system and security > administrative tools).

    Have you tried other USB devices such as USB mice? If they don t work too the problem might be connected to the USB ports. In this case, you must delete all the USB ports on the Device Manager and restart your laptop. Also the chipset driver update might help.

  • Cannot access a Windows 7 upgrade USB flash drive

Read jasmith31 problem, but do not have a Security tab in properties. No error other than "installed device driver. Help please

    Hi lakeside71,

    This problem mainly occurs when windows 7 does not assign a drive letter for your USB drive. It occurs especially with the new flash drives connected to the computer for the first time. Assigning a new drive as such letter should solve the problem.

    Please follow the steps in the article posted by Shekhar on how to achieve this.

  • Strange behavior USB Flash Drive Satellite A100-626

    Hello

    I did install Windows Vista Business Edition on my Satellite A100-626 (PSAA9) following the instructions provided in the Web page of drivers.

    So far, everything works as expected, except for one little (or no) question.

    When I ask Vista to 'Remove hardware safely' my USB Flash drive, a Popup appears telling me to remove it. So far, so good :D

    The only thing is that the flash player is not put out as could be expected and and yellow question mark appears in Device Manager.

    Opening of the question mark can read what follows:

    "Windows cannot use this hardware device because it has been developed to remove safely, but it has not been removed from the computer. (Code 47) To resolve this issue, disconnect the device from your computer and plug it in again. »

    Following the instructions above, the light turns off, lol...

    Someone else met this strange behavior? If so, any solution?

    I tried a few USB flashes that run well on XP and they both do the same thing.

    Thank you, Nuno!

    Hi Nuno

    It's very strange. I have the Satellite A100-504 (comes with Windows XP Home edition). Last week, I installed Vista and all the stuff followed Toshiba document instructions facilities. I use the mouse wireless, external HDD USB web cam. With the help of these external devices together I never noticed a similar behavior.

    You have the same situation with all the USB ports?
