Sounds like it is dead. They don't have a very long life, even when nowhere near their relatively few possible writes.

If you have a Windows machine, you could try that and a program called "PhotoRec" to try to recover any contents. Chances would seem to be poor.

Hey all,

I have a 256MB and a 1 GB (New) Lexar Jump Drive Secure. When I plug them into my desktop computer on the front ports, I get the "USB Device not recognized" message. and goes on to say that the device has malfunctioned and Windows does not recognize it.

If I plug them into the rear ports, no problem.

When I plug either one of these into my Laptop, no problems, it recognizes both. Both systems use Windows XP Home, and both are updated with all the latest updates and service packs.

I have a 3rd Lexar (128MB) that I can use on any computer with no problem.

What gives?



A:"USB Device not recognized" with 2 different Lexar Jump Drives

I've moved you to the hardware forum for support on this. Are there any other devices plugged into the front ports?

You might check the Device Manager and under "System Devices" look at the USB Controllers. Check to see if they are working properly and look to see how much "bandwidth" is being consumed on both.

In Windows 10, I tried to put a system image on my LEXAR 30GB USB thumb drive but Windows said I can't do that because the drive is not formatted in NTFS. So I formatted it in NTFS and now Windows says "not a valid drive."

Can anyone tell me what's happening?


A:Can't put a system image on my LEXAR thumb drive...

Fat32 is limited to a maximum file size of 4GB. NTFS or exFat do not have this restriction.

To sort usb stick, do this

Run these commands from an admin command prompt


list disk

select disk n (n=disk number of usb stick - usually last in list)

clean (WARNIING wipes drive - be certain you selected right disk)

create partition primary

select partition 1

format fs=ntfs quick




USB stick will be fine now assuming stick is not faulty.

I bought a 4GB Lexar Basic Flash Device and it was working out of the box. Later when I needed to use it Windows XP SP2 didn't recognize it. It is listed as an unknown device in the device manager. I've been through the troubleshooter that came with XP multiple times and they are unable to help. I e-mailed the support group about 2 weeks ago at Lexar and it was ignored. Windows is telling me to install a driver for the device. I've NEVER heard of a driver for a plug-and-play flash drive before, especially when I had it working before. Any help is greatly thanked!

A:Lexar Basic 4GB USB Flash Drive Driver?

You might try deleting the USB drivers and rebooting to reinstall the USB drivers. If the drive doesn't recognize in other machines though then the drive may have failed in some way. Either way, Windows seems to be telling you it sees something there but doesn't have a clue as to what it is, so it asks for a driver. So the drive is either not sending out the right info or the mass storage device drivers are corrupt. Maybe something else but those are the two most likely candidates I think.

I have a jump drive that I tried to install some portable software on. When I realized that this took up over 900 MB, I decided to get rid of it and go with something else. After reading the readme that came with it, I deleted the program like it said to do, and reformatted for just in case. Now it is recognized as a 4 MB drive instead of 1 GB. I was finally able to delete the partition in disc management after changing the driver out for another, but it still shows that it only has 4 MB of space instead of 1 GB. My OS is XP service pack 2, and it shows up as only 4 MB on multiple computers. Any suggestions on how to fix this, or am I stuck with buying a new jmp drive?

I have a Lexan dual-slot card reader that I use for downloading my photo's to my computer. I've had this for over a year and since I installed it, I would always see the drive letters listed in Explorer.

Recently, I tried to download some pictures and when I went to click on the drive letter to open the folder on my card, the drive letter was not visible.

I must note that they show up as drives when I go into the Disk Management utility.

This is becoming a source of frustration and I need to know why this has randomly happened and how to rectify the problem. I really do need to see them listed as drives.


A:Lexar Card Reader (recently) not listed as Drive in Explorer

If it's USB connected, disconnect and plug it back in.
Or go to Device Manager, see if this reader is listed under USB devices, Right click it and choose Uninstall. Then reboot and plug the reader in after the reboot is done. Hopefully this will reinstall drivers for it.

I bought a 4gb jump drive from sony a while ago. It worked fine until I was transferring a bunch of data and someone pulled it out in mid-transfer. I plugged it in and it had created about 50 folders named "0000000.000" and there was nothing in them. I assumed that it had screwed up, so I attempted to delete them. They wouldn't delete. I tried reformatting it several times and even then, whenever I try to put anything in a folder or directory, safely remove it, and then plug it back in, all of the "000000.000" folders get created again. It will hold data, but only if it is in the root dir. Reformatting it is the only thing I could think of that would undo something like this. Any suggestions?

Should be able to reformat the drive ( either via the utility disk which should have come with the drive or windows)
That should clear the drive and start fresh
BUT there's a chance ( in case you don't have the utility disk ) that windows will try to format only 7 megs. I would suggest taking the drive to a puter with windows XP SP2 and format it there.

RIght click on the drive there in My Computer and click "Format" from the context menu. You should be able to reformat the Drive (if given an option, I would choose NTFS over FAT32 for best compatibility). Formatting will remove everything on there, so if there's nothing, it hsould clear all that out. It's worth a shot, anyway.

I have 3 jump drives: A Sony 256MB, a PNY 2GB, and a SanDisk 8GB (with the Cruzer software that comes on it removed). When I plug the SanDisk into a USB port, it automatically opens the drive and displays the files -- the behavior I want. That does not happen with either of the other two drives, despite my making sure their AutoPlay properties are set to automatically open and display the files. I'm sure I'm missing some salient point about how to make all jump drives "autoplay" to display what's in them. What is it?

Also noticed that if I right-click the Sony or PNY in My Computer, and click AutoPlay. . . nothing happens. Must be missing some setting somewhere.

It could be that the user has a 'mapped' network drive on the driveletter that this USB-key wants to use (they only see real HDs and CD/DVD). Move that 'mapped' drive up to the next free letter, then retry that jump drive.

So my friend borrows a jump drive of mine and when i get it back it won't show up on any computer at all. Like i didn't even put it in. Nothing happens, no detection whatsoever.

I've put jump drives through complete hell before and they still worked, what could the problem be? and how could i fix it? if i can fix it.


A:Jump Drive Not Detected. Help.

What kind of drive is it?

I've had a similar problem with a PNY and I ended up going to their site. They walked me through some stuff to try, and ended up blaming me for formatting it wrong. Even though I never formatted it at that point.

I have another el cheapo drive that I have to jiggle just right to get it to work on my PC, and some computers won't read it at all. It was bought off ebay from China.

Is there information on the drive? Try a different USB port? Try a different computer?

Hello and happy new year,
I tried to upload several pics from my jump drive to my yahoo photos and got a message that the file contained no data. Could this be related to the fact that Since I installed AVG free virus scan I can no longer view folders on my external hard drive.Some times the folders show up and sometimes not. Othertimes the folder is there but not the content. I don't get it. Can these problems be fixxed? Can anyone help?

A:Can't Upload From Jump Drive

Have you tried your jump drive/external hard drives on other computers? If so were your files visible?

You might try uninstalling AVG, if everything works okay without AVG try a different AV program. I have been using AVAST AV (it's free) and I like it better than AVG.

I have a Compaq Presario that came with XP Home. I installed XP Pro and now the USB (2.0) slots (six of them) do not recognize my jump drive. It recognized it prior to the software upgrade.

It recognizes other USB connections, and they are all working (according to windows).

I tried upgrading the driver but it continues to tell me it has the latest drivers.

The jump drive works on other PC's.

The jump drive is a PNY attache 128 MG drive.

I have 4 of these PC's and they all have the same problem.

Any suggestions?

This is not really a question but rather a solution to my problem. I am running Win XP on my Desktop PC. Windows would not recognize any of my USB jump drives or my External Passport Drive. Some people have recommended to delete drives and Windows Service Pack 3 to resolve the issue.

If you are running any kind of protection software like ZoneAlarm or any other type of Firewall software; that you do the following:
1. Remove the USB jump drive or other external drives from the USB port;
2. Deactivate or stop all security/firewall software from running;
3. Plug in your USB jump drive again and it will probably work right away;
4. Leave them plugged in and re-activate or restart your security alarm software.

Your security/firewall software should remember the setup and not restrict the drives in the future. I hope this helps.

A:jump drive not working

The jump drives are almost a "disposable item" these days, you would not be expected to always "see" a failure, given the microscopic nature of the components and circuit board tracks.

As it is not recognised, I think you need to assume its dead. It cannot be reformatted etc, as to do so would mean it has to be recognised.

I think the diagnostics you have undertaken are quite conclusive, time for a new one...

Hi, Am running a one-month old AMD PC with Windows XP Home, SP2, etc.

Bought a San Disk MiniCruzer 1G, and use it daily to transfer some files. About a week ago, when I plugged it into the front USB port, it caused the PC to reboot. It worked fine the few days after that until this morning, when it caused the PC to reboot three times in a row.

I have tried plugging in my USB digital camera to that port, and it worked fine. I am not sure if I'm dealing with a defective USB port, a defective jump drive ... or some other, as-yet unnamed anomaly.

Anybody have any suggestions?

A:Help - Download Files onto Jump Drive

Hi Randy,

Sorry, but you can't just copy programs from one system to another and expect to update data back and forth.

Most programs these days require you to install them on each system just to work, although there are some old ones that you can copy; presumably, TrainTracker is one of these. Even if it runs, though, any data you record doesn't get stored in the program file. It's in a separate file, probably either in the same folder that you stored the program on your laptop, or in C:\Users\YourID\AppData\Roaming\TrainTracker.

Even if you find it, you can't just copy it onto your jumpdrive and back on your Home PC as it'll only have the data that you saved on your laptop, and it'll replace all of your old data if you do.

Initially, you're going to have to manually reinput the data you've added to your laptop into your Home PC program. Then, you should locate the file on your Home PC where the data is stored, copy to your jumpdrive, then copy it to the folder on your laptop where the new data was stored. From then on, you should only input new data to your laptop, although you can copy that to your Home PC if you want to keep them synchronized.

When you want to remove the drive, down by the taskbar there will be a "safely remove hardware" icon. It may be hidden so expand the taskbar. Double click on it, and select your usb drive. If you don't see your USB Drive select "USB Mass Storage Device". His STOP. Windows will tell you its safe to remove it, at which point you can remove it.

your flash drive is hosed.

I have had this happen to me before. Your chip either got low-level formatted in which case you'll have to send it to the factory to fix (might be more expensive than replacing it)

OR (even worse)

static zapped the chip.

ALWAYS stop the device before removing it and always remove it when formatting other drives.

A:Attache Jump Drive says not formatted

I'd love to say google is your best friend but in this case the keywords have been SEO'd to death. Almost all the results are for software programs to recover data from corrupt filesystems, not damaged drives.

99% of data recovery companies don't touch flash drives on the NAND level (yet). If they do mention flash drives it's to recover files that have been deleted or lost due to filesystem corruption.

Ok, so here is my problem; I cannot copy files from my usb flash drives onto my PC anymore, I keep getting error message "cannot find specified file". I have 2 flash drives and they both seem to work on other computers. I can copy files onto them just not back onto my PC, OS is Windows XP and it is an older Dell optiplex. This just started about a month ago, prior to that I didnt have any problems copying from the flash drives. I'm guessing that its probably some kind of hardware failure, but I'm hoping its not. Anyway, any advice will be appreciated!

A:Can't copy files from jump drive

If they work on another computer, burn them to a disk to be sure they are saved.
Then try reformatting the jump drives on your computer, using FAT32.
You could have a File table error, a data error, or a hardware error... Some jump drives are famous for failing when carried in your pocket... Cruzer and Kingston most prominent among them.

At my place of employment we have a problem. We just purchased and deployed several HP-2300 Color laser printers. We have found that with the printer connected via USB that our Dell memory sticks are not recognized. If we unplug the printer then the memory stick works. If the memory stick is installed and we plug the printer back in then it does not work! Any ideas?

A:HP printer / Jump drive conflict

Thats odd, although I've had similar problems with HP All-in-one products and other USB devices.

Just a test, if you have any USB Hubs, that have a seperate power source, (some TFTs have inbuilt USB hubs now), try testing out both pieces of equipement through the hub. All USB Equipment drains power from the PC to some extent, and the average business PC doesn't have the ample power that most high spec systems do.

Just a though, David

Hi - Like several others here, I am using a SanDisk Cruzer (8 GB) to sync files between a PC Desktop folder at home and the same folder at work. Trouble is, I can't seem to get it to actually make any changes to any of the files in the Desktop folder at work or at home. The synching application runs, and makes a big show of "synching", but when I look at the files in the Desktop folder on the PC, nothing is different. They do not show the recent updates to the files on the Cruzer.

Anyone know how to set up the Profile in this Cruzer to get it to update an identical folder on the Desktop of two different PCs? Thanks - misterpowers

Hmmm... U3 causes me so many headaches, have you tried updating the U3 software. (backup the data on your flash drive first)

I have been trying to install a new version of windows on my T420s laptop but have been unable to get the system bios to allow me to select the USB jump drive. I have tried a number of different BIOS setting trying to get the drive to show up in the F12 boot list. The only devices that show up are the SSD Hard Drive, the CD/DVD drive and the network boot option. I have searched this site for insight as to why the system will not see the USB, but have not found anything that has worked. Please note I have tried all 3 USB ports, I have 3 different USB jump drives and each of them work when connected to other systems. Thank you.

Hello and welcome,
How did you prepare the flash drives to make them bootable?
