One my friend is having a transcend 2 GB pen drive, which is having some problem while connecting to my machine. It is not detecting; but in his machine it is working fine. I have tried other 2-3 pen drives on my machine. All are working. Even i use USB mouse also. To make sure, i re-installed the USB drivers. But still that pen drive is not detecting.
I am afraid, what kind of problem is this? Does anybody have any comments?
Does it require special drivers to operate? Check the website and download the drivers for the pen drive not just USB. Sometimes they'll be running something special on the disk that requires drivers to load it properly.
The pen drive is working in other machines without any proble. And i tried after formatting also. Even without data it is not detecting in my machine. I thought it might be some kind of compatibility issue. Or the problem with my on board controller. Mine is a bit old machine. Its been 2 and half years i am using this machine.
Does it show up under the list of devices? Go to My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware -> Device Manager and see if it's listed, and if it has a ? on it. (Might be slightly different depending on your version of Windows.)
may be taking it to the service centre will do the trick.
does it work in other systems apart from his system? at times, some pendrive doesnt work for some weird reasons. try restarting ur system if u havent.
The device is not shown in the device manager. Even the LED in the pen drive is not blinking.
I tried from within Ubuntu live CD, in my system. There, 2-3 times it detected and mounted the drive, but after that it is not detecting. I tried restating the machine. Then also it is the same. Is it possible to have any loose contacts on the board inside the pen drive? I don't have any idea, what will happen in that case...
well... i hope its not some fake chinese product.
take it to the service center.
May be 1 of the 4 contacts in USB may be loose in pc side
