View Full Version : USB Disk Drive gone!

30-11-04, 13:45
Oh good god, why me, my USB stick i use to transfer files from college to home etc, has stopped working, both at home and college so therefore i assume, it is the disk, windows recognises the device no problem. But upon opening the "My Computer" window within exploror i find it is not displayed, thing is guys i really need some files form the disk, even if it is just the design of a cd rom business image, i still need something to hand in on friday.

Hu hu....waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! (By the way we need a crying smily) :mad:

your laptop might be cold but drives are somewhat different(for exaple my cd drive (my computer was cold the cd drive felt cold 2 but it was gone and it would'nt reapear until i left my computer off for a couple of days)).

Assuming the stick isn't faulty ( :( I have only seen this problem when the drive letter after the last hard drive or CD-ROM is already assigned? I.E. mapped to a network share point for example.

No completely different, the USB Pen device still doesnt appear on any list as a drive or as anything to that matter, although the light comes on and seems to be working.
