USB not showing up in 'my computer'

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i have a 128gb usb and im on windows 10, when i plug it into other computers it works fine, it's formatted just fine, reformats just fine, drive letter is assigned, i've tried uninstalling usb drivers & rebooting...

but for some reason on my dang gaming pc i can't get it to show up in the list of useable drives!

any idea?

So basically on clean install of Winblows USB stick doesn't show up or just used parted magic on USB stick?

I don't know much about W10, but if Windows wasn't reinstalled then try standard procedure which works on 7/8/8.1:

1. Run Command Prompt as Admin

2. Enter “set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1″

3. Enter “start devmgmt.msc”

4. In the box that opens, select “Show hidden devices” in the ‘view’ menu.

Remove all unused devices. It's very possible that drive/device enumeration is faulty/corrupted and system cannot see the pendrive. Don't use 3rd party software like USB Oblivion.

If it's clean install of Win10 then sorry I haven't got a clue.

yea i'll try that when i get home.

all i did was:
-loaded parted magic
-deleted partitions
-windows wouldn't show the usb (disk management shows it, but not windows explorer)


the windows 10 install isn't a recent one it's been reformatted this year sometime though, i may need to restore to a previous system restore checkpoint or whatever if the CLI commands you mentioned don't work.

otherwise i may need to reinstall windows. hopefully it doesn't come to that but... whatevs it'll give me a chance to secure erase my SSD lol
