usb flash not showing up plz help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello
I have a lexar 4gb flash drive and when I plug it in to my pc it does not show up at all. It does not show up in device manager and disk management. It is as if the pc doesn't even know it is plugged in. Also the result was the same when I plugged in the flash drive to 2 other pc.

Btw. the day before it was fine as I plugged it in to my tv (usb slot) to view pictures and it worked on my pc as well.

thanks

I had this happen with my pen drive when i rebuilt my computer at christmas, i just re-installed windows because i barely had anything on the os anyway. Im guessing your not going to re-install an os for a pen drive but thats what i did
not sure what causes it

It probably died. See if you can RMA the drive (return it to the manufacturer).

Yes here's a question before you RMA, does the light of your usb stick light up as it normally does?
