Hello,
I have an ONN USH flash drive that when I plug it into the computer it loads then about ten seconds it shuts down. I don't believe it's the drivers as other flash drives work. Is there any other suggestions as to the problem because I'd hate to throw it out prematurely?


System Configuration: Android / SamsungBrowser 14.2

Hi,

Check the USB flash drive by following these steps:
  • From the Start menu, search for Command Prompt,
  • Right-click on it and select Run as administrator,
  • Next, type chkdsk d: /r /f
    • Note: replace d: by the letter of your USB flash drive.
  • Press Enter to start the process.


This will check the flash drive and try to repair the errors found.

Hi,

As you said your drive is unstable, loads for few seconds, and then disappear so to diagnose this issue I would like to suggest you some methods that I believe help you to resolve this issue easily.

Method 1:

Remove and reinstall all USB controllers.

Press Windows key + X, click Device Manager.
In the list of hardware categories, find and expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.
Right-click every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers node, and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time.
Restart the computer, and let the USB controllers get reinstalled.
Plugin the removable USB device, and then test to make sure that the issue is resolved.
If the issue still exists, try the next method.

Method 2:

This method will install the latest device drivers for your USB device.

Press “Windows Logo” + “W” keys from the keyboard.
Type “Updates” in the search bar and click on the icon “Windows Update” from the search result.
On the “Windows Update” window, click on the link: “Check for updates” from the left-hand side of the window to receive a fresh list of updates.
If the updates are available, then install all the updates listed there.

Hope this information is helpful. Do let us know if you need any further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.
