Hi
before I cleaned up my computor (Microsoft XP) I copy info unto a flash drive then when I wanted to put it back into the computor it would not read it, it said (please insert a disk into drive E) when I check the USB flash drive properties, it shows it all blue meaning used space but o bites? why does it show o bites when it is full, and why can I not open and copy it back to my computor, I sure need that info back in my computor. please help if possibe.
Thank You

Didn't find the answer you are looking for?

Ask a question
Ok try this... Right clik on your drive then, copy and paste it in your documents...
Once done, Right clik on your DRIVE and format it, once done that copy the files from the documents to your drive.

DONE!

If the drive shows up under my computer but won't open when you click on it, it may open if you right click on it and hit Explore. My jump drive won't open when I double click on it right now, but it will let me choose explore and I can see all the files in it.

are you using bitlocker? if so go to control panel and click on bitlocker. then you will see your flash drive. press on unlock and that will do the trick.

what I did is that I checked if my usb if it is trully blank but it has something on the properties but it wont open I just thought it was hiding coz it wont open. I created a new folder in my usb and downloaded files and this time those downloaded files can be open so I can still use my usb. thats it

I've actually had this problem on two separate occasions with what seemed to be the same issue. However, one was recoverable, the other wasn't. To find out if it's recoverable, download & install the trial version of an application called 'Data Recovery Wizard v4.3.6'. Run the wizard & click 'Complete Recovery', if it sees your flash drive then you are in luck. However, the trial version won't complete the recovery until you buy the Pro version. At this point do a web search for a similar free product until you find one that will recover it. Or you can spend the money for the Pro version. This was the only product that actually worked for me though. Good luck.

Ok, then try this with the one you suspected not to work at all with "recovery wizard".
Put that usb flash into am Aplle Macintosh pc and I guarantee you it will recognise it and give you access to all
your files on it.

Please send me a reply , when u find out that I was right.

Only had a Mac with OS 9 on it but it still wouldn't read my jump. The Mac said it needed to initialize the drive.

Just for kicks... If you don't have any data you need, you can reformat the flashdrive and it will make it compatible with your computer.

I had a similar problem where my flash drive would work on another system but not my own. I also had an identical flash drive that DID work on my system so I was stumped.

Through trial and error I discovered that the usb drive was using the same drive letter as a network drive. All I did was go into disk management and change the drive letter and then it worked fine!

Hope this helps

Just got this very same problem.. and I got it fixed it rly simply. every PC has more than 1 USB drive. So try every. 'Cause I tried 1 with USB stick and 2nd with Bluetooth conector. USB stick didn't work, but connector was ok. then I switched them and BOOOM. Stick worked in drive where connector was and connector worked in drive where Stick didn't. so Try it. I'm not sure if it works, but it might be the solution ;] GL
