My flash drive won't apper on my pc as I told you on my message title. My flash drive heats up after I use it for 1 min. it doesn't apper on my pc and I have important things on it!!! HELP!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!
I had the same problem for weeks and I couldn't figure out why it would work on my personal laptop but not my work PC.
My problem was that the Flash drive was using "H:" as the drive letter and I already had "H:" assigned to a network share. The computer obviously recognized it because it appeared in the Disk Management, but it was assigned to H: and the PC already had "H:" connected to my share. I could have just changed the drive assignment for the flash drive to another letter and restart the PC as previously mentioned but I was in the middle of working on something and restarting my PC wasn't the best thing to do at the time. I decided to try to disconnect my "H:" network share and reconnect it using a different drive letter ("J:" in my case). After doing that I reconnected the flash drive and it opened fine under "H:"
I've read all the answers to this ( Sounds like a load of Guess work to me). Here is how to fix this problem quickly and easily.
I have a EMTec 32Gb flash drive, which every time I plug it in window's doesn't recognise it. The fix is very easy and it works every time.
Go the the computers Device Manager from within the 'Computer Managment' screen.
At the bottom of the list of devices is 'Universal Seial Bus Controller'.
Exand this window. You will notice that there is an unrecognised device in there. This is the key that you just installed.
Directly above this you will see a 'USB2 Enhanced Host Controller'. Highlight this and right click on the mouse.
Select the 'Unistall' option on this device.
At the top of this window there is little monitor icon with a magnifying glass, click on this. The computer will then scan itself and reload any devices and hardware it finds. It will also load the flash drive so that you can access it.
