My windows is being failed to detect to recognize any kind of removal disks. for several days I am trying to use pen drives but in vain. I am in a very miserable condition. I can not pass a day without pendrive. Please give me solution.
First is you have to check if your pen drive is working while plugging it into another laptop or computer desktop. If it works. Then that would mean that your pen drive is not faulty. In your laptop try to run “devmgmt.msc, in cmd command then click on the plus sign before universal bus controllers and update these drivers by uninstalling and reinstalling these drivers.
Second is you open Run in the start button then type compmgmt.msc and enter, then click disk manager on the left, and on the right click your USB drive that appears in the disk management window then click the letter drive change and paths, just assign a new letter drive in the USB Drive, after doing that the pen drive will be displayed in MY Computer.
If your computer can’t recognize your USB flash drive, try connecting it to another USB port. There are four USB ports at the back of the CPU by default plus several other USB ports in front. Try using all of them if the USB flash drive can’t be detected in one USB port. See if this works. If this doesn’t work, try running the System File Checker utility.
Click “Start,” “All Programs,” “Accessories” then right-click “Command Prompt” and select “Run as administrator.” If you are using Windows XP, this is not required. Just run the command prompt. In the command prompt window, type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then hit Enter. When you are prompted to insert the Windows setup CD or DVD, insert it on your optical drive and continue.
Wait until it is finished. Once it is complete, close the command prompt window then restart the computer. Try connecting your USB flash drive again and see if it works. If the problem continues, I guess the best option is to buy a PCI or PCI Express USB card.
