Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Flash drive got bent while plug into the usb ****


Answers :

Try plugging the flash drive into another pc and see if it works.. or if the usb hub is the problem try another flash drive or usb component on the same plug and see if your computer detects it.

\015\012your question was not very clear.. but if your concern is about the flash drive been broken there's probably not much you can do if you're the one to blame for the accident. flash drives are solid state memory that can't be removed for the case and put into another case without risking damaging the chips inside and the data with it... but if you need to try make sure you protect the unit from electrostratic discharge so get another unit just like your's that is not bent, try to open the broken one and see if your memory stick inside the flash drive is still intact and just replace the casing if possible (i never done it myself but I guess it's worth to try if you really need that data)

This has happened once before and I think Windows XP fixed itself after some time, but I don't know how. While transferring files onto a 4gig flash drive, I got an error message that one file could not be copied as the parameter was incorrect.

I impolitely pulled the drive out of the slot and now every time I plug any flash drive into either of the front side USB ports I get a message that the device has malfunctione

No anything I have a Dell Dimension 9100. Last night while trying to plug in a USB cord for the widescreen monitor, I got a USB power overload error which I reset after trying to plug it in twice. This is a weird Usb cord because it has four small holes that plug into four pin like projections in the Usb port. Upon examining the port, it looks like the pins might not be lined up quite right. I suspect the cord was pulled out when we moved the computer earlier to install a new hard drive. Anyway,
