|I have 3 x Toshiba brand 8GB USB flash drives. Two of three have stopped working. When they are inserted, about 1 in 4 times, a "driver software installation" message pops up saying the device is ready to use and then noting happens. |
The device is not listed alongside the other drives/devices in the "devices with removable storage" list. I cannot access it in any way.
When I go to Control Panel's "view devices and printers" option, my flash drive is listed as "USB DISK 30X", and I can right click on it and see a browse files option, but what comes up is a greyed out (inaccessible) "Removable Disk (E):" option, so it's no good to me.
If I right click and look at "Properties/Hardware" under DEVICES STATUS it says "This device is working properly".
What I know is that the devices is recognised by my computer to the point that is assigned a drive letter (E), but that's the extent of it. The Flash drive is useless to me.
If anyone has any insight or can hep, I would be most grateful.
Thanks very much
