USB Flash Drive recognized but unspecified! Need Help! Tags: Computers Storage USB Flash USB Drive Last response: September 27, 2013 5:41 PM in Storage Share hereforhelp September 27, 2013 4:59:32 PM Hey all, my girlfriends having some serious problems with her usb drive. She keeps a lot of her important data on it (not exactly safe... I know.) and it started acting up today. Anyways, when I insert the USB drive my computer recognizes it but fails to install the drivers. It ends up looking something like this http://i.imgur.com/DwEEOPq.png where it doesn't show up on Computer Management. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... is the USB drive in question.. I've tried looking for support drivers online but to no avail. I would really appreciate any help on this issue. I'd hate to have to resort to sending this to a specialist if I didn't need to. Thanks again guys and girls!
