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!

on your pc make sure your motherboard chipset drivers are updated to rule out a bug. if the stick does the same on her pc she can try running

see if it can recover her data.

Thanks for your answer!

I tried Recuva earlier but Recuva can't locate the USB Drive and I can't assign a drive letter to the drive to get it recognized.

I am going to update my chipset drivers but I have the same problem on my laptop and her pc as well.
