Using Win 7, I plug in a SanDisk Cruzer micro 2 gb flashdrive to the USB port but the drive is not detected. I can do the same from an XP machine and the flashdrive is not detected. If it was detected, I could go to computer management and select it, but since it is not detected, that is not an option. I have lots of data on this flashdrive and have used it extensively with both the XP and Win 7 machines but now it is not detected. Any thoughts on how to force detection? Unfortunately I suspect the USB connector has gone bad.

With a USB flash drive , no power is a sign that it's expired.

Lifespan of USB flash drives are very unpredictable.
