USB Thumb Drive doesnot work

My USB Thumb Drive doesnot work, it says windows cannot recognise the hardware that is connected to the system. Is there any standard troubleshooting for this issue.

Re: USB Thumb Drive doesnot work

Hi Balaji,
What version of Windows do you use?
You ca nsearch the manufatorer site i they have a driver for your drive.

Can you try the drive on another system with the same OS, if it does not work their either it is likely you need the driver from the manufactorer.

Have a nice day,
HTH, Ronald
