Preferred Solution: hp pendrive is detected but other pendrive not detected.i dont have product key.i need product key.i need to format my windows 7.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I had purchased a Transcend Jet Flash 700 USB 3.0 16 GB Pendrive from Flipkart in mid September 2011. The pendrive is not even a year old.

Yesterday I inserted my pendrive in a friend's laptop to transfer files of around 1.5GB. The pendrive had more than 10GB free space. 70-80% of the transfer was done but then his laptop's battery drained off and the laptop obviously got shut down. Since then, whenever I insert my pendrive in any device the blue light on it blinks for around 10 seconds and then the light turns off too. The pendrive is not detected.

I have tried reading the pendrive on my friend's laptop, on my laptop and my tablet too. On each device, the pendrive's light blinks for about 10 seconds but nothing happens.

Please help, is there any way by which I can fix it?

Answer:Pendrive not being detected - Please help

Do you get any error message?

Does the pendrive show up in Disk Management? If so a screenshot will be helpul to give a trageted solution hopefully.

That said, if you do not have any data that you may want to recover, you may try Jetflash Online recovery

Keep us posted. Good luck.

I have few PNY USB Pen drives, which were recognized and read properly earlier. My XP operating system had a virus problem and I had to re-format and re-install again. Since then the system does not detect th PNY USB Pen Drives. It detects and reads other pen drives such as JetFlash. I have checked the PNY Pen drives on other computers, and they work just fine.

Answer:transend 4gb pendrive not getting detected

Try this:

1. Power-off your laptop.

2. Remove AC power.

3. Remove battery.

4. Unplug your pendrive.

5. After about 10 minutes, connect your battery, AC power cord, switch on your lappy and let it settle down.

6. Plug your pendrive now.

Windows 7 hopefully will reinstall the driver and make your pendrive accessible.

This process has worked for some. I hope that it works for you too.

Answer:Twinmos Pendrive not detected-win 7

Hello Kamrul,

With the USB flash drive connected, you might open Devices and Printers to see if the USB flash drive may be displayed here. If so, right click on it, and click on Troubleshoot. Follow the instructions it gives you. If it finds a solution (ex: to install a driver), it may ask you to approve before it will.



Hopefully this may help,
Shawn

Answer:pendrive is detected but not showing in MY COMPUTER!

Hi

There could be a possibility that the port where USB attached couldn't recognized so try the other slots and wait until finish installing the drivers thus it may show correctly.

Or go to Device Manager and find add new hardware so that it refresh when something new detected.

Hello Techsupport Gods,
I decided to build my own computer and got all the compatible parts.

I put everything together and decided to go down to my local Altex electronics and pick up a OS for it.
They suggested a 124$ windows 8.1 core OEM 64bit. I purchased it, went home and stuck the cd in. Booted from the CDROM drive and went to install windows on my clean and brand new 128gb SSD. When I put in the product key it keeps saying that it is invalid.
I called Microsoft and gave them the key and they tell me that it is good. They tell me that Altex gave me the wrong OS and that I need windows 8 core to be able to get windows 8.1 that I purchased.

I'm super confused and thought 8.1 was free after you purchased 8.1. But I bought 8.1 full oem 64bit, shouldn't windows 8 be with it?

Anyways, any suggestions on my next course of action?

Answer:Windows 8.1 product key not detected

Why would 8 be with the 8.1 dvd?






They tell me that Altex gave me the wrong OS and that I need windows 8 core to be able to get windows 8.1 that I purchased.



Maybe that is an upgrade key?

If so, suggest you take it back and buy regular retail ( not upgrade) 8.1.

$124 sounds a lot. I could get the full retail for less. Not that I want it, ghastly thing.

You would be better getting win7.

please do help...

Answer:pendrive not able to format...!!

Worst case: Your pen drive is dead. A pen drive that has gone through thousands of Read/ Write cycles can die a natural death when its flash controller decides that it had had its full run and it is no longer safe to write any data on it.(simple non-technical explanation. )

Since you have not given any details about the pen drive in question like the model/make/capacity, for how long you have been using it, whether it is still under warranty, whether other pen drives works normally on your computer,whether you had tried this pen drive on another computer and with what results, and if it shows in the Windows Disk Management how does it appear (is it RAW) etc., etc., it is not possible to give any specific suggestion to deal with that problem.

So here you go on a round-trip.

Evening All:

    I have 2(SanDisk 32Gb) pendrives that are formatted in NTFS. This presents a problem. They are "recognized" as HDD's and thus, cannot be "ejected" in normal manner using "Safely Remove Hardware" icon. When I try
this, there is not an 'eject" to click. I believe this is because the NTFS format makes[reads] them a HDD and, of course, HDD's cannot be "ejected". So, is there a command that I could run that would change the formatting from NTFS to FAT32
without having to empty all the contents of the drives, re-format, then re-install all the data?

I have an Asus G771JW notebook. Did a clean install of Win 10(after upgrading from 8.1) now whenever I try and search for Intel drivers, it says it can't detect any devices. When I go to manually search for drivers, I'm only offered desktop board drivers.

Asus only offers chipset drivers for 8.1 still, I installed those and even installed the one's from the sticky thread here, still the same thing. I just want to make sure I have the right chipset drivers installed.

Answer:Intel Driver Update Utility says no devices detected for my product

Same thing happens here. I had to install Intel chipset 10.0.2.7, and then upgrade this driver to the new 10.1.2.8.
I tried 10.1.2.8 at first (as this is the newest) but I still had a yellow questionmark on a "SM-device" in device manager. After installing the older 10.0.2.7 this was gone, and then I upgrated to 10.1.2.8 and averything seems in order. Maybe. I think. Perhaps.

Has Microsoft changed something in the latest April Windows Updates?
I create a default Windows 8 Enterprise VL image on my laptop in audit mode as I have always done previously.  Nothing has changed from my side.
When I install the image via WDS, everything installs fine.
When I use my WIM file to install via USB, it now comes up with:
The product key entered does not match any of the Windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key.
right after selecting the install language.
I have checked EI.cfg and it is normal:
[EditionID]
Enterprise
[Channel]
Volume
[VL]
1
I then tried adding PID.TXT with my Enterprise KMS key and, rather than error it then prompts me for a product key.
Surely using the VL install media it should never ask for a product key.  It never has before. (And I've never had to before)
I prepped the image as normal using:
C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\Sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:C:\Windows\win8unattend.xml
Any ideas?  I can't but help thinking something has changed in the latest batch of Windows Updates.  It's quite frustrating as not all my machines are capable of PXE, so I have to use USB.
The reason I think it is a recent change, is if I do a default install and DO NOT do any Windows Updates, it all works fine.  Only when I install the latest WU does it start doing this.

Answer:[NEW] The product key entered does not match any of the Windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key.

OK, So I've fixed it now, but I will still like to know WHY this has changed.

If i do this to my WIM, it then installs from USB:

imagex /flags "Enterprise" /info c:\temp\WIM\ME\install.wim "Win8Office2013Enterprise-x86" "Win8Office2013Enterprise-x86"

I wonder because I use the WDS capture image if this has somehow changed recently.
Very annoying, but now at least I can install my custom image :)

I am at home from college for the weekend. My computer has been acting up and I want to format the C drive and install Windows anew. Problem is that i left my Windows CD at college (2hrs away) (yes it's legal). This program supposedly can tell me my CD key, and even change it. So my question is: Would it work if i installed Windows from my dad's CD, then changed the CD key to mine and activated then? I don't know how the Windows activation works, but it seems like it should work to me. Thanks for any help
 

Answer:Format + Windows reinstall from a different CD, but same product key

I can't see why that would be a problem. You just need to make sure you contact M$ if you are putting it onto a different system with different hardware. But if it is just a format and reinstall on the current system, all should be ok.

So short story, I work at a college tech site that fixes student and faculty computers. A foreign exchange student from Japan with a Sony Vaio (most likely from Japan as well) managed to get a virus on his computer and he was blocked off our network. Our policy is that we wipe and reinstall the OS to ensure that the virus is gone. However, we didn't have any Windows 7 Home Prem media CDs so I downloaded a Win7 Home Prem 32bit iso off of MSDN and burnt it to disk. However, when entering the product key given on the bottom of the laptop(and I've checked 3 times now to make sure it's correct), I get a:

"Product key does not match the current Windows SKU" error.

Why is this happening? Do I need a certain burnt iso (from Sony in Japan?) because of the laptop's foreign origins or is something else causing the problem here?

Answer:Product Key Does Not Match Current Windows SKU (Foreign product key?)

Yes, you need a Japanese iso, they have regional editions.

Nowadays computers shipping with Windows 10 no longer come with a Certificate of Authenticity attached to the back or bottom of the PC. Instead, PC manufacturers have worked with Microsoft to embed the product key directly into the BIOS or EFI. This is where the tool can help you.

Hi,

I don't really know if my post is in the right forum section, but here is the idea.
Since I installed windows 7 on my new laptop, a MSI Ex625, I encountered some problems.

- I have some buttons, one of them is used to choose the alimentation mode of the laptop. An other button used to put my laptop on the "cinema pro" mode which activates my subwoofer and improves the video quality.

- I can't install Quicktime anymore and use iTunes (but it is another problem).

So, I contacted the MSI support and they told me to install the drivers for my laptop from their original website. That operation done, nothing changed. So they asked me to make an upgrade of my BIOS.

The fact is that I never performed that before and I am still looking on how to boot from a pen drive in order to install the new version of the bios. Would anyone know how to make a bootable pendrive for win 7?

Any help is welcome.
Thank you for watching

No hard diskpartitions were displaying.Since i was left with no options, i selected to install on pendrive itself. Obviouslyit couldnt format it or repartition the free space in it, since it contains the installation files.My previous os was xp (but preloaded with win7). Now i was left with no os onthe laptop.My cd drive was damaged so i can not use any cd?s.Please suggest me what to do..Thanks in advance.

Answer:Couldnot Install windows xp via pendrive

What machine did you use to transfer Windows setup to the pen drive? Does the BIOS in your machine support USB boot & did you set the boot sequence?How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

Hi!

I've just upgraded my Sony Vaio from Vista to Windows 7 32 bit.

I've done all upgrades form Microsoft and from the Sony site.

The problem is that the OS crashes when I plug an USB pendrive, but not always.
Blue screen that indicates that I may upgrade the BIOS (but I've already done it).

It seems that this happens when I have an explore 8.0 windows opened, but I'm not so sure about this.

Any ideas?
Drvers problem? (but It's only an USB pendrive!)
Any Microsoft upgrades that make conflicts?

Thanks

I have one Sandisk USB 2 OTG pendrive which can work on mobile and PC/Laptop. When I plug into the port the message pops up as sd/mmc card.
I have recently burned on it one iso with Rufus 2.4 with multi bootable OS of 7, 8.1 and 10 bootable. I have enabled usb as the first bootable device into bios but it does not boot on my laptop. The message that i got is "efi usb device (generic sd/mmc) has been blocked by the current security policy".I have burned the usb using GPT as partitioning scheme with Uefi enabled. Hence security should not have been the cause.
Could it be that the usb device is sd/mmc and not actual pendrive. I have purchased it as USB OTG pendrive from amazon. Capacity is 16 gb.
Could it be possible that because od SD/MMC drive -it does not support booting.
Please advice me what is wrong with my device or anything else.
Ashok

Answer:Pendrive does not boot on my Lenovo Laptop with windows 10

It probably is because the OTG drive is being recognized as SD/MMC - most computers will not boot from SD/MMC. I would use a regular USB flash drive.

I have a pendrive partitioned in two, which I did on my Mac in Disk Utility. The first partition is a linux bootable install pen formatted to FAT, the second is a data partition, also FAT. Interesting OS situation, I know.

Under Linux or Mac OS X this set-up works perfectly, however in Windows (every version) it will only read the first partition, which is no good seeing as unless I'm rebooting into it I don't need it.

The format has to be FAT as Mac OS X doesn't support NTFS without 3rd party add-on's and Windows can't read HFS (and I don't think EXT) by default. I need to change something on the drive as most of the Windows machines I use aren't mine to install stuff on.

I think the problem could most probably be solved by changing the partition order but I don't really want to do this since I have no idea if the Linux installer will boot if it isn't on the primary partition. Is there anything else I can do to make windows recognise the second partition, instead of or in addition to the first?

Thank you in advance.

Answer:Windows doesn't recognise partitioned pendrive

Run disk check

Vista will not read flash drives using FAT

Since upgrading to Windows 10 I can't open html files stored on an external pendrive. The files are the originals of a website. Other sorts of files don't seem to be affected
The online versions of the web pages work fine, and copies made from the pendrive to my hard drive will open fine too.
But if I click on the originals on the pendrive I just get a blank browser window (Edge) or my usual homepage (Chrome).
I've tested this with two different pendrives to see if the pendrive could have developed a fault, but with the same result, no webpage, just a blank browser window or my usual homepage.
I've tested the pendrives on a non-windows 10 computer, on which they work fine - clicking the icon opens the file in my usual browser.
Is there something obvious I'm missing? Any suggestions welcome!

I will not question whether this is legal or illegal. This comes from Microsoft:

For non-corporate users there is this from my own experience: I have on occasion run into three or four customers who attempted what is known as casual piracy by installing his XP onto a second machine. I have had to get only one customer out of this mess (about two years ago or longer) but the workaround was easy. (By the time his grace period was up, he had installed many programs and didn't want to be forced to do it again.) We called Microsoft, gave them a credit card number and they worked us through some steps that fixed the problem.

We then rebooted and was asked for a valid key.

I do not remember the steps as it was quite some time back and I saw no reason to keep notes on it.

Microsoft asked no questions about why he attempted piracy. I think they are just happy to get the money.

I should have came to this conclusion sooner, but my current re-installation of Windows has some problems that I haven't had the time to address until now. What I need, though, is access to the repair function on the disk. However, herein lies my problem...

When I boot up, media in the drive or no media, bios does not show the drive in its list. I can still open and close the drive as if nothing is wrong there, but I cannot "boot from CD". I've reset my bios back to defaults and while the drive appeared on IDE Channel 1 in the settings, it still would not recognize ANY media while booting up.

I have the latest version of my bios. I have also tried changing cables. The drive is on an IDE channel by itself.

Once my system boots into Windows, however, the drive is recognized and acts normally as if nothing happened in bios. Media operates fine. I have checked the event viewer, and there are no entries anywhere that states my optical drive has been experiencing problems, and yes, in fact it operates just like it always does.

Can anyone help me get my bios and cdrom back together again? The problem is I just do not know where to start to solve this. I wish I could say how long this has been happening, but I really don't know as of today. There have been no hardware changes in the past three months, and my current installation and configuration began back in late April.

Thanks for your time...
 

Answer:CD/DVDROM drive - not detected by bios, detected by Windows?

What is the boot sequence in the bios? should be CD or optical drive first, then Hard Drive or IDE-0 second if you want to boot from the cd-drive. Many computer manufacturers set the computer to automatically boot off of the hard drive by default so setting the factory defaults might not be what you are looking for. Look for the screen that has the boot order or sequence and just change it, exit and save settings and restart the computer with the boot cd in the drive. I hope that helps.

I took the old harddrive with windows xp and put it in a new computer with new motherboard and cpu. Then I started it up and of course would not work, so I booted from the XP CD and started the "repair windows" option. For 20mins windows repaired itself, then asked for the Product key! Then I realised I have no idea what I did with the old papers that came with the old computer. I learned about the magic jelly bean program that retrives windows product keys, but I cant get back to windows.

So.....my question is, Is there a way to abort the windows installation? If I could get back to windows I could figure out the Product key. When I turn on the computer it just goes to the installation section where it asks for the product key. Thanks in advance!

Hi there ,


I have been using Microsoft office home and student 2007 .I was recently prompted to re-enter the product key . I have long lost the key and I am hoping I wont have to pay out again for a product whichI already purchased once before . I have tried programs like rockxp and magical jelly bean ,but these programs do not register officeas being installed . I have tried various keys which I have found online . These get me past the first screen which asks for the product key but then the next screen asks meto register onlineor by phone and so far all these keys have failed at this point . Please help if you have any ideas , anything other than giving bill gates more of my hard earned money lol .
 

Answer:Lost product key for a genuine product (office home and student 2007)

If you did not reinstall it, the key should still be in there I am surprised that Magical or RockXP did not find them. I am forced to suggest other programs that specifically mention Office in their description, for example:

http://majorgeeks.com/Jalapeno_Keyfinder_d5253.html
http://majorgeeks.com/WinGuggle_d5887.html

Otherwise I would go the route you are looking for a key. Since you own it and its not going to be supported, you dont have much choice.

I hope the above 2 you have not tried and work. Let us know!

I picked up this lenovo laptop and shortly after I got it the HDD went out. I replaced the HDD and Installed a full version of Windows XP SP2 then used the Win 7 upgrade disc I bought. I did a clean install of the Win 7 then I activated it at that time without any issues. Some time after that I started getting the message it wasn't a genuine copy. I rearmed the time period but I'm not able to activate the copy again with the PID. I get the message this product is for upgrade and not a clean install. I need to find out if I will be able to register this copy or if I will need to start over from scratch. I did try putting in another PID but it didn't activate with it. I haven't been able to change the PID back due to the message I am getting about the upgrade not clean install.

I recently purchased a Precision M6800 (probably one of the last ) and now want to add an external slice-type battery. I did some searches on DELL web sites (my local Belgium one and some international ones) and on the www. This resulted in several product codes for what seem to be the same, or at least similar products: 451-11831 / 451-BBGJ / 312-1351. Can anyone tell me if those are all the same, or at least compatible products ? And more importantly: is any of those (or all 3) really the slice-type battery I am looking for to attach to the docking connector of my M6800 ?

My young nephew had MS XP PROFESSIONAL on a computer that he bought second hand.Unfortunately it developed a problem and he formatted his drive thinking this would clear the problem.It was only after he formatted the drive that he realised he did not have a copy of XP Pro or any product key so he was left without an operating system The only thing he had was a copy of Windows 98 which he is now using Is there any way he can retrieve the product key after a format? Will Magic Jelly Bean or another program retrieve the product key? Or is the solution that he will have to buy another version of Windows XP Any advice would be most welcome as he hasn?t got much money to play withMany thanks Ray

Answer:Finding product key after a format xp pro

Off to the shops, I'm afraid.Unless, the PC has a separate 'restore to factory settings' partition and he can start over (again) with that.

Question: pendrive's

HI,I was reading an article the other day about a chap who had spybot and other spyware software on his usb pendrive,and not on his pc i was wondering if it wasn't installed on any pc how was he running the spybot etc, on any machine to check for errors spyware without it being installed on the pc it was just on his pendrive.Puzzles me or is it me? help.Thanks daiol.

Answer:pendrive's

I think he probably had the installer executables on the pen drive. Then he could go to any PC with a USB port and install the program without having to download (especially if the internet connection wasn't working).I've done a similar thing with a collection of anti-malware and diagnostic programs burned to a CD.

Question: PENDRIVE

is there a pen drive which supports  - LenovoYoga 3 Pro - 1370 i need to use it as like microsoft surface tablets pens.

Answer:PENDRIVE

Hi achussaini,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
If you are looking for a working pen for your Yoga 3 Pro, then this discussion here.
It uses multipoint capacitive touch technology and not with the pressure sensitivity offered with active type pens.
 
Other pen choices that works fine with others are also discussed here.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

I have a P4 computer but its RAM is just 256 MB. If anyone knows any method to use a pendrive as a RAM, please tell it to me. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Using Pendrive as a RAM on XP

This is not recommended, not practical, and I don't think it's possible. USB Storage Devices store memory as Flash memory, which is different than the type of memory used in your RAM. They are accessed differently and have different characteristics.The main difference is that the Flash Drive retains its memory when the power is turned off, whereas the RAM is completely erased when you turn off the power.Also, if you manage to get the USB Drive working as RAM, it would be like driving a car without circular wheels. It is just too slow to be used as RAM.Can you not purchase any more RAM? It doesn't come too expensive.

dear

i want to play movies on my LG lcd TV through Pen Drive.

plz guide me or give me software for that

thanking u

Answer:use pendrive on lcd

Hi,

Have you checked your tv manufacturer's website to see if your tv can play movies from just a usb flash drive as most lcd tv's don't do that if this is what you mean. The usb slot on a TV is there mainly for updates for itself, although having said that there is a few that will let you play a slideshow of pictures from it.

Have a look online at LG's website typing in your tv's make model/serial number, it will definitely tell you.

Steve

hi i have a 4gb usb pendrive ,i want to keep all my photoes on,(about 2.5gb ) in total i have loaded all of them from my h/d onto the pendrive,but i can only view 1 gb,all the otherscome up with an error saying that i can not open them because the are in a(pcd file extension) it alos give me the oppertunity to rename them but that dose not work, i am sure they were all in "jpg" on my h/d ,so i cant figure out whtas going on.in total i have 84 folders in jpg format on my h/d,on the pendrive i have 84 folders, i can only read 22 in jpg all the rest are in (pcd).i hope someone on here can understand what im saying many thanks for reading this

Answer:4gb usb pendrive only using 1gb ?

this is a blind guess but it could be the 84 folders some equipment does not like too many folders. Could you start again but nest the folders inside other folders so that the drive sees a smaller no.

Dear Friends
This issue may be repeated, and may occur to any of us
I have a USB flash drive, of 8GB
it worked fine for months,
but unfortunately, it is not working any more!
If inserted, the computer recognizes it as a flash drive, and places it in the "Safely Remove Hardware",
but if we tried to open it, it says "Insert disk in drive..."
I saw it's properties it says: Rmovable disk>>> Size 0MB !!!
where the media gone?
I tried to format it says "no disk in drive..."
I tried to fix using HP recovery, and other utilities, but it insists on, "No disk in drive"

Is there is something to do?
Please help...
 

Answer:USB pendrive 8GB=0MB

This can happen when the drive is not removed properly.
Plug in the drive,then go to "my computer".
Right click the drive and click eject.
Remove the drive and restart the computer.
Try the drive again.
