Why is my pen drive not detected by any PC?
Question by Arun Sekhar /
Ads by Google

I am using a Kingstons 4GB pen drive. When I connect it on any PC there is no action. Sometimes the power light of the pen drive blinks, but never shows an icon or any action on any PC.

I have tried it on every PC, but the pen drive is not detected. I have tried to find it by device manger, bur couldn’t get it. What else can I do?

    As the tip of my pendrive is shaky it was working when i lift and hold it. So I applied a little Quick fix glue at the tip as it was shaky and later totally it stopped working. My PC is not able o detect it at all. Any suggestions for this.

    There are a lot of counterfeit flash drives being sold in cut rate stores both physical and online.. Some have very cheap components while others are just empty cases. If the price was too good to be true, you probably got one.
