USB pen drive detected but doesn’t show up in My Computer

Trouble:

You may have faced a problem when you insert your pen drive and it gets detected very easily but it doesn’t show up as a drive icon in My Computer. The computer detects the pen drive but data on pen drive is not visible as the pen drive is not visible in My Computer (Explorer).

This problem occurs mainly when windows XP fails to allocate a drive letter to your portable drive(pen drive). It occurs mostly with new pen drives connected to your computer for the first time. If you face such problem then it may not be the pen drive’s fault, rather it may be windows trouble.

Fix:

You can fix this issue by following some simple steps given below.

1. Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.

2. In the console tree, click Disk Management. The Disk Management window will appear.

3. On this disk management window, you can see some drives including the portable drive. Right click on your portable drive and click change drive letter and paths.

4. Now a assign a new drive letter which is not being used by any of your drives in My Computer.

5. After assigning the new drive letter your portable drive will show up in my computer with other drives

We hope the above solution will help to fix this trouble.

  1. This still has NOT solved my similar problem. The drive does not appear in ‘My Computer’ but i can go into the drive using ‘cmd’ and see the contents as well. I can see the drive in Disk Management and also did change the drive letter but still not seen in My Computer. I started having this problem after I hibernated and then removed the pen drive while it was hibernating. Any clues? Xp with latest updates.

    pls guide me .

  3. Dear Friend, Did you check your pen drive’s format. Is it NTFS or FAT. Try to keep the same format as your operating system. If nothing seems to be working go to Disk management by right clicking my computer and going into manage then select your pen drive and right click to go into explorer mode. Work as it is. That is what windows means.

  4. Great: I assigned my usual pendrive letter to something else. And I was unable to see the drive.
    Now after this its fine.

  5. Had the same problem. I changed the drive letter, but it still did not work. Then I tried removing the drive letter completely, unplugged USB drive, then plugged it back in, assigned it the default drive letter, and now I can see it in the “My Computer” folder. Weird.

  6. Hi,

    I just got a 64MB flash drive about a week ago.

    I had been using it through Windows and linux with no problems but today it started acting up. It doesn’t show up in linux or mac and in windows I get the error
    “The disk is drive F is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?”

    The first weird thing is that it’s shown as only 8MB. The second is that the format always fails.

    I have tried using Active Kill Disk to delete everything on the drive but that doesn’t seem to do anything.

    Nothing is working.. Anyone have any ideas? I’d like to get this thing working again.

    Regards

    @deepu

    this is exactly what happened to my friend’s pen drive. This happens due to a faulty computer’s usb port. a faulty port can apply over-voltage to the pen drive and the pen drive might have burned-out the internal circuit. try get is replaced in warranty, but they may deny to replace it.

  116. My drive was appearing in My Computer, but I couldn’t format it without getting an error that the volume name was invalid. I read everything here and settled on trying this solution first, even though it didn’t directly apply to my issue. When that didn’t work, I played around with the volume name and shortened it to 9 characters. It worked! The volume name I typed in was too long! Why doesn’t MS just make alerts like this simple. Tell me the volume name is too long NOT “Volume name is invalid” Ridiculous. Anyway, thanks for your help. This site is awesome!

    kindly reply……

  199. Hi,
    I wasted my sleep for the last 2 days thinking about the resolution posted on this forum, as I myself went through the same problem – and ultimately couple of mins back I just resolved it – I dont know whether the setps mentioned above resolves an issue because even Microsoft KB mentions the same. I followed a diff path – My pen drive was getting detected in device manager, I also tried out un installing the Root Hub ..nogo, so I planned to replace my user profile. I copied all my contents and replaced my user profile. & u wont believe it took 12 mins to get this issue fixed. I then went to MMC and Turn on the Auto Play option . now even all my usb are getting recognized.

  200. I can see lots of people suffering with the USB issue s, many thinking of formatting the PC or Drive, my small suggestion rather than formatting the drive – Please re create a new user profile, because most of these type of an issues get created due to corrupted User profiles. If any one need any suggestions you can mail me or leave a post here mentioning my name – and i’lll try to hunt a resolution for you – if my recent post helped you please leave a line so that I understand I am on the correct track.
    Thanks to you all.
    Happy Computing.

  206. Hi Suganya,
    Reply to your Issue,

    Before your try any troubleshooting , just try ur Pendrive on any other PC to check if it is getting recognize. If Yes – no need to worry Ur Pendrive is OK.
    Go to Start –>Run –>type DEVMGMT.MSC –> OK
    once your device manager open up , Scroll down locate + USB Serial Bus Controllers —> click on the Plus sign to expand.
    U’ll Find USB Mass Storage Device & USB Composite Device
    Give right click on the first one & select Uninstall agian
    Give right click on the second one click uninstall.

    Then remove if you have any usb storage devices attached on the PC & restart.
    Windows will automatically re install the 2 device drivers from its available CAB file.

    Then attach your Pen drive and check , and let me know, If it works.

    Till Then Happy Computing

    I have 32 gb pen drive and 1gb memory card, it is show but not format .
    please help me and give me suges……..

  219. Ok, so I’m trying to fix a 32GB Kingston Data Traveller 102. In Windows 7 it shows up in My Computer and in disk management, but in both it is listed with size 0. In disk management NO partitions are shown and when double clicking on the drive in My Computer, it asks you to insert a disk. When the drive is plugged in, it is recognised but says it must be formatted, and formatting by any means fails. In Ubuntu 11 it is not recognised as a device.

    Is there anything I can do with this?

  220. Just go to device manager (right click on manage and you will see it) u will see the brand name or anything like that right click on it and click uninstall.remove your pen drive and plug it into the port.Wait for windows to install the driver.Hope this will help you

  221. i have lot of data in pen drive ! after attaching pen drive it shows ” do you want to format now ?” wat should be done!
