After months of hiding, I finally surfaced from my cave and decided to post here.

HELP!

my USB thumb drive was dropped recently. it was a power outage, but the drive was not connected, and i couldn't see. my hand slid across the computer desk and "thwack" USB drive dropped to the floor. Poor drive T.T

the next day i decided to test the drive for damage.
i connected it to my desktop, note that none of my USB ports are defective, Nokia phone and printer can connect thru them. Nada. no response. not even detected.

i tried to lurk the whole internet for answers, but still, none.

i tried connecting it to 2 laptops, still no response.

i tried data recovery from Datadoctor, but it says
'Datadoctor Pen Drive Recovery can not detect a USB drive connected to your computer. please reconnect, and click 'Retry'.

i retried, and still, no response.

Additional Info: the drive is a generic 'CD-R King' 2gb portable thumb drive bought last March of 2007.

so anyone out there, i have only a word for you

HELP!

thankfully yours,
J. D. aka Sock Monster

Hi J.D. and welcome to BleepingComputer.

I hate to say it but it sounds like you flash drive has bit the dust.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

You will have to take that up with the place where you purchased it. Dropping the flash drive I suspect isn't covered under your warranty.
