Hi :thumbsup:.

Well, always consider that the problem may be your onboard USB ports...they tend to go out without warning. So try all respective system USB ports, both with the drive and other USB devices.

The simple solution to many USB situations...is to just install a USB 2.0 PCI card, assuming there is a free slot available in the system.

Laptops are a different story :huh:.

Are you referring to the cable as being loose...the connector...the power cord...what? Exactly what is deemed to be loose?

What type of drive (manufacturer/model)?

Does the drive work properly on any other computer?

Every time that I have a USB drive not being detected that I have previously used on the system, its always been because the driver got corrupted or something similar. So I just go into Device Manager and unistall the device, then plug the device back in and all is well.

I am referring to a flash drive.It was found to be loose that was why it is not detected.There was no problem with usb ports my flash drive was inserted into.Is these something to do to correct a loose flash drive?
