So my friend borrows a jump drive of mine and when i get it back it won't show up on any computer at all. Like i didn't even put it in. Nothing happens, no detection whatsoever.

I've put jump drives through complete hell before and they still worked, what could the problem be? and how could i fix it? if i can fix it.

Thanks.

What kind of drive is it?

I've had a similar problem with a PNY and I ended up going to their site. They walked me through some stuff to try, and ended up blaming me for formatting it wrong. Even though I never formatted it at that point.

I have another el cheapo drive that I have to jiggle just right to get it to work on my PC, and some computers won't read it at all. It was bought off ebay from China.

Is there information on the drive? Try a different USB port? Try a different computer?

It's a 2gig Sandisk Cruzer.

Before i let my friend use it, it worked on everything, evern Xbox 360 when most others wouldnt.

I've tried it on about 5 different computers now and none of them read it.

Strange. Check this out from the Sandisk site. It explains what to do when the computer isn't recognizing the Cruzer drive.
