I have been using my 32GB Glide as a portable, bootable linux drive for a while now, and today, it suddenly stopped working. I did nothing I didn’t normally do, and I was very careful about bumping it. However, for some reason, it stopped working. I thought that it may have just been that one computer, so I plugged it into another one that I had used it on before. No luck there, either. I checked GParted on another Linux computer I have and Disk Utility on a Mac, and neither knew that I had even plugged anything in. I really need to fix the drive. Is there any way to fix it without spending any money to send it to a repair shop. I am prepared to re-solder bits, if necessary, if I can get beyond the outer shell, which I have no idea how to do. Another possibility that also just ran through my mind is that the drive may be fried, and if it is, how can I tell?
This could possibly be a hardware issue. Have you checked with your reseller and see if you can avail with a replacement? <img src=“https://imagicon.info/cat/5-43/1.gif”/>

If so it won’t be readable in other Windows machines, or Linux machines or Macs.
That’s the bad news. The good news is it may be replacable for free if it’s still under warrantee.
By the way jlarsson13, were you able to get this replaced already?
