Let me first state, there isn’t any important data on my device, it just doesn’t function at all.
If anyone would be kind to help me with the following issue(s):
My stick has become unresponsive after trying to “write” an img. file to it, using rufus I believe. To create a bootable USB drive. After a succesfull attempt I can’t access the drive at all, have tried various different running systems with known working usb ports. Tried on windows (7, XP) as well as Mac.
When I plug the device in, my windows machine (7) acknowledges a new usb device plugged in (sound) but doesn’t do much more then that, except it very briefly show a cd drive or sometimes a regular drive in “My computer”. It immediately dissappears. On one (rare) occasion I got the following notification:
This tells me at least something is still alive, but very much corrupted or something… I think the filesystem has an error. I don’t know much more to say about it. The light does come on, sometimes stays on. In disk management it will also briefly show. Obviously it won’t boot what I intended to achieve. I have opened it, circuit seemed to be in good shape, no signs of hardware failure.
Ask me anything you need to know what I might have forgotten. Help would be appreciated.
