I am new to this forum and have scoured all over it and the rest of the internet to find a solution but can’t find anything that works.
I have a couple Sandisk Ultra 32gb Ultra drives (Not the back up ones). They were working fine for the past year or so but recently I can’t get them to show the data on my Vista 64bit PC.
They show as a removable drive and when I click on them they show as empty. I look at the properties and both the used space and free space is 0.
In the device manager they are showing under Hard Drives. I have tried changing the letters of the drive (as well as removing the letter) and nothing seems to show the volume. I seemed to remember they used to show up under my USB controllers before so I am wondering if Vista now things it is a different kind of drive.
There are videos files on the drives and I have confirmed they work because I can still play the USB drives through my BluRay players USB port.
I uninstalled the drive then plugged it back in and Vista found it and then said it installed the driver correctly. There are no conflicts in the device manager when it is plugged in.
I have used other USB drives (thought the USB port was dead) and 3 other drives (2 other Sandisk and 1 Kingston) both plug in and work perfectly. It is only the Sandisk Ultra’s that I have the issue with. The other 2 Sandisk ones are not the Ultra’s.
I tried to copy files to the drive just to check if it was reading incorrect volume but it actually gets a message that the location of my source files is missing, which is strange because I can move the files to other drives or locations but it only errors when I try and put it on the Ultra with the 0 volume.
I am totally stumped. Hopefully someone can help out.
