Hopefully some one here can help me with a weird problem that I am having with my brand new flash drive.
Machine and Drive Details:
Laptop: Dell Latitude E6330
O.S: Windows 8.1, 64 Bits
SanDisk Product: San Disk Extreme 64GB Flash Drive
Problem: Windows recognizes and detects my flash drive fine but it won’t detect it anymore after safately removing it and re-inserting it. I have to fully restart my computer (with the flash drive in) in order for Windows to recognize the flash drive again.
Error Messages: None, no error messages, it simply won’t detect it, it looks like the power from the USB Port goes “down” after safetely removing the flash drive.
What I had tried:
1: I tried my SanDisk Extreme with another USB port that is located at the back of my laptop (the same laptop) and it works fine, no problem at all.
2: I tried my SanDisk Extreme with other laptops and it works fine too.
3: I tried with a different (brand) flash drive and it works just fine on the same laptop and same USB Port.
What could be wrong?
