Flash drive undetected in any USB port

  1. I've had a Patriot - Dash flash drive for over a year now and all of a sudden it's not working. I plug it into the computer and it can't even detect it. I then tried my PS3 with no luck followed by an unsuccessful try with my DVD player's USB port. The blue LED light doesn't flash and no system will detect it. Just a few days ago I was enjoying movies on the thing, and apparently something happened.

    My question is, can this problem be fixed? Does my Dash have no hope?

    Thank you and apologies if this question has already been answered before.

    Not much hope there... go to the Patriot site and try their tools to recover it... but you may have damaged the drive if you have been carrying it around in your pocket. What you report makes it sound a bit hopeless.
    Try, and search for Patriot Flash Support, as well as Patriot Memory downloads...
    Sometimes their tools will help you recover the drive, but not what was on it.
