Pen Drive Broken

By Dalmo

  1. I have USB ports at the front of my computer and I guess they're not working properly. I've tried to configure them and plugged a pen drive for testing, but it did not recognise. For my surprise, the pen drive is not recognised in any other computer. I tried another pen drive, and the same thing happened again. The two pen drives are not working now. Does anyone know if a pen drive is repairable? How these USB ports brake the pen drives?

    it's probable that the internal headers for the usb ports are hooked up wrong, look into that. and you should know that pen drives can be wiped out by a static shock (among other things) and once they break they cannot be repaired.

    Do those USB ports work for other peripherals, and do they continue to work ?

    I haven't tried any other peripherals because I lost two pen drives, so.... But thanks a lot. I'm gonna check USB ports connections again!!
