Issue #1 - USB Power --- Our DataStick flash drive requires powered USB ports. Most keyboards and USB hubs operate from power supplied by the USB ports to which they are connected; this may not leave enough power for the DataStick flash drive to operate properly. Avoid connecting it to any USB port in your keyboard, and any non-powered external USB Hub. Connecting the DataStick flash drive to a powered USB port on the computer should allow it to power up properly. Occasionally, the front USB ports on some new computers are unpowered. If so, connecting instead to the ports on the back of the computer will usually solve the issue.

Issue #2 - Drive Letter Conflict - Windows may occasionally assign the same drive letter for two different storage volumes; this is especially common on computers using Networked drives. To resolve...

  2. Click Start and type compmgmt.msc into the search field, and click on compmgmt to open.
  3. Click the + box next to Other Devices.
  4. Double-click the drive (usually listed as USB Mass Storage, but may be listed under another name).
  5. A new window will open showing properties; click the Reinstall Driver button.
  6. This will open the Update Driver software wizard, click 'Locate and install driver software (recommended)'. Then click 'Browse my computer for driver software'. Click Browse.
  7. Open the Windows folder on the C: drive (Computer > C: > Windows) and click OK.
  8. Make sure the 'Include subfolders' box is checked.
  9. Click Next. This should load the drivers.

    Right-click on Computer and choose Manage.

  2. Double-click on the Device Manager.

  5. Click Start / Windows button in the bottom left corner of the screen

  6. In the Search field, type C:windowssystem32driverstor and press Enter.

    • If Windows cannot locate the 'C:WindowsSystem32DriverStor' folder, it may be in a different folder depending on your version of Windows. In some versions of Windows, the location may be either 'C:WindowsSystem32DriverStore' or 'C:Windowsinf'.

  7. Delete the file INFCACHE.1.

  8. If you get an error when trying to delete this file, try the following steps:

    1. Right-click on INFCACHE.1.

    2. Select Properties.

    3. Click the Security tab.

    4. Click the Edit button.

    5. Select (Users xxxx-PCUsers) or something like (Users 7xxxx Users)

    6. Under the 'Permissions for users' check, mark everything to 'Allow All'.

    7. Click Apply then OK.
      If you receive a Windows Security box click Yes, then OK, then OK again.

    8. Right-click on INFCACHE.1 file and choose Delete.

    9. Reboot and reconnect the drive. The file should be rebuilt, correcting the problem.

    10. If that fails, you will need to try to reload the USB drivers for the operating system by inserting your Windows 7 install CD, rebooting, and attempting a Repair/Restore.
      WARNING: This can be dangerous to your data and you should disconnect your external drive before attempting this.
