Why can not I see USB?
The reasons why the PC does not want to recognize the flash drive and work with it can be a lot. We list the variants that occur most often.
Causes of problems with USB
Cybernetic pests are able to derive frombuilding as separate elements of the structure of the computer (the same USB), and generally the entire system of the PC. So, in order to avoid this problem or to remove the existing one, scan the system with an antivirus (just choose a good one, from paid versions) and remove the detected parasites. By the way, do not forget to regularly scan and devices that you connect to a PC (phone, USB flash drive, MP3 player, external hard drive, etc.) - the information that is contained in them can easily steal the virus.
If everything is already too neglected or the virus is extremely ingenious, then you can return the PC to life by reinstalling the operating system.
Problems with flash drive
Flash drive - the device is fragile enough, andbecause it can easily be damaged by falling. In addition, the gadget may burn out or be simply of poor quality (in this case, you need to contact the seller with a request for a refund or replacement of goods). Finally, each flash drive has a period of work assigned to it by the plant. An old device can simply become unusable. In this case, it remains only to purchase a new product.
They are required in order for the USB ports to workin computer. These utilities can be "crooked" when installed, or after a while they can "fly off" for one reason or another. Of course, this does not happen very often, but if the problem does arise, just update the corresponding software.
To do this, go to the "Computer" folder, on anyarea of pure folder space, right click and select "Properties". In the opened window in the list on the left, select "Device Manager" and then "USB Controllers". To expand the list, click on the plus sign next to these words. Now insert your USB flash drive or any other device that you want to connect to the PC via the USB port. Watch the list - one of the positions may change or a new one may be added. You will need to click on it with the same right mouse button and select "Delete". We removed from the system an old, unusable driver. Now remove the device and reinsert it - the driver will automatically update. If the PC device does not see after that, the problem may lie in the reason that we described below.
Conflicting file systems
If the PC is represented by the NTFS file system, and the flash drive is FAT, there may be a "misunderstanding" between the devices. A computer may simply not recognize a device that is objectionable to it.
This problem can be fixed by formattingflash drives in the PC file system. You can do it with the help of special programs that allow you to see the device even when it is not received by the PC itself. Alternatively, it could be a utility called the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool. But first go to "My Computer" and right click on "Disk D". Select Properties, General. From there, you will learn which file system is installed on your computer.
Problem with USB port
This is also a common reason whyDo not see the USB of your precious PC. If at assembly of the computer negligent technicians have forgotten to fix the front panel of the system unit to the motherboard, then a flash drive or any other device (for example, a phone) connecting through the connector located on this same front panel will not be recognized. In addition, headphones connected to the audio output connector in the front of the system unit will not work.
With this problem you will need to contact the service center of the store where you bought the PC.
Also, the USB port may burn out. This often happens in stationary computers and laptops. The problem can arise for various reasons. For example, due to a sudden voltage drop or inaccurate handling of the port. This element can be replaced with a new one.
