USB Memory Sticks Commonly Encountered Problems:

USB Memory Sticks are comprised of the most delicate of hardware and firmware in a compact portable package that allows you, the user, to save your data and review it on the go. To this end for as much as the technology is useful and advantageous it can have its down sides as well. Commonly the reasons why USB sticks fail are varied and many and usually among them are damage to connections between USB and computer port, degradation of onboard components and disruption to the flash memory as a result of extreme heat, cold or even magnets. As a result of some of these you may find yourself in the unenviable position of not being able to retrieve valuable data. If this is the case we here at can help.

USB Memory Stick Adapter And/Or Port Failings:

Inside a USB stick is an EEPROM chip onto which your information is stored. This is what you will better know as Flash memory and can hold information in a variety of different formats and sizes. EEPROM chips are susceptible to damage if they are mistreated and as a result then end up unreadable. Problems can occur if the bonding wires and/or the resin holding them in place become damaged. This renders the USB stick unable to be read by the computer into which you have just inserted it. Using up to data sophisticated technology we at can help retrieve the data from USB sticks that are otherwise beyond repair or have some of these important components damaged.

USB Memory Stick Onboard Or Third Party Firmware Queries:

Just like a hard drive a USB stick needs firmware to help it operate in the way they are supposed to. Sometimes due to no reason than an upgrade in the technology used in the manufacture of computers, the USB stick firmware will become out of date or will corrupt. Reinstalling firmware to a USB stick is not impossible but is extremely difficult and requires some level of experience in order for the process to succeed. To this end we recommend you contact us if your USB stick firmware ceases to function correctly

USB Memory Stick Formatted Or Deleted In Error:

One of the most common problems we are presented with when it comes to reconstituting data from USB sticks is that of accidental deletion or formatting. We are none of us infallible and it can be done easily by clicking the wrong mouse button, reading a dialogue box on screen wrongly or simply being in a hurry. One the request to delete or format has been executed the chances of getting your data back through conventional means is slim. We however have over 15 years experience when it comes to retrieving data from wiped USB sticks

USB Memory Stick Causing PC, MAC, Or Other Device To Fail Upon Installation:

If you have inserted a USB memory stick into one of your computer’s USB ports and this has resulted in your computer’s freezing then you have a problem. Either the hardware within the USB stick – which is very intricate and also delicate – has developed a fault or there is an issue between your computer’s software and the USB stick’s firmware. To this end the continual rebooting of a computer to try and read such a USB stick will simply result in not only the degradation of the USB stick but your computer as well: if the problem occurs we recommend you remove the USB stick and do not use it on any computer without speaking to us first. If the data on the USB stick is important we will be able to help you recover it without further damage to your computer or the data on the USB stick.

Sandisk USB Stick Repair

I have a Kingston Datatraveller USB stick flash drive which I use to record large amounts of data on. It is a 64GB drive, and was not cheap, but I needed to record data for work which could not be handled in any other way. I decided to transfer a lot of my data to the stick, but half-way through the process, I got a message from the computer saying that it could not read the drive, and I needed to format it. I did this, and then started to load up the information again. This time it seemed successful, but when I put the stick back into the computer, it seemed like a lot of the files had disappeared, and I could no longer write or copy further data onto the drive. I decided to look at the stick on another computer, and this also told me that the drive needed to be formatted. The stick seems to work fine as long as there is no data on it, but once I put anything onto the stick, it becomes unreadable and the system wants it to be formatted. I need help with recovering the data which has already been loaded onto the stick.


I purchased a SanDisk Cruzer Blade not too long ago, as a backup USB memory stick for my computer. I plugged it into my Windows 7 PC, and immediately started to have problems with the system. Firstly, it will not recognise the system as a USB stick, instead, it takes over the Local Drive (C: drive) position, and won’t move, no matter how many times I go into Disk Management and change the letter. I tried to reformat the disk, as I wanted to use it with Linux. As it was intended to be bootable, having it on the local drive would not work, this means that I would not be able to manage any disk which sat on the local drive.

Sandisk USB Stick Repair

USB sticks have now become the staple when it comes to transporting information from one place to another quickly and compacting. In addition to this they are becoming one of the many ways in which companies across the United Kingdom send digital catalogues and brochures without incurring huge expenses.

There are a number of reasons as to why your Sandisk USB may fail; some of them are familiar to many of us simply because we may have left them in direct sunlight for overlong periods of time or even left them near to highly magnetic devices such as external hard drives that can corrupt the registry files that allow us to open the USB sticks on attaching them to computers.

Some even experience difficulties because of the way in which the USB sticks have been placed in the USB ports. Through general wear and tear or accidental damage the USB can become unusable as the pins inside are no longer aligned with the USB connector and fail to register on the host device.

To this end we are can help when it comes to recovering the data from your Sandisk USB stick.

With our experience in the recovery of information and data that would be otherwise lost we can help you get back that all important information without resorting to the use of third party software from the Internet which may make claims that are perhaps beyond their own abilities. This is not to say that they cannot reclaim some information but their chances of 100 per cent success are limited indeed.

You should be aware also that there are suggestions that problems caused by the loosening, or indeed loss of pins on the USB stick, can be cured by soldering them back into place. It is worth noting that although these claims sound plausible there have been very few recorded instances where such an exercise has proved fruitful.

With over a decade’s worth of experience to our name we here at can help you restructure the information from your damaged Sandisk USB stick without resorting to methods which might otherwise make reclaiming the data even harder if not impossible. Call us for more information.
