USB Is Damage

Is it USB data storage. I think your usb is damage. you should buy new one. i have bought 2 online they only work one time. when i have deleted data and try to copy new data it did not work. take a long time and final system say to me USB not recognized.

1. Open Device Manager.
2. Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers branch.
3. Double-click the USB Root Hub device, and click the Power Management tab. (if there’s more than one USB Root Hub device, repeat these steps for each one.)
4. Turn off the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power option, and click OK button.

Just last month, that happened to me.

The USB cable turned out to be a factor. Changed cables and it worked again. Cut old cable in 5 pieces and put into the recycle bin. Hope it's that.

Be sure to test your device on another PC but that worked here so next try was a cable.

Not with me

I tried it on other computers, it works. Maybe there are some settings in Window 10 who restrict my usb or some thing like that.

At the office we are almost all W10 now

The stock settings just work.

As I only have the story above I shared something that happened recently. It did work on other PCs but I know about cables so that's what I changed and that worked.

-> To go any further, let's get more details.
