I have a Lexar 4 GB flash drive that I have had to jiggle in the USB port to get it to read. It has been progressively getting worse. Today it stopped working all together. The red light that indicates data transfer is not working but a red triangle appears intermittently. Sometimes the computer detects an external drive but can never connect. Do you have any idea what the problem could be and how could I fix it?
Solutions I have tried:
- Checked on 3 different PC computers but was not recognized.
- Took outer plastic casing off to see if metal contacts were broken. They didn't seem to be.
- Tried to blow on it to get dust out (realize that this may have made if worse in hindsight).
- Squeezed it while in USB port.
Please help me! I have files that I need a.s.a.p. Also, I know that I should have have backed it up.
