Hi guys/gals,

A couple days ago I had a problem with my flash drive not connecting to my computer, I figured it out and I believe this is happening with other flash drives as well, check it out and let me know if this happened to you:

I've never had this issue, or have that much debris in my USB connectors.

I guess I'm lucky.

Assuming the USB is signaling properly, you likely have a bad flash module. Kingston is very easy to RMA parts, so I would just have it replaced under warranty.

Note: please don't post links to sales sites unless it directly attaches to the subject of discussion. Such links are better placed in the Buy and Sell category.

Have fun, be safe! Sláinte!
