A zombied USB
Well, my youngest son of 2 years pulled out my 4GB Transcend USB stick while I worked with a file from it. Now my old PC (USB 1.0) won't recognize it. Strangely the newer one does without any problems. I've tried to reformat the USB but there's no differences. Other USB's are working O.K. Is there any particle on the stick could be damaged, and now it cannot communicate with USB 1.0 port ?

Check the warranty on the manufacturer's website. They might replace it with a new one.
Corsair replaced my stick when it went dead, so I'll certainly buy from them again.oz

Moved to the hardware forum as I don't think it is a topic for the CL.How to know if you are a geek.

When it works with the new PC you actually read all the contents or only recognises the stick?
What versions are those PCs? Linux? 2.4 and 2.6?
Also, does the old PC really run USB 1.0 or 1.1? There is no much difference but usually older PCs run 1.1.
I got an old FreeBSD box that actually runs the real 1.0. When a Windows OS (don't know anymore which one was it) once broke the file systems, I reformated the stick on Windows as the file system on the stick was Windows FAT32 anyway. FreeBSD couldn't reformat it properly as it should.Bus Error: Passengers dumped. Hech gap yo'q.

Well, I have a PIII class PC with USB 1.0 port and another one, a PIV 64-bit class with USB 2.0. I've checked this stick with different OSs like Windows, Knoppix, Mandriva 2007, but I concluded that the problem is with the stick.
I've reformatted it with PartedMagic to fat16.
It works with USB 2.0 ports , and doesn't work with USB 1.0 ports. Formerly, it worked with both. I'll try to replace it, its still under warranty. I bought it some 4 weeks ago. But you know, things in Serbia aren't so fast and reliable.
For the future, I'll never buy a Transcend product again.
