  • Hi,

    Since Windows could recognize other flash drive, I suppose there is something wrong with the issued drive itself. We would like to suggest you follow the steps in the link below to fix it according to the error code.

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc725873%28v=ws.10%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

    In addition to that, updating the port driver and BIOS firmware version is necessary. Also, you could try to use Windows Troubleshooter to fix it. Please go to "Control Panel" > "Troubleshooting" > "Configure a device".

    If still doesn't work, you would better to contact the flash drive manufacturer for further support.

    Good luck to fix it.

    Best Regards,

    Simon
