USB Problem Solutions Apacer and Contour under Vista RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • After a log of struggles with an Apacer HT203  2.0 (2GB) and a Sandisk Contour 8.0 both with "Vista Compatibility" and both not working, I found these fixes (one was posted here already).


    With the Apacer it stopped being recognized by Vista, I think after using it with Ready Boost.  There is a utility available on the Apacer site that will do a "low level" format that will recover the disk.


    With the Contour, even Sandisk gave up.  This is what worked, posted by Eric:


    USB Drive Problems with Vista 




    1) Remove the update KB936824 and reboot.

    2) Install your USB key, it will detect properly. :-) Remove "safely" the USB key.

    3) Reinstall the update KB936824 with Windows Update and reboot.
