Question about Lexar FireFly 2GB USB 2.0 JumpDrive

6 Answers

I pulled my 2 GB JD lexar firefly out without ejecting, and it says that all my files for school (including a massive AutoCAD final project) are gone, but the amount of space they take up still shows when i right click on the drive and choose "properties." Is there anything I can do to recover the data or do I need to re-do my final project in the week that's left before it's due?

You can recover the data by steps blow
1. Do not save any new file to memory card.
2. Connect your card to computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download data recovery software, recommended one is asoftech data recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)

4. Install and open asoftech data recovery program, select your memory drive, and click 'Next' button to start scanning process which will find your data.

Yes,you can easily recover data by using a data recovery program.
Try this one called Tenorshare Data Recovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data.

That's why one is always asked to remove its drive with the "Safety Remove Hardware" tool. So, I hope you can learn a lesson to remove all your drive safely after experiencing this trouble.
But, now, in order to get back your lost data, you can try a drive data recovery freeware that has ever successfully retrieved all the inaccessible data of my friend off from his formatted WD drive. It is really worth trying.
Try to download it here:

Note: Before the data recovery process, you'd better not save anything else on this drive in case that any new file will rewrite your original files.
After the data recovery process, you also do not save the restored data on the same drive in case of data recovery failure.

Hi,

Your description of your present situation seems to be promising. If so, you can try a couple of free data recovery softwares that you can download off from the internet. (1) EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition, or (2) Recuva. Though these programs does not promise full data recovery, it is capable of showing you what can be recovered and what cannot be. Assuming that your files are still intact even from what those files went through, this way, you may have a chance to retrieve your files. Both are user friendly and has an online help.


I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!

Hi brymbyl,

You can try running scandisk on the said drive so that Windows will try to recover the data. You can do it by going to Computer window, right click the jumpdrive icon, click properties, click tools tab, click now then tick the check box for "automatically fix file system errors"

I hope this will help you.

Regards,
Ben

I have a lexar 2gb jd firefly usb drive and i dont know hoe to install the driver for it. Please help me!


You don't need to install any drivers for it, windows should detect new hardware and install the drivers that it already has for it. If your system isn't detecting new hardware when your plugging it in, then you might have an issue with your USB ports on your motherboard. If thats the case then go ahead and try hooking up like a USB keyboard or USB mouse. If it recognizes those then you know your ports are fine.

If your ports are fine and your USB firefly drive isn't being recognized, then your USB firefly drive is bad.

Got old toshiba laptop to use as portable graphic runs windows98


Your old Toshiba laptop most likely does not have a firefly port.
The only way to use your firefly device on the Toshibe is to purchase a firefly PCMCIA adapter card and plug it into the Toshiba's PCMCIA slot and install the card driver.
Please click on this link for details and prices for this adapter :-

I deleted all the viewable files and folders on my lexar firefly jumpdrive, but it says that i still have almost all my memory used up. how can I clear it?


You may have hidden or locked files. If the files are locked, you'll see an icon to unlock them when you open the JumpDrive in Windows Explorer. If the files are hidden, try and show them: Tools-->Folder Options-->View--> Left Click "show hidden files and folders" Good Luck!

Open Wordpad, click File-->Save As; type in your desired name for the file and click the pull down arrow near "Save in:". Select the appropriate Drive (G/D,E or whatever) that is your Firefly. Click save. The file should now be saved as a Rich Text Formatted document on your Firefly. You can save it as a Text Document as well under the "Save as type:" option. Good Luck!
