Hi johnny_johnm
If your flash drive data is still getting corrupted After going to My Computer, Right click the Removable drive, Go to Properties >Tools. Run Error Checking and Scan for errors and fix them. The files that are corrupt or in bad sectors already will not work but at least the new transferred files should work.
scandrive5ze.jpg If all fails, format your drive. It will delete all the data from your USB drive and make it fresh and hopefully remove all errors. The software for formatting comes on the CD or available on support sites for your branded usb drive on the net. For some reason, when I ran this formatting software, it would say the USB drive is not connected.
How did I format my flash drive? Right click removable drive and select and format the drive. Then scan and fixes all errors. So all the bad sectors are fixed and my drive has become all new and is working well now.
formatdrive3ji.jpg In the File System drop down, you will see FAT and FAT32. So which one to select?
If you right click Removable Drive >Properties
driveprop2hf.jpg The General Properties of the USB drive reveals it is FAT, so I use FAT in the format utility. Then just select "Quick Format" and "Start" and all data will be deleted and hopefully all errors are now gone

The driver should be built into the OS. If you can't access the SSD from Windows Explorer, you may need to format the drive or it is a failed unit. If you have connected the drive to a SATA port on your motherboard, you should check if the drive shows up in your BIOS (assuming good cables and power). Next go to the Disk Management tool with an administrative user account. (Click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System > Administrative Tools. Then go to Computer Management and the Disk Management tool. Alternatively, choose the Command Prompt (under Accessories) with a right click and select Run As Administrator. Then type in diskmgmt.msc and press Enter.) Check if the drive is listed there. It will be disk 1, if you have the usual single hard drive. If it has unallocated space, you can format the drive and give it a letter name here.

If you don't have the drive listed here, try different power cables from your power supply and SATA cables. If it still doesn't respond, RMA the drive if it is under warranty.

I hope this helps.
