Fixing SM3254AD memory bar, 4gb

I have a SM3254AD memory bar, that I can no longer access.  It shows up on my pc, but does not attach itself to a drive when inserted like my other USB sticks.  I came up once, but then now cannot get it to display the files loaded on it.  Is there a fix for this?.  When I troubleshoot, I get message that says driver is up to date.

Method 3:



Disable and re-enable all the USB controllers.



This lets the controllers recover the USB port from its unresponsive condition. The USB controllers represent the USB ports in Device Manager.



To disable and re-enable the USB controllers, follow these steps:



a.     Open Device Manager.


b.     Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.

You might have to scroll down the list to find this item.



c.     Right-click the first USB controller under Universal Serial Bus controllers, and then click Uninstall to remove it.

d.     Repeat the above step for each USB controller that is listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers.

e.     Restart the computer. After the computer starts, Windows will automatically scan for hardware changes and reinstall all the USB controllers that you uninstalled.




If you need any further assistance related with the Windows Operating System, please reply and we will be happy to help you.
