Ok, I lost my mind trying to fix this for an hour or two, but I'm lost.
I have a brand new Sandisk Ultra Flair 3.0 128 GB USB for my Mac, reformatted soon after that I think it was exfat so I could move files to Windows if I wanted to. Everything was fine and working fine until I accidentally unplugged the USB from my Mac while executing a video file out of it. Now my Mac is no longer able to detect the USB, but my old crappy Windows laptop still can. I tried to format the USB as exFAT and fat32 using my Windows machine, but my Mac is still unable to read it … I've since tried practically everything I could find on google always with 0 luck.
Here are some facts:
- USB does not appear on Mac in system info, disk utility,
recovery mode, or when i place the order, i found to show the
active readers in Terminal … It seems to have become completely invisible. (I have
the Finder does not hide it)
- On my Mac, I tried
restart / stop of the machine, as well as reset of the VRAM
and the SMC.
- My Mac can still detect other USB storage devices when I
plug them in.
- USB still works fine on my Windows machine
It is a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13 inch, early 2015) running Mojave.
Are there wizards with a solution or some kind of idea / suggestion? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Clearly, the USB is still working, I have no idea how to recover my Mac to detect it …
