of my flash drives and did this.
right click my computer
select disk management
if the drive is listed right click and select(if I remember right) Initiate, and then you may have to format it also.
I have Windows XP Professional with all the latest upgrades. My problem is that when I put my USB Flash drives into the USB drives, my computer does not read them. I can go to Control Panel and then to Portable Media Devices and I can see the flash drives, but when I go to "My Computer" I cannot see the drive. I have several computers and sometimes I need to move date around but I cannot do so at this time. Any suggestions?
