With the drive plugged in, go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, on the left, Disk Management and activate the drive.
I purchased two 2gb USB flash memory sticks and plugged them into my computer and heared the ********* sounds and got the little window saying that a new device as been connected etc. In short the computer recognizes that theres a USB flash disk connected (even checked in the hardware list) but it doesn't asign it a drive letter so I can actually use it and copy files onto it etc. This computer runs on WIN XP PRO SP2
I plugged the stick an older comp running on Win 98 and installed the driver for it and it works fine and then i plugged it into my laptop which runs on Win XP SP2 and everything worked perfectly fine. So it's not the stick but the computer. Any ideas??
