Which Dell??? What OS?? But it's a Dell so it's flaky. But it shoud work most of the time. John
I have been trying to use the USB port on my Dell desktop with 2 different flash drives - one is a Comsol USB 2.0 256mb, the other a Kingston Datatraveler II.
Each use gets a message that the computer won't recognise the device, and there is a compatibility issue.
Dell has given us a fix which allowed the port to be used once, now we have the same problem.
Dell tell us that sometimes the port will accept these flash drives, and not other times - doesn't sound right to me.
