When I plug my flash drive into any USB port on either of my Pcs, Windows (XP) Beeps acknowledging its arrival & an extra drive appears in my computer. However if I try & use the dive I get the message 'please insert a disk in drive X' It has at one time recognized it a a usb mass storage device, but where ever / however I try & look in it I get the same message. Prior to yesterday it worked OK. Has it failed, or is there something I can do? A different drive also works fine.
I've had drives as you describe, but this isn't one. Previously I've written data to it, it has just stooped working. I suppose a more accurate title for the thread is 'can my flash drive be repaired, & how?
As I said, a previous 'drive' had this facility. Not so with this. Only when I've tried to format have I had this message. Normaly it was just plug & play, write / delete stuff at will. It's not so old & only 1gb - cost £9 at a computer fair. I'll just have to bear the loss & not buy an Avixc again!
