Flash Drive Memory pencil

  CDL 08:56 30 Jan 2003

Just bought a pencil flash drive - great gadget !Small,simple,effective. But I have a niggle with it! On other machines I just plug it in and straight away there it is in both windows explorer and My Computer. Not so with my machine - to get it recognised I have first to open windows explorer then plug, unplug and then plug back in again and then it appears in windows explorer but NOT in My computer ! From then on I can use it ok but I realy would like to see it first time in both locations. (The other systems that work it fine are of similar spec.) Any suggestions ?

What is your OS? It should be picked up via XP/ME/2k immediately.

If your USB is via a hub it may also have a bearing on the problem

What make/model of gadget. The DISGO one requires an awful lot of stuff done before it can be used easily.

I'm using XP pro ( I have no problems with another machine using same - the drive is recognised immidiately) The USB cable is direct from the pc and I've tried swapping it with the printer but no change.

It's aTinydisk 128mgb
