I am running Window XP and trying to used SandDisk 1gb flash memory in USB ports. they are not reconised in the PC at all. When I go into my computer the flash drive is not reconised. I have tried formatting the USB drives but they are still not shown. I have been on Sandisk website to see if there is an updated driver but there is not for the flash drive I have or XP.
I have been told to update the bios which is something I will do at a last resort.
I use a HP one 1gb that works in my 98se and all my XP computer okay. So its the computer that is the problem. Have you tried in Device Manager uninstall all usb starting right at the bottom of USB then restart computer and let windows reload all the USB it finds
Wrighty - did you solve this - I am going barmy with trying to get either of my USB flash drives (both perfectly happy in my laptop)to work in PC. File management shows both of them(one at a time, of course), but not My Computer, but despite several weeks of helpful advice from all quarters, I STILL cannot get either of them going. I'd happily buy a replacement, but I suspect that this is a computer thing, and not a hardware!
