I have a sandisk 8gb pen drive, which used to show up as a 'drive' in my computer. It no longer does, it now shows up as a 'folder'.
When I plug it in, I still get the dialogue box from windows (xp) asking if I want it to open files. When I click 'open' or 'yes' it tells me it can't access the pen drive, so I then need to dbl click 'my computer' and access the drive (folder) from there - which works.
Is the pen drive knackered, or is there a solution to this? I was toying with re-formatting it after moving the contents safely.
