On my Desktop all Memorty sticks show as "F" Drive but are Unavailable. They work on a Laptop. Help appreciated.

Have you tried using any other USB port on your computer?

If you do this and they work, then your issue is likely to be a damaged USB port. However, if you plug your USB data stick into another port and it also doesn't work then your issue is more likely to be software based.

Thank you for your reply. I apologise for not replying sooner but Spring Cleaning has removed access to my Computer. (Don't ask) I have tried the usb stick everywhere without any luck then today I switched on and, lo and behold, every is working correctly.

Great that it's working, must've been some sort of software issue that's sorted itself out.
