Hello group, Hoping this is the correct forum for this problem. If not, please suggest where to post. Have 2 brand new NO NAME 8 Gig flash memory drives (USB2). Windows XP detects them as Sony devices when plugged in, but NO markings on devices as to brand or anything ( E-Bay items). Both units formatted FAT 32 and no option to change. No software came with them either and nothing loaded on them from factory. Can copy files to and from units no problem - until I unplug them. Once I plug them back into same computer or different one, Windows Explorer shows no files, although, properties shows the amount of data on the chip, as if the files are there, but just cannot be seen and therefore cannot be accessed. No hidden files settings I am aware of. Also tried using IOLO's Search and Recover 3. On basic scan, S&R3 reports no files on drive. Using Strong Scan seems to hang the program. Tried each flashdrive on 3 different computers with same results. This one has me baffled. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Dave J.
