  1. I am hopping someone can help me with this problem. I am currently running XP Media Edition and evreytime I plug in my flash drive or IPOD I am unable to use them. They appear in device manager with no errors or problems, but they do not appear anywhere else. Most specifically they do not appear in My Computer or ITunes (for the Ipod).
    If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thanks in advance...

    I tried that, but it didn't work. I could view the files while in the disk managment, but still could not find it on windows explorer, my computer, or anywhere else.

    go to computer management, disk management, and assign the device a letter. If you have U3 technology on the drive. Delete those files.

    By assigning the ipod a drive letter, i was able to get itunes to detect it. But I still could not get anything else to see it. Still nothing for the flash drive.
