  1. i have 2 different kind of flash drive that i plugged into several computer. Other computer works fine in recognizing the flash drive from the usb port. but this one computer that i have recognize that there is new hardware being plugged in but the drive does not appear (meaning no access to the documents i have in the flash drive). This happen for 2 flash drive that i have. With other computers they work fine. I have tried adding new hardware too but it failed. I am using win xp OS.

    What could the problem with the computer? please help me.
    THanks

    Can you see the flash drive in disk management. If you can see it, please assign a drive letter
