    XP has drivers built in for USB flash drives, it comes up as "USB Mass Storage Device" when it installs it.

    Is this a new drive or is it old?

    My guess is it's DOA - send it back and have a new one :)

    If the problem is the same with each one, then you either had a huge coincidence of having 4 faulty drives, or you have a problem with your PC or Windows which is making the devices not recognize.

    Fair enough, mate, if that's your decision. However, you didn't answer my question as to whether this problem has only happened with this drive or all of the ones that you have owned.

    If it has happened with each drive then I don't think it's the drive that's faulty, especially if they're by different brands.
