    check on the flash whether there is a switch. if there is change it to the other position

    What would be the point of a switch that disables the drive altogether? :p

    eduardo: May try reformatting the drive? Or do you need to get some files off there?

    i honestly have no idea why, but some drives do have it for unspecified "security" reasons, and if activated you cant access it
