USB Drive Problem

By Morrisio

  1. I have a Sony USB 4GB flash drive. Windows XP SP2 recognizes this drive as "Generic USB Flash Drive" and it is displayed in Windows explorer as E:\drive, But When I try to access this drive it says "Please insert a disk/ media". It does the same on other PC's. I have done every tricks I know of to no avail.
    Help me please

    That a jump drive (the type you were around neck)? Or those SD 4GB?

    I think he means a jump drive. A "Sony USB 4GB flash drive." ;)

    How recently did you buy it? Is it under warranty, or can you RMA it?

    Some Jump Drive work and some don't . Pickup an LG 2GB once and it didn't work all the time.

    PNY and Memorex Travel Drive works perfect and I would recommend those. Scandisk also works too. PNY is cheaper than the other two. You can get 1GB, 2G, 4GB, I think they have 8GB out also?
