Googled all day and no answer to my specific question. I have some software that requires the USB pen drive to be inserted for the software to work. The chinese I bought it from have some how made the drive INVISIBLE. I mean it does not show in MY COMPUTER, it does not show in DISK MANAGEMENT. Tried various CMD lines, tried various software INC TWEAKUI and others. No joy. As I say its a working drive as its needed to run my software. It seems the chinese are doing this often now as I have bought other items from china and all have these silly drives with the software you buy. I just want to be able to read whats on the drive so I can clone it in case it breaks on me in the future. Or better still copy whats on it onto my HDD so that the software works without the damn FLASH DRIVE. I hate to have to always have a pen drive sticking out my laptop.
