    me is a terrible OS and THE worst M$ ever came out with. IT's is very unstable.

    Get a copy of 98SE if you have an older computer or better yet, upgrade to XP and add memory to at least 512mb

    XP supports many flash drives.

    run your me setup disk and run a repair. The OS is corrupt. ME has a habit of corrupting itself a lot.
