Greetings, apologies if there is an existing thread answering this question but here goes. . . I have a Dell Latitude laptop and a new 8 GB Kingston flash drive. I run Windows XP SP2 and also Linux Fedora Core 6 on this machine. Normally I do not have problems with my flash drives in either system but recently this new Kingston drive is only recognized in the lower USB port, not in the upper port. This same thing happens on both operating systems, when plugged in to the upper port, the light on the drive blinks for a moment and then goes dark, it is never recognized at all, and there is no error message from the system. It is as if nothing were plugged in. Yet plugging in to the lower port works fine. Any bright ideas?
