  1. Hi, I'm currently using Win Vista Business Ed. but since I change from XP to Vista, the computer won't recognize any flash disk. but the USB port for other funcion (e.g printer, mouse, webcam) worked fine. the window can't install the driver for the flash disk. It says "Driver is not intended for this platform"
    Please help me with this problem

    Format the flash drive in Vista. USB flash drives don't need drivers to operate correctly

    Um, the drive does not appear in my computer nor in the disk management, how to format it?
