USB pen drive
 
I got a USB pen drive, but I don't know why sometimes it
works sometimes it doesn't work, and sometimes it works on
this computer but not the other. Normally, when you plug
the usb drive into the usb port, then it will
automatically appear inside the "My computer". But
sometimes it doesn't appear, so what should I do?

what operatings systems do each computer have? Pen drive is natively supported by Windows ME, 2K, XP. For Windows 98se you need to install a seperate drivers. It will not function at all with Windows NT4 or 95

It also depends on the drive letter the pen-drive choses to be mapped with. I have this problem at work where I must disconnect a specific network-drive for the pen-drive to function as it won't let you set which drive letter it will use.

one more thing that could be the problem, how many usb devices do you have on the systems that it doesn't work on? There could be a power problem on the bus.

Yes, externally powered USB hubs are your friend.

Oh, probably that's the case, I am using the windows XP, and I got a peer to peer network, then I mapped the drive to the other computer, I think that's similar to your case.

Hey, Thanks very much, I just try your method, first I disconnect the network drive, then I change the drive letter for those network drive. Then the pen drive appear again!!! Thx
