Hi my name is Anthony & i'm a newbie to bleepingcomputers, my Fiancée has a dell laptop with Vista, :huh: the problem is when she wants to transfer documents from a flash drive to her laptop vista will not show a drive in my computer, bu t if I go to device manager the flash drive is there. If however if she has photo's on the flash drive she can get them on to her laptop. I have tried plugging the flash drive in when online in the hope that would help to sort things out :huh:
Can someone help? I have XP myself, which is fantastic. Vista is very slow and bulky which is why I'll never upgrade to it.

(Moderator edit: moved post to more appropriate forum. jgweed)

That may be more a product of hardware than anything. I have Vista on two of my systems, and it works just great. :huh:

Does the drive show up in Windows explorer? Have the settings been altered on Vista so as to not auto-mount removable storage? When the device is plugged in, does a dialog box pop up asking what action to take? If not, then a setting may need to be changed is all.
