I am facing a strange problem with my ‘Transcend Pen drive’ in these days. When I insert the pen drive in a USB port and then turn on (not restart) the PC, everything is going okay. The pen drive is working properly that time. But if I connected the pen drive with a computer which is already running (i.e. turn on the PC first then connect the pen drive), then computer couldn’t detect the pen drive (No autorun, No ‘safely remove hardware’ option even not shown in My computer) and the pen drive also doesn’t blinking light when it is inserted in USB.
Is the Pen Drive corrupted? Is there any solution?
Plz reply and forgive for my bad and boring English.

Try going into the Device Manager (Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Device Manager) and right click on the icon of the monitor at the top of the column and then click on Scan for hardware changes.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
