Having some trouble with a Flash Drive. When I connect it to the computer. It says it has found and unknown device and then another window will say that the drive has malfunctioned and is unrecognized. I tried using Pandora to see if it could fine the drive, but it does not. Is there anyway for me to try and recover this data? Neither XP or Vista are recognizing it. I'm not really sure what to do. Any suggestions would be great!

I have a flash drive that I cannot see on my home computer but I CAN see it on just about every other computer.

Try it on some other computer.

Some of the better flash drives have warranties (Sandisk is 2 years). You might be able to return it.

I hope this helps.
