Hi, I am asking for help because I attached my 1GB Star Trek Flash Drive (Black Wristband) to my computer and I was working fine but then when I disconnected it to use it on another computer I would not recognized the device. I tried to reinstall the driver but to no avail and I did an update still with no luck. I also tried it on other computers and still would not read the flash drive. My system is Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 Version 2002 with SP3 Toshiba Portege Mobile Intel ® Pentium ® III CPU-M 1333 MHz 1.33 GHz 752 mb of RAM. Is there a way that I can get the files back or at least get the computer to recognize the flash drive long enough to access the files to transfer them to the computer hard drive so I could copy them to another flash drive stick. :huh: I did not to a back up for the flash drive stick :thumbsup:
Please help

Does the device have any light on it indicating that it is getting power or that the drive is being accessed?

In the beginning there was the command line.

You may have a bad drive
You might try spritzing the USB connector on the drive with a little compressed air in case it has some dirt or something inside it
In the beginning there was the command line.
