I have a 4gb PNY micro flashdrive and sometimes my IBM T43 recognizes it and sometimes hardware not installed. I am running windows XP. I let a friend of mine borrow it and this is how I recieved it back.

If your friend pulled it out before going through the proper disconnect process this could have damaged the files on the drive.

Have you tried this with another computer?

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

You might also try spritzing the connector with a little bit of compressed air in case there might be some dust inside it
In the beginning there was the command line.

your flash drive is most likely damaged. it'd probably be a good idea to back up whatever information is on it before it becomes completely unusable, and then try to get it replaced by the manufacturer.
