Hello my friends,
I have a roughly 3 year old Kingston USB2.0 Flashdisk. It was my brothers, who used it for sometime, and now I am using it. On my home PC, a Pentium 4 Windows XP, it works just fine. However, on some of my college mates laptops, it is unable to be read. For example, on my friends Compaq Presario running on Windows 7 Premium, my thumbdrive cannot be read and it says something along the lines of, driver not detected or unable to install driver. In terms of malware or viruses, I am pretty sure its clean as I always scan it on my home PC with Nod32. What do I need to do in order to make my USB readable?

Thank you very much,
Aaron M

Make sure USB legacy is enabled in the BIOS, just to take that out as a potential culprit. If you don't see the option then don't worry about that. A second option would be get it on a working computer back up the DATA on it and reformat it and make sure its fat32 or ntfs if you want.
