I have a new laptop (about one week old) operating on Windows 7 Professional, and it doesn't recongnize a flash drive I'm using. It's a 2.0 USB flash drive loaded with copywrited material that cannot be copied to another source and cannot be deleted. I know that it works, because I've opened it on three other devices, one running on Windows XP and two others running on Windows 7. I also know that the USB ports are working on my new laptop, because I've used other flash drives on the device without any issues.
The flash drive will appear in my Devices and Printers a few minutes after plugging it in and then it will appear in my Computer, but when I try to view the files in either location the computer doesn't see any of the files on the drive.
Is this a problem with a security setting or blocking of certain file types?
