I have a Dell 1525 Inspiron  with a T9300 2,5 GHZ processor, 3GiGs of ram, 500GB HDD, Win 7 OS.

 

Some usb sticks wont show up in the computer with all the other drives, some others do. The

ones that don't showup are :32GB sandisk cruiser and 4GB sandisk blade. They do show up under

Devices but I I cant look at the files in them there.

 

I ran the hardware trouble shooter but no cigar.

 

Thanks for your help

Dan

Please enter

 

sfc /scannow

 

from the command prompt and press enter.

 

Does the problem persist?

With the flash drive that is not detected in Computer attached to a USB port, look in Disk Management. Does it have a letter assigned to it? If not, assign a letter and it should show in Computer.

I should clarify. Right click Computer > Manage > DIsk Management. With the not recognized drive attached, look for the USB flash drive in the list. You may have to scroll down. It's possible a drive letter is not assigned to the flash drive in Disk Management. If you do not see a drive letter right click on the Disk and give it a letter.

Assigning the drive letter fixed the problem. It shows up in the computer now.

 

Thank you very much for your help.
