Hello, Tom again. I have found an old flash drive of mine. I plugged it into my PC and it recognized it but it would not appear in My Computer(This PC for windows 8[only said that so people from windows 8 are familiarized with it]). It appears in Disk managment and 0 of it was used, it has no partitions or volumes or anything. It has a path, F, but when i go to it in windows explorer, it says it does not exist.

ooh, i have a signature

Some versions of Windows hide empty or non-active drives in Windows Explorer. Since you say you have a path - F:\ - to it try saving a file to that location and then see if shows up in Explorer.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
