A problem

Hello everybody. I have this problem for some time now, and I just can't wrap my head around it! I'm using Windows XP SP2, and the problem I'm having is that every time I insert any USB external memory, it appears normally in My Computer, but if I remove it (don't worry, I use Safely remove hardware) and put it in again - the disk doesn't show in My Computer and I cannot access it what every I do!! It's driving me nuts!!!! So, if anybody has any idea - your more that welcome!

It's likely that the flash drive became damaged. Can you read it from other computers?

Re: A problem

You checked for viruses?
try running mbam (free antivirus software). Sounds like you might be ratted
if not then its to do with the drivers.
Some windows updates played around with the drivers im told
to fix it remove usb drivers and reinstall.
another option might be turn on "wake with usb" or similar from bios, not sure what it does but might be the problem.
