    How do you lnow it is your F: drive. The U3 drive will load 2 drive letters one appears as a CD drive and the other is the actual flash drive. Is it possible you are trying to access the wrong drive. Does it light up when you plug it in. Do you hear the Windows alert sound that indicates a device has been plugged in? More info please.

    My computer does not list the drive either. It shows the f:\ drive for u3 but not the actual drive. Just go to start button, choose run and type g:\ and see if it shows a documents folder. I bought one as a spare and didnt try to use it for a few months that ended up not working at all, but if you get the f: drive you should be able to access it. create a shortcut to g:\ for quick access

    Open System Properties, expand the tree view to access Disk Management.
    It should be listed there and the drive may be conflicting with another drive letter (mapped drive?). Right click the USB drive and change the drive letter to one un-assigned.
