USB drive installed but not listed in

By chezjdd ·
Hello Guys,

Can any one help please? I have used a USB flash disk for a while and suddenly, i wasn't able to read data stored on it because it is not listed in "My Computer". It seems that it is full. How can i do to get it in the list of drives in "My Computer" in order to retreive my data on it. I am using Windows XP SP1 full patched. Thank you in advance.

First thing I would do is check device manager and see if it is listed, it will be listed under USB devices, and make sure no conflicts listed. Next I would try the flash drive on another computer to see if maybe the drive failed. You may also go to computer management, right click my computer and select manage, that brings up computer management window, then select disk management. See if the drive is listed there.

Also, do you have any other USB device connected to the computer? If so 1. do they work? 2. were they connected to the system before when you were able to read from the flash drive?
