USB flash memory stick

By muchenjeri ·
I'm using Vista Home Premium on a Dell. Suddenly, my computer cannot open my flash memory sticks - they open well on other XP computers. Also, I have a mouse that I plug on one of the USB ports and its working well.
I tried updating drivers, and all mention they are up to date.

Undocumented Features of Vista new Security.

The bottom line is that Vista computers don't like to share things and they throw temper tantrums when forced to. You may find a workaround listed on the Windows Vista Community here


But I'm not sure if M$ currently has a solution available though they are currently working on a Service Pack that is due for release within the next 6 months or so.
