USB Drive shows up in Device manager, not in explorer
Posted on 2006-05-01
I have a pretty standard USB flash drive, 1GB, that when plugged into a WinXP PC will show up in Device manager and Disk Management, but will not "mount" to My Computer. The drive works perfectly in other machines, and other drives do not work in this PC.
What I have tried:
creating a new partition on the drive, and letting windows create the new partition.
Uninstall and reinstall all the USB controller drivers.
I have already searched the daylights out of this site.
I realize I am probably looking at reload city, just wondering if anyone had anything clever. Full points to the right solution. I'll split 2 ways for suggestions.
