Can't Open USB Flash disk [Solved/Closed]

PiNK_BuNNy - Latest answer on May 16, 2013 07:29PM
Hello,
I got a problem, when i plug my USB flash disk, it says "USB Devire Not recognized", it does apply to all USB flash disk, but i can use the port normally for my USB mouse or connecting my phone through USB port.. I can open my USB flash disk on another computer, so it's not the problem from the device. This problem is started when i plug one of my flashdisk to my computer, but when i scan that flashdisk on another computer, there are no threat like virus or another script.. I've already tried to install the newest USB driver 2.0, but it's still "Not recognized".. Please help me, i got a dead end here..
Thx!

Right-click on My Computer and choose Manage
Click on Disk Management
Right-click on your Thumbdrive and select "Change drive letter and paths"

Give it another drive letter and see if it sorts itself :-)

Worked for me (in XP) - in 'Manage', chose Storage --> Removable Storage to find Disk Management. Right clicked on the drive to find 'Change drive letter and paths'.
