I am using windows XP sp3 and my Pc cannot detect the USB drive. when I connect the USB drive to my PC it flickers for three to four times and then goes off. I am using Sandisk Cruzer Micro USB Flash drive. My friend Installed avast anti virus in the USB drive and it contains some jpeg images and word files.

This worked to fix the problem. Windows XP3 apparently cannot resolve a conflict in drive letter assignments on its own. It wanted to assign Drive E to my USB drive, but it had previously assigned Drive E to a network drive. The above approach from Navjot kang allows you to manually assign a non-conflicting drive letter.
it worked thanks!
