What Operating SYstem are you using? XP or Vista? An what service pack? (Check this by pressing the Windows key + the Paue/Break key together)

Firstly, if you are plugging the pen drive in to the front USB, try the USB ports at the back. Many times this works.

Secondly, It's a known problem that XP with SP1 doesn't detect many pen drives correctly.

If that's the case, download service Pack 3 from microsoft's site:

Scandisk micro syncs all 'My documents' with comp plugged into


open scandisk settings and disable that feature.
or else you can simply delete scandisk software and use your pen drive.
