Optima Flash attached to this PC has malfunctioned and Windows can not recognize it
You may need USB drivers to recognize the USB drive, especially if it's an older copy of Windows. I would check with the manufacturer for drivers if that's the case. Maybe try it in another machine to make sure it's not defective too.

Some USB flash disks need to draw too much power for use on particular laptops, as Laptops tend to have USB ports which only have a low current draw,
the only way around this is to buy a "Powered" USB Hub (IE a USB hub with it's own plugtop power supply).
My Portable HDD is exactly the same way, and doesn't work on some laptops for this very reason.

Testimonial: "It was great to get a advice right away! Thanks! I'll get another cable to try if it works. "
Have you installed a scanner/another external USB drive since first trying your Flash drive? If so, try unplugging that and re-insert your Flash drive. I had this problem and a friend suggested this and it worked!
