My transcend 2 GB pen drive is not detected in windows xp?please reply me how i solve this problem.

Try connecting your pendrive in some other computer and if not working in different machines also, then the problem is with your pen drive. If genuine transcend pen drive, then claim it under warranty to get the new one.

If working in other computers but not with your computer, then try connecting the drive to your computer via the USB ports directly available behind your computer as this may fix the issues with USB extension cables and usb spliters, if any

I hope this is helpful to you

My hard drive doesn't show up

If the external hard drive is not detected by yur computer, try first connecting the drive on a different USB port so we can test the USB port and then after that if still not yet detected try a different USB cable to test the cable and after that still not detected connect the drive on different computer so we can see if this is already a hardware problem.....

I just bought a UBS flash drive there where no instructions in the pacaging. I guess they assume everyone is savvy and knows how to use one. I don't! please I just want some easy to follow instructions. I...

UNless you are using Windows 98 or Windows 95, a USB key will be detected as a hrad drive when connected to the system. You simply copy the files using MY Computer or Windows Explorer to the USB drive. When finished, the files are on the drive, and you can take them to another system.

You can also open the file, then use the SAVE AS function to select a different location (The USB drive) and copy the file that way.

If you are using windows 98, you'll need a software driver for Windows 98 to recognize a USB drive. The drivers are made by the USB drive manufacturer

Which drivers for USB External Hard Drive ?

Well, Occam's razor philosophy!  I just tried on my 250 Gb IOMEGA external HDD on Win98 and it worked. "Mass storage" jargon driver does NOT work. HOWEVER if you declare it as "USB FLASH DISK", it WORKS, (after computer reboots), though not that speedy. Anyway, you can do your job. Now if you have found any better solution, please forward it at Thank you!

Possible usb malfunction?

well xp is a better OS than 98 ( i think) ...
few things you should know that xp is pre-installed with lotsa drivers..but on the other hand 98 isn't .. so each time you put in a USB device you need to install the driver for that device( eg your camera, pen drive etc...) . this drivers would be there accompanied with your device.
hope it helps
