    What is the make and model of the usb drive? Windows XP recognizes most usb keys. Earlier versions of windows like Windows 98 require drivers specific to the model of key, which you can download from the manufacturer's website.

My laptop is not able to detect sandisk cruzer blade (8gb) but my friend's laptop and my desktop detects it.

Your laptop may need drivers installed for your flash drive. Visit your USB drive manufacturer's website, find the "Support" page, and download the drivers for your specific drive. Be sure to know what version of your operating system you are running as it may be necessary to ensure you get compatible drivers. Install the drivers and try again.

Windows vista

There were several models made in the Classic format.
Early units had either Firewire or USB ports.
If would need an External CD Drive that plugs into the port on the player. Drivers would have to obtained from Apple at their web site and copied to a CD. Then a CD with the drivers would be inserted into a USB CD Drive and loaded on tot eh Player. The other solution is to Download the Drivers onto a computer, insert a FLASH Drive into the USB port on the computer, copy the drivers to the Flash Drive, and move the Flash drive over to the IPod's USB port. Copy the drivers or install from the Flash Drive.

If you have access to another computer with internet (friend, relative, neighbor, etc...), get a USB flash drive or thumb drive (2 or 4 GB can be found for around $10 - $15), then follow these steps:

1. locate your express service tag code, usually found on a sticker somewhere on the computer's case, and write it down.
2. go to Dell's support website:
3. Click "Drivers and Downloads"
4. Choose "By Service Tag"
5. Enter your Express Service Tag and click GO
6. Scroll down to "Network"
7. Download the "Recommended" driver and save it to the USB flash drive.

Take the USB flash drive back to your computer, open it in Windows Explorer, then double click the downloaded file and follow the installation directions from there.

You could also do the same with a CD-R if you don't have a thumb drive, but it's a bit more involved.

Flash drive ports on teh fron wont work on pc

If your system is USB 1 rather than USB 2 then some flash drives will not work. Not all usb 2 flashdrives are backwards compatible. My kids flasdrives will only work on my usb2 ports & will not work at all on my wife's computer which has the older usb 1 ports.

Flash drive can not be detected when installed on a desktop with an XP operating system. flash drive is recognized on several other desktops with XP, but not my computer. is it a driver issue? if so, can...

Hi john_nelson0,

First check the other USB ports. Try it in the USB ports on the back of the computer. If that doesn't help then make sure you have the latest WinXP service pack installed. Although it is possible to have a problem with the drivers, they are built into Windows and are not available for download from Kingston. Do any other USB drivers work on that computer?
