    Suggest then you make sure the drive is getting power and spinning, if you are not hearing any clicking noises but feel the drive spinning - try replacing the USB cable.



    After that you should look at your device manager and potentially remove all the USB deviced there and let windows discover it on a restart.



    Keep me posted

When I put my DaneElec 4GB USB Drive into my USB port, nothing happens. We have Vista.


Do other USB devices work when you plug them in the USB port?
If they don't then you have a faulty USB port otherwise the DaneElec is faulty or needs formatting.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
