When I connect my compact flash to my HP computer via a USB port I hear the dong from my computer saying it recognizes it and the light on the connection device lights up but when I go to my computer the icon for it is not there.

Hi. The "dong" sound tells you that a device was plugged in to your USB port. However, we need to identify thoroughly if the problem is your USB flash drive or the USB port itself. Have you tried plugging in the USB flash drive to other computer. Just to test if the compact flash is working. For your USB port, have you tried plugging in other USB device to your USB port just to test the port if it is working.

    I know my USB Port is working. I plugged in two other devices, one another camera card, and they both worked. The camera card that worked is a San Disc Memory Stick Pro, for an Olympus camera, the one that is not working is a San Disk Compact Flash for a Cannon. I did buy a new compact flash and blew off several shots & it still did not work. I just checked it on another computer and it did not work.

    I see. The problem here is the compact flash drive since you plugged it in with other computer and you are getting the same problem. Are you using like another device (adapter) where you insert the flash card for the computer to be able to read this flash card?

    Actually I fixed the problem. It was the card reader for the compact Flash slot. I bought a new one and it is working fine now. Thanks for your help
