What kind of flash drive and computer are u working with? Let me know and I may be able to give u a more accurate answer. Try inserting another device in that USB port and check to see if ur computer is recognizing it in your device manager. Click on Start Tab then Go To Settings , Control Panel Then Click on System Icon , Then Click on the Hardware Tab and Click on Device Manager, scroll down to see if there are any yellow question marks or flags? Leave that Device manager window open and try to re insert your flash drive again and see what response u get?

When mp3 connected with the computer it goes off because that will be acted as usb only and the other funcion will be disabled. Therefore don't worry.

E machine model T3626 turns on display doesnt work and doesnt power off???


Sounds like either the Monitor is bad or the Video Card is bad. Try plugging another monitor on the computer and if it can't show a display then more than likely the Video Card is bad. If it shows on the monitor you just plugged in, then the original monitor is bad.

Its not showing up as a driver when i plug it in. the computer recognize a usb device has been plugged in by giving the little connected sound but the mass storage device doesnt show up. ive tried it on...


This is a bad sign.

If this occurs... try it on another computer. It may be that the drive has failed internally... If you leave them plugged in... they will last only 2 to 3 years at most.

Not showing up on computer that its plugged in


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
