There is a problem with this drive and windows vista. Unfortunately both these companies will throw you the run around (Microsoft says talk to Kingston, Kingston says talk to microsoft. It is definetly a Vista issue. There is no driver you can find for vista. I would recommend replacing it with one that you know is compatible with Vista or wait til this problem is fixed. Will work in XP just fine.
Thanks,
Lee

Hi Cinderella

Who is the manufacturer of the flash drive? you may have to go to their website and download the drivers for the flash drive to operate with vista. it should be a free download.

My computer tells me I need to install the driver software for the Verbatim 8 GB jump drive.


Elaina,

That is unusual that Vista would not already have the driver for that device. What you might be able to do is have device manager search the web for the driver automatically.
This video may help (it's for windows 7 but the instructions are virutally thes same): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbXatmo4QBU

If it says it can't find a driver, then I believe there is an option to have it search the web for the driver. (Does the flash drive have a model number on it by chance?)

None of my external hard drives or flash drives recognized by Vista


Ok Go into your hardware device manager and uninstall your Universal Serial Bus Controllers and if there is mass storage device also uninstall it. Click on action -> scan for hardware changes, then it should automatically install the drivers back now it should detect.

Sandisk flash drive


Is the account that your tying to access the drive with an Administrator account? If not, Log in as Administrator and try to access the new drive. If you ARE using Administrator privileges on the vista machine, the problem lies in the U3 smart driver. Try downloading and installing the drivers for the XP SP2 os on scan disks website, If vista rejects the install package off of the scan disk website, let me know and i'll extract the drivers and build an install for them for you.

Vista has not been out long enough for any company to state that there product is compatible. I would check there website to see if they have updated drivers that will make the sandisk usb drive compatible. This may fix the problem!

Unable to install IOMEGA HDD on Vista Home Premium


Vista may require drivers that are not preinstalled. If the drive clearly works on one machine, but not another, its safe to pressume its not the drive. On the VISTA machine, go to the Iomega site and download the driver for vista or usb or whatnot.
