Do other computers read the flash drive? If not, faulty drive. If yes, it may be recognized but you have Auto-play disabled. That's actually a good thing. Assuming this is a Windows computer that is at least XP or newer, open Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) BEFORE connecting the USB drive. Then left-click on the My Computer item. The right side of the screen will display all currently recognized drives. Plug in the USB drive and watch the righ side of the screen. I'll bet a new drive will appear within about 45 seconds. If so, just double click on the new drive and you'll see all your "stuff". If not, you may have a faulty USB port.

Windows XP 'writemaster' not recognised


There were more problems and I needed a solution fairly quickly. The solution I used was to wipe the hard drive, re-install windows xp and start again. A bit drastic but the problem did not re-occur.

Im plugging my flash drive into the usb and nothing is coming up. this one works in other computers but not this one


For starters, what is the operating system of this computer?
Windows XP will recognise flash drives, 2000 seems to recognise some but if you have 95, 98 or Me you need to install a driver for the drive. The manufacturer of the drive may not even supply one.
