Hi, had to repair windows xp pro sp2 and now my usb flash drive won't work
All other usb things are fine
The drive shows in computer management - disk management
I have tried uninstalling the driver and rebooting and it still won't work
Have also tried in safe mode

Any ideas?
Scott

Did the drive come with any software from the manufacturer? You may need to install it.
