I bought this flash drive from Geeks.com. No CD driver or manual was included. The plan was to plug it into my old Win98SE machine and copy my music files to it, then transfer those to my WinXP laptop.
First BIG problem: Centon's driver download page is a bad joke.... there are NO drivers for my specific model. I tried downloading some of them anyway, and kept getting errors about how the source file is unreadable, thus the download cannot continue. So, I went to DriverGuide.com, who also appeared not to have my model's drivers. A few of the drivers looked iffy, so I downloaded them & installed... no luck. I spent hours sifting through Google and found nothing useful.
Later, I decided to test my new flash drive on my XP-sporting laptop (after all, according to Centon, it's pretty much a plug-n-play affair with XP; no drivers needed, right?).
Second BIG problem: I stick the flash into my USB port, and..... nothing happens, no hardware detection notice or anything. I know for a fact there is nothing wrong with my port because I had just unplugged my tablet from it, which works wonderfully.
The flash drive DOES light up, so I guess it works........ soooo why isn't it working?
