Why when i insert my usb flash drive and then begin to browse it, it would show only the first set of files. Wh n i try to access a directory such as a folder, it would then freeze and show none of it's contents. Also when i look at the drives properties it would tell me that the disk contains 0 free space and 0 used space. how can i get the usb to work ? Plzzzz HELP!!!!

Hi darkcrimson, it sounds like your USB drive might have died. Are you able to test it in another computer? If it gives the same errors, then it looks like you'll need to buy another one.

Are there any other USB devices you can test on your computer? Any problems with those?
