Please bear my english :), I'll try to explain what happens the best way I can :)

I bought a 1gb Kingston Pen Drive three days ago and plugged it to my pc. Everything went fine, installed correctly and I could copy some files in my Pen drive, so I could move them to my other Pc.

I then plugged it to my brother's pc, and was able to exrtract those files succesfully.

Today, I plug my pen drive to my pc and suddenly the little arrowy icon ("remove hardware safely" not sure about translation) keeps popping and dissapearing. So does the pen drive unit in My Pc - it appears as "unit" H, then "kingston" H, and then nothing. I can't use it - I am able to see the files inside but no more than 30 seconds or so.

This will keep happening until I unplug the pen drive.

Then I went to my brother's pc again, plugged it, and it works fine there. The problem is in MY pc.

Why is that? what's wrong?
My pc is newly formatted 5 days ago, my USB boards work fine with everything else.
I have Windows Xp Pro.

Any help? :)

Thanks in advance :)
