    I have the same problem with a portable hard-drive - laptop just won't recognize the driver. Don't know if it's something to do with a power-surge on the USB port, but would be glad if anyone could assist the above poster, and myself.

    what makes your laptop? my sister had problems with her samsung laptop the flash drives would work on my Toshiba and HP ones but not on hers, she googled for usb flash drive drivers and sorted it that way (so she thinks!!)
