    Hi,

    I've purchased a kingston 1gb usb drive..it worked fine...but these days my machine is not showing the contents of the drive even though it detect it. Sometimes it'll show an error pointing it as "USB device not recognized". And interestingly, at times I get a glimpse of my files for 5secs n then it'll go blank...What would be the problem..??? probably with the port...huh ? plzzz help me...thanking you.

    regards
    Windchimes

    if its the port, then put it into a different one, if not, try formatting the drive.
