    My flash drive won't connect to PC

    Guys 'n' Gals,

    A month or so ago I tried to plug my flash drive into my PC (XP SP2) to download some photos. The flash pen said it was being charged but the PC seems to have no inkling that it's connected. I can't force it to pick it up when it can't see anything there at all. I've not been able to connect it to the PC since.
    Can anyone suggest what might (not) be happening?

    Thanks,all

    Plug it in, Right Click My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager

    Do you see any yellow !'s at the bottom, by "Universal Serial Bus controllers"? Expand the + sign too!

    chrissai--Just opening Device Manager fixed the problem of the flash drive not being recognized?
