Flash drive not working
\015 Flash drive is not recognized by my computer, other usb devices work fine. does not appear that the drive is getting power...the light doesn't turn on.\015
An option that you could do is to plug the flash drive in the back of the computer. The reason is because flash drives derive power from the USB port itself unlike other usb devices that you are using may have their own power or because the USB port in front does not give as much power as the one from the back.
