    TDK USB pen drive not showing in Computer


    Hi there

    I have a TDK 16GB usb pen drive that shows in Device Manager when inserted but not in Computer. It does sometimes appear but very rarely. I have updated all driver via Device manager an they are fine.

    Hope somebody can help as I shelled out 24 for it.

    Thanks in advance

    Does it work properly even though it doesn't show up? Every thing that I've seen so far on this device, is that it's an actual usb thumb drive and not a pen drive.

    I needed it to do a Win7 install. It needs for me to fo in to Dev manager, uninstall, remove then put back in again. strange one I think.
