Why is my flash drive not showing in Windows Explorer?

Several factors might cause your device to not appear in Windows Explorer. Ask yourself or your System Administrator, "What has recently changed with my computer or the environment it runs in?"

 

Try the following:

 
     
  1.  
    Plug the device directly into your computer's USB port (do not use a USB hub.)
     
  2.  
  3.  
    Plug the device into another computer on another network.
     
  4.  
  5.  
    Try checking the unit under Device Manager to see if the flash drive is being recognized there, and to see if there are any error codes.
     
  6.  
  7.  
    Try changing the drive letter.
     
  8.
