I have a problem with this Pen Drive.
I can see it in Disk Management, but cannot format it, I get a message that an unexpected error occurred.
I can Format it using Acronis Disk Director, and have done so but no change.
I have tried to update the driver, but It says the latest driver is installed.
I have uninstalled the driver in Device manager (It shows up there) and rebooted with no change.
Device manager says this device is working properly.
I am Windows 7, but It works on my friends Vista computer.
Any ideas at all, I don't really want to get rid of it.

Have you tried using it when you are logged on as administrator?

I am wondering if it is related to the infamous User Account Control (UAC)

Thanks scotty, yes I am the administrator. I can't right click on it because it doesn't show up in My Computer. Only in Disk Management.
