USB Memory Stick not Showing up

Hi,

When i go onto My Computer to open up my memory stick it isnt there.

I have:

Checked in Device Manager and it shows up and says its working properly.

Swiched USB ports with a USB keyboard...the keyboard works ok but the Memory Stick isnt there again.

Disconnected whatever Network Drives i have on the pc in order to free up drive letters...still doesnt help.

I have tried two other memory sticks and still the same problem.

I have tried the two memory sticks on others pcs and they work ok.

I have also tried........

start > run
devmgmt.msc
enter>

Scrolled down to USB ROOT HUB, selected each, right click, choose PROPERTIES, gone to POWER MANAGEMENT, UNCHECKed "allow windows to turn off device to conserver power" (or whatever it says)

I have also changed the Drive letter of the stick to firstly E and then Y...still didnt show up.


It only shows up if i log out and log back in again.

I can also see it in the "Safely Remove Hardware" procedure and can remove it.

Its very strange that i cant see it in My Computer or Windows Explorer.

Im running XP SP2.

Thanks for any help.

If you are using a USB Hub, try the Memory Stick in a USB socket on your Tower. You could also run a System File Check just in case
