USB Flash Drive Problems...

I have a Kingston DataTraveler SE6 Thumb Drive (8GB) and when i plug it into the computer, it isnt recognized in the Computer menu, i do hear the *Something has been plugged in* sound, when i plug it in, but it doesnt let me get the information from it, it just sits there... and when i go to device manager i can actually see it, it just wont let me get the data out of it.

Also, the first time i plugged it in it said that it couldn't install the drivers from it, and i don't know how to fix that.

1. Check whether it appears in Disk Management. If it does not have a drive letter, assign one.

2. In the Device Manager, where it appears, does it have any yellow exclamation mark/question mark? Right click on the device and then Properties. What does it say under the general tab?

No, the device is fine, no yellow exclamation mark, but when i try to assign a drive letter to it, it says that the device manager or something isnt UP TO DATE, and thats where and cant move any further.

1. Please post a screenshot of the thumb drive as it appears in the Disk Management.( Please remove all other external drives plugged in.) Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

2. Please write down the exact error message you get when trying to assign a drive letter and post it. The statement you posted is as good as you had not posted it.

3. Have you tried it on any other PC?

4. Do other pen drives work on your PC?
