Computer will not read my flash drive

I have a Cruzer Micro 1.0 GB.  I have used it on a number of computers with little difficulty.  However, I have tried to use it on my friend's laptop.  He has a Dell Inspiron 700M with XP. I have plugged the drive in and the light is on, though it's not blinking, just a solid light.  However, the computer does not even acknowledge that the drive even exists.  It does not install any software, it does not allow me to access documents on the drive, it doesn't even show up on My Computer.    Any ideas?

I think it does show up in the device manager, but I did not check the disk management.

You should also try other USB ports on your friend's laptop to see if they will allow you to access the drive or not.
