_ Dear member of SanDisk Community, welcome. _

Please, make the following tests:

1- In the _ Control Panel / _ Administrative Tools / Event Viewer: see if there is information on this item.

2- See also, in the Task Manager , the processes which are running, and see what are the necessary and what to delete. Because, there are some programs, that cause, system conflicts, by blocking the ports, such as: Samsung Kies, HTC Sync, etc.

3- In the _ Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Computer Management / Device Management Tools:_ see if a _ USB icon _ is crossed out with red , or there is a yellow question mark, etc.

See, also, for a teaching with images, the links:

Luck, and then you tell us, what happened, please.

Flash drives depend on Windows preloaded drivers in otder to work. What OS are you using? I hope it’s not Windows XP. Other than that, you can run Windows updates and try this again.
