    i have a problem with pc recognizing flash drive

    earlier, i had no problem connecting and opening files within flash drive. but a few minutes ago, somehow, i cannot open flash drive. this particular drive has portableapps program saved and i use that to run portable programs. im thinking maybe its the usb connection hub that is the culprit..because when i plug in flash into adaptor thats connected to tablet, i can open files..

    any hints?

    oh and now i see my external drive is not showing either! what?? i need it to open..what is causing the problem?

    I'm wondering if the option to allow your system to turn off your USB ports to save power is enabled.

    ok...so i restarted again, and plugged in the flash drive and external hdd..iam able to access them! always a reboot clears up problems. so i guess disaster averted. would of been a huge huge event. as i have over 6-700GB of stuff saved on both devices
