I have a computer problem that is stumping me. I have a 32M flash usb memory stick that works just fine on one of my computers in the office but not on the other three. All the same model dells. The one it works on has some different soft ware but it appears to be using the same driver that is used on the other computers for the device. The device is recognized in the device manager when you plug it in and says that it is working properly. An icon appears on the task bar for proper removal of the device. The problem is that the device does not show up in any list so that you can write to it. You can not see it in my computer or if you try save as from an office program. On the computer that it works with. It shows up as a usb mass storage device and you read and save from it as with any other drive. I think it must be a setting or something since the computers are the same. Our IT guys don't want to help because it is an unsupported device but it's driving me crazy. I have looked all over the Internet and as of yet have not found anyone describing this problem. If you have any ideas I would appreciate your input. Thanks
