    Hello There,

    I have a Toshiba Satellite L300-11F laptop, using XP Professional w/ SP3 on it.
    It comes with 3 USB ports.
    I have an older 1GB pendrive and just recently purchased a Maxell 16GB pendrive.
    The pendrive works flawless at work, desktop pc but does not seem to work with the laptop.

    I managed to use it only once, since then the laptop USB port simply does not recognize it.
    I can tell it as the red led is not flashing and the pendrive can not be accessed.
    I tried using the supplied Toshiba USB hub, no luck either [​IMG]

    The 2 USB ports are ok as I use mouse, digital camera with it.
    So is the 16GB pendrive, it works perfectly using other machines eg desktop pcs

    Am I missing some USB drivers or whats the problem ? :eek:
    Please help as I need to be able to use the unit on the laptop too.

    Thank you! :cool:
