    Recently purchased a PNY 32 GB Metal Attache Flash Drive. Dowloaded files from one computer so I could work at home on my laptop (system information included above). Inserted the flash drive into laptop USB, and it would not load, and laptop would not recognize in the USB drive. How do I fix?

    Try plugging it into the MOBO directly.

    I had same prob - plugged into USB on case - wouldn't work.
    Plugged into MOBO - worked.

    Did the laptop recognise that the drive had been inserted??
    IE is it shown in DEVICE MANAGER and DISK MANAGER?
