    My SanDisk 4Gb Cruzer Flash Drive works in my home HP desktop, but does not show up in my office Fujitsu XP laptop. So, I can't transfer my work from home to office. Strangely, it works in my colleagues' laptops - we are issued the same model.

    Please advise as to how I could get it to work on my laptop. Thanks a lot!

    Welcome to TSG shansg!! Hope this helps...

    At work you probably have a network drive mapped to the Letter the FlashDr wants to use. On the work PC disconnect the network drives (or remove the laptop from the network connection then login) for the letter that shows up at home (probably F:\). Insert the FlashDr and the pc should now see it. Go to Computer Management (my computer, right click, select management, go to storage, disk management right click and select 'change drive letter'. Pick a letter that doesn't map.

    You'll have to reconnect network drive, easist to logoff and back on or reboot. But that computer should now recognize your FlashDr as the new letter.
