    I have been using my flash drive until about two weeks ago when now they are recognized as flash drives. When I look at the device manager, is says they are "unknown device". What can start this and what is the fix?

    No drivers are supposed to be required for the Flash Drive to be recognized as a flash drive. This is according to other techies that I have spoken to.
