I recently accuired a USB Flash Drive from a friend because he did not know how to use it. Well know that makes two of us... Well, I can usually use them but this one is weird. I plug it in and it recognizes that the usb drive has been plugged in but when I go to My Computer there is no removable drive listed. Only the C:\ is there...

It is a...
ACOM Data
Model Number TSAR-006
P/N:F433AP001
S/N:310417

I googled it but I found nothing. I went to ACOM Data's website and still nothing. If someone could provide me with some info or help me figure out how to use it I would be more than greatful. Thanks.

Does it have an FCC number on it?

It sounds like it needs formatting. Format it as FAT16 and see if that solves the problem.

When you say only C:\ does that mean you don't show a drive letter for the drive like E:\ ?

Well, the O/S in use would be handy...

If you're running 2K or XP, you can format it in Disk Management.

usb flash drives are good if you are running on latest Operating Systems / and also an updated bios. Old bios versions make them hang.
try reinstalling the drivers of the USB flash device. Perhaps your machines usb ports are usb 1.0/1.1.
some important facts about usb drives can be found from this link

If I am correct, the TSAR-006 is not a flash drive. It is a USB-RF device that is used with an associated laser pointer. The laser pointer also functions as a slide advance device (e.g. with a PowerPoint presentation) and communicates with the computer via the USB-RF.

You are completely correct - the device is a receiver for a laser pointer / Powerpoint presentation controller - it is model no. TSAM-001
