    Hello.
    Yesterday I bought UFD 2.0 Silicon-Power 32GB USB

    When I connect it to my PC and try to upload anything it says

    But when I tried on another PC it worked.
    It not work only on my PC.

    I tried on all ports and it's the same.
    I am sure that my ports work because I have webcam connected and it work.

    I use Windows XP SP3.
    I have one more USB-flashdrive that have the same problem.
    Work on other PC's but don't work on mine.

    Does anybody have any idea how to solve this problem ?

    Hi,
    It looks like the problem is with the file you are trying to save on your USB. Try to save any known working file like a picture you can open or a music or video clip that you can play.

    Try allocating your USB drive from Disk Management. Back up the files saved on your USB first, Assign letter to it then format.

    When I search for the USB drive in the Disk Management it says that the USB is unreadable.
    But it work on other PC's

    Is it being detected as RAW? again, since it's working on other PC, take chance to back it up first before doing anything.
    Have you tried formatting it as FAT32? sometimes it won't allow you to format but see if it will work for you. from the disk management, just right click on the drive then format
    If there's no success, Try error-checking on the drive. right click then properties, under tools, click check now.
    you can also try formatting it on the computer where it works

    if you still got no success, look for HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool. download it from a known secure provider then use it to format your USB
