Flash drive does not appear in My Computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Windows XP SP3 and my flash drive was working fine until the system hung the other day and I had to turn it off without shutting down. Now, when I plug any flash drive into the USB port it does not appear in My Computer so that I can access the files. It appears in device manager and is enabled and working properly, but I can't access the files. Can you please tell me what to do!
