Hello, I have come across a problem with my usb drive that I really need fixed as soon as possible for school. When I try to plug it into a computer, nothing pops up, no sound is made, nothing at all. But, when I plug it into my PS3 it recognizes it just fine. What could be the problem?

try a different computer and it'll help you know if it's the drive or the computer.

Okay, I tried it on my mother's laptop, and it works perfectly fine. The weird thing is, I tried the school computers (apple macs) and they didn't work. Other usb devices work fine though so I can't see the problem.\

EDIT: My computer OS is Windows 8, my mom's is Windows 7.
