Help with Flash drive problems.

I am an IT guy for a school. All the computers won't read flash drives. The drive doesn't show up anywhere that I can find. Including disk management. The computers are all running xp.

  1. If they are school computers, accessing external storage devices may have been disabled deliberately to prevent unauthorised file transfers and virus-infection.
    My college computers are like that. USB storage devices aren't recognised, and floppy drives are physically locked.
    None of the computers have a CD burner.

    The fact that all the computers won't read such devices means it's more likely to be an intentional restriction than a Windows or hardware fault.

    The restriction can be set by using the "Group Policy Editor" in Windows XP Professional, or by a registry edit in other versions, the details of which I do not know.
