    I have recently bought a 4GB flash drive and gave it to my friend who has windows to put some photos and videos on.
    I then plugged it into my computer(imac G4) and a little icon "NO NAME" showed up so i clicked onit and there were all the videos and photos no problem.
    I put the videos onto my computer and deleted the files and put some of my videos on it for my friend.
    The problem is that he said he can't see the flash drive on his computer so he gave it me back and now i can't see it on mine either.....wierd.
    The light flashes but nothing happens.I deleted the trash with it plugged in and still no joy.....whats going on,is it broke or have i done something wrong.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks Scottie

    Gotta format the flash drive on the PC first. to use it on both platforms.. If you plug it into Mac first then it's Mac format only then the pc needs Mac drive or something similar to read it..
