    i was one vacation for 6 weeks and I was the only one that had a computer so we put all pictures on it. Long story short. When my dad tried attaching his external drive Iphoto wouldn't let him copy the pictures and Os X didn't read the flash drive he gave me to try....:(
    Any ideas....
    Another piece of information that might help is, that my laptop is the only Mac in my family, everything else is windows.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I'd go get another flash drive to use. It's possible that one was bad, or formatted in NTFS, which would be annoying. Flash drives are cheap, and it's always good to have a couple. I'd avoid the sandisk ones with the U3 software on them though, that software is windows only and they don't eject right in OS X.
