    I have a flash drive that i purchased yesterday. The first time i stuck it in it was read like expected. I ejected it correctly, everything was fine.

    now when i put it in, it doesnt show up ion the desktop or in the finder. however when i unplug it i get the message saying it was not removed correctly.

    any ideas on what i can do to get this to read right?

    Make sure that removable media is set to show on the desktop in the Finder preferences.

    If that does not work try opening Disk Utility in the boot drive/Application/Utilities folder. To see if is showing there. If it does show up you can try reformatting it.
