Hello,

I have done a few searches and can't find this problem I am having. I have a brand new flash drive that won't show in disk utility, finder, or my desktop. This drive is new straight from the packaging. I haven't formatted or done anything else to it. All my other USB devices work fine, so that rules out a dead USB port. The drive is recognized on windows computer, but not my mac. Does anybody know of any solutions? I tried rebooting the computer and unplugging all other USB devices with no success. Thanks!
