Have a 4GB Cruzer flash drive and it words on my older PowerPC with Tiger installed, but it will not show up on my new Macbook with Leopard.

Anyone know the cause of this?

Thanks

Do you know if it works on other computers (either Macs or PCs)? You might try reformatting the drive in Disk Utility and that could do it.

Have you tried using other USB ports on the computer too? Just to rule out any problem with a port itself...

Do you have hard disks checked in Finder Prefs?
I did this right before you posted and was hoping it was it, but it wasn't.

Did all of the above prior to posting. No idea why it isn't showing the flash drive.

thanks
