No errors show...is a U3 Cruiser. It shows up on friends
computer just like it does on mine. But, nothing happens when
you try to launch it.

maybe it`s drivers are not installed

go to start > run > write devmgmt.msc and look for yellow markers

if any, maybe the USB is one of them,so right click on them and select update driver

Try selecting the drive and clicking on 'Autorun'. Your friends PC might not be recognizing or acknowledging 'autorun'.

I can get in to see the device...but, when I right clicked & went in to explore....nothing happened. The disc is called launch & should open when you click on it. (Does on my computer)...but nothing still happens on friends puter?
