Look for the USB drive in Disk Management. If it shows there then post all the information listed in Disk Management for that drive.

It is a USB 2.0 Flash Drive and says it is working properly. However, it says it is empty - which is not true.

Thanks,

You didn't post all the information listed on the flash drive from Disk Management.

What is the file format? RAW, FAT32, etc?

Improper removal of USB devices can cause data/file corruption.

So you say you CAN access the files on the flash drive when connected to a different computer? Were the files created on the computer that can't now access them?

Look at the link below to see if it is of any help.

Thanks for the info...

In my case... files were created on other computers (w/XP and Windows 7). But the problem I have is that when connected to this particular computer, it says there are no files... usb drive is empty...

Try the solutions in the link. Don't take the message too literally. Could mean there are no messages that are available to you. That is the most obvious explanation, if the flash drive does actually hold files that you can access elsewhere.
