What exactly are you trying to do? You don't need to install scandisk.

- open My Computer
- right click on the drive you wanna check & select Properties
- click on the Tools tab
- under Error-checking click Check now....
- if you think you need it, check the box to scan for bad sectors, then click Start
- the computer may have to be restarted for the scan to begin

Can you see this drive in "Computer"? If not have you confirmed it will work on another computer as it might be faulty?

If it is showing in "Computer" then you just need to set the AutoPlay in the Control Panel.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hello,
I think he ask for "scan for hardware changes" as he said,

"have introduced an 8GB disk.
I have it connected to my tower but nothing happens"

Go to device manager through,
start-->search-->type "device manager"

now plug the 8gb usb and now check any changes happen there or you see any yellow exclamation mark there?..

Also try to search in Disk management,
click on Start and then Run.
Type the following command in the text box:

diskmgmt.msc

...and then hit the Enter key or press the OK
now did you see the usb there?
