    My PNY Attache 2gb will not fit in my Dell Inspiron 600m Windows XP computer.
    Any help?
    When I try to put it in, it is not recognized.
    Help?

    Assuming you mean "work" by "fit"

    Can other flashdrives work?
    Have you tried using other USB ports?
    Have you used that flashdrive in other computers?

    Go to "Computer management" and you should see the drive, you'll need to reformat it.

    Nope, the flashdrive doesn't fit in the computer.

    Have you tried other USB ports? Have you tried a different computer? This will tell us if it's your computer or the drive that's at fault.

    Also, check for possible obstructions.

    Other flashdrives work
    USB ports don't work
    The flashdrive won't recognize in Vista after installing "Unknown Device" drive software

    IIRC, there's one for every USB port, so you may just have to delete them all.

    Um... does anything happen if you get Adware.lop and the folder shortcut virus?
    It happens to my flashdrive.
    The flash drive works on school comps though

    I solved the other problem, but now the flash drive doesn't sense in my computer.
    I bought a new one out of frustration, but I can't transfer files because it won't sense.
    It does work, but rarely it will.
    It works fine when the computer senses it, but it doesn't when it isn't sensed.
    There is a light on the Attache (the cap thing broke, so I could see) that flashes when it is connected.
    It rarely does that.
    Help?

    That just sounds like a problem with the connection. First check for obstructions, then try cleaning the contacts to give it a better connection.
