    I've got an Integral 128MB 2.0 Flash Drive and whenever I plug it in, the drive window never appears, well it's done it on one XP machine, but most of the time it just says USB pen found ect, and then nothing

    How can I get the drive window to come up every time I plug it in?

    Yeah it's being used on XP machines only, and only seemed to work on one.

    It came with a disk that's got the 98 driver on it, don't think it came with anything else on it, can't really check right now. I'm pretty sure the drive window should just come up? Like it does with most (all?) models?

    It shouldn't require drivers in Windows XP. Is the USB port working properly on that second PC?

    I was aware of this, but if it's not recognising it, then the problem lies elsewhere...

    When you plug it in, does it show up in My Computer under the header "Devices with Removable Storage"?
