Hi Cigar,
I,ve got 4 USB flash drives and all I did was plug them in to a USB port. Winows XP see's the drive and assigns the next avalible drive number automaticlly. Are you using XP?

Re: Usb memory pen

Yeah, I agree with wobble...I think this particular reviewer has his flash drive stuck ...you know where...xp will just assign "next"

The same goes for any Windoze OS since Win-98SE.
Heck, one of my mates at work even runs his USB flash memory on Win-95 without a problem (USB1.1).

98 does not take all usb devices and did he installed it the software himself becouse 98 has no drivers for usb devices in my experience (on school we work with windows 98 allot)
