i'm asking for a buddy, i was not there when i tried this everything is by word of mouth, but he said that he connected the flash drive thru the usb port and it recognized it and the little box popped up by the clock, and so he x'd out of that. and never used it just pulled it out. the next time he tried to use it, the computer told him it was unrecognizable and wouldn't open it. and just to be sure it wasn't the drive he used it in another computer, and it was fine. should i have him change the intel usb drivers to standard usb device? or what would yall suggest?
