Hi Guys

Not sure which form this belongs in, so placed it here.

I have a 4G Toshiba memory drive I purchased a few days ago that whenever I plug it into my Vista laptop its luck of the draw if Windows see's the drive. When it does see it, eventually Vista freezes until I remove the drive, or if Windows doesn't see it I can remove the drive (safely remove hard does show, but doesn’t want to work), the drive will flash on screen in My Computer before disappearing.

I had a 2GB drive the same and had no problems. It seems to work on my XP PC, but has been known to freeze that also.

Just wondering if anyone thinks it could be a compatibility issue, or should I just take it back to the retailer and ask for a replacement? Cheers

Take it back, I am assuming this is the mdel which actually states ready boost compatible on it? No USB stick should be causing your system to lock up.

Yes it is the one that says readyboost compatible.

I'll take it back monday and see what happens.

Thanks for your advice.
