Windows 7: Can't Find My USB Flash Drive in the Computer Window



Sometimes, when you connect your USB flash drive to your computer, despite it is well recognized by Windows, you cannot find it in the Computer window.



 It is, therefore, impossible to browse your USB flash drive contents. To fix this, you need to follow these instructions:

1. Click the Start button, type compmgmt.msc in the search box, then press Enter.



2. On the left menu, click Disk Management.



3. On the right pane of the window, right click on your USB flash drive and click Explore.



Your USB flash drive will now reappear again in the Computer window (Start Menu >> Computer).

Any ideas why?
