Hello. I had recently purchased a flash drive to transfer data [mostly pictures, music and videos] from my old Toshiba laptop to my new MacBook. I made sure that the drive said it worked with Macs and PC's however when I put the flash drive into the USB port, nothing happens. It was working fine with the Toshiba, and on the other iMac we had it worked fine. What can I do? By the way, the iMac is only about a month older than my MacBook. Thanks for your help.
I would first make sure the USB port is recognizing it. Look in About this Mac > More Info > USB. If it doesn't show up there, try the other port. Then try Disk Utility. See if it is recognized there too.
Try a USB keyboard in the USB port to see if the port is working or not.
Hi, thanks for your help. Nothing still is happening. I think that it might be the flash drive, however I am not sure. It is a Lexar 4 GB flash drive, if that helps at all. I have had it for probably around 3-4 months.
