Ok, I have a U3 cruizer, my school life revolves around it, too bad it's only a 512.

The problem that I'm having is that the computers in the tech room. Every time I stick it into the usb, the computer doen't recognise it.

Then the teacher, who is also an admin, logged me onto his acct to see if I could get the computer(s) to recoginise the drive. It worked.

That didn't solve the problem tho. First, I'd have to do this with every computer, there's somewhere around 30 computers, all new dells as of 1 or 2 years ago, XP (pro?). Also when I try to use it on my account, or on someone else's acct, the computer recognizes the drive, starts to load the software, but just stops. the busy light on the drive goes off and the eject usb device button dissapears.

btw, the teacher's flash drive (nothing special) isn't recognised either.

Any ideas that could help with this delema wil be greatly appreciated.
