Weird Flash Drive Malfunction
I just finished up building a new PC and have installed Ubuntu Linux into it.
I try putting in one of my flash drives to see if it works-it doesn't. That flash drive was inconsistent in the past so I plug in a second flash drive. It worked so than I ejected it and plugged it into my other computer to try some transferring. I put a mp3 and a word document in it and ejected it again to plug it in my new computer. Nothing happened. The red light that signified it has been detected did not light up. I unplug it and try to plug it back into my other computer. Nothing. I try different USB ports, nothing. It is like it went dead but I do not understand why. Now I am worried to plug anything into the new computer.
What went wrong? Any help is appreciated, thank you in advance!
