Have you tried formatting the drive, or disabling the write protection? Maybe you need to install the drivers for it to work properly. Try downloading them from the manufacturer's website or installing the software on the CD-ROM that came with your drive. Also make sure that you have plugged it into your computer's USB port. The ports should be located on the back of your computer.
If it's broken, ask the manufacturer to supply you with a new one.
Sometimes, it feels as though my life is just a never-ending circle of pain and misery. Not to mention sadness, worthlessness, and humiliation. But I can only cry inside. Deep behind my happy smile and bright personality is a sad and lonely person, a mere figment of my former self. Someday, all this pain will be over. I will drop down and die. At other times I ask myself, \"If only this would happen right now\".
