My Usb Flash Drive Won't Connect To Mac
Guys 'n' Gals
A month or so ago I tried to plug my falsh drive into my MAC to send some photos. The USB said it was being charged but the MAC seems to have no linking that it's connected. I can't force it to pick it up when it can't see anything there at all. I've not been able to connect it to the MAC since
Can anyone suggest what might (not) be happening?

Flash drives don't "charge" per se. That is just a connection indicator light.
Flash drives that are formatted in Windows with the NTFS file system will not show in Mac. You can check the file system on the drive by right-clicking it in Windows and selecting Properties. The file system used is right there.
Additionally. flash drives do not last forever. They die off pretty fast under heavy use and can fail suddenly at any time.MCSE, MCP and nut job
