How to troubleshoot a usb device not recognized warning? How do I solve this problem? The flash drive that I'm trying to access works on our office computer. But not in my laptop. The flash drive is also super slow when I accessed it in the office computer. Please comment if you need more details.

It sounds like the device is starting to fail. It sounds like you are stuck at USB 1.1 speeds which might explain the reason it doesn't work on your computer. Honestly I would get a new drive or at least verify the port your using works. –  Ramhound Jun 2 '11 at 12:53

Your drive is most probably failing. I would just pull all the data off it and get a new one. Not a whole lot you can do.
