Have you ever plugged in a USB drive or any external device with a hard drive and wondered why you cannot see it in My Computer?

I often have, I believe my USB is not broke .. because if I plugin the USB to another computer could be seen / detected. I tried following this tutorial http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/22251/find-your-missing-usb-drive-in-windows-7-vista/

but I am afraid of going wrong, and caused my data is lost. is there any easy way around this problem?

many thank's for your attentions Guys ..

Did you follow the tutorial? Did it work? Have you tried plugging the USB into another computer? – Lil' Smokey May 23 '12 at 15:02
