    Hello !!

    please see crefully,if the drivers are instaled than why you are not able to see the icon on my computer.
    ensure that you have not applied optio for hidden.
    or it might be due to malware in your system.
    so,try to format the pendrive in another system.
    and yhen plugin in your system.
    and check it,wheather it is showing or not.
    and then do let us know.

    thanks for posting..

    The problem may be the physical damage of the PenDrive.

    Or the connecting slot for the drive may have some issues.

    Check those two factors, then Uninstall the USB driver from the Tablet, again download a fresh copy from the net and install properly in the Tablet.

    This should solve the issue, if physical damage is not there.

    Dear Friend!!
    There are some specs of a pen drive also.
    like how much power does it uses and its data transfer rate and compatibility.
    you need to check that if your pen drive is below 165w(watt),then its not compatible with windows 8.
    You need to connect it with some device which can put external power.
    These devices are available in market.

    first check is the pendrive is detectable in any other system. sometime incompatibility or driver issue cause this problem.

    if it is discoverable in any other computer but not in your system then you need to install/repair the driver for this device. you can update it through windows update channel.

    just go to device manager by typing in search box. then click scan for hardware changes to scan for driver automatically.

    second is if your pendrive got corrupt then dont need to worry as transcend provide a online recovery tool to recover faulty pendrives you can download it from transcend official website and then use it to recover your pendrive.
