    I recently upgraded to Vista Ultimate and now none of my 4 flash
    drives (different manufacturers) can be seen although there was no
    problem in XP. The various manufacturer's site have no drivers except
    for x98.
    Anyone know of any 3rd party drivers or utilities that will fix this
    problem? Google shows this is a problem for others but so far I havn't
    come across any solutions.
    Thanks

    Well, hindsight doesn't help much, but you should have check the list.

    You can post to this public NG to see if you can get some help.

    You should check with the tech support of the manufacturers of the devices
    to see when and if a driver for Vista is going to be released or maybe they
    have a workaround.
