new ssd/OS drive does not read flash drive
Hi all. I just did a clean Win 7 Home 64-bit install on a Kingston HyperX ssd 120g, so far so good except for two things:
1. For some reason, the system will not read a 8g Patriot Flash drive I have that is ready by every other computer I own, my work computer, and so forth. Weird. I've had this drive for about a year with no problems.
2. I notice that when I have any Office 2007 files on the desktop and click on them, they open instantly, but if I have them in folders on the desktop, there is a several-second pause. They actually open slower than they did on my raptor. Again, weird. It makes no difference whether I have Indexing enabled or not.
After messing with the Patriot flash drive for a while, I got my only BSOD so far. BTW, this is installed on my Gigabyte i7 system in sig (I need to change the specs a bit to indicate the kingston ssd).
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
