actually darkaztec, xp and vista come with built in drivers for removable disks. i really doubt a flash drive will need software
Not all dongles have their drivers built in. A number of them might use a special kind of software. I have one that makes things a lot easier to transfer really big files to and from it.
If it doesn't work on another computer, then it's probably the stick itself that isn't working.
(Also, how hard is it to spell my name right when it's right there in front of you?)
