    MacBook does not recognize flash drive
    I have a Kingston flash drive that I use between a pc and my Mac. I just backed up a file from the pc to the flash drive but my Mac can no longer read any of the files. I'm trying to eject it from the Mac now but it wouldn't (everything's closed!)... I can, of course, just pull it out but does anyone have other ideas?

    Instead of pulling the flash drive out, reboot your Mac. During the reboot cycle and before the machine boots to the desktop, remove the drive. Try it again in your PC to be sure it's still working.

    What kind of file did you copy to the flash drive?
