Hi, I have recently bought a home PC running Windows 10 having been a Mac user until now. I have stored all my photos etc. on a Buffalo drive. When I tried to retrieve these the drive is not coming up. It has power and is connected via the USB port on the front of the PC. I couldn't find a driver for Windows 10 online. Any help gratefully received

Hi Glendurgan,

did you safely remove the USB stick from the last PC it was connected to?. :)

I have use new USB Thumb drives that come formatted as FAT32 to copy files, photos, .mp3, etc., from my Mac [which recently died] then put it in a Windows or Linux computer to work with. Linux does better with more formats than Windows. Another common formatting that I've used on all 3 types of computers is exFAT, gets around the 4GB single-file size limit of FAT32.
