the topic pretty much says it all. i bought a new usb and when i plugged it into my comp it appeared in "my computer" but when i double clicked it , it went "please insert a disk into drive E" i clicked properties, volumes and the status of the usb was "no media"

any ideas as to how to fix this?

    Most USBs come with a LED light attached. Does the USB have a light blinking? If it does and not blinking then the computer doesn't recognize the USB drive.

    Try plugging something else in the port, if it doesn't work then most likely the port is broken.
