    Make sure the little switch on the side on it is not set to lock. I had that happen to me once. If it is not locked, you may need to replace it.

    I meant PNY, typo. The switch was on the side of the drive. Mine was older, so they may have removed them since then. But I had the same problem and thats what fixed it for me. If you dont have a switch on the side, I am not sure what else to try.

    I searched google for a bit, and found that it is incompatible with the Xbox, but that's all I could find. Do you have access to a second computer? Try there, if not, I would do what was said above, see if you can get it replaced under the warrenty.
