Just bought a cheap asus notebook from internet for me to be able to do my homework on it. It came with endless OS and I wanted to switch it to another OS. Then I realized that when I plug a usb flash driver, it doesn't even appear anywhere. I plugged a mouse, a keyboard and my phone and they all worked perfectly. Any ideas how can I solve this?

I'm not very familiar with Endless OS but I can tell that it's not a commonly used OS. It could be a software issue that can be fixed with an update.

If not, it's most probably just a formatting issue. Try and go on the notebook manufacturer's official website and hopefully you'll find USB compatibility format list, although I doubt they would advertise info like that.

You might need to try all the USB formats one at a time until you find the right one that's compatible.

HOW TO:
Go on Windows Computer > Plug in USB > Right Click USB > Format > Select desired format > Click Okay (This will wipe out anything on it).

I tried multiple usb drivers and none of them works, while all of them works on other devices. They don't appear on the bios menu either.
