Click to open your USB device in My Computer. Then double click it to show the files on the device. Then double click the Setup.exe file and it should start installing.

i am unable to view the files in the device.

What means "unable"; what happens when you try?

no...the problem is, when i double click the usb device icon from myComputer, it shows empty content...

i am very sure it should show some files in it (because when i tried it in another fresh new PC, the usb device can show some files in it)...

i suspect this is because i have previously installed and then uninstalled this usb device in my machine, so the next time when i tried to install it, it somehow has some USB information still not cleaned from my machine, and this causes the usb device not showing the files content...

A lot of damage can be done to USB devices by not using the correct method to disconnect them.

With any USB device that is capable of reading and/or writing it is essential to use the "Safely Remove" facility.

I suspect that you may have unplugged the device incorrectly.

Does the device also show empty if you use the DIR command from Command Prompt?

Can you try to look at it with Recuva?
