!Hello. My problem is that i want to learn,how to convert a file from a pen drive to burn a dvd.

There are several ways, copy the information to the desktop in a new folder and then burn your DVD's as you always did. Another way is to have your burner program browse you pen drive letter "E" or whatever (in the bottom make sure to indicate show all files) and select the files you want to copy on the DVD and again burn as usual.
Just open you DVD burner program first and browse for the files select (Highlight) them and hit the pointing down green arrow or the Add button. If you need more help on actually using your DVD program, just ask.
Hope this answers your question

These days PC viruses have become very common therefore, there are several instances when after inserting your flash drive in an infected PC, you end up not seeing your files anymore. It can also take place after scanning your flash drive with certain anti-virus programs. This normally happens a lot with folders. Many people after showing hidden files, if they still don't see them, think that they are gone. No they are not. I have solved a lot of such problems for people. Here's what to do: Download 'WinRAR' software for free on the internet. An example is http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar390.exe 1. Now double click and follow the instructions to install. 2. Be sure that you have inserted the affected flash drive in usb port. 3. Click the start button and go to programs. And then to WinRAR. 4. When WinRAR opens, use the drop down arrow to select your flash drive. 5. After selecting it, you will see that all your 'missing' folders and files are showing (except the files that were removed because they were infected by viruses). 6. Now you cannot right-click and copy so you would have to use control+c to copy. 7. Create a folder on a different drive that you would copy the files that you need into. 8. Now, in the WinRAR, you can open any folder that you need by highlighting all or a selected number of files and use control+c to copy and then paste them in your created folder ( by either right-clicking and selecting paste or using control+v). I recommend that you recreate the folders that you have on the flash drive using the same folder names and then copy only files into them. This is because, files always show when copied but folders do not always show when copied. You can then wipe your flash drive and recopy the retrieved files/folders into it. That is all. You have successfully recovered your files. Hope this was helpful. All the best.

Unable to open Pendrive

Your pen drive is infected by a virus/worm. I have two solutions for this -   > If you have WinRAR software, just open up the pen drive using this and delete "autorun.inf" from it.  OR  > Use any good antivirus software and scan your pen drive, and disinfect the pen drive from any virus/worms. Remove your pen drive, and insert it again. It'll work fine.

Get this program:

You might need to get winrar from http://www.rarlab.com/
to open the rar file.

Extract all the files to a new folder, run the exe file and click the or disable Radio button and close the program.

Now remove the pen drive and plug it back in to the USB slot, Now open my computer and try to create a new folder in the pen drive, you can't. You get an error. That's what you wanted right? :-)
