Sir ur anti virus may not be able to detect the virus and as u say that u have tried reformatting i think there could be some bad sectors in ur portable storage device. so u might want to take it to a service centre. i can provide u with a service centre address if u tell me ur location.

This is due to the virus problem , go to folder option check view hidden files options, also check show protected files option there you can see all your files on pendrive, scan you pen drive and system to a updated antivirus

How to fransfer data from laptop to pendrive


First turn on your computer.

Once your computer and operating system are up and running, then plug the USB pen drive into an empty USB slot on your laptop.

You may have to wait a few moments while your computer detects this device and automatically installs the appropriate drivers for it, which should take no more than 30 seconds or so.

Now just click on the MY COMPUTER icon on your desktop or navigate there manually.

Look in the section titled DEVICES WITH REMOVABLE STORAGE.

You should see your USB removable flash drive listed somewhere in that section. Just double click on its icon to open it up.

Now that the USB pen drive folder is open, you can just COPY and PASTE, or DRAG and DROP any document or file from your computer into that USB pen drive folder the same way you would transfer files to any other folder on your computer.

To copy files, just RIGHT mouse click on the file you want to copy, then select COPY from the drop down menu.

Then just RIGHT mouse click anywhere in the USB pen drive folder and select the PASTE option from the drop down menu.


Once all your files are copied, just close the USB pen drive folder.

Then click on the SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE icon in the lower right hand corner of your taskbar at the bottom of the screen. Select the USB removable pen drive option and then wait for it to say that it is now safe to remove the USB pen drive.

Then just remove your USB pen drive by pulling it straight out of the computer's USB slot.

I hope that was helpful.

Good luck and take care.

Joe.

I BOUGHT A USED I/O MAGIC DIGITAL FRAME WITHOUT INSTRUCTIONS, HOW DO i LOAD IT WITH PICS?


Hi, as regular digital frames, they bring read several interfaces to upload the pictures, such as xD, SmartMedia, Memory Stick, Pen drives USB, or connect to the computer thru USB connector (just like a printer). So what you can do is either buy a pen drive (or jump drive) and copy the pictures on your computer to the pen drive and then remove it and connect it to the digital frame. (it may select the source automatically or you have to select it from the menu). If you tell me the memory type your camera uses I can tell you more specific. I hope this helps

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.
