I suppose this can be a security measure to block all storage device if its in office premises , if the same happens in home then you will be running an antivirus in which you need to enable the access .

How do i go about accessing my images,music on galsxy s2 via pc


When you connect your cell phone with the supplied USB cable and then connect it to your computer's USB port the computer should detect the cell phone as an USB storage device which you can then open to download to your computer.It this does not work then -
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then removethe memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader.Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of yourworking computer. Your computer will see this as an USB mass storage device oran external storage device, you can then open the folder on the memory card andcopy the photos to your computer.

Can i connect my pc which is acer aspire 4720z to my LCD TV WHICH is LG22LH20R? if so which port/data cable i have to use??


The LCD TV does not have the software installed on it to integrate with the Pen drive. That is why. Pen drives are meant for input and output of data via computers with USB ports. The pieces of software required to make a computer recognize and interact with a Pen drive (or indeed any other external flash, solid state or hard disk drive based external storage devices) are USB and Storage Device Drivers built-into a computer's Operating System. Your TV does not have such drivers installed on it because it does not have an internal Storage Device to interact with external storage devices.
Your notebook can connect to the LCD TVs VGA Port by connecting a VGA Cable from the Port to the Notebooks own VGA Port -> press and hold the Fn key bottom left of the keyboard -> press the Function key at the top of the keyboard bearing the image of two monitors -> release both keys -> use the TV's remote to select Menu -> Input/Source -> PC.

I Using Like USB Storage ,After my Use i done Antivirus Scan then Not apparing And not working Only Blinking Light


Reboot your pc. Check again.
If it's still not working, check if your hardware is recognized: [Windows] Right click on My Computer (on your desktop or in your start menu), then properties. Go to device manager Check if your USB stick is located under USB devices.
If its recognized, check if there is a switch on the hardware itself it that locks it.
[ONLY FOR ADVANCED USERS]: If there is no lock as mentioned above, try to re-initialize the partition using the disk management: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc782513(WS.10).aspx

This solution worked for me when I got the USB device not recognized message:

It can be quite frustrating. I've heard that older computers are more likely to have the USB device not recognized message.

Thinkpad T20 won't recognize usb port


You can get a PCMCIA adapter with 4 USB v.2.0 slots on eBay. It requires power from the USB port on the laptop, but the pigtail connector is included. Works like a charm! Comes from China just like everything else in this country.

Usb ports


You'll want to verify your computer recognizes your usb ports.
In device manager, look to see that you don't have anything with an exclamation mark, question mark, or red X on it. Make sure you have the usb ports listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers. If nothing shows, your usb ports may be dead. Depends on the age of your computer and what might have happened to them.

Device manager- right-click My Computer and go to properties, then select the hardware tab.
