    Thank you for help
    I tried almost everything, including uninstall and reinstall motherboard drivers, USB drivers, netframe drivers, tried mass storage devices of various models and capacity, but problems are same: devise manager shows USB mass storage device, but in my computer there is no removable device. I don't know what to do next. May be its some BIOS problems?  
    Best regards,
    merab.

Hi,
Delete the USB devices in Device Manager and again connect your USB device.Let it rediscover your USB device.

If you dont know how to delete USB device then check following steps.

1) Right Click on 'My Computer' icon on your desktop and select properties.
2) Now select 'Hardware' tab and click on 'Device Manager'
3) You will see the USB device as a mass storage device.Uninstall that device.


Thanks

Hi im josh in cebu phils. may i help you? Friend if it says it is ready to use it means that the software for that device is working but the problem is do the device is open for working. to check wether the device is working and ready go to the bios setup utility and go to pheripherals then see if the usb on board is enable.you enable it if not. or try to see your usb cable if you are using one wether it has no cut line because these may cause the problem so as the usb device itself. thats all good luck hope i helped you.

I have a usb flash drive which when i try to write to it or delete files it tells me it is write protected and i must remove the write protection first. can you help



USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

also:
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
hope this helps:

Bios setup error


Unplug ALL Usb devices, that includes printers, cameras, pen drives, i.e. anything that plugs into a USB connector. Then try rebooting your computer. I bet your problem will no longer exist, but if it does, then you need to suspect a faulty USB connector on the motherboard or USB chipset located on the motherboard. Once the computer is booting normally without USB devices hooked up, you can start installing ONE Usb device at a time, until you find your defective USB device. The USB device drivers will need to be installed and computer rebooted at least once between the various devices. Not doing so will lead to confusion as to which USB device is causing your high current problem. It is also possible athough a bit unlikely that this procedure will cure your situation for the time being but look out for it in the future because it could be an early sign that one of your USB devices is going bad.
