Pen drive access denied


USB ports and devices make connecting to another computing device convenient.
USB technology has been around since 1996, and is a feature found on most modern computing devices.
If your device is denied access to one of its USB features, do some troubleshooting to isolate and resolve the problem.
Viruses
Some computers come with a security feature that automatically denies access to a USB device, such as a flash drive, if harmful content is detected.
Installing an anti-virus software application and regularly scanning the computer and any connected USB devices can help you avoid experiencing denied access to a USB device.
Avoid opening USB flash drive files that you cannot identify or do not recognize, as these types of files are how viruses find their way onto unprotected computers.

Incompatibility

Inserting an incompatible device into your computer's USB port can also cause you to be denied access to your device's USB features.
For instance, if your computer supports USB 1.0 technology and you insert a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 connector, the computer can experience interfacing problems that may cause a "USB access denied" prompt or situation.
If other USB devices begin to malfunction after inserting an incompatible USB cable into your computer, turning the computer off and back on again may resolve the situation.



Formatting
USB flash drives, also known as pen or thumb drives, are among the most common types of USB devices used in conjunction with computers.
Most USB flash drives are formatted using one of three types of formatting methods: FAT16, FAT32 or NTFS.
If you've formatted a USB flash drive using one method, used it on the computer and then reformatted the drive using another method, you can be denied access to the flash drive through the computer's USB port.
Wiping the flash drive clean and reformatting it again can resolve this type of problem.

Considerations

Many computer accessories, including printers and pointing devices, connect through the machine's USB ports and can interface interchangeably with multiple computing devices.
This feature increases the risks of picking up viruses and experiencing unauthorized reformatting. Limiting the amount of computers your USB devices accesses can help you avoid these situations.
Damaged USB cables can also make it impossible to access USB devices when they are connected to your computer.
USB cable damage usually occurs at the points where the cable and its connectors meet. Replace any damaged USB cables.
You have to be the computers administrator to change any values on any hard drive on your computer.
Click start control panel user accounts on the users tab click the name of the computer Administrator you must have full control.
Click start click to open on my computer you should see your usb drive could be E: or something right click select properties there will be an array of options
select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box then click permissions make sure you have all 3 boxes ticked full control changes and read in windows 7
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.

Installed secondary sata hard drive. systems recognizes drive but cannot gain access. tried adv sharing settings as administrator but keep getting access denied. tried to reformat but permission denied....


Is the drive at the correct level i.e. FAT32, NTFS in the case of windows, ext2, ext3, ext4 and others for linux. depends on what OS was used previously on this drive. Try to use an OS that supports the drives file system, but since you mention formatting try accessing the drive in the bios and perform a low level format. If it is connected to a raid controller settings in the raid controller will need to be made (normally on servers).

I repaired the viruses found but when I tried to open my flash drive it doesn't work, the computer says, ''Access is Denied''. What should I do? please help me, got many important files in it.


Were the viruses you found on your local hard drive or on your flash drive? Do a virus scan of your flash drive to be sure. Not sure what program you're using, but make sure you tell it specifically to scan that drive, otherwise it will just scan your C: drive, and that won't help.

I would also try accessing the flash drive from a command line. Click Start --> Run... and type cmd
In the black window that pops up, type the letter name of the flash drive, like e: and hit enter. If your prompt changes to E:\ your files are intact. If you get an error like "access is denied" again, then you'll have to get more creative. Truthfully it sounds like there's just more virus cleanup to be done.

If you're in a pinch, you could download something like Ubuntu, create a boot CD (it comes with instructions), and boot your computer into Ubuntu (without installing it). Once you've loaded Ubuntu, you should be able to see all the files on your flash drive and copy them to another device.

Hope this helps you! If so, please leave a rating!
