If you don't have any relevant information on it, you may want to try to format it, plug it to your computer then go My Computer, right click the external drive you wish to repair and select format drive, don't move any of the options and click format. After format should work normally.

Removal of win32mode of hard drives


While researching this problem, it seems that the most likely cause is a virus called FUNNY UST SCANDAL.....it is mostly an annoyance, not too evil, they say.

Please back up your data!

Some people recommend using a noob killer program to kill the virus, but when searching online for one, I come up with very sketchy sites, use at your own risk!

Others have recommended the following site for answers:
http://www.edmartechguide.com/2007/11/funny-ust-scandal-aviexe-remover.html

Then there are these anti virus programs to try, one is free, other a trial, both good:
http://www.eset.com/download/free_trial_download_eav.php

http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

FINALLY.......I found a jumble of instructions to try to fix the problem, and they are as follows.
I have not had this problem myself, but it looks like a messy one, good luck!



Go to Start/Run and type :

reg.exe add "HKCRDriveshell" /ve /d "none" /f

then type:

regsvr32 shell32.dll

If this doesn't work - try this
