You have to be the computers Administrator to change any values on any hardware on a 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.


First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:

Click "Start" button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar and press "Enter". Click "Continue" if necessary.

In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".

Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".

Then, restart your computer and Windows 7 will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.

for xp or earlier

click start right click on computer select properties device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X

you will need to update/reinstall drivers

right click to reinstall drivers

if you can see your usb drive but its not working

ports (com&lpt) right click update driver

If now you can see your usb drive there might not be any need to do the following

Click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes

automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start

you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive

I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box

then you might have restore it to its default status

Right click on usb drive select properties you will have an array of options

Select the hardware option then select your drive properties policies

restore defaults


Right click on your drive select properties then on customize restore Default in W 7

Have 250Gb hard drive. Shows only 127Gb available. Used fdisk to remove and replace partition and reformat drive. No help. Drive is quiet running.

Since you have already posted you are running win xp.
for more info the drive limitations prior to win xp home/pro sp2 is 127 gb.
You can use a seperate partition program for full access to the drive with it being partitioned.
The only way around it is to have win xp home or pro with sp2 already included on the cd.

USB Ports Malfunction

You didn't say which Operating System you are using. Without knowing the OS, Service Pack,or NorthBridge Chip set, this would be hard to fix.

If the System is XP, XP Pro with SP1 or SP2 I would Suggest Upgrading to SP3 release candidate2.

If the usb is failing or hanging then best thing is to update chip set firmware.

Download everest home, open and run, click on the + sign by motherboard, click on chip set, click on northbridge at top of right column and google chipset updates.
