    Try out a latest antivirus. Avast is great. And use right click open to open drive as not to activate the virus again. And next time dont forget to check any removable drives especially Pendrives before opening it. Take Care

If somone is still looking for the solution here it is:

- First check for viruses, then delete them. Be sure to also delete the autorun.ini file along with the virus. Most likely the virus has copied itself on each drive, so repeat the process for each drive. (Be sure to check the "show hidden files" option from the folder options, so that you maybe able to delete the autorun file which may not be detected by your anti virus program.)

I was having the same problem. There was this virus I deleted it but forgot to delete the autorun.ini file. After deleting the autorun file, the problem completely finished.

- Another (rather annoying) solution is that when the open with window appears, open the drive with internet explorer, it will work same as windows explorer.

- Another (rather time consuming) solution is that first backup all data on the drive, (only the visible files, not the hidden ones, except if its a system drive, ) then, format the drive. Now put the data baack on the drive. Your problem will be most likely gone.

- How to format a drive: (Note that all files will be deleted after format, thats why be sure to backup the data.) Right click on the drive, select the format option. There are no settings to change. Just format the drive using FAT 32 file system. Dont format your C drive. Instead, you can easy reinstall Windows in short time.

What's your problem? cd drive won't open

if you have warranty - contact the repair center, if not, open the case and check if the power plug of the Cd/DVD drive is all the way in. unplug it an then plug it back in again.
If that doesn't help - buy a new drive. they are like 30$ nowdays and install it the same way in like the one that doesn't work was installed.

Please tell how to open the case.


How do you know the drive is no good?

Lets get real now ...

Dont be so hasty to tear this up. What is the point anyway ... the drive is worth about $100.00 - the case about 80 cents. What are you saving by opening the case?

Did you buy this in the last 30 or so days? If BB will not talk to you ... did you use a credit card to purchase, call the CC company and tell them what happened.

I think the CC company will help you.

Thanks for using

Positive comments welcome

Pen drive not open

Try this - Start -> Run -> G: or H: (what ever drive it picks up).

If it opens then there is virus called autorun.ini in your pen drive.
