Start->run->type "cmd" without qutotes.

D:\dir /a (shall all hidden files and directories)
see whether autorun.inf is there or not. I hope it will be there.

D:\attrib -h -s -r autorun.inf
D:\del autorun.inf

Like wise delete autorun.inf for other drives
And after that only restart the sytem. and double click it will open normally.

Do it in cmd mode only.

Hey gaurav, this problem happens only when there's a virus on the drive. Use Avast antivirus to delete all **** out.

you get it for free on and once you register on the site, they send you the serial to your mailbox.

Just for free doesn't mean that its weak, or something.

I've tried norton, mcafee, and the like....and all have failed in front of Avast!

And no, i'm not advertising here...All major tech houses recommend it (Digit, Chip magazines in india).

Does my Maxtor back up my iphotos?

Run a time machine backup. Then the easiest way would be to find a photo that you are willing to delete in iPhoto.

Jot down the name of the photo file, delete it. Then empty the trash.

Then go into time machine, try to search for that file, when you locate it, restore it. If you can then there is probably a good chance that you time machine backup is good.

To be on the safe side why not create a manual backup.

You'll find the iPhoto Library at:


"username" will be your name that appears when you login to the computer.

  1. To get there, double-click the icon for your hard drive to open it, then double-click the Users folder. Double-click your Home folder, which is identified by a house icon and your username, and then double-click the Pictures folder to open it.
        1. Inside the Pictures folder you'll see a file called iPhoto Library. Copy the iPhoto Library file to a location other than your hard drive, such as your Maxtor external hard drive.

My desk top crashed and I have all my files backed up on a Maxtor 3200. How do I down load my backup files from my Maxtor 3200 to my new lap top. I can't find any paper work for it.


Just plug into your laptop and find the drive for it, then enter into the files that you want to put on your laptop.
Copy and paste these files into your laptop hard drive, don't cut and paste just copy and paste them.

That way you will always have them incase your laptop should go down.

Hope this helped.

When i try to open any drive or any other application a dialog box 'open with' appears why this happens ,how do i solve this problem?

This is problem with registry, there is some sort of corrupt data in your registry which can be cleaned by registry repair.

By the way you can open your drive by using explorer drop down address bar.
