Most likely you have a USB device connected to your computer, like a flash or thumb drive,and in some cases you need to click " safely remove device" before removing it to prevent windows from crashing, though with XP or Vista you can just remove it without using the popup. In Windows Millinum you must use the the popup or the desktop will crash

Failure to recognize CD ROM or USB ports


  1. Run Registry Editor (regedit).
  2. Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UsbStor
  3. In the right pane, double click on the Start value name.
  4. Change the value data to 4 to disable the removable USB mass storage device drive access
  5. 5.
  6. To revert and re-enable the drive access for removable USB mass storage device driver, change back the value data for Start to its original default of 3.
The change will take effect immediately to block any USB mass storage device such as USB flash drive, USB key and portable harddisk from been used in the system, while still allowing hardware components to work properly via USB connection. The hack works in most Windows operating system such as Windows Vista, XP, Windows Server 2008, 2003 and 2000.
For user who dare not to modify the registry manually, simply download the following registration entries file to enable or disable the USB drive. Extract the downloaded content in .ZIP format, and then double click on the .REG file to open and apply or merge the registry values to system.

How to use toshiba flash drive 2.0


Follow these steps :
1.1
Plug the flash drive into one of your computer's available USB ports.
2.2
Look for the "Found New Hardware" balloon to pop up in your system tray. When the installation is complete, you can either click the balloon or go to "My Computer" and double-click the flash drive to open it.
3.3
Open the folder containing the data you want to store on the flash drive. Either copy the files and paste them into the flash drive's folder, or drag and drop.
4.4
Click the "safely remove hardware" icon. This is an icon with a green arrow in the system tray in the lower right-hand corner of the screen. When you click it you will see a message that reads "Safely remove USB Mass Storage Device." Click that message box.
5.5
If your flash drive has a light, it will turn off when the drive can be removed. Otherwise, it is safe to remove the drive when the message box goes away. Remove the drive.

Beginning dump of physical memory


This could be pretty complex. The ATAPI.SYS file controls the Hard Drive and CD-Rom Drive. I would recommend reading this MS TechNet article:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822051/ The article says that it's not uncommon for the problem to be caused by faulty memory or by problems in the mass storage controller subsystem, which makes sense since atapi.sys (a mass storage controller system file) is noted.
If you have multiple memory cards in the machine, it might not be a bad idea to take one out and try again. If the fails, keep swapping out memory cards until we either solve the problem, or elimite that as a cause.

Whenever i send any data to pen drive then during that time of interval it shows that data but after ejecting from the pc and after re insurting it shows that file corrupted,please help me now.


I'm assuming you are using Windows, please let me know if you aren't.
The most likely reason is that your device is set to "optimized for performance" and is caching the files, rather than writing them directly to the pen drive. If you use the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon from your system tray to disconnect the drive first does it then save the files properly?
If it does then you can set the device to "Optimized for quick removal" by going into the device manager and double-clicking the device (may be called a USB storage device, or Generic storage device in disk drives) and then under poicies change it to "Optimized for quick removal". This will mean slower performance as the files are written to the device in "real time" rather then being stored in memory, but it should stop them becoming corrupted.

How do I get started using a USB flash drive and how do I set up a security system?


hey, heres something that would help u:  Copying files to a flash drive on a PC:
  1. Open My Computer and see which drives are shown. Most computers, for example, have a hard disk such as a C: drive and a few removable storage devices such as a floppy drive, a CD-ROM drive, and perhaps a zip drive. 
  2. Insert the flash drive into the USB port and watch to see where the USB flash drive appears. Most will appear as removable storage, but some will instead appear as hard drives. Note the name Windows is using to refer to the flash drive ("Removable Disk (G:)," for example).
  3. Open My Documents or the location from which you want to transfer files to the flash drive. Select the files or folders you want to save to the flash drive by left-clicking on them. To select more than one, hold down the CTRL key while you click and select all of the files you wish to save. 
  4. Right-click on the file(s) or folder(s) you selected, then select Send to, then select the name you saw appearing in My Computer for the flash drive ("Removable Disk (G:)," for example).
  5. When the copying is finished, do not immediately remove the flash drive from the USB port. Instead, left-click on the Remove Hardware icon toolbar.gif located in the System Tray. A window containing a list of the USB devices will appear. Left-click on the Safely Remove Mass Storage Device line that matches your flash drive (for example, Safely Remove Mass Storage Device - Drive(G:)). 
  6. When you see the following message appear in the bottom left toolbar, it is, as it says, safe to remove the flash drive from the USB port; you may close the message or ignore it, as it will close itself automatically:

USB Pen Drive


In win 98 eject pen drive before unpluging it.

In later windows use icon near clock ( bottom right of screen ) and stop mass storage device before unpluging it.

That should solve problem.

CD/DVD thinks there's no disk in.


- mass storage device in = SD card.

- The DVD/CD can't recognize any type of disk inserted: Replace the CD-DVD unit, it is with problem.
