No light means inf file most likely missing and currently I don't know exactly how to get that back when it's on a vista machine
or XP machine sinse XP machine will see it just fine even if vista doesn't , but thats not always the rule

the good news is it's not broken and don't give up

soon as I find a fix for it , I'll certanly post it up for you

what I do know is the format usb read/write format tool from the sandisk site can't work in vista if vista can't see the durn thing

so I may get lucky and get it repaird on my XP pro nforce2 machine

let me check that right now

this mess of course requires I log into xp as Administrator
a lovely ordeal you can use tweakUI for it or a manuel registry edit if you have XP pro

I prefure the hot fast and nasty direct registry edit to get the
Administrator account up on the welcome screen , it works
double word value Administrator decimal value 1

I'm very sorry this is such a long post but it's a complex matter
full of confusion you'll deffinately need to set a pass word
for the Administrator account or the sandisk tool will throw a fit

well I've just confirmed that the sandisk usb-test-tool does not work even after I went through all that mess

it claims it can't see the stick or I don't have administrator rights
which we know is a complete lie , thank you sandisk for nothing

I probably just saved you some time

if I find a solution I'll post it , at this point I suspect it's vista's fault like everything else is lol

I need a smoke and I'm very sorry I didn't solve this but it means one step closer to a solution

do not give up. thats the rule in computers , do not give up

Hi amanvirdi198

The problem seems to be an infection of a virus which has changed the icon of your removable drive and also when you open it up you get the "open with" option by default.

Please follow the below instructions.

  • Select show all files option from the folder options which you find in the start menu the path is :-Start - Control Panel - Tools menu - Folder options.
  • In folder options go in the view tab and select show hidden and system files.
  • Once you are done selecting this option , all you need to do is open your removable drive by right clicking on it and select the 'Open' Option , Or if that does not work use the explore option as you have been doing already .
  • You will find that the hard disk now shows up the contents, so you need to find the autorun.inf file in the root drive , once you find it , you have to 'delete' that file, also delete any suspicious hidden .exe file which is in hidden state and of a small size , which is nothing but a virus which spreads as soon as you plug in your external hard drive and the autorun.inf file get's executed automatically.
  • Therefore once when you delete the autorun file , you should have your hard drive working properly.
  • The above method was the manual method , now if you want to delete the autorun problem automatically via a software , i recommend you to download autorun virus killer by clicking on this link http://bit.ly/k3dOve

Hope this helps...:)

Your feed back would be appreciated.

Hi
Possible reason is
that your pendrive Contains
An autorun.inf file pointing to a *.exe file(possiblly a virus)

So either you run a scan with good antivirus
or
You can delete the file manually by


> Goto>> Run>>Type the drive letter of your pendrive and follow a full colon(Eg: "C:")
then just enter
now if you cant see the autorun.inf file
you go to folder options to change the view
that is (go to tab view )

1. tick "show hidden files and folders "
2. Untick " Hide operating system files"
Apply it

now you will see the autorun.inf file just delete it

It will solve your problem

I use a cruzer 4GB to go between my Mac & my work PC. Now, on windows, it says I have a possible worm virus. When connected to my Mac - there is no virus. Something to do with something called...


I believe that Windows is having an issue with the information in the autorun.inf file.

The entire sequence is initiated when the "disk change notifcation" polling discovers a new disk in the CD or DVD ROM drive. Then, if the "Auto insert notification" feature is enabled (it is by default), Windows checks in the new disk's root directory for the existence of an "autorun.inf" file. If found, Windows then reads and follows the specific instructions this file defines. If no autorun.inf file is found, then Windows refers to the new disk by its serial number and executes the default actions associated with the (data or audio) content on the disk.

My suggestion would be to delete the autorun.inf file as it is not needed.

My Book (G:) icon is different


Hi,
no you there iss no big problem.
The icon of your hdd iss created from the autorun.inf

http://www.fiveanddime.net/notes/hd-icons.html

Change hard drive icons Change hard drive icons:

To change the icon for your hard drive, create the
following file in notepad:


[autorun]
icon=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Pifmgr.dll,36

Notice it's two lines.
If your hard drive is C:
click Save As... and navigate to C:
and save it as autorun.inf
enclose it in quotes so Notepad won't put a .txt
on the end of it
The path specified is the typical Windows path
yours may vary, but you'll have that dll file.
The 36 at the end is the number of the icon I chose.
(Icons in a file are numbered, starting at 0.)
To see the change, open Windows Explorer; click
F5 if needed to refresh.
To preview your icon options, select an icon on
your desktop, right-click and select
Properties, then Change Icon. You can also select
any other .dll file in your computer, although most
won't have icons.
The common Windows icons are in
C:\Windows\System\shell32.dll
(xp = C:\Windows\System32\shell32.dll)
You can also point to a single icon.
Using the example above:


[autorun]
icon=c:\windows\cursors\myicon.ico

I have three hard drives and nine partitions; under
WinMe, I had to move the icon/dll to each
partition and edit the autorun.ini, i.e.
C:\Windows\System\Pifmgr.dll,32 became Pifmgr.dll,32.
WinMe also wouldn't let me change the icons
for the primary partitions of the first two
drives, but did let me change the
primary partition icon of the third drive.

Unable to open Pendrive


Your pen drive is infected by a virus/worm. I have two solutions for this -   > If you have WinRAR software, just open up the pen drive using this and delete "autorun.inf" from it.  OR  > Use any good antivirus software and scan your pen drive, and disinfect the pen drive from any virus/worms. Remove your pen drive, and insert it again. It'll work fine.

Autorun file


hi.. well firstly your external hd does not require an autorun.inf file to function. autorun.inf files are used to instruct the computer to perform a certin task on connecting or inserting a a disc. This is used by software vendors to automatically run a setup program (or any app) so it will be user friends. basically you insert the disc and it runs automatically. A virus will use this method on external media like hd's and usb drives or flash drives to automatically execute themselves to infect the host system. There should not be a file as such on your ext hd. Thankfully your antivirus is doing its job :)

ABOUT MY 2GB PEN DRIVE WARRANTY


Here's what you should do. actually I prefer using DOS to do this. ok, so fire up the DOS and goto C:
this virus actually put two files on each partition that It will infect, autorun.inf and the .vbs file which contains the code of the virus. currently the attributes of these two files are hidden, read-only and system. so using attrib command, type:
attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf
attrib -h -r -s m*.vbs
del m*.vbs
del auto*.inf

also look for the windows folder and look for the other .vbs file of the virus and change its attribute.

not yet done.

activate your task manager(ctrl-alt-del) and look for wscript.exe, you should end this task.

take not you must do this in every partition or flashdisk that have been infected. Take note you should also check the registry since this virus append it's .vbs to the [Run] field of the registry and also it alters the Title of your Internet Explorer to Hacked by Godzilla.

after your done, you need to reboot your system.
