  2. **SOLVED**USB drives not appearing in windows explorer? help please

    As my title says, Im not seeing my usb drives in Windows explorer. i plug them in , there is No sound, no "installing device software", nothing. If i open "my computer" , the progress bar SLOWLY fills up with green, and MAYBE the useless "removeable drive" title will appear, with the right letter, but it isnt any good, because if i click it in ANY way, process explorer freezes. I CAN see the drives i plug in, if I go into Device manager\disc drives. I have tried BOTH Usb 3.0, and 2.0 , annd I have had NO luck. They used to work, but I can think of NO reason why now they do Not. Any useful ideas are Gladly welcomed.**edit** If i have the USB drive plugged in , and try to run Disc manager, it doesnt appear, just a blank window, but if i remove all usb drives, and run it again, viola! it works fine.


    If i touch any of these removable drives my PC's windows explorer will freeze

    **SOLVED**USB drives not appearing in windows explorer? help please

    can you do a scan for viruses and run a SMART scan on your HDD?

    I reccomend
    Hitman or EEK

    and pretty much any HDD program will do but I primarily use gsmart or crystal

    also do the disks show up in disk management?

    only reason i suggest the smart data is because of the slow access time of explorer.

    I suggest the virus scan because i had to deal with a system several months ago that had a trojan that modified files and prevented usb devices from loading.

    I suggest disk manager because using bench machines for data pulls from HDDs would allocate all of my drive letters and windows stopped issuing them even after the drive was removed and there is a way to clear them.
