    How to prevent Windows 10 pro from wanting me to load a CD into my flash drive ?


    Confusing issue. I plug in a flash drive, copy a CD from my music folder, and attempt to paste the music CD into the flash drive using This Computer on win explorer. Then I get a "load CD into drive" error message. The flash drive does engender a disc letter when I plug it into a USB port. Do I need to fiddle with it in Device Manager?Thanks for your time,Bruce B

    CD to flash drive

    Hi Pam,

    There are several ways to copy your pictures from the CD to the Flash drive. One of which is by using the shortcut keys to copy and paste it.

    We suggest following the steps below:

    • Insert the CD and flash drive to your PC.
    • Use Cortana and type File Explorer then click it.
    • Choose This PC.
    • Open the CD drive.
    • If all the pictures are in a specific folder, press Ctrl + A
      on your keyboard to automatically choose all the pictures then, press Ctrl + C to copy it.
    • Afterwards, Open the Flash drive, choose the location where you want to copy the pictures then press
      Ctrl + V to paste it.

    Let us know if you need anything else.

    How to Download Music CD's from External Hard Drive to a Flash Drive on a Lap Top with Windows 10

    Hi Carolyn,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. I will surely help you.

    To understand the issue better, let me know where exactly the Music is saved on? Is it on the CD's or External Hard drive?

    Step 1:

    If it is on the CD's, you may have to copy it the computer first and then copy it the Flash Drive. I suggest you to refer the article to know how to copy music from CD's to computer.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/rip-burn

    Note: Applies to Windows 10.

    Step 2:

    After copying the music to the computer, to move it to the Flash Drive Follow these steps.

    • Select the required songs and
      right-click
      on it.
    • Select copy.
    • Go to the Flash drive and right-click on Free Space.
    • Select Paste.
    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of the issue so that we can assist you further.

    clean possibly infected flash drives and CD-RWs

    Your steps in post #1 should work for 99% of viruses that may be on a usb flash drive. However, there are a very few viruses that can infect the MBR of a drive. I would use Diskpart from a command prompt (Admin) to clean them. In the command prompt type DISKPART then, at the Diskpart prompt use the commands:

    LIST DISKnote the disk number of the usb and use it in place of # in the command:SELECT DISK #
    CLEAN
    CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY

    After this you will have cleaned the partition table from the usb and created a partition using the whole of the the available space. You can then format this partition in File Explorer.


    For a CD-RW, if you right-click on it in File Explorer there is an Erase option.
