    No access on HDD's and USB flash drives


    Hello.

    Because i do not know if there is a specific term for the problem i'm facing with access, to look for possible solutions, i open this thread and forgive me if there is already a thread with the same problem.

    I do not have access to any of the extra hard disks and flash drives.
    The only hard drive that i normally access is C.
    If i change the letter of the disc, i will have access, but after restarting, again the same.
    What can i do about this please?

    :)

    USB Flash Drive or Ex HDD?

    Go with the external HDD. Though it's size is bigger, it is safer than USB flash drive. Also you will get more storage.

    USB Flash drive made bootable

    Hi Nelson,

    Check if there is any slide switch on the side that provides write protection. It show's a closed and open lock on each side. We suggest to follow these steps below:

    • Insert the USB flash drive into the USB port.
    • Click Start, type devmgmt.msc in the Search textbox and press Enter.
    • Find Disk Drives and expand it.
    • Find the USB flash drive you want to format, and double-click it. It opens the
      Properties dialog box.
    • Click Policies tab.
    • By default, the Optimize for quick removal option selected, switch it to Optimize for performance and then press
      OK.
    • Now open Computer. Right click on the USB Flash Drive and select Format. The Format dialog box now appears.
    • Select NTFS in the File System field.
    • Press Start and wait while the process will be completed.

    You can also connect the USB drive on a different computer and try formatting.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Boot linux on USB drive

    it might just be that your bios doesn't support it, but it should anyway.

    make sure you go into the bios and make sure "boot other device" is enabled and try seeing if the usb is listed as an hdd.. as bootable flash drives are usually picked up as usb hdd's and check if your bios detects the flash drive.
