    USB memory stick issues


    I have a very strange problem with a Lexar 128GB USB.
    When I plug it into my PC (windows 10 pro) it shows up in File Explorer and I can copy files from it but I cannot write to it.
    The USB stick works perfectly in my laptop, ie read/write with no problem
    The USB port in my PC is fine because I can use it to read/write to any other USB
    In my PC when I run the Disc Management app the USB appears and is listed as working properly
    In Device Manager the USB is listed as ‘working properly’ and when I search for new drivers Windows reports that I have the most current driver.
    With the PC if I attempt to format it after a long time a dialog display appears that says that Windows is unable to format it. In my laptop I can format it with no issues.
    Can somebody tell me what is going on.
    Thanks in advance

    :)

    Hello Steve,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    We regret the inconvenience caused to you. We will be glad to assist you with your issue.

    • Does the issue occur when u try with different USB drive?
    • Did you install all the pending Windows update?

    I suggest you to first try and check with different USB Memory stick and check if the same issue occurs. Also try using your current USB memory stick in different USB port and check. Also install all the pending Windows
    updates and check. You can also try using the Memory stick on another system and check if its working fine.

    For now, you can try updating the drivers of the Memory Stick and check if it helps:

    Follow the steps to update drivers from the Device Manager:

    1. Right click on
    Start button, select Device Manager andEnter.

    2. Find the drivers which needs to be installed and also see if there are any warning symbols. If yes update the drivers.

    3. Right click on the Memory stich device and click on
    Update driver.

    Unable to select 'Action required' for a new Memory Stick - Win10

    Hi,

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused with the memory stick.

    This issue might have occurred if not tried on other USB ports or if the chipset drivers are not updated.

    What is the make/mode of your computer?

    I suggest you to try it again on the same USB port or another port. Ensure that the memory stick is connected properly.

    Also update your chipset drivers and check.

    You may run the hardware and device troubleshooter and check if it fixes the issue.


    • Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    • Click view all in the left panel.

    • Select ‘Hardware and devices' and follow the on-screen instructions.
    Hope it helps. Keep us posted on the memory stick issue. We are happy to help!
