    weird file on usb drive


    xMjkYE.exe 641 kb on a usb drive.

    scanned with norton and malwarebytes no bad result.
    tried to delete it and it said I needed admin permission even though I
    was on the admin account at the time.
    tried taking ownership ....same result.

    any ideas?
    thanks

    :)

    help. USB drive isn't assigned a drive letter.

    Any usb flash drive I plug into my computer isn't assigned a drive letter. The physical drive shows in the "safely remove hardware" but it doesnt show up in disk management. I have tried to populate the volume thru the safely remove hardware properties window and it does pop up in the list but it doesn't stay there. This isn't a format or assign a letter problem. It's more complicated then that. Maybe one of the services needed for usb drive management was disabled? Suggestions needed. btw external usb harddrives work fine.

  3. USB doesn't display MP4 file!


    I have a 300kb mix of .png, .jpg, .pdf files on a 4Gb USB drive. I added a 2Gb MP4 movie but it doesn't display in the drive files. I used CCleaner to check the drive F files .. it only shows up as 2Gb of OTHER FILES, but not in the listed files.

    Any (constructive) suggestions welcome. I can't remove it as it doesn't show in the file list.

    weird file on usb drive

    please insert a disc into the usb drive

    Hi,

    It seems that your USB is having an issue. We suggest running Check Disk to find and repair errors in the USB drive. To do so, please follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X and then select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Copy and paste chkdsk E: /f, then hit Enter.

    Please use chkdsk E: command to check the integrity of your USB drive.

    Note: Change "E:" to the USB drive letter you're using.

    Let us know the result.
