Devices don't show up

PostPosted by Falcon » Mon Nov 22, 2010 5:54 pm

Hi, I have a problem.
I don't know any other forum that could help me an since you guys know so much, I thought you might be able to help me. Anyway here's the problem: Whenever I connect a USB stick to my NetBook, I can't access it. I mean when I use Windows Explorer or go to My Computer, it doesn't show up. I can see my HDD and everything, just not the USB Stick. This also happens when I connect an external DVD drive. The Computer reconizes the Stick. When I want to safely remove the stick, it shows up that's it's there. I just can't access it. This might be because I accidentally deleted some files wich may have been important (as I wanted to clean up my disk). Can anyone help? :cry:

Try to repair your windows 2000 using the install CD with the repair function.

Or try to installt your USB device using the hardwaremanager and search for a driver-disk or cd

If that doesn't help you have to reinstall windows 2000.

Note: Never try to celan up your windows folder at your own. Us a programm like ccelaner or something similar

Best regards

Sorry for not mentioning, but I have Windows XP on my Netbook. I installed a app, that creates a shortcut to the USB stick, whenever it is plugged in. It appears on the Desktop and disapears when device is unplugged again. When I tried it, the shortcut was created BUT when I clicked it, nothing happened! So it must be a driver issue or something or some missing program that allows to access anything that is plugged into the PC. Do you know wich program this might be?
