Usually, when i plug in my USB memory stick, it recognizes it as the G: drive. Now it no longer opens automatically and when i try to open it under "computer" the F: drive pops up. When i try to open the F: drive, it says "please insert removable disk (F)". every time i plug my usb stick into my computer, regardless of the usb port i use, it says the same message (F: drive). what can i do? my dissertation work is on this memory stick and I absolutely NEED these data. Please help. Thanks in advance
Try inserting your memory stick then go to device manager and look for any USB device with a yellow pling against it or simply delete all USB devices, remove the memory stick restart computer and then reinsert memory stick it should now work if the cause of the problem was a faulty driver.
