Computer not opening USB's

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Heyy guys,

my mums having a few troubles with her computer and i have no idea how to fix it.

everytime she plugs in a usb, it comes up like normal but wont open...
then she asked me to have a look (this was like 5 months ago) and i opened it on hers, and then mine and it worked only on mine...

but my mum only recently deleted my profile on that computer because i have my own computer.

it shows that its there... but you cant access it.

shes using windows 7 ultimate 64x

Front or back usb? Do you usually remove usbs via the safely remove icon at the bottom right.

Another thing, does it never open when you hook up the usb to ANY of the usb ports on her computer?

I was going to say something is trying to be run via an autorun.inf on the drive but then I saw windows 7, so there goes that idea.

I'd suggest a back up of everything important on it and format it. If that doesn't work it might be a problem with the PC, and I don't think this is a hardware issue.
