Hi there.
at my work place we have XP machines with a Active Directory network.
Some of the staff members are having problems where, when they plug in their external hard drive or USB thumb drive it shows up as a folder (in my computer) and you cannot open it - or it opens up empty...
any reason into why this keeps happening?
and what the fix is?

Hello,

Try this 1.

1. Download USB Fix to your desktop (choose server 2 for English)

http://pagesperso-orange.fr/nostools/usbfix.html

2. Connect all of your removal drives including Pendrive

3. Double click on the icon

4. Choose option 2

5. Your PC will reboot

6. Leave the tool run

7. After clean-up a report will be located : C:\UsbFix.txt

Note : Some antivirus softwares detects that application as virus, you can ignore

that message or if you failed to run that application then disable your

antivirus for temporary.

Thanks to Ambucias for this solution.
