Hello,

May be OS failed to assign a drive letter to your pen drive. Try assigning the drive

letter to your pen drive.

Try this 1.

Click on Start --> Run ---> type diskmgmt.msc and click on OK.

In Disk Management, if you notice your pendrive without any drive letter then

Right-click on your Pen Drive --> Select "Change Drive Letter and Paths..." --->

Click on "Add" button ---> Select your drive letter and click on OK.

Good Luck.
thanks you about the dskmgmt.msc knowledge.i was able to get the data and open my pen drive.but i am not able to create a data path. it is not showing it in 'my computer' even after assigning it a drive name.....any idea
?

hello,
Try once again by assigning a drive letter Q. If the problem still exists, backup your data and format it -->unplug it and plug it back again.
Sorry friend still no luck

Hello,
Try this 1.
Click on start --> run --> type regedt32 and click on OK. First backup your registry by going to file --> export.
At the left side navigate to this location
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
If you see any upperfilter or lowerfilters at the right side delete it.
