My Windows XP laptop is working fine except one thing, USB Drives. Whenever I connect any Pendrive or Portable HDD with this system, it assigns them a drive letter but when I try to open the same, it gives me an error message saying ďDisk is not formattedí. Damn, these drives are working fine on all other PCs. I tried few workarounds to fix the same, yet getting the same result. I just canít format my drives as they donít need to be formatted and there are various important data. Also am sure problem is not with these drives because am getting the same error with all USB drives only on this laptop.
But the surprising part is that devices (other than storage) like webcam, printer, digicam, etc are working without any problem. Than whats the problem with my storage drives ? Also, I tried a pendrive not having important data with this system. I thought lets see if it works after formatting. I connected the same, got the same error saying to format, I tried formatting the drive but guess what, I cannot do that as well.
Hope I explained my problem perfectly. Any help will be appreciated.
