Try Taking Ownership;
I have a PC running Windows XP Pro
Service Pack 3.
My PC divided into two parts - Linux and Windows XP.
My USB drive(Pen drive) and cd drive worked fine in linux but not working in windows XP.
This problem starts one week ago.
Whenever I try to access media in my DVD-RW drive and USB drive(in Windows XP) I get the following:
'F: \ is not accessible. Access is denied' (my DVD-RW drive)
'H: \ is not accessible. Access is denied' (my USB drive)
I have a problem with my PC, whereby I cannot access my USB or CD or DVD. The USB drive and DVD works fine on other PC's but cannot seem to work on one of my PC's. I get the following message, "G:\is not accessible Access Denied".
When plugging a removable storage device (iPod, flash stick, anything) into one of the USB ports & DVD in DVD drive, Windows recognizes there is a removable storage device, identifies it. The computer detects the USB drive and CD but data on pen drive or CD is not visible.
When I now look at the properties, it says the drive is 0 bytes used space and 0 bytes free space. I took it to a friend?s place and he could see all files etc.
Also I tried format it said: ?You do not have sufficient rights to perform this operation?
I am the local administrator to the system and I never set up permissions to the drive.
When I try to scan H:\ or F:\ drive with ESET NOD32 version 4 it showed: ?H:\ or F:\ - error opening?.
Spent long hours trawling the net without a result.
I'm sure anyone has more of a clue than me on this one!
Plz help me guys?.
Appreciate any help,
