    Yeah this is problem sometime persists in Windows, the reason behind this is USB stick driver runs always in the top of Windows OS which in sense when your Windows OS boots up the USB stick driver also starts with it. Now when the process gets frozen or stops you will face this problem which can be fixed if you restart your machine once, the reason for it getting frozen is because too much of process been occupied by the processor, now how to overcome this problem? just follow the steps given.

    STEP 1: Go to My Computer right click -> Properties. (Advanced System Settings for Windows 7)

    STEP 2: Go to the “Hardware” tab and select the -> Device Manager or My Computer right click-> Manage.

    STEP 3: Now right click in the top node with your PC name and select “Scan for hardware changes”

    This will trigger the USB driver to run back again and your USB drive will works as usual.

    Note: Avoid opening many process so that you can avoid facing this issue.

    Hello,

    I think the problem of your USB drive is not associated with software.
    But with the hardware.
    Check for the connections sometimes due to excessive use the drive connections becomes loose.
    That can be the problem.

    Or else you can try the software approach by
    doing it from the control panel

    Regards

    hello friend.......

    first you need to check ....either USB driver working ......properly or not

    if it is working properly......then there is a problem with the ports.......to find the problem of ports........ then do this

    1. open run or press windowskey+r and type in that dxdiag and hit enter ......and click yes and there is a window opened......in that choose input tab.

    2. And observe NOTE box if there is a problem ..........with ports it will shows ......other wise it will shows no problems found.

    3.
    If it shows no problems found then there is a hard ware problem of with the ports.........other wise go to device manager

    and check whether the ports are enbled or not.


    THANK YOU

    Hi,
    there might be a problem with your USB slot on you PC or USB of your pendrive.
    Try cleaning the USB slots using a dry cloth.
    If the problem still persists, your pendrive could be probably damaged.
    Time to buy a new pendrive.
    Thank You.

    Hi Friend,

    First check USB Drive is working Properly with the Other System.

    >> If it is working in the Other System then You must check the USB Driver into your System.

    >> So go to Device Manager and Go to USB and Right Click on it and Select Update Driver option.

    >> Now Restart the System.

    >> Now connect the USB Drive and Check it Detected or not.

    I hope your Problem will be Solved.

    All the Best

    Re: How to fix my USB drive in my Windows System? Its not able to read the drive automatically whenever I attach a USB stick?

    Dear,

    There can be different reasons for malfunctioning of USB drive:
    1. The USB drive is not working properly. To perform a test of USB drive, use the USB drive in another computer. There may also be problem with USB ports.
    2. USB drivers can also cause problems. Update the USB drivers of your system. Do not remove the USB drive suddenly during the installation of drivers when you attach USB drive for the first time.
    3. If the pop-up window asking for various options does not appear, you have to change the setting for autoplay option of drive. For doing this: go to Start > Type autoplay and press Enter. Modify the setting for US drive.

    Thanks.

    If your USB device is recognized by the Windows in your system some of the times but fails on other occasions ,
    The reasons may then be ,

    1. The USB port of the computer can be damaged, or loosely connected,
    2. The USB device connector can have issues.
    3. The device driver for the USB port may have issues.

    The first two are hardware problems and can only be fixed by a hardware engineer if they are the real cause.

    For the device driver issue, click Control Panel--System And Security--Device Manager--USB Controller--Driver--Uninstall,
    Then Update Driver to install Latest driver from Microsoft.

    Try them for a fix .
