Satellite L675 - 11 H - cannot access and/or played on USB flash drive files

Hi all

I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite L675 - 11H and tried to transfer files from a USB Pendrive on my hard drive from Toshiba. The files were already transferred from my old laptop (HP - XP) on my USB flash drive.

Unable to access the USB flash drive to any of the USB ports that I connect my new laptop flash drive. What could be the problem here? Thank you for your help or tips!

Hey Rush,

Can you post more detailes about this behavior? What happens if you connect your laptop HARD drive, you don't see that Windows installs the drivers for the new USB device or do you have an error message? If you have connected the USB check of Windows disk management if she s recognized there (Control Panel > system and security > administrative tools).

Have you tried other USB devices such as USB mice? If they don t work too the problem might be connected to the USB ports. In this case, you must delete all the USB ports on the Device Manager and restart your laptop. Also the chipset driver update might help.

  • Cannot access a Windows 7 upgrade USB flash drive

    Upgrade from Vista basic to Windows 7 Home Premium computer accepts flash drive but I can't access it. It is correctly stated in devices & Printers but not in my computer as a lettered drive. Read jasmith31 problem, but do not have a Security tab in properties. No error other than "installed device driver. Help please

    Hi lakeside71,

    This problem mainly occurs when windows 7 does not assign a drive letter for your USB drive. It occurs especially with the new flash drives connected to the computer for the first time. Assigning a new drive as such letter should solve the problem.

    Please follow the steps in the article posted by Shekhar on how to achieve this.

    This should be it.

  • Satellite U400-10j - how to boot from a USB flash drive?


    I have a Toshiba Satellite U400-10j.

    I have Ubuntu on my USB flash drive, now I want to boot from it.

    I can't find the option in the BIOS to boot from the Usb flash drive.

    Second, I noticed that the phone also has an internal memory card reader.
    I could load Ubuntu top then to start the memory stick as well?

    Your help will be very appreciated.
    Thank you.

    I think that it s not able to boot from a USB key on this laptop.
    The best way is to use a CD. There, you can start on this notebook and all other laptops.
    In the Internet there are many versions of CD of Ubuntu and other Linux systems.

    And as said Feliks, it s not able to boot from an SD card because it is not in the BIOS.

  • The request cannot be performed because of the I/o device error when opening a USB flash drive

    Original title: USB Flash Drive issues

    So, I tried to open my flash drive on my Dell Inspiron 15 with Windows 8 today to make an assignment. But for some reason some it does not open. This is what appears when I try to open it. I've done many things that are supposed to solve the problem with the ports themselves, but nothing seems to work that makes me think that it is the actual flash player. I don't know what to do all that my University materials are there then I really need to work, or at least find a way to get at least most of my files. Thank you very much for the help in advance.

    Sorry for the late reply Jose. I appreciate your efforts to resolve the issue.

    This can occur because of one or more of the reasons below:
    1. the currently loaded USB driver has become corrupt or unstable.
    2. your PC requires an update for problems that could conflict with a key USB and Windows.
    3. Windows may miss other problems hardware or software updates.
    4. your USB controllers may have become unstable or corrupt.

    Check the disc on another computer flash memory to ensure that the issue is not with the device.

    You can try the methods below:
    Method 1: Uninstall, then reconnect the USB flash drive:
    This method solves the problems where the currently loaded USB driver has become corrupt or unstable.
    1. go in search for, type device manager in the search box
    2. click on Device Manager in the returned list.
    3. click on disk in the list of hardware drives
    4. right click on the USB with the question and click on uninstall.
    5. once the flash player is uninstalled, unplug it.
    6. wait 1 minute and then reconnect the USB flash drive. The driver should load automatically.
    7. look for the USB key in Windows Explorer

    Method 2: Reinstall the USB controllers.
    This method addresses the steps where the USB driver currently loaded became unstable or corrupted.
    1. click on start, type device manager in the start search box, and then click Device Manager.
    2. expand Bus USB controllers. Right click on a device, and then click on uninstall. Repeat for each device.
    3. Once complete, restart your computer. Your USB controllers will automatically install.

    I hope this helps to solve the issue. If you still have the same problem, get back to us.

  • Windows Explorer stops working whenever I have connect a USB flash drive and try to access

    Hello. I use Windows Vista.

    I had a particular problem. Whenever I have plug in a USB key and try and access it, I get a pop saying "Windows Explorer has stopped working." the file is closed. If I wait a long time (i.e. 10 seconds), I might be able to get into the drive without any problems, but even when there is no guarantee. The problem persists in each USB slot I use. In addition, it is not that the computer is not able to detect it. It can detect and identify that it is a USB flash drive. It's just that whenever I try to access (or the folders inside the flash player), windows Explorer stops working and restarts.

    Does anyone have this problem before? And any help is appreciated. Thank you.

    The mistake made reference the MSVCR80.dll, which is a Microsoft file, but it may be another third party file, causing the problem.

    If so, can you uninstall DivX and see if the error resolves.

  • cannot get rid of the "removable disk" in "my computer" and "Device Manager", after incorrectly removing a USB flash drive

    I stupidly, twice - after using USB flash drives - just shot when he in fact without removing them properly. Now, they are listed at all times in my 'Device Manager' and in 'my computer '. I went into Device Manager and tried to uninstall them. It seemed to work but the next time I booted up Vista found drivers and now they are back in 'my computer' and Device Manager. This does not seem to be a problem, but I would like to get rid of them.

  • Strange behavior USB Flash Drive Satellite A100-626


    I did install Windows Vista Business Edition on my Satellite A100-626 (PSAA9) following the instructions provided in the Web page of drivers.

    So far, everything works as expected, except for one little (or no) question.

    When I ask Vista to 'Remove hardware safely' my USB Flash drive, a Popup appears telling me to remove it. So far, so good :D

    The only thing is that the flash player is not put out as could be expected and and yellow question mark appears in Device Manager.

    Opening of the question mark can read what follows:

    "Windows cannot use this hardware device because it has been developed to remove safely, but it has not been removed from the computer. (Code 47) To resolve this issue, disconnect the device from your computer and plug it in again. »

    Following the instructions above, the light turns off, lol...

    Someone else met this strange behavior? If so, any solution?

    I tried a few USB flashes that run well on XP and they both do the same thing.

    Thank you, Nuno!

    Hi Nuno

    It's very strange. I have the Satellite A100-504 (comes with Windows XP Home edition). Last week, I installed Vista and all the stuff followed Toshiba document instructions facilities. I use the mouse wireless, external HDD USB web cam. With the help of these external devices together I never noticed a similar behavior.

    You have the same situation with all the USB ports?

  • Windows 7 USB Flash drive - if I click on Scan and difficulty after you insert the disk, it erases my files

    Original title: Windows 7 USB/Flash drive problems

    In Windows 7, if I plug in my USB drive, the message box appears titled ' do you want to scan and difficulty of removable disk (e :))?»  If I click on Scan and Fix, he deletes my files (or so I thought).  I hope that the files are still there and I have simply can't see because the drive is FAT32 and not NTFS (it says that most of the drive is NOT of free space, so I assume that the files are still there).  What should I do to see / access files?

    Note: A reader, I never selected "Scan and repair"... so I can still see/access files.
    On the other drive, however, the first time I plugged it on Windows 7, I clicked Scan and Fix and it erased all the files on this drive (I guess).  This of course got me very angry.

    Hi MichaelGramm,

    It seems that the file format has been corrupted. You might consider formatting the drive in NTFS file system and check if this solves the problem. For Windows 7, the best choice for hard disks is NTFS.

    Note: Make sure that you back up the data before formatting the disk.

    See these articles for more information on formatting disks and flash player:

    Create and format a hard disk partition


    Formatting disks and drives: frequently asked questions



    Formatting erases all existing files on a flash drive. If you format a flash disk that has files on it, the files will be deleted.

    Hope this information helps.

    good day... I have problem with all the USB flash drive... before, I can see flash drives in my computer and browse its content but now Windows does not show it in workstation.  Windows can still recognize flash drives but it will show under devices instead of workstation.  However, when I tried to browse the content of the flash player, I received this message: "this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.  Please contact your system administrator. "Because of this restriction, I can no longer navigate and access my files in my flash drive.  I check my user account and see that I am, log in as an administrator.

    I tried the solution to uninstall and reinstall the USB controllers and editing the registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\USBSTOR 'start = 3'), but nothing helped.  The problem is still there.  I can still access the files in my flash disk.  Moreover, my flash drives work perfectly well on other computers.

    Hi thafaceface,

    Welcome to the forum.

    Before reinstalling Windows, I suggest you to check the system files are they work very well or not and to check who are trying to run the (SFC) System File Checker tool.

    Scan SFC will be scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with appropriate Microsoft versions.

    How to use the System File Checker tool to fix the system files missing or corrupted on Windows Vista or Windows 7

    • Go to Start, click all programs and open the Accessories.
    • Right-click on command prompt in the list programs, and then select run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click OK.
    • In the command prompt, type the following command and press ENTER:
    • sfc/scannow
