USB Mass Storage Device problem

I have the HP Pavilion Elite E9120f desktop computer. Whenever I start the computer, it shows that I have USB mass storage drives, G, H, I and J. However, there is no attached USB mass storage device. No one knows why this happens? I just usually click on the removal of the safety equipment and remove false devices. I get the message "this device can now be deleted without the computer problem. This machine runs Vista and has a 1 terabyte of hard drive. Thank you

Bart, have you checked in 'My Computer' when this happens to see if the drives are there?  Almost looks like you have a virtual drive on your computer program.  Check also in start/startup to see if he is there that nothing listed that could cause this to happen.  Four readers Ghost is really strange.

  • USB mass storage device problems

    In recent weeks, I was unable to read the files on an SD card and a USB key.  For both the SD card and thumb drive, a pop-up message says the card is not formatted and asks me if I want to format it.  Both drives work fine in another computer Windows XP and a Vista computer, are formatted and data on them.

    Device Manager shows no conflicts.  I tried to uninstall everything under "In Bus USB controllers", but the problem persists.

  • Impossible to safely remove external USB HDD - ejection of mass storage device problem

    Hello

    I have a 250 toshiba external hard drive. "When I go safely remove device and click on stop, guests me that ' ejection of mass storage device problem and try later.

    Is there a reason for this? As I have heard it is dangerous to pull the cord without stopping it first.

    This happens usually when something is always access to the USB - HDD.
    Yes, it s dangerous to pull on the cable, because you can lose some data and the file system may be damaged. But if you have a situation where you need the drive to take with you and want to just get out the cable to the USB port there is a little trick to disconnect the security apparatus:

    Do right click on 'My Computer'-> click on Hardware-> click "devicemanager"-> go into "diskdrives"-> then you need to click on the drive that is your USB - HDD-> with the right button and then click on 'Properties'-> in the menu properties of this drive, you must go on "policies" and click on "optimize for quick removal"-> and then click OK and exit this menu and all-> perform a reboot-> closing information fact. :)

    After that, it s safe for remove you your drive even if it s not ejected. :)

    Hey everybody,

    Just like everyone else, I get a pop-up message when trying to eject my external hard drive WD: "problem ejecting USB Mass Storage Device. Windows can't stop... "and so on." This does not work when I've only sailed on the disk, but it does, for example, when I made a mistake - check or make a backup. I already checked the forums, but unlike everyone else, third-party programs do not work for me.
    I did the following:

    -closed open task

    -disabled virus scanner

    -used Unlocker and Process Explorer, but he can't find any process that locks my drive. What happens here?

    -rebooted in safe mode

    -disabled indexing

    It makes me crazy that I have to restart whenever I want my drive to eject.

    Oh, and I use Windows 7.

    Can someone help me solve this problem?

When you unplug the devices of storage, such as USB flash drives, you should be sure that the computer has finished saving all the information on the device before removing it. If the device has an activity light, wait a few seconds after the light has finished flashing before unplugging.

    If you see the icon remove the device safely in to the far right of the taskbar notification area, you can use this to ensure that devices have finished all operations in progress and are ready to remove. Click the icon and you will see a list of devices. Click the device you want to remove.

    You can use any USB port when you plug in a device you have installed beforehand. However, the first time you connect a device to a particular port, Windows will install the driver for this device again.

    Are you sure that the USB is not bad? Also have you tried on some other computer USB3 ports to see if those who can see the drive? Looks like your USB is not USB3 if it can read the disk HARD USB3 but not the USB3 Flash in question. Also make sure that your laptop ports are USB3 ports? In the contrary case, we owe this: to check if the ports are USB3...

    Hi Troy382438,

    1. is this startup crashes before windows loads?

    2. you have SP2 installed on your computer?

    If windows hangs at the POST (Power-on-self-test), you may need to update the drivers from the motherboard.

    If windows crashes after windows loads, you can try the following steps.

    Step 1

    Install SP2 if it is not installed.

  • "This USB mass storage device can transfer information faster if you connect it to a USB 3.0 port Superspeed ' when the device is already connected to a USB 3.0 port.

    I just bought and installed a USB 3.0 card. It is the Startech PEXUSB3S2 PCIe card. I installed the card in a PCIe 2.0 X 1 slot. The manual says it's exactly the slot, that it supports.

    The Manager device displays NEC Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller and NEC Electronics USB 3.0 Root Hub are installed and are working correctly. I have a Thermaltake BLACX5G 5 G USB 3.0 hard drive caddy. The transfer rate is only 35 MB/s using the HDTune benchmark. It is a USB 2.0 speed.

    When the player is turned on, windows displays the message "this USB mass storage device can transfer information faster if you connect it to a Super speed USB 3.0 port»

    For some reason, the system doesn't see the caddy to drive USB 3.0 as being plugged into a USB 3.0 port, when it actually is.

    I remember having this same problem with Windows XP, when I bought a USB 2.0 card. The only thing that fixed it at the time was upgraded to XP SP2.

    This should not be a problem because I know that Windows 7 pro 64-bit supports USB 3.0.

    My motherboard is an ASUS P5QL-EM support an Intel Core 2 Quad and 4 GB of DDR2 memory. According to the manual owner the PCIe x 1 slots support architecture 1.0 and 2.0.

    Edit: I just tested the external hard drive and expansion card USB 3.0 on my motherboard Gigabyte of friends running Windows XP. Everything worked perfectly, no problems at all.

    Here, there is a problem with Windows 7 or the motherboard. Still unresolved, currently installs a floppy drive so I can update the firmware of my motherboard.

    I checked the implementation of the card several times, removed and installed in another motherboard to test, then removed and reinstalled again in my motherboard ASUS check several times for a fit course.  It still does not work. I have just completed update the firmware of the motherboard with the latest version, and I also did a new install of Windows 7, install the drivers USB 3.0 immediately after installing Windows over. None of this solves the problem.

    I'm running out of ideas on how to fix this without doing something drastic as a replacement for my motherboard. I don't want the speed of USB 3.0, but I don't think I'm ready for an another two or three hundred dollars to get it.

    I've been all over the ' net trying to find a solution and read tons about USB USB 3.0 specifically and in general. I can find no reason why the drivers would install and report that they are working correctly, but fail to connect to 3.0 speeds. I think that this would generate a certain type of error instead of such a strange symptom.

    EDIT:

    Here go us. I knew that is was a bad idea to buy one main (ASUS P5QL-EM) card that had to be overclocked to 1066 MHz for DRAM memory. I did all this work, and every time I reset my BIOS or updated it would always be the frequency DRAM back to where it should be (1066). After a reset of the computer was the starter and I just let it start instead of setting the DRAM frequency and, suddenly, USB 3.0 card worked perfectly. I confirmed this by setting the frequency to 1066 and looking at the USB 3.0 card fail again. I guess it must have something to do with the clock being sent to the PCIe bus.

    In any case, the USB 3.0 card works perfectly and gives me a transfer rate HD Tune to 99 MB/s on a drive from WD SATA 7200 RPM and 86.1 Mbps on a Samsung drive hard 5400 RPM / MIN 3,5 "SATA. These are the same reference points I get when these drives are connected to my internal SATA connectors. I'd say USB 3.o works perfectly now and maxing out the hard drives performance.

    Thanks for any help.
