  • Hi,

    Please try the following methods:

    Method 1: (If autorun.inf file is present)

    Go to control panel then folder options. Press tab view and check view hidden files and folders.

    Then go to the device not opening and explore it. Look if you see autorun.inf and if present delete it. Then disconnect usb device from system and reconnect it.

    Method 2: (If autorun.inf file isn't present)

    Go to command prompt and write the following.

    attrib -s -r -h X:\autorun.inf

    press enter and then write

    del X:\autorun.inf

    press enter and after this disconnect usb device from system and reconnect it.

    Note: Please notice that X means the drive letter (F:\, G:\, etc).

    Regards,
