I recently traveled to vietnam and used an internet cafe to burn picture cds with my Memory Stick Pro memory cards. The photos weren't showing up properly in Explorer, and I asked the shopkeeper for help. "Oh yeah, it's just a virus." Grrrrrrreat. She was able to access the photos only by using the folder tree view, and clicking the '+' symbols to the actual directory. Lo and behold, upon returning, I have a similar problem. When I first inserted the memory cards into my All-in-one memory reader, I saw Norton flash something about W32Silly. With the two cards I used at the cafe, when Autoplay runs it comes up completely blank. In 'My Computer,' the drive with the pictures has the icon of an unassociated file, and if I try to access the drive it brings up a box asking to choose a program to open it. However, if I use the folder tree view from windows explorer, I can access the photos, and the cards still work fine in the camera. The problem doesn't seem to have spread to my other cards. I've scanned my computer as well as the cards individually, but no sign of the 'Silly' worm.
I haven't noticed any other issues with my computer other than the CD/DVD drive acting flaky, but I need more experimentation to determine the fault there.
If you can help my memory cards work correctly and ensure there isn't an underlying infection, I'd be much obliged. Thank you!!!
