Hi can anyone help? Mu Husband uses an external drive on his machine and uSB memory sticks. Yesterday they suddenly stopped working, with the compuiter saying cannot find device it may be malfunctioning. I treid the external drive and the memory stick in my computer and they worked fine. I have done a scan of his computer and a SFC /scan now and nothing showed up. I was just about to take the machine and drive to a repair shop when I needed to use my external drive, Suddenly my one has stopped working too. So to prove a point I put the external drive in my laptop and it is giving the same messages. So now I have 3 computers that wont recognise any USB memort stick or either of our 2 external drives. I have anti virus on all machines.
The only thing I can think of that all machines have in common is that Windows done updates today. Is it possible these updates have some sort of blip in them? HELP 3 computers and cnnot do any work.
