USB port problems?

By monisha2011 ·
my computer says to format my usb drive everytime i insert it and then says that it cannot be formatted and i cannot use the usb drive anymore on my computer. I have tried different USB drives and all the USB ports of the computer but same problem prevails. But the same USB drives work on my laptop. When i check properties of the USB drive on the computer they show 0 bytes empty and 0 bytes used space though there are data stored in the USB drive. How can i solve this problem

Sounds as if your computer has some OS

That is unable to read the USB Device Partitions.

So what OS is involved here and have you tried installing the necessary Partition Converter to your computer?

Apple OSX systems seem to do this a lot with non Apple USB Devices.
