My Vista 64 bit laptop suddenly wants to format every flash drive (sticks and SD photo cards) I put in it. The drives work in other computers (and my photos appear when I put the SD cards in my camera).
I have tried all the solutions I have found on similar threads, i.e. uninstalled all usb drivers
and sd card controllers in Device Manager and let them reload with a new start, and scanned for viruses with MS Essentials and Malewarebytes (full scans with each).
Note: non-flash devices still work in the usb ports (standard HDDs, and mice).
Thanks for helping in advance.
