I am having problem with all usb ports (2 in front and 2 in rear of computer). Devices were working properly at one time. Now when I plug in memory stick or other devices (i.e. digital camera download connector) to ANY of the ports, I get this message.
"Disk not formatted...The Disk in Drive E is not formated....Format Yes No" The stick and camera all work properly on my office computer.
Computer troubleshooter indicates that the device in enabled and is working properly.
Also recieve message in lower tool bar...: ! virtual expander....Drive (E) : Automatic compression is ON."

I know that the software for some usb drives has an automatic compression function; however, I don't know if yours is an option or required for your hardware. Anyway, try uninstalling and reinstalling the software and look carefully for any option to turn it off. OR, if it works on another PC, then the software is probably not even required so just ditch it and see what happens.
