I was attempting to back up a file on a memory stick when I got this error that pups up every 15min. I had started a back up but mistakenly realized I was backing up the windows when all I wanted to do was copy/back up a certain file. I cancelled back up as it was happening and then proceeded to copy the file I needed for my accountant on the memory stick. The error disc name is Hitachi HTS545050A7E380 ATA Device.
I read stuff on the forum when I googled it that it could be a bad drive or memory flash. I am using a SanDisc 32gb. I was attempting to read a file from before on the card and couldn't access it. Kept saying file not found even when I could see it on the memory stick. The strange thing is when I plugged in the memory stick I thought it should ask for a password to open anything but it never did.
Can someone tell me what I should do and how to get rid of this message? I had no issues with my laptop before I used the memory stick to do what I needed to do.
