To protect USB flash drives, there are a number of free products available, two of which are the Bitdefender USB Immunizer and the Panda USB Vaccine.

 

I hope this helps.  Stay safe out there in cyberspace.  Have a great day.

Neither of those products are designed to scan.  They are designed to prevent autorun infections and prevent the USB flash drive from becoming infected by plugging it into an infected computer.

 

For scanning of external media, you can use conventional anti-virus and anti-malware products.

 

You may wish to consult these posts by quietman7, one of the foremost computer security experts here at Bleeping Computer, about choosing an anti-virus and an anti-malware product(s).  You will note that Emsisoft Anti-Malware includes both the Bitdefender anti-virus engine and their own anti-malware engine in one product.

 

Personally I use Bitdefender 2018 Total Security and Malwarebytes Premium to provide comprehensive real-time protection.  The choice of security solution(s) is very much a personal decision, based on preferences, resource load on your computer, user interface, detection rates, remediation capabilities, etc.  No one product, or combination of products, is "right" for every user.

 

I hope this helps.  Have a great day.
