WTF is this "insert a disk into your USB drive"
Not so long ago we inserted the USB drive with stuff on it into the laptop, opened up, and we could read, up- or download files etc.
Now, when I insert a drive into my laptop I get this weird message "insert a disk into your USB drive" and no way to work with the drive.
There is no DVD or CD input on my laptop, never was.

No, it's not working when plugged in?

I was wondering if your computer can see the drive, but not recognize it as readable/writeable.

You may need to format it and recreate a file system - windows NTFS or fat32. Linux ext2,3,4 xfs, btrfs,fat NTFS Mac- hfs, apfs, fat

Or if you need to make an bootable image, iso

Solid state storage has the worst data retention lifespan of modern storage media. You actually run up against quantum states where bits can get flipped by electron trapping or bottlenecking. For long term private data storage, backing up to tape is still a thing. There are compliance guidelines like SOX that demand some sort of precautionary measures. Most folks back up to cloud or you have fibre channel attached storage appliances with LUNS carved out. I still see RAIDS on spinning disk shelves for redundancy as well.

Open Disk Management and see if the drive is initialized or if the partition is recognized.

Re: WTF is this "insert a disk into your USB drive"
Without seeing It, it probably means the computer is only seeing the USB controller not the flash memory inside. This means either

the data/file system is corrupted

or

physical damage/failure.

If the data is important to you better hope it is the first option as there is a chance you can do a data recovery proceedure on it.

If you are not experienced with data recovery do not attempt it yourself. Big chance you'll fuck it up and lose the lot.

Take it to a pro, and yes its expensive

But do a restart of device, try another USB port and try on another device before you panic

Re: WTF is this "insert a disk into your USB drive"
I got the same message. I just learned to ignore that crap.
The CD drive still works.

I'm still running Windows 7.
I'd run XP if it supported the hardware.
