I recently encountered a virus that some how disabled my computer from seeing a few USB flash drives that were inserted into its USB slot. I know the USB slots work because I have tried with other devices, mice,ect...
I am 100% sure my computer is clean. So I assume to problem lies with the flash drive itself. I think if I can use a disk manager on it I can reformat the drive, thus erasing what ever is on it. I am using windows vista 32-bit.
I have seen similar questions on this but the only fixes require the computer so see the drive.
Question is this, how can I force my computer to "talk" to something it can't see? Disk manager only appears with drives that it can see. Is there a way to specify a USB port to attempt a connection. For instance "mount" USB port # X. Since this problem keep reoccurring I need a technical fix not a "put the flash drive in a ___ to erase that data and start again."
Will not mount on any computer or OS I have tired, Windows, Linux, Ubuntu, Mac
