USB drives not accessible??

Hey guys, I'm having a problem with my Lenovo laptop. I can plug in a usb drive and it shows in my computer. But when I click on it to open it, I get an error that the drive is not accessible. I've moved a known good thumb drive through multiple ports, as well as a camera I'm trying to get working.
How should I trouble shoot this??

What's your OS?

Instructions will change depending on Win XP/Vista/7 or some other OS like Linux...

Sorry, it's Win7, 64 bit. The error says access is denied, but I can open these drives on another computer.

There could be a couple of things going on here.

Is the computer that can read these drives a Windows Machine?

If so, right-click and check the properties of the USB drives to see what format they are. You will also want to look at the permissions set up on the drives.

Let us know what you come up with.
