|Ok, thumb drives are inaccessible when I have my wireless adapter plugged in.|
I use a Belkin F7D4101 wireless adapter for my laptop as the built-in wireless does not stay connected to my router. Everything worked fine for months. I only started having this problem a few weeks ago.
When the Belkin adapter is plugged into a USB port (any port) the other available USB ports will not read any of my thumb drives (they either do not show up at all or they do show up but they show up as having no data on them). As soon as I unplug the Belkin adapter and plug in any of my thumb drives, they show up with all the data and can be accessed.
I reinstalled the Belkin software numerous times. There is obviously some conflict but I'm not very computer literate and don't know how to resolve this issue.
