windows cannot access the specified device

Sony 8gb micro vault usb flash drive
October 15, 2009 at 14:10:12
Specs: Windows Vista
When I plug in my flashdrive I get an error message
'windows cannot access the specified drive...'

I have drive scanning for errors but nothing has come up
I can still access files but only when I select explore.
Any help would be appreciated

- i posted this here as this happened to a friend of mine and it was caused by a virus

... one of my usb sticks has the same issue but that is caused by an encryption file/folder program (in my case) that is evoked by the autorun.inf file on the "stick", renaming that file will allow access.
