Win10 and USB? [Resolved]
« on: December 08, 2015, 09:29:51 PM »
I'm running Win10 v10.0.10586 and for some reason I can't access any flash drives at all. Any ideas?  ???

Yes!   The all purpose triangle with an exclamation mark.
         I have tried to update the drivers but the drivers are already up-to-date.  ???

Did you check the manufacturer websites for W10 drivers?

This might sound strange but, last night when I shut down my laptop Windows had an update.
