If your USB drive has a virus, then you should not plug it into any computer or other device that does not have a virus application installed, such as Norton, McAfee, or TrendMicro. You can then use the virus application to scan the USB drive, and delete or fix any infected files, while also removing the virus.

Hello. My USB device will show as a FAT 32, empty?

I am running Windows 7, 64 bit. It started as not showing the files that I know are contained in the USB; now the device will not even mount, even though I have tried different computers. I have tried the command prompt sequence, downloaded a couple of USB fix software, but to no avail.

Took the USB to an i-cafe to print, came back defunct?

All of the folders disappeared and were replaced by a funny looking shortcut which I deleted. Properties show same volume of used space, and files must be there, just hidden. Used the command prompt with attrib plus string of -s etc., command prompt froze. Don't know that it is different, just working on it.
