    I can not open to view my files on my USB external hard drives (80GB and
    larger) or my flash USB drives (1GB to 4 GB) from My Computer or from Windows
    Explorer. I run Vista Home Premium on Inspiron 530. Vista recognizes and
    assigns drive letters to the devices when attached but when I double click or
    right click to open the files Explorer hangs up and eventually returns 'Not
    Responding'. Windows shows the devices as 'working properly' and the drivers
    as up to date. How do I get Windows Explorer to open these external drives
    so I can view, copy, edit, and paste, etc.?
