I thought blinking was self explanatory. Ok, when you have Windows Explorer open all drives are solid where my two thumb drives are blinking like lights on a router. I can access the data on them but because of the blinking, it take more than a double click sometimes to access the drives. It doesn't effect my hard drives just my ability to click on sub-menus within Windows.
ex: If I go into 'All Programs' and click on my Microsoft Office folder, the second I move the mouse to click on an application or sub-menu it closes due to the blinking. Same also goes if I try to click Switch User or Restart. If I'm fast enough I can click on one of these but I have to be fast or the blinking stops what I'm trying to do.
I believe because of the blinking, Windows thinks I'm trying to open one of the thumb drives and stops me clicking on a sub-menu or anything like it as in the example. Once I eject those two drives, I'm good. If I add the two drives back with Windows open, I'm good. This only happens when I either start my PC or restart it.
