It's surely an error with my laptop, but I checked the USB ports, all are enabled. I think all I should have to do is take ownership of the drive ,but I cannot figure out a way to get the security tab to show up.

It is a FAT32 volume correct? folder and files on a FAT32 folder DON'T HAVE AN OWNER so take ownership is irrelevant.

FAT32 folder have no security tab. This is because there's no security on a FAT32 volume.
