    WIn 10 PC makes frequent USB Install tones

    I have a Patriot 256GB flash drive. If I leave it in, my PC will make frequent pinging sounds, the same sounds that I hear when I first insert the flash drive. Does anyone know why this happens, is there a setting that I need to shut off?

    Dodgy connection? Try it in a different USB port. You could try copying a large file from it and see if the copy operation fails when you hear the sound.

    It may also mean you need to find updated USB chipset drivers. I had to do that on a new PC I buily for my in-laws. Same behavior and that was the fix.
