    Odd problem with USB device Broken Error

    I have a faulty 64Gb USB stick and every time iI insert it I get the Broken device not recognised error and I click the error off. Occasionally the message pops up after about five minutes that the device is installed and it is recognised as a valid USB device; but it has 0 bytes memory??? I gave up and removed the USB Stick. Then I noticed something odd when I tried to Play a video on YouTube; the same thing happened playing an audio file... The Speaker Icon in The Notification section of the Task bar is meant to allow you to set the system volume etc.. The volume was too high even when turned down in the You Tube or Audio player. So I went to the Volume icon and it was gone. The only way I could get it back was to restart the Computer. Why should a USB Device error remove the Volume control? Windows 10 is getting quirkier by the day. It's not a real issue; but I would love to know the connection to the Unknown/Faulty USB device error and Sound control. Anyone? And before you ask...No I have not Updated to the Anniversary Update yet. (and after seeing the issues people are having I don't want to)

    Sorry about Your Problems

    But this is one solution to help you out with your usb ( note this is not related to you speakers or sound system )

    Install Gparted reboot live CD you usb should be inserted

    format / delete and make new drive with NTFS and Switch from 4096 to 8192 bytes

    this way if there was any virus or any thing on that usb Gparted should take care of it

    Use this Link or just go to google and search for Gparted

    Good luck
