    Strange thing happening. I need help. Recently messages keep popping up saying drive X (card reader, external backup, etc) needs to be formatted....do I want to format it now (btw if I click format it won't). Going back several days before this happened via system restore does not remove problem. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium. No software additions up to 2 weeks before this started. Only hardtware added was a Lite-on BD drive....which the included program and Windows 7 said was installed correctly. It works fine. If I right click on the explorer folder on the task bar and click "close all windows", it will go away-for a while. I don't know ifremoving the drive and reinstalling is called for or whether this is caused by something else. Can anyone help?
