    Pan drive or pen drive?
    If pen drive, do you have any mapped drives? If yes, change the pen drive letter to Z: or even b: . Alternatively you could change the CD/DVD drive to Z: and the pen drive would uthen use the previous CD/DVD drive letter.

      When you try to open do you get Access Denied only or also the Open With Tab ?
      This might also be due to presence of Virus in the Drive.
      Please scan the drive with a good antivirus software.
