What model Drive is it? What version of Windows are you using?

What is the exact error given?

sony USB flash 2.0 , mine is windows xp and I opened it at w2k,

if it is a word document it says:

"Word experienced an error trying to open the file.
Try these suggestions:
*Check the file permissions for the document or drive.
*Make sure there is sufficient memory and disk space.
*Open the file with the text recovery converter.

DO you have multiple Operating systems on your computer?

If those files were created on WinXP, you may need to set permissions on that drive for access from 2k.

Has that problem just started with windows 2000?

thanks for the site jrzycrim,
one other problem I have is that when I try to stop the device it says "the device cannot be stopped right now, try to stop the device later.

No problem :)
Was it a file permission problem after all?

I'm not sure about the stopping problem. I'll have to look around for cause/solution.

If you have any files or windows open for that drive, that might be one reason. Close all windows and files first and then try.

Another reason might be because of the recycle bin. Try this:
1 Right-click the Recycle Bin and select Properties.
2 Click the Configure drive independently option.
3 Click the USB drive tab.
4 Click the Do not move files to the Recycle Bin. Remove files immediatly when deleted option.
5 Click OK

Note: Files deleted from the USB drive will no longer be in the recycle bin, but will be deleted immediatly.
