All USBs failing with error code -32
« on: June 08, 2020, 11:01:45 PM »
I've had this virus on my computer that keeps overwriting robocopy.exe and presumably other things. After a few failed attempts to find it with a BitDefender system scan, I decided to run Rescue Mode. When I boot into Tiny Core, however, there are lots of errors in the console about all of my USB ports (including my mouse and keyboard) failing with the error code -32. Do you have any advice on how to fix this? Thanks, ~Daniel

It sounds like you are using a rescue cd/dvd/usb-stick based on a customised version of tinycorelinux - if this is the case, please ask the supplier for help.

Either a bios bug, or you have some bad hardware connected, shorting out an usb port etc.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hi danieldigital
Either a bios bug, or you have some bad hardware connected, shorting out an usb port etc.
Try shutting off the machine and unplug any USB devices (keyboard, mouse , hub, etc.) you have connected. Turn the machine on
and see if any of the errors go away.
