    Problem copying files from USB to Mac?

    My Mac runs with Lion OS and now I just connected a pen drive which as some files copied from the my friends system and now whenever I try to copy the files into Mac and try to open, it just gives the error for opening file and says the file is damaged but I am sure that it is copied properly. What might be the issue now? Is there anyway I can fix this problem?

    Dear Friend..

    Such kind of problem occurs only when there is some virus in system or in a USB.
    When you connect it to any device, it corrupts them all and not allow to open them again.

    All this happens when there is no anti-virus in your device.
    So i suggest you to kindly download an anti-virus which are compatible with Mac OS and sort this issue.
    These anti-virus are:-

    1. Norton Anti-Virus for Mac
    2. Avast Edition for Mac
    3. Kaspersky for Mac
    4. Panda Security.
    5. Sophos.

    Al these Anti-Virus are compatible with Mac. Once you install in your Mac, then connect a USB with Mac and don't open before scanning the USB.
    Just scan the USB first and when the scanning is complete, remove all the virus from the USB and then copy the files into Mac. This is the actual procedure to secure and copy the Data.

    Hope this help you,
    Thank you..
