    I need to reformat the Kingston 2GB flash drive because when I saved some files on a computer running Mac OS9 the files seemed to be translated to PC format.  I wish to reformat the drive so it will work with Mac but the software on the Mac won't let me do so.


    P.S. This is a work related computer.  I personally HATE Mac's!

Sorry, but this is one of those cases where you will NOT like the solution. Normally, you would have to format it and lose all the data, because yanking it during a file transfer will screw it up REAL BAD, and a format is the only solution. You can try this, but thee is no guaantee it will work, because i havent tried it. Plug your USB in, and right click it. Select explore instead of open (if it gives you that option) and pull the files out that way. Once again, there is NO GUARANTEE THIS WILL WORK. So PLZ don't give me a bad rating if it doesn't.

The directory is corrupted and unreadable


The most common cause of this is removing the USB drive without clicking "Safely remove hardware" in the task bar. Especially if data is being written to the drive, this can result in corrupt files and may make the drive unusable.

I'm sorry to say the data may be unrecoverable--ALWAYS make backups!

Two things to try before you write-off the data as lost forever.

One: Try booting the computer in SAFE mode and see if you can pull files off the USB Drive--you may have to give the drive administrative privileges.

Two: Download and run the trial version of the BadCopy data recovery program at this link:

http://www.jufsoft.com/badcopy/

To make the drive usable again, find it in My Computer, RIGHT click on it and click "Format." The choose "Quick" format. A quick format should make it usable again.

If the BadCopy program could find no files to recover: After the quick format, you may be able to pull some of the files off simply in windows. If not, run BadCopy again: It just may find some files after the quick format.

A full format erases ALL data which may remain on the drive. Only use quick format if you expect to recover anything.

Good Luck!

How can open my pendrive without format


Files on a flash drive can be corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon and then click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flash drive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive you may need to format the flash drive, but you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: -

N70 virus or something else


hey dude,
if it is trying to send messages automatically, i m sure ur cell phone is infected by virus.
To remove virus, install a antivirus application. If u want any application, contact me at my id (sajwhat_2003@yahoo.com).
If putting antivirus cant repair it. I recommend u to format ur phone memory as well as memory card. Formatting it, brings ur phone to the condition like as just bought free of viruses.
To format phone memory :
1) turn off the phone,
2) press n hold three buttons (green dial button+*+3) at once and turn on the phone.
3) Hold these buttons until formatting screen appears. After formatting it, u will be asked for restart.
Similarly, for formatting memory card(MMC),
1) Go Menu->extras->memory.
2) In option, choose format memory card.
3) It will automatically be formatted.

Warning: But ur phone must have minimum of 75% charge.
And dont forget to backup ur contacts & essential datas before formatting phone n MMC.
===============================================
Send me a feedback and rate my solution too.
Dont forget to post a clarification request after it is solved .
