Your flash drive might have caught virus or viruses that corrupted your files, thus, needed to reformat and can't be open...else, u can't use your flash drive anymore and may cause total lost of data in the near future....the only choice t continue using your drive is to reformatting it. But the consequence of it is the data that you are having right now will be deleted. Be careful for viruses next time...thank u!

Its not open the 2GB MICROSD SD-C02G TAIWAN


Files on a flash drive canbe corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon andthen click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flashdrive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive to working order you 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: -

Hello Dear

#1
Insert your ( memory card , flash disk , cellphone , .... ) into your computer.
#2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
#6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Drive wil not allow coping with 1.8 GB open


Not sure why it won't copy anything to the drive, but you can try formatting it and then copying to it once the format is finished.

Plug the device in, then open "My Computer" and right click on the drive letter that is assigned to the flash drive, then click "format" and leave all the options alone.

A quick format should be all that's necessary. If this doesn't work, I'll have to let another Expert take over.
