Sounds like the flash drive or your USB port is having problems. I would try the flash drive on a friend's computer . If it does the same , then it is the flash drive. If it works on your friend's computer, then it's the USB ports on your PC. If it is your PC, let me know. If it's the flash drive, then you need to replace it or depending where and when you bought it., it may be under MFG. warranty.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Wen i download a file and then try to open the file it just keeps sayin this program cant be run in dos mode how do i fix it


Does the file end in .exe?
It sounds like you have downloaded a Windows executable to a Macintosh system, and when you click on it it opens in the text editor, which displays the binary contents of the program, which usually contains the message "This program cannot be run in DOS mode."
Windows executables cannot be run on Macintosh computers unless you have also installed Windows, either under Boot Camp or under a virtual machine monitor such as Parallels or Fusion.

Hi,

Would you try to format your flash drive using this software which I uploaded HERE. Download and unzip the file. Then run the exe file.

Do the followings:


- First plug in your micro-sd card into you PC using USB cable.

- Run the downloaded "HPUSBFW_2.2.3_MASTER.exe" file.

- In the program menu window, select the device (your flash drive).

- Select FAT32 as file system,

- Confirm that all the format options unchecked. (Uncheck the quick format option)

- And click the "Start" button to begin formatting.


- Then restart your computer to recognize your flash drive. Or from control panel, go to Add devices menu and search your flash drive to find and add.

Hope this helps.

Hi i got gx270 and i made a bootable acronis disk director on a flash so i can format ntfs to fat 32 as i tried before to install win xp from a flash drive but got a stop message sayin i should check...


First of all I have to ask why you are trying to load FAT32 instead of NTFS. NTFS is the preferred file system for all Operating Systems after Windows 2000. Also, you cannot format the hard drive through the Windows XP installation for larger than a 32 GB partition. If you need a larger partition, I suggest using a floppy drive with the3 WinME bootdisk loaded on it. You can get it here:
Try the WinMe bootdisk from http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

If the above is not the issue than we can move forward with other solutions.

Good Luck,

Unable to format the cruser pendrive


Far too often these little things have an almost invisible read/write protect button on them. Look carefully, over the entire surface of the USB Flash Drive. You might have this switch turned to Write Protect, which means there is nothing you can do, until you turn it the other way, and allow the device to be written to.

Cheers!
