It happened to my thumb drive as well. What I did is to run an antivirus software first. Then connected it to a different usb port in my computer and did a format. You may also try connecting it to another computer.

Hope this helps!

Telikin bios


They run on Linux. There is a BIOS, but I don't know if it's locked out though.
The Telikin Freedom looks like a full laptop
  • Intel Quad Core 1.83GHz Processor
  • 4GB SDRAM
  • 500GB hard drive
It should run any modern windows.

The other ones listed are very low specs.
Telikin Breeze
  • Intel dual core 1.8GHz processor
  • 2GB SDRAM
  • 16GB solid state drive
Telikin Silver
  • Intel J1900 Celeron Quad Core processor, 2.4GHz
  • 2GB DDR3 Memory
  • 32GB Solid State drive
Unless you can find a way to upgrade the SSD,
Windows 7 fills up 30GB by itself, 8/8.1/10 are also out of the question. None of these work well with only 2GB memory either.
You might be able to run Windows XP on the 32GB Silver.

Having corrupt files errors, tried chkdsk it states read mode only


When you run CHKDSK/F from windows, a reboot is required to scan and fix the errors as it must run in DOS or it can't work properly.
Try again or better still, format with the system file and copy CHKDSK from your windows to a USB storage device or CD and run it from there. If the device or CD is formatted as a bootable device, the notebook should boot from it in DOS and run correctly.
Hope this helps

Upgraded from Vista Premium to Windows 7 now my Factory Image Recovery is no longer available. I tried to revover from the PC Restorer folder on my D drive. I get the window allowing me to do a full format...


ok when you upgrade to windows 7 all of your files are in a folder called windows.old.
go to my computer select your drive then go to windows folder. there you will see windows.old
you will need to do a migration to transfer you old data to the new os system.
it is very common that people do not migrate their files after upgrading to windows 7.
you will need to install usmt> user state migration tool. the folder your speacking of does not allow you to do a full format while the hard disk is in use.
you will need to migrate.

How to format a verbatim Store "n" Go part# 95401? I am looking for the software for reformatting it and can not find it.


  1. If you’ve used the device before, make sure you’ve gotteneverything off of the drive you need. You’ll be reformatting it. (Theapplication may have an option that allows you to keep the data – Idon’t remember – but better safe than sorry.)
  2. Plug in the drive – the U3 launchpad will load. You can close theU3 tour program and whatever main window pops up if you like, but leavethe U3 launchpad icon in the system tray enabled (i.e. don’t exit thelaunchpad application entirely).
  3. Download SanDisk’s U3 Launchpad Removal Tool (opens in new window) – as the site says, make sure the USB device is plugged in and Launchpad is still running.
  4. Run the tool, and choose the option which completely removes U3 and formats the drive.
Voilà, you now have a regular old USB drive which you can break in any way you want.
(NOTE: If the SanDisk tool above doesn’t work for you, you might try the uninstall tool from u3.com – I had no trouble with the SanDisk tool, but I can only speak for myself!)

I have a 4gb sandisk micro sdhc with adapter and the computer freezes when i have it in the sd drive.I have a hp pavilion a1 a1203w. Is there anything i can do?? Please Help


I had a similar problem not long ago. The SD and SDHC standards are different. SD only goes up to 2GB, and SDHC (high capacity) goes higher than 2GB. THe problem is that SD card readers aren't capable of reading SDHC cards, even though the card will physically fit into the card reader slot. When you insert an SDHC card into an SD card reader, the reader attempts to read the format, and locks up the OS while trying. You'll need to get an SDHC card reader and use it separately like through a USB port or something.

Sandisk 16 GB USB Drive wont accept large files says disk is full


What is the USB drive formatted as? Look in My Computer then right click the USB drive, select Properties. See what it says under "File System". My guess is the drive is formatted as FAT32. Now FAT32 has a size limitation of 4GB for a single file, which would explain the error. To get over this you need to reformat the USB drive as NTFS. Then it will accept the 6.95GB file. You can format the drive by right clicking it again and selecting "Format" ... choose NTFS from the drop down menu. Be aware that any data already on the drive will be wiped by the format so be sure to back it up before formatting.

8gb memory stick only able to take 2mb of data


What?  Perhaps you mean your SDHC SD memory card can only store 2GB of data because your card reader and its drivers are pre-SDHC?  Usually formatting isn't an issue.  You get a "disk full" error after 2MB, copying from some file manager?  What, really?
