    yeah.. I had bought 64 gb kingston pendrive DTI/64 GB from one of the re-seller and I am not able to format in Win XP/Vista, I could format by downloading one of the software available on net named "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool" and been able to format. But still the problem of not saving files/docs on pen drive remains same like... It starts copying files to pen drive and then suddenly vanishes off.. (the properties shows that the memory is consumed, whereas the files are not visible even after unhiding..
    REQUEST, ANY BODY.. PLEASE.. perkisams@hotmail.com

    Hello,
    recently I purchased one kingston pendrive of 64GB from Palika bazar Delhi. I verified its capacity at the shop itself on computer. later when i copied some files on pendrive. it start showing the files on the pendrive. However if I remove the pendrive and again connect it with coputer, every thing simply disappears. The pendrive remains empty and showing full available capacity. I could not understand the reason.

In vista you can use exfat format which is new one of fat32. But XP does not recognize this. But the above tool fixed it for me. Thanks to Kuamran.

Guys
If you are using any pen drive above 16 GB, then it should be formatted in exFAT. Do not try FAT32 or NTFS.
If you have Windows 7 or Vista, it works fine. But if you have windows XP or 2003, you need to visit microsoft website and download "WindowsXP-KB955704-x86-ENU.exe" or other appropriate file. Once you install that update, you can format and use the Pen Drive 32 GB or above.

Sounds like a victum of a 1Gb drive.made to think it is 64 gb or what evr size! I got 2 drives in Hong Hong and sure enough it will not hold much for long. It will take 7 hours to fill up, but if you unplug it while it is writting you loose the drive. If you but it in another computer few years older you loose everything again!

I have a scandisk pen drive it show free space 0 kb and use space 0 kb and shows disk unusable plz help


Format the drive by right clicking on its icon and selecting format. Once in the format window, click start. This will take a few minutes and will check the disk for errors as well as format. If you encounter errors while formatting, it may be that the device is defective. Otherwise you should end up with a functioning pen drive.
