If you have not tried this already, go to control panel, click on administrative tools, then double click computer management. In the left pane under computer management, click on disk management.
Make sure your Kingston data disk is plugged in to your usb port. In the right pane you should see your flash disk represented by a white bar with blue line on top. Right-click on the white bar and select "delete partition" Once the partition is deleted, right-click the bar once again and select create partition. Once you have created this partition, you should have the use of the maximum capacity of the flash drive.

You have to be the computers administrator to change any values on any hard drive on your computer. Click start control panel user accounts on the users tab click the name of the computer administrator you must have full control Click start click to open on my computer you should see your usb drive could be E: or something right click select properties there will be an array of options select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box then click permissions make sure you have all 3 boxes ticked full control changes and read in windows 7 Click start control panel user accounts click on the administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in windows XP Click start right click on my computer select open
Right click the icon of your usb drive (It should be E:/ or something)
Click Properties in the menu that comes up
Click the Sharing tab
Click permissions
And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.

Unable to save delete or format datatraveler 8GB key. It also seem to have a virus which I have so far not been able to clean. Plese I need your help.


Hello,

exactly the same thing has happened to be before, but I was able to solve the problem using Avira Anti-virus.

Here is what you have to do to get your flash drive working again;

Install Avira Anti virus on on your computer. If you don't have Avira anti-virus software, go to www.avira.com, on the Avira home page, you will see Free download. Click on the free download. Allow the software download on your computer. Go to the location where the software was download and click on the software to have it installed on your computer.

After the Avira nti-virus has been successfully or completely installed on your computer, insert the data-traveler 8GB into the USB port of your computer.

The moment the data-traveler 8GB is inserted, the Anti virus will pop out with a dialogue box alerting you about virus detected on the data-traveler 8GB.

Select 'Delete...", and the box might pop out over and over. Just keep selecting delete until the whole virus is deleted from the data-traveler 8GB and your flash will be okay.

You can format the data-traveler 8GB thereafter or right click on the data-traveler 8GB from 'My computer' and scan the drive with Avira anti virus.

This should fix the problem you are facing presently. But if it does not solve the problem, please let me know so that I can give the next step to taking.

Your sincerely.

Hi, First try to format your data traveler. If it doesn't help you then you have to repair or replace it. Rush to the nearest Kingston or Seagate service center.

My kingston data traveler 2.0 is not working.. when i plug it to the computer it tells that the computer doesnt recognize it. i tried to update the driver but nothing is working.. My computer is Windows XP...


May wish to try the following:

1. Use another USB port on same computer
2. Shut down computer, turn-on computer, wait for computer to finish booting up, then plug back-in
3. Use another computer

If the above fail, then it may be the data traveler itself.
When these USB storage devices are unplugged from computers, and NOT safely removed, the USB device becomes unusable.

The thumb drive might have some fault.
Plug it in other OS mainly windows XP and Linux.
If still same problem persists after tried in Linux, problem is with pen drive.
You can ask for a replacement from the dealer as it has guarantee for 5years.

The file system is unknown


The file system is likely corrupted. This can happen if you remove the usb drive from the computer without clicking "Safely remove hardware' first, (in your taskbar).

There is little chance that you can recover the data.

Just in case, try inserting the drive into different usb ports, preferably also on different computers. If the result is always the same, you will have to format your drive.

Insert the drive into a usb port. Assuming you use windows, click Start, click My Computer, find your USB drive in the list and RIGHT click on it. You will see a Format option. Click on that and use default or FAT. A quick format should do.

Good luck.

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 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: -

Installing driver


you dont need drivers for hds in windows XP if the operative system is already installed and you are trying to connect an external HD via USB... if this is your case you dont need drivers...you probably have another problem in your OS... And if there is a driver problem and the disk is HITACHI, just go to manufacturers website and thats all... good luck
