I'm guessing that your DataTraveler has assigned itself a drive letter that is already in use by one of your partitions. If so, this will fix it:

  • Right-click on "Start" and choose "Explore."
  • At the upper-left of the "Folders" window, you'll see an icon labelled "My Computer." Right-click on that and choose "Manage."
  • You should see a tree with "Computer Management" at the top. Somewhere beneath that, you should see a node labelled "Storage," and beneath that a node labelled "Disk Management." Click on "Disk Management."
  • The right-hand screen should show all of your storage drives, including all of your partitions and the drive letters associated with them. Somewhere in there you should see a disk labelled "Removable" and with the overall storage size indicated. Find your DataTraveler in this area, then right-click on it and choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths..."
  • On the window that pops up, click the "Change" button.
  • Another window will pop up that contains a drop down menu of available (that is, unused) drive letters. Pick one that suits your DataTraveler, then click the "OK" button.
  • Click the "OK" button on the next screen. Your computer should immediately recognize the DataTraveler now. Go ahead and close the Computer Management window, and you're good to go.

Try to format to another PC.

You should install your OS again ,only the reason your PC affected with virus.
At the time installation you must delete partition and create partition and install.

There are an another solution you can try also.

8GB Kingston Data Traveller only has 101mb available!

Hi Cristina,
This is Azeem Inam. your data traveller does not accept data over 101MBs. There can be two reasons for this problem. 1. there may be a virus that has provided a limitation on the copying facility. 2. This can be a partition problem. All you need to do is to use the software called DM (Disk manager). This is a DOS versioned software. Go into its advance installation option and then accept the hard disk kingston data traveller. It will take you to another menu showing the partition styles you may choose. you'll have to choose FAT32 type. then in the next menu you'll have to choose partition size by pressing enter button. and then accepting format you are done. it will start working as new again. Thanks for consulting your problem.
