Try it again, sometimes it takes a second try, also make sure that you have nothing from the pen drive open (files folder views or programs)

Unable to transfer files to sony 4gb pen drive


Restart your PC and try it again or try it on other PCs. If problem persists then pen drive is defective. Return to retailer and ask for a replacement.

Removing Write Protection


Trouble:
In the past we had received so many problems from the readers who have a problem in copying files on their USB portable devices like pen drives, memory card and iPod etc.
usbdrivewriteprotected_thumb.gif
According to the mails we had received about this problem, people have seen the following errors when their thumbs drives, memory card etc becomes write protected.
  • Cannot copy files and folders, drive is write protected
  • Cannot format the drive, drive is write protected
  • The disk is write protected
  • Remove write protection or use another disk
  • Media is write protected
Some times people say that suddenly their drive become write protected and they are not able to delete any files and folder on the drive and also not able to copy new files and folder to USB portable drive.
Let’s see how can you remove write protection on your portable devices like pen drives, memory cards, iPod and other USB mass storage devices.
Fix:
Write Protection on any portable USB Device can be applied by the physical lock provided on the card adjuster or some times provided on the pen drives, so make sure to make your drive not write protected by moving the lock in right direction.
But even after moving the physical lock for write protection the problem can happen due to some virus action. This happens when some virus or script which applies the registry hack to make any drive write protect when connected to the computer, In that case follow the procedure below to remove write protection from your pen drive.
1. Open Start Menu >> Run, type regedit and press Enter, this will open the registry editor.
2. Navigate to the following path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies

Note: If the registry key StorageDevicePolicies key does not exist, you will need to create it
Download this batch file called add.bat from here, and double click after download the key will be automatically added to registry.

3. Double click the key WriteProtect in the right pane and set the value to 0 in the Value Data Box and press OK button disablewriteprotection_thumb.png

google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);

4. Exit Registry, restart your computer and then again re-connect your USB pen drive on your computer. That is it, done.
In case you still find an issue, please leave a comment below.

After a lot of user comments telling that the above method does not work for them, we tell you another method which you can follow to solve the “Pen Drive is Write Protected” problem.
If the above method does not work for you, follow the below steps:
1. Copy all the important data from this drive to your computer because this method will format the drive and erase all the data on the pen drive.
2. Now download the Apacer Formatting Utility, Unzip this utility to a folder on your hard disk, preferably on a folder on desktop screen for easy access (Do Not Try To Save it on pen drive). Keep your pen drive plugged in, and double click on the Start.bat file in the folder where you unzipped the above utility. This will start formatting your pen drive, wait till the formatting completes and the LED on your pen drive stops blinking. Remove your pen drive after than and plug it in again.
The above two steps will solve the problem. If you still face the problem, follow the below steps:
1. Goto Start > Run, type cmd and press enter, this will open command prompt.
2. Type the following command on the command prompt replacing X with the drive letter of your pen drive.
CHKDSK X: /F
The above two methods will help you fix the problem.
Note: For all those who are out of luck in fixing the problem with their portable drives, I would suggest you to get your drives checked or replaced by the manufacturer to fix it for you

Cannot transfer files in to sony 4gb pen drive


try a different usb slot ..if that doesnt works then it sounds like your pen drive is damaged .. that can happen in several ways .. if you carry it around with you, make sure the cap is on ... it can get static zapped otherwise .. also the gold fingers inside can get dirty .. another way the drives are damaged is to remove them while data is still being written to the drive ... wait until the light is no longer flashing before removing .. if you are using win98 or winMe .. then make sure you turn off the device before removing ..

You do not need any drivers in windows for these drives if you are using XP/Vista. These are generic volumes. Try deleting any mention of the driver in device manager and let windows install it automatically. This sounds a lot more that your pen drive is dead. Time for a new one. Can you borrow a friends and plug it in to test the USB port is ok?

Whenever i send any data to pen drive then during that time of interval it shows that data but after ejecting from the pc and after re insurting it shows that file corrupted,please help me now.


I'm assuming you are using Windows, please let me know if you aren't.
The most likely reason is that your device is set to "optimized for performance" and is caching the files, rather than writing them directly to the pen drive. If you use the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon from your system tray to disconnect the drive first does it then save the files properly?
If it does then you can set the device to "Optimized for quick removal" by going into the device manager and double-clicking the device (may be called a USB storage device, or Generic storage device in disk drives) and then under poicies change it to "Optimized for quick removal". This will mean slower performance as the files are written to the device in "real time" rather then being stored in memory, but it should stop them becoming corrupted.

I can't power down my passport. When I right click on the safely remove hardward icon, click on the drive to close and click stop, it tells me: "The device 'Generic volume' cannot be stopped right...


This should be simple. It seems as though your PC is still communicating to your passport in the background. Make sure you are not copying/cutting and pasting anything to or from your passport.

Personally, I remove my thumbdrive without going through the proccess of: "Safely Removing Hardware". But this only because I know that my computer is no longer communicating to it, and because it not a matter of life and death to me if my data is erased.

But don't get me wrong, I do not reccomend pulling your device out "Unsafely". What I'm trying to say is, as a last resort, I would personally pull it out.

Anyway, completely shut down or disable all programs that may be communicating to this passport.

Then try "Safely Removing Hardware".

USB Pen Drive


In win 98 eject pen drive before unpluging it.

In later windows use icon near clock ( bottom right of screen ) and stop mass storage device before unpluging it.

That should solve problem.

CD ROM not working


from microsofts site:

Code 10 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); If the device has a "FailReasonString" value in its hardware key, that string is displayed as the error message. The driver or enumerator places this registry string value there. If there is no "FailReasonString" in the hardware key, the following generic error message is displayed:
This device is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. (Code 10)

Try upgrading the device drivers for this device.
Solution button: Update Driver

To resolve this error code, make sure the device is connected to the computer correctly. For example, make sure all cables are plugged in fully and that all adapter cards are properly seated. Follow the suggested solution button and update the device driver. It may be possible to remove the device and redetect it using the Add New Hardware wizard
