Hi john_nelson0,

First check the other USB ports. Try it in the USB ports on the back of the computer. If that doesn't help then make sure you have the latest WinXP service pack installed. Although it is possible to have a problem with the drivers, they are built into Windows and are not available for download from Kingston. Do any other USB drivers work on that computer?

Will not allow me to access my flash drive


Windows XP, Vista , or Windows 7 should be able to automatically detect and install it. Try using it on another computer that has either Windows XP, Vista , or Windows 7 on it. If it doesn't automatically detect and install it on that one then the flashdrive is dead.

If you have an older operating system then go here to download the driver:

My laptop XP is not detecting Transcend StoreJet 25 External HD 500GB, but in desktop XP it is very well detecting and working. Pls let me know the solution for my laptop


USB devices draw electrical power through the USB cable.

Sometimes, the power-output from a USB port on a laptop is _less_ than that of a USB port on a desktop computer.

Hence, there are "Y" cables -- connect to two USB ports on your computer, and to the USB device at the other end, to draw more current.

Which manufacturer of laptop?
Which model-number?
Which Operating System?
Do other USB devices work when connected to the laptop's USB ports?

Set-up recognize my hdd but windows doesn't


Windows uses NTFS file system.

you need to enter a boot disk/recovery disk/windows xp disk into your CD drive and in the system BIOS select the CD drive to boot first. Once the CD has loaded you can re-format your HDD to NTFS and re-install windows

You will, however loose all your data but your HDD will function again with windows

you will need to install the drivers for your drive.
xp doesn;t recognize 2.0 usb unless you install drivers and have a usb 2.0 port
but install the drivers and you should get it to recognize

you can go to control panel, system and device manager.
look for a usb device that is not working and right click install drivers or update drivers.
See if it comes up.
Once it does you will see it in the device manager under disk drives

My computer will not recognize this flash drive. I have Windows XP on my Desktop and Windows Vista on my laptop.


When connecting to the desktop be sure to plug it into the back. The back usb ports are high speed and should recognize the flash drive. If you go into the my computer is the flash drive shown there?. If it is make sure you format the drive to be compatible with xp. I am noticing a lot of complaints about this type of flash drive, there could be a driver issue. Try to visit the manufacturer website and get the most up-to-date driver.
