Question about Electronics - Others
This is Rajnish here, sir i'm having problem with my Kingston 8 GB pen drive. The problem is, when i insert my pen drive my system detects it properly. but when i transfer any data to the pen drive, it shows copying the file but as 2 or 3 progress bar moves, it suddenly shows an error ''the file or path is not correct, make sure you've given the correct path''. Now when i check the property then it shows ''used space 0 Byte And Free Space 0 Byte''. When i format the pen drive, property shows ''7.65 GB is free and 0 Byte'' used. And Again when i transfer the data to the pen drive same problem occurs. There is no problem with da pendrive cause i checked it on other system it works properly (Write the data as well as read the data). I'm only able to read the data with the pen drive on my system only if the data was written on other system.
I thought there would be problem with my operating system files or driver so i formatted my full PC and repartitioned but no change. And when i insert any other pen drive to my PC, it works properly. I also checked the pendrive on other USB port available in my system but still i'm getting the same problem.
My system configuration:
OS: MS Windows XP Pro Service pack 2.
Processor: AMD athelon 5000+
Motherboard: Asus A8N-MX
What would be the reason causing this problem and if there is problem with hardware settings then please help me to find the solution or remadies
I'll be thankful of yours.
Hello, from my understanding, such pen drive problems could be caused by RAW file system error and virus infection, etc. as with yours, merely go see whether this flash drive is also displayed as RAW file system in Properties. If so, with important data reserved on this RAW flash drive, merely download RAW format USB Thumb drive data recovery software to take everything desired back. And then format it to convert RAW to NTFS.
But, if you only find it is shows 0 bytes used space and 0 bytes free space, go check whether it is virus infected.
Hope these words are not too late for you.

How are you formatting it? NTFS or FA32?
I suggest you reformat as FAT32
