Pen drive is not able to write any data

Hello,

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

I have a 4 GB kingston USD pen drive when I try to save data It says no space


Good Day!

See first the free space of your Pen Drive, to do this, go to MY COMPUTER then right click your PEN DRIVE and click properties, you will see how much is the available space. And also try to see the file size that you are copying and compare it to the free space of your Pen Drive. You can't copy file more than the capacity or the free space of your Pen Drive, that is why you come up with that error message.

Hope I was able to help.

Unable to format 64 gb pen drive


Plug your pen drive into a computer that is on. In Windows Explorer, find the pen drive and right click on it and select "Properties". Select the "Tools' tab and then the "Check Now" button in the "Check the volume for errors"Box. Select both oxes and click "Start". Hopefully this will recover all of your drive. If not, the drive has been compromised (toasted). Then you should check with Kingston to get a replacement.

MY KINGSTON 2GB pen drive shows zero spacing......


do you still have warranty for the Pen drive, suggest you take it to the shop you bought it. you seem to have got a defective ped drive. also if you have the serial numbers, check online with Kingston to see if you have got a genuine kingston product.

Kingston 4gb not detected


Hi,
I dont think this problem is due to the pen drive. It may be more due to the system. Check the driver of the system. This may even happen if the system is affected by virus. So try if your pen drive is getting detected in other computers. If yes, then there may be virus infectiond in your pen drive. So run a virus scan and it may help.

Thanks.

8 GB usb pen drive


Sounds like it's fried. Pen drive sometimes go bad, especially is they are pulled out of a machine without stopping it first. Not much you can do, sorry.
