Attache Optima Pro 4GB USB drive not recognizable on my mac

The flash drive was working properly on my macbook until a few weeks ago after I lend my flash drive to my friend who uses windows vista. It is no longer writtable when I plugged it into my macbook, now when I plug it in in any kind of computer with different operating systems it does not work. It's not even recognized by any computers. I've never had this problem and I've also been searching on the web for solutions. Please help me if you know the answer to this problem. Thank you!!!

SOURCE: 4GB Attache flash drive says it's locked.

Plug in the stick. wait for it to come up on the desktop then click on it once. (do not open it).
From the file menu select "Get Info"
In the panel that opens up you will see a row of coloured squares. Underneath is a checkbox marked "Locked"
Is it empty or ticked?
If it's ticked, untick and see what happens in disk utility. If it's not ticked that then would appear to be a problem with the stick.
For what it's worth, I did a google on this stick and found that there are numerous posts about it becoming read only on Vista, so it may well be a problem with the manufacturer.

Hi! I have a 4GB Transcend flash drive. I want to completely delete everything from the card; however, when I drag the contents to the trash, this seems to not actually delete the content, as it still...


There are most likely hidden files still left on the drive. Your best bet is to reformat the drive (this will remove all files from the drive and make it like new). To do this, open up the Mac OS X Disk Utility (found in Applications > Utilities). Check out this video for a step-by-step tutorial.

Pny attache optima pro 8g usb drive disk space problem


Yes, and Perfectly too.

What you should do is,
depending on your operating system,
Right-Click on 'My Computer Icon', then select 'Manage'.

When you get to Computer Management page,

Click on Disk Management on left hand side,

This will display ALL the disks installed on your system, either partitioned or not partitioned, formatted or not formatted.

Then go to the ones that are hidden, not created, or not displayed, right-click on it, then you'll see different actions that you can perform.

Also, in some instances, what you just need to do when you get to this page is to assign a new, distinct, drive letter apart from the ones already in use on the system.

This will automatically bring out the hidden drives.

Hope I have helped you out.

Goodluck

LLFTOOL is a utility for low-level disk drive formatting,
also supports formatting of FLASH cards using a card-reader.


1. Download this tool:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/LLFTOOL.EXE

2. Format

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)

Make sure you are using the right port. There are slow and faster ports on a laptop.. So try plugging it into another and see if it helps
