You would have to check with kingston.com to see for sure but due to system files etc you may not get a full 8 gb. check to see if it has hidden files on it.

I want to load information onto the flash drive but I can't get past password, locking/unlocking and partitions.


When you insert it into the pc and the box opens asking what you want to do,just close the box,Then double click on My computer and you will see it listed as a drive,You can double click it and once it open,you can drag and drop anything you want on it or once you know the drive letter assigned to it,you can go to whatever file you want to store on it and just right click the file,click send to,and choose the drive.

Please take time to rate this a fixya

You have lost your stuff more than likely. You can try to use ScanDisc in applications to fix it, but possibly dead. You will need to reformat.

Kingston USB key Data Traveler 8GB doesn't work well when more than 512 MB are copied in it. Same problem with different computers (with Windows XP SP2 or SP3). Same problem when formatted with FAT32 or...


If you have not tried this already, go to control panel, click on administrative tools, then double click computer management. In the left pane under computer management, click on disk management.
Make sure your Kingston data disk is plugged in to your usb port. In the right pane you should see your flash disk represented by a white bar with blue line on top. Right-click on the white bar and select "delete partition" Once the partition is deleted, right-click the bar once again and select create partition. Once you have created this partition, you should have the use of the maximum capacity of the flash drive.

Pleomax 6gb USB Drive No Longer Recognized by My Computers


It's either the USB port, the drive electronics itself, or the USB cable.

First I'd try a different USB cable.
