Purchased 128GB data traveler and when i put something on it such as movies outta of the 10 or 15 ive tried only one plays anything else ive put on it never will play music or data or movies is data...


No, if the traveler would have been bad you wouldn't have been able to put the files on it. The files you are trying to play need special codecs that the player doesn't have.

Anything I load on to my kingston data traveler 32GB dt101 gets corupted & does not open. I attempted top reformat however problem persist.


the ram chips have become corrupted, either from pulling out the data traveler when it was working, in a folder, and or windows was still accesing it even though it has said it is safe to remove. If this is still under warranty then send it back to get it replaced. I have a couple of 32GB and 16GB thumb drives that have become corrupted just because windows didn't recognise them properly and just kept on accessing them continuously. Sometimes reformatting will fix problem as a short term fix. Just get it replaced ASAP.

Unable to save delete or format datatraveler 8GB key. It also seem to have a virus which I have so far not been able to clean. Plese I need your help.


Hello,

exactly the same thing has happened to be before, but I was able to solve the problem using Avira Anti-virus.

Here is what you have to do to get your flash drive working again;

Install Avira Anti virus on on your computer. If you don't have Avira anti-virus software, go to www.avira.com, on the Avira home page, you will see Free download. Click on the free download. Allow the software download on your computer. Go to the location where the software was download and click on the software to have it installed on your computer.

After the Avira nti-virus has been successfully or completely installed on your computer, insert the data-traveler 8GB into the USB port of your computer.

The moment the data-traveler 8GB is inserted, the Anti virus will pop out with a dialogue box alerting you about virus detected on the data-traveler 8GB.

Select 'Delete...", and the box might pop out over and over. Just keep selecting delete until the whole virus is deleted from the data-traveler 8GB and your flash will be okay.

You can format the data-traveler 8GB thereafter or right click on the data-traveler 8GB from 'My computer' and scan the drive with Avira anti virus.

This should fix the problem you are facing presently. But if it does not solve the problem, please let me know so that I can give the next step to taking.

Your sincerely.
