Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi Brian, I have a Dane-elec 8 Gb jump drive that is asking me to format, but if I do I will lose all data on it.

When I put it into my computer it is telling me to format it, but I will lose all data on it. I REALLY need that data, what do I do? Is there a way to save the information before formating?

Click start control panel administrate tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes

Automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in one box then select check now start then after its finished return and tick the other box you should not

do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive
i have found the best results ticking in one box the returning after it has finished then ticking the other box

it might take some time depending on the size of your disk but be patient

hope it helps

SOURCE: It keeps asking me to format to use the drive

Some times ago I faced problem like this. I discussed with an expert from local market about it On his suggestion I arranged an other hard disk and connected my PC. Note that I was already using two hard disk one as a master, 2nd for slave and the third one of same size of defective hard disk. I installed hard disk migration software on the master. I successfully copied all data on the secondary master. There is no need to make same partitions. The software will automatically make same copy of the disk to the destination disk including equal partions if they exists. Remember you have connect three hard disk with the same PC. I can arrange address of the software for you. Feel free to mail me at:

SOURCE: how to open without format when i open my drive it displayed do u want to format if i foramt my drive i will lose my data pls tell me how to open it without format

Windows has found a problem with the F.A.T. (File allocation table), thus windows wants to format the drive. Other Dos mode commands like FIXMBR, (fix master boot record) may make retrieving your data impossible.
There is a way to get around this with out loosing all your data.
Before we get started I need you to check the data cable & power cable connected to the drive. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open your case. Disconnect the power cable & data cable from the drive. Than re-connect the power cable & data cable, follow the data cable to the motherboard & check it's connection.
(By doing this you are making sure the cables are fully connected, sometimes they come loose but you can't tell just by looking at them). Put your case back together & plug in the power cord.
Load your windows CD into CD-ROM. Start up your system & at the same time press the F8 key on your keyboard every two seconds. A screen like the one below will load;

9bfe434.jpg
Choose your CD-ROM with windows in it.
Windows will see you have a version installed & it will give you other options. Read the screen prompts. You want to create a partition within the free space of your drive. Follow windows instructions. Windows will creating a new partition . Install windows into that new partition. (This will be a full install). Your old windows will not load.
The data within your old partition will not be deleted!
When you have finished installing windows update it. Install motherboard drivers, printer drivers & programs ect. When finished you can now copy folder & data to the new windows. (All this will take time). Most data will be located in folder shown below. You can copy & past the data / folders from the old partition to the new windows;
C:Documents and Settings User nameApplication DataMicrosoftAddress Book
C:Documents and Settings User nameDesktop
C:Documents and Settings User nameFavorites
C:Documents and Settings User nameLocal SettingsIdentities
C:Documents and Settings User nameMy Documents
Data from any program you may have installed.

When you are 100% sure you have recovered all your data, you can delete the old partition through windows disk management. How to run disk management?
Click the start button & click Run. Type, diskmgmt.msc into the run window & click ok. Within in disk management you'll see all partitions on your hard drive, you'll also see your CD-ROM & any other drives What was once your C: drive will most likely be labeled to another letter. To find your old windows right click on a drive within disk management & click open. (Make sure you do not delete the wrong partition / Windows).
To delete the old partition right click on the old partition & click, Delete Partition. Close all opened windows & restart. Windows will automatically add the drive space to your new partition.
Operation complete.

Good luck!
Mike

Put in my dane elec 16 gb flash key on my computer window ex and other computer window 2007 not recognized its malfunctioned. light is out... need to get all my important files out..


Files on a flash drive canbe corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon andthen click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flashdrive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive to working order you need to format the flash drive,BUT you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: -

I have a Dane-Elec 4 GB Flash drive. I used it successfully one time, but the next time I put it in my computer (or any computer after that) the computer recognized the new device but told me "Please...


1) Instead of double-clicking, right-click and choose "explore." I hope it's that simple. Once you're in, look for a file called autorun.inf. Delete it.

2) If it won't let you explore, see if there is a "format" option instead. This will possibly solve your issue of access, and will solve your issue with your confidential data (of course, your data will be gone, but I'm guessing you're OK with that).

3) Try using another USB slot, sometimes there could be an issue with specific slots, especially if you are using hte front USB ports on a desktop
4) I know this may seem silly but turn off the computer, and then unplug the computer from the wall. Leave it unplugged for 30 seconds, plug it in and then boot up the systems. Plug in the USB drive.

5) Finally if the unit still is not being seen, it may need a low level format, contact the manufacturer and see about getting a replacement. I found their e-mail at onlinesupport@dane-memory.com

Dane Elec 4gb USB Not Readable


Try it in a different computer or even a different usb port on the computer that you are using. If a second computer gives you the same error, then the drive is either damaged or its filesystem is corrupted. In the first case there is not much you can do. In the second case you may be able to reformat it to make it work, but you would lose any data that was on it.
