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

then you restore it to its default status

Right click on usb drive select properties you will have an array of options

Select the hardware option then select your drive properties policies

restore defaults


Right click on your drive select properties then on customize restore Default in W 7

you might have to alternate doing this repeatedly until the problem is resolved

this may vary depending on your operating system

if you need more help with this post a reply

SOURCE: sandisk 4gb won't open, shows 0 bytes free and 0

if it's new, you may need to format it. on desktop, click on 'my computer' and see if it's listed on the removable device list, right click on it and choose 'format'. then run it. once it's formatted, it should work! check your set-up settings (should tell you which F key to push to enter set-up when you boot-up the computer). there should be 'navigation' choices at the bottom of the screen. if your OS isn't set to 'plug and play', then change it to 'plug and play'- that allows peripherals to be detected, and installed by the OS. so check it out!
good luck!

SOURCE: My computer won't recognise my 4gb kingston

Try the stick in a different USB port on your computer.

Try the stick in some other computer.

If it does not work, it could be defective -- take it back to where you bought it, and get them to demonstrate that it works in one of their computers, or get them to replace it.

The drive letter of your Kingston flash drive is already used by another storage device. You may need to change the drive letter of your flash drive by going to the disk management.

My ped drive kingston datatraveller 4gb doesnot work in win98

I think you will find that the card works fine but your computer doesnt recognise the card reader properly. Windows 98 does not properly recognise most usb devices but Windows 98SE does although I am not sure if it will recognise usb2 properly.

Files in my kingston pendrive does not open up

Hi manoj_clc,

The "other PC" needs to have the same application installed that created the files. It sounds likely that is the problem for the other PC. If the files are failing to open using the PC that originally copied the files, then try formatting the USB drive (formatting deletes all data). Before you copy the file again, make sure the same file opens from your computer prior to copying it. Now copy the file to it the USB drive again.
