Question about Kingston (DTIU3/2GB) 2 GB USB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Cannot copy to flash drive anymore

I successfully copied approximately 200MB of JPEG photos to the flash drive, but then got an error "cannot copy". Ejected and re-inserted into the USB 2 slot, no luck. Inserted the flash drive into my laptop (also XP Pro), was able to copy about a dozen pictures when the same error popped up.

I checked the properties for the drive, and there's about 1.6GB free space. Can't see any write-protection. Has anyone encountered this problem too? If so, is there a workaround? Thanks.

    The flash drive is brand new - I have three others (Sandisk) that I've used on both computers for years without problems.

Your pen drive might be having some kind of virus that is creating this problem. Get USB Disk security from http://www.zbshareware.com/

I'm using it since many months and whenever there's some kind of virus on my pen drive, and I insert it in my PC, this USB disk security detects it and allows me to remove it. Nice littly proggy.

HTH,

The USB drive is recognized as an ordinary hard drive with a letter, easily seen in Windows Explorer. Use drag and drop to copy and paste what ever you want including photos or music, any type of file, no software, program od driver is necessary.

Hi,\r\n When i plug in my Western Hard Disk WD4000ME, its detected by the system and all files are shown, but I cannot copy those files back to the system. It gives the following error:- "The requst could...


An I/O error indicates an issue with the device driver(s) that handle input/output processes such as copying files to/from hard drives, data in resident memory (RAM) waiting to be processed by the CPU or the controller chipset that handles the primary calls to/from the subsystems or a faulty hard drive.
Below are a few solutions that may help resolve the issue and allow you to transfer your files:
Before proceeding, you will need the following:
A. Computer B. External USB Hard Drive C. USB Cable D. RAM Module (Replacement, if necessary) E. Hard Drive (Replacement, if necessary) F. USB Hard Drive Enclosure (Replacement, if necessary) G. USB Cable (Replacement, if necessary)
Note: Solutions B/C apply only to Windows OS.
Solution A. Faulty USB Cable
1. Replace the USB cable. 2. Connect USB hard drive to the computer. 3. Attempt to copy a file from the drive. 4. If successful, copy additional files, as needed. If not successful, skip down to Solution B, step #1.

Solution B. Locked I/O Processes
1. Press and hold the power button on your desktop/laptop for about 10 seconds (or until the system has powered off completely). Then release the power button. 2. Make sure the USB drive is plugged in. 3. Wait another 10 seconds and press the button once again to power on the computer. 4. Once logged in, attempt to copy a single file from the drive 5. If successful, go to step #6. If not successful, skip down to Solution C, step #1. 6. Continue to copy files from the drive. Make sure to pay attention to what files (if any) prompt the I/O error message. If you receive an I/O error, skip down to Solution C, step #1.

Solution C. Motherboard Device Driver Installation/Update
1. Click on the "Start" menu and click on "Control Panel". 2. A new window will open, double-click on "System". 3. A new window will open, click on "Device Manager". 4. A new window will open, listed in the hierarchy are all the hardware components installed on the desktop/laptop. Look for any devices that display either a red "X", yellow "!" or yellow "?". These devices have either incorrect, incomplete or missing drivers/software and need to be installed, as they might be the root cause of the trouble. 5. If any of the above icons are present, perform a Windows Update by visiting the site below:
http://update.microsoft.com
Perform any updates available on the software and hardware side. 6. Restart your computer. 7. Follow Solution C, steps #1-4 to determine if any drivers still need updates. 8a. If updates are not needed, attempt to copy files from the hard drive. If successful, go to step #9. If not successful, skip down to Solution D, step #1. 8b. If updates are needed, you may need to visit the support site for your desktop/laptop's make/model and download any missing drivers. 9. Continue copying files, as needed.

Solution D. Faulty RAM
1. Power off the desktop/laptop and disconnect all cables. 2. Open the desktop/laptop. 3. Remove all the existing RAM. 4. Install the replacement RAM. 5. Power on the desktop/laptop. 6. Connect USB hard drive. 7. Test by copying some files from your hard drive. 8. If successful, close your desktop/laptop and continue copying files, as needed. If not successful, remove replacement RAM and reinstall previous RAM and skip down to Solution E, step #1.

Solution E. USB Hard Drive Case Faulty I/O Board
1. Power off computer/desktop and disconnect all cables. 2. Open your USB external case. 3. Remove your existing hard drive. 4. Install hard drive into replacement USB case. 5. Power on your computer. 6. Connect your USB external drive. 7. Copy files from your external USB hard drive. 8. If successful, continue to copy files, as needed. If not successful, skip down to Solution F, step #1.

F. Hard Drive Malfunction
1. Power off computer/desktop and disconnect all cables. 2. Open your USB external case. 3. Remove your existing hard drive. 4. Install replacement hard drive into USB case. 5. Power on your computer. 6. Connect your USB external drive. 7. Copy files from your external USB hard drive. 8. If successful, continue to copy files, as needed. If not successful, this could be an indiction of a much larger problem in the form of a Motherboard issue.
If the motherboard is malfunctioning, this is a sign of bigger things to come and will require a replacement board in order to correct.
In the event that the motherboard needs replacement, depending on the make/model of the desktop/laptop, the cost could range from $35-120 for 3rd-party boards or $85-300+ for consumer-level systems from manufacturers such as HP, Dell, etc. and $350-1000 from Apple.
If your desktop/laptop is still covered by the manufacturer's warranty or 3rd-party extended warranty, any hardware component that needs replacement should be covered at little to no out of pocket expense to the end-user. This also includes the external USB hard drive, as well.

I have an older HP Pavilion PC with Windows ME. I recently copied 164 Adobe Acrobat files from my ?C? Hard Drive to a 2 GB SanDisk USB 2.0 Flash Drive without any problems. Now I cannot copy any more files...


Sounds like the F.A.T. (File Allocation Table) is bad on the drive. Try to format it and then copy everything back to it once again.

Deleted files in error


some of the files will still be there... depends on how much data was copied ....

the software i have successfully used before is called STELLAR PHOENIX although there are many other similar programs i am sure. some may be shareware though this one is not....

this program will look for the data string that occurs at the start of a photo or mp3 or document and try to salvage it...

google the phoenix

good luck, its complicated to use but does work...

very important not to save anything else on the drive. the more you use that drive the less you will salvage...

please rate if useful

Files disappeared from maxtor one touch iii mini


Alrighty, I finally found the handy file undelete utility which I have successfully used in the past to undelete files on flash cards. The file is Restoration.exe, and it doesn't use an installer. Thus it is a completely stand-alone program. The author of this program says that it is compatible with all Windows OS through XP. It probably will work with Vista too. The program also is compatible with NTFS as well as FAT32 file systems. Here is a link to CNET.com where you can download it and then use it to try to recover the deleted files on your flash card:

Restoration

Once you have recovered the files on your flash card, copy and paste them to your hard disk. I never do cut and pastes from flash cards for fear of accidentally losing files. Copy and paste, and once you have verified that the files were successfully copied to your hard disk, then delete the files on your flash card if that is your preferred method. Yet I prefer to put the flash card back in my camera and then do a quick format of the card in order to delete all files on the flash card.

Anyway, hopefully this restoration utility will allow you to get those deleted images back. :-)

10 to 20 percent music files-(message)"unable to copy file or directory"


go to your folder with the files you want to share, open the folder select all of the music files copy them. Open up your brothers flash drive then paste them onto it.

If you have made a shortcut to these files on your desktop then copying them it maybe trying to copy the shortcuts and it won't work.

Another thing to check is that the music files are in the right format for the flash drive.

SanDisk Cruzer® Micro 2GB WON'T Download pictures


Try using Windows Explorer to copy them. I'll try to help you out.

When you plug the drive in and a window pops up, select "Open folder to view files using Windows Explorer". If they show up in the right pane as thumbnails, select View>Details from the menu at the top.

Left click the top picture, then scroll all the way down to the bottom. Press and hold the <Shift> key, then left click the last picture in the list. This should highlight all the files.

Right click on any of the pics, then go down to "Send to...". This opens several choices, but you probably should choose "My Documents". This will copy all of your pics into your My Documents folder.

Once you get them there you can move them to your My Pictures folder in much the same way.
