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,

How to put photos onto flash drive?


If you are using a Windows Computer, when you plug in the flash drive into USB port, you should get a message on the screen that says that you have installed a new removable drive. It will ask you what you want do next and one of the options would be to copy your photos. Note which drive letter the new drive is using - if you want to copy files manually, open My Documents, select My Computer on the left side panel, and select the drive that matches your Fllash Drive. When it opens, you can open. A second window to the location where your photos are, and then just copy and paste, or drag and drop between the two windows.

Copy all the files from the memory-stick onto your disk-drive.
Then, open My Computer.
Right-mouse click on the icon for the memory-stick.
Choose Format.
Choose Quick-Format.
When it completes, it should show as 4GB.
Copy the files back onto the memory-stick.

When I open JPEG file, I get ''No preview available''


If ou copied them from a flash memory card eg SD, USB, its possible that a setting on the port or card reader was incorrect and the file did not copy correctly even though the file size may look correct.

It is not a common problem but one that does happen from time to time with removable memory devices. If you plug a usb flash drive in then call up its properties from within windows explorer and check the various tabs you will find one that says optimise for quick removal it is usually under the policy tab.

Trying to copy mp3 into the usb drive kingston. after 2/3 full not allowing anymore files to be copied. error massage is: cannot copy xxxx: the directory or file cannot be created.


Try reformatting the Kingston flash drive and copying the files over again. Make sure that none of the MP3 files in question are actually in use (e.g. playing in the background or being accessed by some other application)

Decode error! JPEG datastream contains no image.


Kodak has software that should be able to make sure those pictures are in JPEG format. Id use that at first instead of a third party program. Picture It! does some funny things to pictures and Microsoft discontinued that product line several years ago.

Here is a link to download it

There is a firmware upgrade too on this page. You should install that into your camera as well.

Does not copy large files


Sounds suspicsouly like a memory problem. When you allocate bad memory it will reboot your pc :)

Few things to check. First disable auto restarts on windows crashes. Do the following. (Assuming windows XP)

Right click My Computer
go to Properties
Click the Advanced tab
Click Settings for "Startup and Recovery"
Under "System Failure" Uncheck Restart

Now copy the files again and report back with the error code you get. IT will be something like 'yad yada yada 0x0000024'

You may want to also download memtest86, burn that to a cd and restart your pc. It will tell you if your memory is bad. Just look for red lines that say bad :)
