I cannot see my kingston technology datatraveler


First, plug it into a different computer to see if it works there. If it does it's either the wrong format(formatted on Apple, trying to use on windows) or there could be an issue with your USB ports. If it also fails to work on a second system then there may be damage. To assess whether the damage is physical or logical, connect the USB device then go into MMC.

Click on the windows menu then right-click on Computer
From that menu left click Manage
Computer Management(a new window) will open
Left-Click on Device manager on the left side then
Left click on the + sign next to Disk Drives on the right side

c26153f9-fd4b-4c4e-a2d2-e3fbb1c1d600.jpg

Look to see if your drive is listed(should contain the name Kingston and/or DataTraveler), if not the device has most likely failed physically and will require professional help to attempt any recovery.

Assuming it is listed, Left-Click on Disk Management on the left side, depending on how many drives and which type it can take up to 2-3mins for this screen to fully load, be patient.



713dd015-c2a9-4b8b-9a22-61361e5cd0ea.jpg


Find your device in this list and check the capacity, it should be at or just over 15GB, if not again may need a pro.

Assuming it is, scroll down the list in the lower half of the screen and locate the drive, if it lists the space in black as RAW or unallocated then the fault is logical and recovery software will most likely be capable of restoring your files.

Once you have completed these diagnostic steps, drop me a note and let me know your results, if you just need a software recovery I'd be happy to provide a recommendation(let me know if your computer is Windows, Mac or Linux). If you do require hardware assistance I can recommend a lab near you(be sure to include you location, City, State, Country).

Hope this helps,

Chris

You can buy an external hard drive fairly cheap and it would offer a great, secure place to store your documents. You can check out www.newegg.com, their prices are very fair and their shipping is very fast.

Hi I am trying to install Windows 7 on an Asus EEE PC 900 I have installed it on USB Flashdrive but when I try to install it on the 15GB partition it states that it must be formated to NSFT,how do I do...


Install should do that for you. However assuming your current OS is on a different partition thenyour 15GB partition will be shown as a separate drive in My Computer. Right click on it and select format, in the format type select NTFS.

3. When the Recovery Manager appears, click Next.
4. When prompted to use the Microsoft System Restore program, select No and click Next.
5. When prompted to use the System Recovery, select Yes and click Next.
6. Select the option to perform the recovery without backing up files and click Next.
7. Upon completion of the process, recovery will display "The PC Recovery was successfully completed".
The recovery process will return your PC to the factory image.

Full recovery by using recovery disks:

How to clear and restore?


Your notebook should have came with a set of recovery CDs. If so you can recover your PC with the following steps:

  1. If the PC works, back up all data files that you want to save onto removable media, such as a DVD. Remove the backup DVD you have made.
  2. Press the Eject button on the disc drive, and wait for the tray to open. Insert Recovery DVD disc #1 and close the tray.
  3. Turn off the PC.
    • If the notebook works: Click Start on the taskbar, click Turn Off Computer , and then click Turn Off . Or
    • Press and hold the On button approximately 5 seconds until it turns off.
  4. Disconnect all devices.
  5. Press the On button.
  6. Recovery starts; wait for the onscreen instructions to display, and then follow those instructions.
    • For standard recovery, press R . Select Next to proceed with the System Recovery. Select Yes to start the recovery. Insert the remaining recovery discs when directed. Or
    • For full System Recovery, press F . Select Yes to perform a full System Recovery. Insert the remaining discs when directed.
  7. When the recovery program finishes, the drive tray ejects. Remove the disc.
  8. Click Restart.
  9. After it restarts, a series of startup screens appears. To proceed with the initial Microsoft Windows setup, complete the setup screens that appear.
  10. Complete the startup, finish the registration process, and wait until you see the desktop.
  11. When you have access to the Windows desktop, connect to the Internet as soon as possible to update the DEC software as follows:
  1. Update the system virus definitions .
  2. Get the latest critical system updates using Microsoft's Windows Update .
  3. Update the HP software on the system .

If you don't have any CDs you could try the F10 key to see if you have the contents of the CDs hidden on your hard drive. It is the same steps as above except instead of inserting a CD you would use the following as step 2:
When the Compaq logo appears, press the F10 key on the keyboard. (You have only a few seconds to press the F10 key before the normal startup process continues.)
If you this doesn't work and you are certain you don't have your recovery CDs you can get a new set directly from Compaq from the following site:
