Most of these portable memory sticks are all plug and play. This simply means they are ready to be used whenever and wherever. Just plug in the drive to your USB port and drag files into the listed hard drive. Just remember, do not pull this stick out of the USB port without pressing "safely remove hardware" on your start bar. Failure to do this can result in frying your flash memory. Best of luck!

Computer does not reconize mermory stick


Either the port on the computer is bad or the memory stick is bad.

If you are using a usb port to plug in the memory stick, try another usb port.

Try plugging the memory stick into another computer to see if it works or if it is bad.

Not detected


Hi,

1stly try the Kingstone in another PC - if it works in another PC you have 1 of 4 problems:

1] You are using a very old version of Windows and therefore would require drivers for the memory stick. (i.e. Windows 95 or Windows 98)

2] Your USB ports are faulty - try the ports at the back of the PC instead of the ones in the front if you have not done so already

3] There is a virus on your memory stick and it is attempting to load an executable file when u plug it in and that is causing it to fail.

4] It is detecting fine but you cant read it because the FAT (File allocation table) is damaged in which case it will need to be formatted.

I will need some more info though - for example:

Does windows say "Hardware detected" when u plug it in?
Are you getting any lights flashing on the memory stick?
What do you see when u click on my computer? Does is show up at all but u just cant open it?

Good Luck

I require instruction on the use of my portable hard drive.


its very easy. just connect to your computer usb port. If your drive requires power put the power adapter. Before connect to frontpanel USB of your system. Once check your front panel usb is working or not. Check with some other memory stick or mouse etc.. Because if your front panel usb connect reverse there is chance to lose your hard drive..

I need to put my photo,s onto a memory stick,dont know how to,i have a cruzer slice 2gb,thank you


I assume that you want to save photos to your memory stick from your computer. Follow this simple steps;
1. Connect the memory stick to one of the usb ports on your computer. (wait for few seconds)
2. Open the "My Computer" and check for a new drive detected. If you had assigned a name to your memory stick, you'll see it with the name or just check out the new drives detected (cruzer has a built-in application which you'll see it as another drive on your computer, you'll not be able to open it, it's only an image/read-only).
3. You can save the images/photos in two simple ways, (a). Open the folder where you saved your photos, right-click on the photo "send to" and then move your mouse towards the memory stick name and select it, refer to the picture below; d26b7ec.jpg

You can do the same with a folders or another files. Or you can select the photos you would like to copy to your memory stick which are saved in a folder on your computer, copy them and open the pendrive/memory stick directory, paste them into it.
4. After you are done, click on the usb icon on the taskbar and again click "safely remove usb mass storage" or similar messages. You'll be presented with another message that you could be able to remove the usb device.
I hope you can follow this instructions, i've tried to simplify, so that you can understand. Well, if you have problem following these, please let me know.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I want to save a powerpoint on to a usb stick to put on my laptop but I'm not sure how to use a memory stick


You should use a flash drive just like a floppy disc (if all you do with it is transfer files). Insert the USB stick into a USB port; watch for a message about found new hardware and then ready to use. Either drag and drop the file from hard disc to the USB stick (depending on your system it could be drive E:) in the File Explorer (in Windows use a right click to ensure a copy file, not a move file) or File > Save As and change the default location in PowerPoint. When done with the file transfer, click on Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media in the System Tray or Eject in the Explorer (My Computer).

I hope this helps.

My cruzer 4 mb usb stick is suddenly not recognized by the computer


this may have many causes. first possibility: the stick is dead and needs replacement. second: there may be a problem with the usb-port or -controller. if you connect a different usb device to the same port as the stick, and it's recognised, the usb- port is fine and it surely will be the stick which is broken. if the other device isn't recognised either, it's a usb related problem. in this case you should verify if all settings for usb in the BIOS are enabled, if the usb-controller in device manager has been installed supposedly. if not, reinstall, reboot and try again. if this does not work, you need to replace your computer's system board

I have purchased a memory stick[8GB] and I need to know how to use it


Hello !

If you are familiar with floppy disks (were placed in the "A" drive) from years ago, the memory stick works in the same way. Instead of saving to the "A" drive, you would save to a drive letter.

If you have a computer that is less than 8 years old, you probably have a USB port. The USB port is rectangular in shape.

Place the memory stick in your USB port (any USB port). The stick only goes one way. So if it does not fit, flip it over and try again. Do not force it.

You should see a message displaying a drive letter (probably "E", "F" or "G") that has been created. Note that drive letter.

Now, the memory stick will allow you to save your files to the "E", "F" or "G" drive. Your computer's hard drive is "C". When you save files (in a document, for example), you are saving to your "C" drive. To save to the memory stick, select "Save As" with in your software program, such as Word, and select the memory stick's drive letter. Your document will be saved to your memory stick. Note that the light will go on the memory stick as it saves your document.

When you are finished with the memory stick, look for a symbol on your Toolbar (near the date/time). Right-click the item and select "Eject" and you'll get a message that it is safe to remove your hardware.

Please note to never remove your memory stick when your are saving a document or other file.

That's it !!

Hope this helps.

Lexar memory stick


Hello,
This device should be plugged into any computer that has USB ports to plug into. Usually, you plug it in and you will see something pop up in the bottom right corner of the screen about installing usb drive. When it is done installing (usually takes about 1 minute), you can open My Computer and see it in there as a removable drive. Open it and save your files directly in there by copy and paste or drag and drop.

Thanks,
Lolita
