Pocket Fuzzies?
Get a bright light and look into the USB connector of the USB Drive. It is possible that there is lint, paper bits, cookei crumbs, etc in there and that is your problem. The outer 2 connections of the USB is DATA and the inner two Power. B/C it is able to flash,you are getting power... but the data lines may be dirty, covered, bent, etc.

Clean it up and try again. Flat toothpick, small ty-wrap or Proxident (dental/braces) brushes work well for this - DO NOT use anything Metal!! It will scratch the connectors and vastly shorten their life (they are GOLD plated)

I have a kingston 8gb, and when I insert my usb I cannot locate the file anywhere. I also use a mac and have tried using the finder to locate the kingston file and it is no where to be found. The hard...

You will need to locate the USB drive by opening Windows Explorer, and navigating to the "My Computer" folder. (You may have a shortcut on your desktop for this, if not, you can tell the computer you want one from your "Control Panel" menu) USB Drives will be listed as removeable drives, usually with drive letters D, E, F, G, H, etc..

Click that, and there you go!

My kingston 8GB cannot open ( Message Show- The semaphore timeout period has expired) please help me. TQ

It sounds as if you have a faulty USB drive, depending on your Operating System, MS Windows / Linux, uninstall the USB drivers under device manager which could be found in the control panel on Windows XP/Vista/7, restart the computer and reinstall the driver's if they don't install back by themselves. But before you start try using your thumb drive on another computer. If you get the same problem, try to reformat the thumb drive, but before you do, be aware that all your information will be lost, and will not be able to be recovered without the appropriate recovery tools.

My DTI/2GB wont give any light and not picked up by my pc but another same USB works

The DTIU is a USB 2.0 device. Are you 'plugging into a USB 2.0 port? I realize that sounds like a dumb question, so I apologize if you found it insulting. Other than that, the only other problem is with Windows Vista. If your running Vista go to the Kingston site for an update to the Device driver.

Those files are nothing but lost clusters recovered. If the data is very important for you, there is a chance to get it recovered, however, it won't be free. You can contact any local vendor or try the following link.

My computer won't recognize my phones memory card!

Well I found that these older card readers will not read the 4g sdhc format. In your case you found a 4 gig card that can be read (your sisters) Bring your's back to the store and get an exchange for the brand your sister has, let them know this. The knowledge for them is good. They most alway accomadate just to keep the customer happy.
