Hi,

This is a bear of a problem with Transcend owners. You need to use their new Jet Flash format utility. So before doing so, copy everything off your drive to a folder in My Documents. This tool will then format your drive so you can start adding new, more organized data of your choice.

Then, try to remember to keep your data on the pen drive below the 4GB limit. This all has to do with binary math and base 10 math. The drive really doesn't hold 4GB of data, its way lower than that around 3.6GB. So, keep this in mind and keep this format tool around for future use.

I found this download link here, which is dynamic and not static but should work by clicking here.

Should that not work go to this referrer page here. You will have to start by select your product type and then go down through each selection list until you find your model and then the downloads for it will be listed. Click on the Jet Flash utility download eventually.

Personally, I think they could have done this much better and made this way simpler for consumers to find the formatting tool.

Let me know if you run into trouble and if you don't hear from me in 24 hours click on my user name and send me an Ask Me message, I'll get that message and I'll be glad to help you out.

Regards,
Worldvet

Hi I have a transcend jetflash d33193 4Gb flash that won't format. It tells me the flash is write protected and i don't she any physical lock. i have tried every possible thing i know on it but it...


The message which you are facing while formatting your flash drive maybe be due to below reasons.
1) It could be due to virus. Try to scan your flash drive with your anti-virus and check.
2) Second reason would be when you connecting your flash drive it may include some autorun files which starts its own when you connect your flash drive and because that file is running it wont allow to be formatted, so try to delete all the files including in your flash drive and than try formatting.
or
There is right protect switch on many pen drives , a physical write protect switch which enables you to either allow writing on the disk or disallow writing on the disk.

All you need to do is toggle the right protect switch and you would be able to write files on your pen drive.

I have a transcend 4gb pendrive.Can I able to set a pasword for it. Any utility is available to protect my pendrive?


Hi Vgvimalgouta,

To protect your Pen Drive , Please follow the below steps :-

  1. Physical Security is the best security in case of Pen Drive, I would say keep the Pen Drive out of reach of anyone but you.
  2. Make sure that you keep only the data that you have already encrypted , if it's very confidential, for e.g. password protect your files and folders into one zip/rar archive , so that even if someone get's your pendrive , he would not be able to have access to your files and folders.
  3. There are many paid software for protecting files and folders, However I know of a Free application that can help you out.
  4. The free Application is Remora USB Disk Guard , You can download the application from this link -- http://bit.ly/moVnDu
Hope this helps ..:) Your feedback would be appreciated.

How do you stop a pny 4gb from being write protected


A flash drive should operate just like any other drive. There is not write protect switch on it like an sd card. But, if the permissions have been set to be write protected on a given file or folder on the flash drive, then one can remove it through the control panel.

Or remove and replace the flash drive and make sure it has the latest driver running it.

Good luck on this operation.

Transcend JetFlash V60 16GB pen drive is write protected


Flash drives by default use the FAT32 file system. FAT32 has a limit of 4gb per file. So you could have four 4gb files on your pen drive, but no files bigger than about 4gb. You could use the NTFS format, but it's not suggested for flash drives since it reads/writes much more often than FAT and will make the drive lifetime MUCH shorter.
