I have a transcend pendrive wen i insert it it shows drive has to be format but wen i m tryng to format its not formattingl08305


It is possible that the memory was damaged or is infected with a strong virus malware that does a block on detection to the PC. try the same on another PC which has a good protection and if this works there are faults on your port or the PC is infected.
If the drive is still not detected then the memory is faulty even after you try to format on any PC.

Kingston datatraveler 8G shows write protection error, contain a virus outorun.inf, cannot save, cannot be formated and cannot delete. Please help.


1. Open Notepad and do not write anything in it. Just go to File > Save as (save it with the name: autorun.inf)



2. Copy the autorun.inf file that you have created in the above step and paste in your "Pen Drives"


3. Remove your pen drive.


After removing the pendrive, re-insert in your PC. Now your anti-virus will not detect any virus in your PC. And Your pendrive is 100% safe to use.

VIRUS OR TROJAN INFECTIONS:

Virus or trojans can run some process that keeps running in background. This not only harms the computer, but also prevents the pen drive from formatting as it shows that the drive is in use. Remove and re-insert thepen drive, don't double click on drive and cancel autorun operations if it starts automatically. Run a virus scan on pen drive, this will help fix the issue. Now format the pen drive.


CORRUPTED FLASH CHIPS ON PEN DRIVE:

If the pen drive is not detected at all, or shows a less capacity, then there are high chances that its a chipcorruption. Flash chips are the actual hardware components that save the data. A physical or electrical or electromagnetic damage to these chips make the pen drive faulty. This can happen because of voltage fluctuations and faulty USB ports. In such case, get the flash drive replaced if its under warranty as it can not be fixed otherwise.


FAKE PEN DRIVES:

Sounds a bit un-believable but true. There are a lot of pen drives in the market which are of very cheap quality which are fake copies of some known brands. Beware of such pen-drives. Always purchase pen-drives or memory-cards from a reliable source with bill and warranty to avoid any mess later.

When i connect my pen drive to my pc then it gets connected but after that if i try to copy or delete or format the drive i cant because i get error as remove write protection mode and try again


HI there its a reason for virus infested system with pen drive. Your PC & pen drive both are infested by virus. That's why you are not able to deleted or copy or format that Drive. Its a trozonhouse or warm32 virus. I suggest you format the OS and install it again. After that connect the pen drive but remember do not open the pen drive. Straight way format the Pen drive first then open ok. Other wise your PC again virus infected by pen drive virus. Thanks.

AUTORUN.EXE & RECYCLE VIRUS


You need to do a low level format on the pen drive and the system drive. I have found by using programs like kill disk is the best way to get rid of a worm virus. A regurlar format will not work, unlike what they say to you. Kill disk will stop all running prorgrams on the drive. What it does it rights zero to the pen the drive. After that you need to do the same to your system drive. Otherwise you will be back to square one.

Try system restore to restore your computer to a previous date. For that click Start- Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore. Click Restore my computer to an earlier time, click next, select a date from the calender ( select a date when ur pen drive was working) and click next twice. The computer will restart automatically. When it starts again, try your pen drive
