Question about Kingston (DTIU3/2GB) 2 GB USB Hard Drive
My 4gb flash drive is not working when I put it in any computer and when I insert this it says "device not recognized" is there a solution here please help me im very desperate for my USB because I need it very much.
Your flash drive may be inoperable, but before we say that, let's try a couple of things.
1) Leave the flash drive plugged into a USB port, and reboot your system. Windows will sometimes have difficulty reading devices plugged in after it has launched.
2) Go into System>Device Manager>USB and track down that flash drive (as a device). Delete it from your system. Next time you boot and insert it, Windows will see it as a new device, and walk you through installing it from scratch.
Since the system won't recognize it, then you can't reformat it, so that takes away one good option.
Give those two things a shot, and let me know. Flash drives do go bad (pretty regularly, actually), so in the future, don't store critical information on one. Burn it to CD or DVD instead, and use the flash for simply transferring data from one system to another.

Tips for a great answer:
You will have to be the computer administrator to change
any values on a hard drive
click start control panel user accounts you should see a box with the administrator and the
guest account if you have made one click on the administrator this may vary depending on which operating
system you have
click start click to open on my computer you should see your
hard drive usually C: right click select properties there will be an array of
options select the security tab option then advanced make sure you have full
control in windows 7
click start control panel user accounts click on the
administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in
USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the
StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
hope this helps
