There isn't any solution for these kind of problems. the only solution is buying another pen drive. if you have problem in your pen drive just replace it

I had a pendrive of 8 GB my friend tried to make a bootable pendrive so he changed some settings by command prompt. My pendrive storage capacity dropped from 8 GB to 3.44 GB I need a good solution please...


Hello,
It seems that after your friend made it a bootable pendrive, he/she did not format it.The space has been used up by the installation files in the flashdrive,and these files may be hidden.This is likely to be the case with some command-line utilities for making bootable flashdrives.
To recover your space, simply format your USB pendrive.To do so on Windows XP,insert the flashdrive into your PC, go to My Computer, right-click the USB pendrive,and in the window that appears, click the tools tab and select the Format option.
That should solve your problem.

Error opening



I have a kingston DT10 pendrive. When you plug in the pendrive to any computer, it say the pendrive needs to format. When you click format, then it say that windows cannot format the disk. I've try large number of software such as HD Guru Low level format but it's also useless. The problems start when a virus attacking my pendrive then suddenly hidding all my files. It's not a big deal to me to open it using up level button on the winrar system. But, the problem starts when im deleting a strange folder named 3hkgj..... something like that.

First, your Windows XP must be either SP2 or SP3, and then you must add a patch to it. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/955704/en-us that is KB955794 for the patch

Unable to format pen drive


XP has a stupid feature like that. If you did format with the XP style, try to do it manually.

My computer > Locate your usb pendrive >Rightclick and Format.

If this don't work, your pendrive might just be malfunctioning. Replace it if you can, or upgrade to external harddrive.
