Sir, i got a kingston 64gb pen drive, which is now showing only space as 700 mb free and rest occupied. but the files are invisible even after unhiding. moreover the pen drive is not getting formatted even in dos mode after 99% it says that volume is too big for fat32. Kindly resolve. Thanks
Hi Manish here Even i have the same Problem can u revert plz..not able to format my 64GB kingston Pen drive.
These are actually ccore flash drives, shipped with the name "Kingston". YOU CAN FORMAT ANY ZIP DRIVE WITH "HP USB DISK STORAGE FORMAT TOOL". Trust me, it really does the needful. I had the same problem earlier =)

If you bought a 640 GB hard drive when the drive is formatted it will be slightly smaller then the size listed on the box. This is caused by a difference between the size of a GB as defined by windows versus the maker of the drive. The drive manufacture assumes that 1 GB is 1000 MB, where as windows assumes it is 1024 MB. If you carry these assumptions all the way down to the byte level you get: 640GB = 640000 MB = 6.4 * 10^8 KB = 6.4 * 10^11 bytes this is the base storage size of the drive. Then windows takes this number and does the same in reverse to get the number of GB is displays: 6.4 *10^11 bytes = 6.25 * 10^8 KB = 610351 MB = 596.1 GB There is nothing wrong with the drive, it's just a different unit of measurement.
insert your kingston 64GB drive click start right click on my computer select open you should see your pen drive right click then select format another way is to control panel administrive tools,computer management disk management right click on your drive select format hope this helps
that sounds like it is blank it should be preformatted and if you trying to format it try using ntfs or use its supplied software if it isnt formatting but if the drive shows that as free space that is normall
Go to My computer, right hand mouse click on the pen drive and select Format. If the pen drive is not visible, go to Control Panel select Administrative tools, select Computer management and select Disk management. There will be your drive. Format it from here. Hope that helps.
Your pendrive is affected virus and do the format both pen drives and first cheak with your usb port also once and when you are pushing the pen drive in the pc should be smoth dont press just push some times light is appear but data cabe is not connected to pc
