Hi krishnadas06,

Unless you want to copy files that are larger than 4GB you only need to format this drive with FAT32. Do the format and see if that clears it up. You also should be using the "Safely Eject" icon in your task tray prior to unplugging the drive to prevent any possible file corruption.

I recommend that you re-format the drive/device in the system you intend to use it in most.

If you format in the NT mode then your Windows 98 etc will not be able to read the data... this MAY be your problem?

If you are using NT see if it gives you the option to format in 32 bit mode? You MAY be able to use it with both operating systems then.

Hope this helps!

I am using kingston 8gb pendrive it is taking half an hour to copy 600mb of it can be improved?please give me suggestions......

Your computer may have both "USB 1.1" and "USB 2.0" ports.
The speed of data-transfer through a USB 2.0 port is at least 5 times faster than through a USB 1.1 port.

So, connect your USB memory-stick to a USB 2.0 port.

Files in my kingston pendrive does not open up

Hi manoj_clc,

The "other PC" needs to have the same application installed that created the files. It sounds likely that is the problem for the other PC. If the files are failing to open using the PC that originally copied the files, then try formatting the USB drive (formatting deletes all data). Before you copy the file again, make sure the same file opens from your computer prior to copying it. Now copy the file to it the USB drive again.

8GB Kingston Data Traveller only has 101mb available!

Hi Cristina,
This is Azeem Inam. your data traveller does not accept data over 101MBs. There can be two reasons for this problem. 1. there may be a virus that has provided a limitation on the copying facility. 2. This can be a partition problem. All you need to do is to use the software called DM (Disk manager). This is a DOS versioned software. Go into its advance installation option and then accept the hard disk kingston data traveller. It will take you to another menu showing the partition styles you may choose. you'll have to choose FAT32 type. then in the next menu you'll have to choose partition size by pressing enter button. and then accepting format you are done. it will start working as new again. Thanks for consulting your problem.

Usb stick

Hi travlyn,

If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista, you just need to plug it into a free USB port on your laptop or desktop computer. The OS will automatically find the hardware, then install it. A popup will show up asking what you want to do. You can select there open the folder to open up the contents of the drive. Otherwise you can just close this up and just goto MY COMPUTER and access the USB stick from there.

The USB drive should be ready to receive data, you can actually drag or drop files into it or copy paste the items into the drive. Or if you are making documents or spreadsheets you can directly use the drive to save files.

It's very easy, you should try it out once you're in front of your computer.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Usb software

be sure you have Microsoft ActiveSync installed:
once this is installed, then connect you phone and follow the steps to sync. Once connected, you should be able to browse the contents of your phone from My Computer (copy and paste files or whatever).

I can offer a suggestion or two. In order to tell if the problem is the flash drive or the computer, try attaching it to a different computer, and test it with similar file transfers.

If it behaves the same, then it is probably faulty. There's only a slight chance that running a Check Disk on it will improve things. (in My Computer, Right-Click on the flash drive, then click on Properties, then the Tools tab, then the Check Now button).

If it seems fine on a different computer, then try attaching it to your own computer on different USB ports. In particular, do not attach to a USB hub, but directly to a front or back port. If you are successful in finding a good port, then consider the previously used USB port to be faulty.
