There can be two reasons.
1. you do not have the software installed on your PC which supports this file.
2. if you know what kind of file is it, the right click on file, select 'Open with' and then select the appropriate program(e.g. if its work file, select microsoft word) hope this helps you.

Usb device not reconised


This message is usually shown when the flash drive is burnt. Try to see if it presents the same message in different computers. if it does, unfortunately it is damaged beyond repair.

If it is recognized as a drive, but it is asked to format the flash drive, try formatting it and see if you can copy and delete files from it. If you cannot, it is really burnt.

Hope you may find this information helpful!

Regards,

Everytime i copy files to my usb flash drive, the files from my usb that was copied has unknown characters on the folders and filenames.. pls help me to solve this problem.. how to repair my flash drive?...


You will probably need to reformat it.

For windows, right click on the drive and hit "Format"

For Mac go to Utilities -> Disk Utility and reformat it from there.

Remember to backup any important files on it first!

Hope this helps!

My Kingston usb flashdrive 16 Gb files was corrupted and so with the installer. Everytime when I insert it shows unknown driver and it's not working. Can you provide us the the installer with this...


You do not need drivers for flash drives. The problem may be your USB ports.

Follow the steps given below to refresh USB ports.

1. Right-click My Computer icon on the desktop, and then select Properties.
2. Click the Hardware tab.
3. Click the Device Manager button.
4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Universal Serial Bus controllers.
5. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
6. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.

Please note, repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.

7. Shut down the computer.

CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected, instead of the Restart option.

8. Wait for 5 seconds and then restart the computer. When the computer restarts, a "Windows has detected new or added hardware" message window will open.

The above steps will refresh the USB ports.

Now connect the USB devices like mouse, video camera, your external usb hard disk...usb hubs...whatever you like and the drivers should install automatically.

Tip: It is always recommended to connect the main usb devices at the rear end usb port, as they require more power to initiate.


If it turns out that the files are indeed corrupted, there are several free recovery programs you can try.

The file system is unknown


The file system is likely corrupted. This can happen if you remove the usb drive from the computer without clicking "Safely remove hardware' first, (in your taskbar).

There is little chance that you can recover the data.

Just in case, try inserting the drive into different usb ports, preferably also on different computers. If the result is always the same, you will have to format your drive.

Insert the drive into a usb port. Assuming you use windows, click Start, click My Computer, find your USB drive in the list and RIGHT click on it. You will see a Format option. Click on that and use default or FAT. A quick format should do.

Good luck.
