    I did not see a NEW HARDWARE DETECTED next to my clock. I went to MYCOMPUTER, but I did not see a NEW DRIVE listed under "Drives with removable storage".
    I have a OP Windows XP; this is my first 2GB USB Flash Drive and I have no previous experience on how to format and/or install it.
    Thank you.

Typically, if you have a USB flash stick and are using windows, it works as a plug and play device. IE - when you plug it it - windows will automaticall detect it and you will see - on the tray by your clock in lower right hand of screen - something along the lines of "new hardware detected" then to actually use the stick - go into my computer - and you should see a new drive listed under "Drives with Removable storage" this will be the drive where you save thing that you want saved on the stick.

hope this helps.

My 1 gb micro sd card is corrupted and my nokia E63 phone and DELL inspiron is not recognising it


    • 1 If your aim is to repair a corrupted SD card so that you can use it to store files then proceed to step #2.
      If your aim is to recover the files on the SD card without erasing them, proceed to step #5.
    • 2 Insert the SD card into a digital camera card slot and choose to format your card. If this doesn't work then move on to the next step...
    • 3 Place the SD card into your computers SD card slot.
      Right click on the SD card drive letter IF it appears and choose to "format."
      If this doesn't work, proceed to the next step...
    • 4:You will need to go to the website
      http://www.sdcard.org/consumers/formatter/eula/
      Here you will download, install, and run the program to format your SD card. This is the most advanced step of the three, but most likely to work 99% of the time.

My micro sd card when i plug say format but as i format it giving error of "Data write protected" but my micro sd card have no lock or other lock and the company of my sd card is Red bridge.Plz solve this...


Hello there!

Well somehow data on your usb flash is write protected, maybe before you locked part of your usb pen drive and losted that encryptor software on your usb.

Solution is next, find any software for formatting usb flash memory sticks, force format it and there you go. Thats about it! =)
