Hello talisman_roc;

It sounds like your permissions are messed up on the flash drive. Since you can see the drive when you insert it, go to My Computer and right click on properties. Go to the security tab and look for the users and what rights they have to access the drive. If you have administrative rights, then you should be able to change any of the setting, or best bet is to add yourself to the list and give yourself full rights. At that point you should be able to do whatever you need to do with that drive.


Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating based on my solution.


Thanks Mark

chek if formating is in fat filesystem, fat 32 has a size limit for single files of 4 GB fat 16 limits it to 2 GB so if you are trying to put a dvd-rip of 4.5 GB there is your problem, anyways right click on the drive in my computer, click-properties, under general you will see what file system it is, to change you will need to format the drive, and be careful because formating deletes everything off targeted drive - to format right click on the drive and select format..., choose ntfs file system and quick format if you want (speeds up the process), (be sure you saved data on hdd beforehand) and hit format. if the issue is not file system related i rly don't know what else could it be

Flashdrive keeps deleting


With all the hours and effort put into progressing in a video game, protecting your saved files becomes an important matter.

Creating a backup on a flash drive ensures that your game will be preserved. Having a copy is also handy if you get a new computer or if you merely want to keep your character safe for a sequel that allows you to import your progress from a previous game.

While you cannot save a game to a flash drive while playing, transferring or copying a saved game file to a flash drive is a simple process.

Locate the saved game files on your hard drive.
The location will depend on the game that you are playing (see Below)

Tips & Warnings

BioWare games save within the "BioWare" folder created in the My Documents folder.
Most games purchased through Steam will be saved under Program Files>Steam>Steam Apps>[Username.]

A Game independently installed will likely create its own folder within Program Files.
You may need to visit the game developer support site to help track down that game's specific location.
Open your flash drive.
Click and drag the entire saved game folder to the flash drive to make a copy.

Depending on the amount of file data, this may take a few minutes to complete.
Do not delete this folder on your hard drive or uninstall the game until you have verified that the saved game files work on other computers.


To transfer the saved game, plug the flash drive into a computer with the same game installed. Open your flash drive. In a separate window, open the same directory location where you found the saved game on the other computer.


Click and drag the saved game folder on your flash drive to the game folder on the new computer.
If a window pops up asking if you would like to overwrite similarly named files, click "Yes."

How do i format the kingston datatraveler 310 256 gb to ntfs file system


Hello insert the drive in the usb port.

When you see the drive in the control panel, right click on it and choose format.

Select NTFS in the selection box, and mark quick format and click start.

This could take a while.

You just have to save ALL the previous saved files, before you format, because the files will be lost, when the the drive is formatet.

Good luck

When you delete files from anything on a computer, they are not really removed. What happens is the record(s) for a given file in the MFT (master file table) are removed and the space used for that give file is marked as available. As long as you haven't been copying new files to the drive. Download and run Recuva which is free. Use the deep scan feature and let it run and see what it is able to recover. Then copy the files to a different disc than the one you are recovery from.

Once you put the flash drive into the USB port, double click on the "my computer" icon. This will open up and show all available drives on your computer. The flash drive will have its' own drive letter. Once you log into i-tunes, when you go to save the file, make sure it goes to the flash drive. If your USB port is not recognizing the flash drive, try to do a system restore to a previous date. Try to go back at least 30 days (if you have created restore points on your system), then re-connect the flash drive and it should begin to install the proper drivers. If this is not your only USB port, try another one, if it is your only port, try plugging another USB device into it and see if it will recognize it.

I cant seem to use my 320 gb mobile hard drive. when i connect it to the usb, my laptop reads it but i cant save files into it..help me please.


try to connect your device into your pc and then, try to save files again, if this doesnt work, try to reformat your hard drive, im sorry to say that all your previous files will be deleted upon the format. after this, make partitions to hard drive. then save some of your files into it. if that doesn't work either, try a disk scan to check if your hard drive has bad sectors.

How to create a flashdrive baground


First of all put the iamge file ( eg. test.jpg) in the root of the Flash drive. Then create a text file there and rename it to desktop.ini to the root of the Flsh drive.. Make sure it's not a .txt file.

Then open the desktop.ini file in notepad and enter following content.
