Question about Kingston (DTIU3/2GB) 2 GB USB Hard Drive

1 Answer

I am ignorant. Just bought a2gb data travelor that was completly

Without instructions. Was told that I need one to help me edit a book that I need to update and prepare it for Print on Demand production. Problem with my few years old XB Word 2002.
Problem is can't write. i.e. I can enter an edit but cannot save it.
Was told can save as if I copy it to a datatraveler.

I hve lost weeks trying to get this thing going. I don't expect to live much longer and really really want to get my book printed. NO one understands what needs to be done, or even cares very much. My copyright will last seventy years after I am gone. (but not if I can't do what I must do. Lou

Hi lwebber,

The Data Traveler simply stores files. It has nothing to do with editing your Word document. Once you have saved your work on your computer (in the MyDocuments folder for instance) then you can copy the finished file to the Data Traveler. Right click on the file and click Copy then right click on the Data Traveler and click Paste. This process will copy a file to the Data Traveler.

My computer crashed, and i cannot find my data on my book, How do I retrrieve it


If just your computer crushed, it could not delete data from your book. Try it on some other computers, you should find the data without any problem. If your computer crashed and you need data from the hard drive(the one inside the computer, always available), you can remove your hard drive and try it on other computer. If you are not skilled with manipulating hardware, you should probably call an IT assistance

Hope this helps

My Book Essential Edition showing as Local Disk

Then how about an explanation?

What most likely happened (and Windows has a bad habit of doing this...) is that the partition tables on your hard drive were deleted.  Either by an error in Windows or by some other application that is running.

Otherwise... It could have also been caused by not using the "Safely Unplug Hardware" function in Windows.

That's right.  That little icon that you normally ignore about plugging and unplugging USB devices?  You REALLY need to pay attention to it when it comes to data storage devices.  I myself have had this very same issue occur with my external drive.  It happened to me a couple times this month in fact.

I took my drive and disconnected it from my Windows machine and plugged it into my Linux machine.  I couldn't mount it.  Linux informed me via the console that I was using that it was most likely due to being unplugged from a Windows machine without using the proper method.

The dismount of the drive in Windows was inconsistent and unclean.  I actually lost the partition table.  Not a big deal.  I recovered the data easily enough...

I then re-tested this 3 times.  Each time, Linux refused to mount the drive until I plugged it back into the Windows machine, run a disk check on it and then PROPERLY disconnect the drive.

Each time I did it properly, Linux mounted the drive without any fuss.  (I believe that this message is a function of the ntfs-3g package.  The one that lets you read AND write to NTFS partitions in Linux.  I've never had an issue with it before I started using that package.  Very nice.)

So don't ignore that little icon in the future.  It really does make a difference.
