SOURCE: 8gb TDK trans-it flash memory is invisible

Hello,

You can try this out:
After powering up your system, and you have plugged the flash drive, then Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.

On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your flash drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.

This should make your Flash Drive to be detected automatically.

Kindly keep me posted about the problem

Hope this helps you out.

Goodluck!

How can i convert 4GB pendrive to 8GB ...?


There is no way of doing this. If your pen drive is 4GB, that means it has only 4GB of memory chips in it. The only way to get 8GB is to buy an 8GB drive. Do not buy an upgraded (to 8GB) one, as they are lower memory ones that have had the firmware tinkered with to show 8GB, when the actual memory capacity is far less.

Why only 3GB free on 8GB attache flash drive when everything has been deleted


What operating system are you using it on and what file system did you format the Flash drive with? If you are using an OS that has a file system lower than fat32 or if you formatted it with a file system lower than fat32 then that is why It shows less than 8GB total.

Pqi 8gb pendrive showing the error 0x8007045d


It seems that the drive may have corrupt data sectors. Unfortunately this is not generally repairable with flash memory, and you should take the pen drive back and have it replaced under warranty.
