You will need to locate the USB drive by opening Windows Explorer, and navigating to the "My Computer" folder. (You may have a shortcut on your desktop for this, if not, you can tell the computer you want one from your "Control Panel" menu) USB Drives will be listed as removeable drives, usually with drive letters D, E, F, G, H, etc..

Click that, and there you go!

SOURCE: My external hard drive suddenly won't show up in Finder

Hello

Okay , so there are some steps to figure out what is wrong with your external.

Firstly , if your computer makes a sound when you plug in your external , go to Start-Control Panel-Administrative Tools-Computer Management-Disk Management , and see if your external drive is listed here with your local drives. If it is listed , right click on the drive and change the drive letter to make it appear in "my computer".

If your drive does not make a connection sound when connecting to your computer and also does not show up , please follow the next step.

Remove the hard drive from the casing if possible and install it in your computer case or another external case.If the drive works , the problem is with the casing and you can ignore the drive.

Now , if the problem is with the casing , there are still 3 possibilities.

  1. The USB cable between the drive and the computer may be damaged.
  2. The circuit board which connects your drive to the interface of the external may be blown.
  3. The power supply (if applicable) may have a blown transformer.
The latter is the easiest to diagnose , does your external light up at all when you plug in the power? If not , then this is probably your problem. On the bottom of the adapter is a label which you will be able to use to have a new adapter made at your local electronics shop and this will cost about $30 max. They will also be able to test the adapter with a clamp meter to see if this is really the problem and this should be free.

The second component you want to test is the USB cable. If you have a printer , swop out the cables and see if your printer functions normally. Most externals use the same connector so you should be able to test it in this manner. If the cable works go on to the last step. If the cable is defective , replace it with a new one which you can find for about $10 at most electronics and chain stores.

The last component to test is the circuit board. This is a bit of a grey zone as you probably won't be able to spot the blown component unless it failed really badly. With the casing already opened , locate the external's circuit board and check to see if you have any blackened components or fluids leaking from some components. If all the other components of the external worked perfectly , then this is the faulty part. It is not really economical to replace the circuit as most of the time it is out of production by the time you need to replace it and it still costs a lot even if it is available so if your drive is working perfectly when connected via sata or IDE on your computer , the best is to buy a new casing and place your old drive in the new casing.

A casing costs about $50 and you could get it at most tech shops and big chain stores like Best Buy.

I hope this solves your problem and please reply if you need more help.

Kind Regards
Andrea

What is the password for the new kingston USB DT109?


It is true that locking mobile storage devices, such as USB drives, with Imation Lock is an excellent way to protect your data.


However, using Imation Lock with a Kingston USB drive can create problems.

Learn how to unlock your Kingston USB drive so you can use it once again.


Ensure that your Kingston USB drive has been removed from your computer's USB port.

Start the Imation Lock software by double clicking the Imation Lock.


Plug in the Kingston USB into a USB port immediately after the "Please Insert the Device or Run This Utility as Privileged User" message appears.


Access your Kingston USB drive by clicking Start > Computer.

Double click on the device.


Start the Imation Lock software again by double clicking the Imation Lock.

Disable the password protection by clicking the open lock icon.


or


If you have password protected a USB drive or partition on your computer and have since forgotten the password, you will need to completely erase the drive.


Erasing and reformatting the drive will remove any password protection, software and data on the drive preventing you from accessing the drive.


The process is simple using Window's Disk Management utility.


Log into the computer as the administrator.


Open the Windows Start menu, select "Run," type "Compmgmt.msc" and click "OK." In Windows Vista and Windows 7, simply type the command into the "Search" field.


Select "Disk Management."


Locate the password-protected drive.

Right-click it and select "Delete." Confirm the action.


The drive will be erased and become unallocated free space.


Hope this helps.

How to upload pictures by my usb


That really is a matter of if when plugged in to the USB port of the computer you are using, if computer you are using can recognize the drive.

If you are using Windows XP, check "My Computer" and you should see the Kingston USB jump drive showing as an device icon.

In Vista and Windows 7 select "Computer" and you should also see the USB jump drive listed as a device icon.

If you are using a Mac OS X computer with your Kingston jump drive, providing the drive has been formatted with the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format, or the MS-DOS format (which is readable on both Mac and PC platforms), it will show up
in the Finder sidebar and on your Desktop.

Either platform however, to load pictures onto your Kingston is easy, all you have to do is either copy the pictures from there respective folder or location and either right click on the Kingston 2GB HD icon and paste the pictures.

Or you can double click on the Kingston 2GB USB icon and paste or drag the pictures into the open window of the Kingston 2GB USB jump drive.

That is honestly as simple as it is.

Now, on the other hand, here are a few steps, if you want to upload to an online resource which allows photo uploads from another source, namely your computer..

When you use the upload feature of that website or webpage to upload your pictures to, no matter whether you are on a Mac or PC, you simply have to click that uploader's Browse or Upload button.

Next, simply locate the Kingston 2GB USB jump drive in My Computer, (Windows XP), Computer (Vista , Win 7) or Devices and/or Desktop (Mac OS X).

Then start selecting and uploading your pictures onto that website or webpage with your Kingston as the source drive.

Yes, I have given you a number of options, but hopefully you will see the ease of using any of these methods, again depending on what computer operating system you are using, how easy it is to upload photos from your Kingston (DTIU3/2GB) 2 GB USB Hard Drive.
