Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I want to load information onto the flash drive but I can't get past password, locking/unlocking and partitions.

I purchased a TDK 8gb flash drive and all I'm able to do is change the password and lock and unlock the security system. The instructions I've seen want me to do a partitian also. I'm not interested in security, passwords or partitions; all I want to do is load information onto this flash drive. Can you be of any help? thanks, Nick

When you insert it into the pc and the box opens asking what you want to do,just close the box,Then double click on My computer and you will see it listed as a drive,You can double click it and once it open,you can drag and drop anything you want on it or once you know the drive letter assigned to it,you can go to whatever file you want to store on it and just right click the file,click send to,and choose the drive.

This soultion assumes you ahve a drive brand new from the box as thre are unpluging issues that can corrupt boot sectors. Either way Reformating should solve the problem.

Not knowing how much you already know let me say that most newer computers using such operating systems as Vista/XP/OSX do not require flash drive specific drivers. Unless you have a special third party security application the solution is likely in formating the disk to a file system standard your computer(s) use. NTFS is required for Vista but FAT less than 32GB works under XP, Mac and earlier Windows operating systems. If your drive shows up on the desktop but you can't write to it it is likely a different file management format than your computer's operating system uses. Reformating should clear this. Copy any files (if any) on the drive which you wish to keep before formating.

That said and not knowing which TDK model you have, You'll need to initially partition it while formating for the drive file system that matches your need.

As a part of your formatting, I am suggesting a partition of 1 to insure maximum storage space is accessible. On the outchance you may have a counterfiet drive(which is hard to detect otherwise) this process will tell you the true amount of storage on the drive. No dispersion on you but the fact is there are many USB drives of lower capacity which were repackaged under various name brands as higher capacity drives. The file management sector is forged to report the higher capacity on these bogus drives.

Once formatted with a compatible file management system you should be able to "drag and drop" files onto the drive image or you can use the "copy to function" in windows.

TDK Trans-IT 8gb flash drive is unable to format. It gives an error that says this disk is write protected, please assist.


get a copy of the software from TDK itself at:

http://www.tdk-media.eu/downloads/trans_it_usb_password_pr_english.exe

it's a self contained .exe file no installation needed. This will format your flash for you if you need to and the program gets retained.

if you want a pc based format copy the software somewhere in your hard drive. in myu computer right click your flashdisk, format (fat 32 better). There clean as a whistle. copy back flashlock, then partition as you wish.

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!

Only 5GB on TDK TRANS-IT USB 2.0 Flash Drive 8GB


Not the solution you might like but there have been reports of bogus/ counterfeit smaller capacity sticks/drives relabeled and programed to report higher capacities. I've been told that running a formatting/partitioning application on them reflect the true capacity but have not had to try this solution myself..

Submitted for information only but please rate so I accumulate a lot of unanswered solutions, Thanks
