Acer Aspire M5100: Won't transfer Files/Data to larger USB Drives

Hello FixYa Experts,

I have tried Acer, Kingston and Microsoft among others, to try to resolve this inherent problem. I also even tried "Reloading/Restoring" to the original setup, but I still have the same problem:" It can' t find the files to transfer; it then Freezes-up; the Windows Explorer won't show the "Drive Properties" until I unplug the USB Kingston 16GBDataTraveler Drive.

It works fine on all computers with Windows XP and some others with Windows Vista but not mine Acer Aspire M5100 with "Windows Vista 32 Home Premium". What is going on and can you help me and others with this confusing issue?

Sincerely,

Doug C.

My flashdrive won't respond at all. I think that it was somehow disconnected on the inside, but I have no way of knowing. Is there any way that I can retrieve the data or fix the flashdrive?


you can try some data recovery software. You can see
http://www.asoftech.com/articles/undelete-files-from-usb-drive.html
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the flash drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the flash drive and recover your files.

Files in my kingston pendrive does not open up


Hi manoj_clc,

The "other PC" needs to have the same application installed that created the files. It sounds likely that is the problem for the other PC. If the files are failing to open using the PC that originally copied the files, then try formatting the USB drive (formatting deletes all data). Before you copy the file again, make sure the same file opens from your computer prior to copying it. Now copy the file to it the USB drive again.

Once transferred the data to the USB, it shows its correpted.


I recommend that you re-format the drive/device in the system you intend to use it in most.

If you format in the NT mode then your Windows 98 etc will not be able to read the data... this MAY be your problem?

If you are using NT see if it gives you the option to format in 32 bit mode? You MAY be able to use it with both operating systems then.

Hope this helps!
