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

Kingston DT1 2GB will not allow files to put onto it

My Kingston MSD, even though only half full will not allow any photos or other files to be transferred onto it, acting as though it has become write protected.  I have checked all the settings, storage space and even scanned it for problems with none being found.  Do you have any ideas what could be wrong with the dongle?

Re: Kingston DT1 2GB will not allow files to put onto it

This is not a dongle, a dongle resembles this storage device, but a dongle is uses to authorize the usage of an PRO TOOLS.

Your usb storage drive may need to be reformatted. What computer/OS are you using?

Files copied onto kingston dt1/16gb usb get garbled.

Many people don't realize this, but flash memory wearsout the more you delete and write files to it. How quickly it wears out willdepend on the specific flash drive. Like anything, there is a wide range ofquality in currently available flash memory-based drives. You can make a roughcorrelation with the cost/quality of the device (what you pay is what you get),but even that tends to change over time. Depending on usage and quality itcould be talking as short as months or as long as several years. In extremecases of misuse it could lasting as little as a few weeks.

I have a datatraveler 4gb stick how many photo will it hold

That is not exactly to calculate. It depends on the stored image sizeand quality.
Small pictures could be 400KB a piece, but large ones easily can go up to 6GB
a piece. If you know thye avaerage size of your pictures, you can calculate it.

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.

Just because you transferred it to your external hard drive. You will still have the files on your internal HD. You will need to delete the files off your internal HD and they will still be on your External HD. I had to do this with mine and other clients.

My flash drive made is kingston 8gig and all my files inside are been headen by virus pls what do i do now pls help

If your files are being hidden, you can open it on your computer and then on the Windows Explorer, if you are using Windows, click Tools, Folder Options, View and then choose Show Hidden files and Folders.

Once you were able to see your original files, copy it onto your computer. Make sure though that you will not copy the comprised file or the virus itself. Do a quick scan or if you are sure that you already have backed up your original files, reformat the flash drive.

Move data from one computer to another with kingston 8gb data tra

When you plug in the Flash Drive to your old computer, it will show up in My Computer probably as Removable disk or "Kingston Data Travler". You want to open that link up and drag whatever files you need into that folder. After doing so you put the flash drive in your new computer and repeat the process except you drag the files out of the folder and onto your desktop or a folder of your liking.

Lacie 320 GB Hard Drive acting as if full when it's not.

Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.
