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

1 Answer

Undifined problem Hi,I'm using a 2gb kingston usb (DTI cn952048 28032-101 AOOFL CHINA). I've recently encountered a problem with transferring data. I copied a word file (about 500 Kb) and could'n read that file again. Sometimes, it seems to to be overwritten by another file, for example I open that file (It still has the .doc extension and correct file size) but it show the content of another text file that i stored before in the usb. I also copied a jpeg file and brought to other machines, there they could'nt detect the type of file, even though in window explore it still show the file name with .jpg and file size.Hope that I described the problem clearly.Any advice would be highly appreciated.Cheers,S.P.

Re: Undifined problem

You want to Check Disk for errors as soon as possible. If using Windows, right-click on the drive in My Computer, click on Properties, then the Tools tab, then the Check Now button, then the Start button.

This can happen with any drive if the connection to the drive is lost too soon after saving a file to it. Always use the little 'Safely Remove ...' icon for the drive first, before removing any flash drive.

When a file is saved, the data has to be written to available clusters, the directory has to be updated, and the cluster map has to be updated. In this case, it appears the directory was updated, but either the cluster map had not been updated so that the clusters were still available to be overwritten by a later file, and/or the data itself had not finished being saved, so the old contents of its clusters were still there.

Hi sirmac,

If formatting doesn't clear up the problem then it just needs to be replaced. Contact Kingston Tech Support for a replacement.

Kingston DTI/2GBFE

I can offer a suggestion or two. In order to tell if the problem is the flash drive or the computer, try attaching it to a different computer, and test it with similar file transfers.

If it behaves the same, then it is probably faulty. There's only a slight chance that running a Check Disk on it will improve things. (in My Computer, Right-Click on the flash drive, then click on Properties, then the Tools tab, then the Check Now button).

If it seems fine on a different computer, then try attaching it to your own computer on different USB ports. In particular, do not attach to a USB hub, but directly to a front or back port. If you are successful in finding a good port, then consider the previously used USB port to be faulty.
