Re: 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.

I have Kingston DTi /4GB data traveler pen drive but it shows by computer it didn't open open error how to remove this problem?

pen drives behave very strange...some say they are like a betrayed friend...when u need the most they fail....
i still believe in 9 GB DVD...they are more dependable as they cannot be infected by any virus....and can be used for a longer time...also costs a few $$ than the most pen drives...
else u can use a re-writable 4.7 GB DVDs....a box of 10 DVDRW disk costs 2 $....a 8 GB pen drive costs $ 20 aprox

I buy kingston 16gb data traveler usb im try to conact to my pc its not working and showing window not recognize that device.can i get help to solve the problem.thanks

Try re-inserting it a few times.
If not recognised, click for troubleshooting and see driver details. If it says that device drivers either not required or not installed, it means the device drivers required to make the data traveller function are not installed in it.
This is a manufacturing defect.
You can get a replacement for free from your dealer.

Tell me what happens.
I am following up.

8GB Kingston Data Traveller only has 101mb available!

Hi Cristina,
This is Azeem Inam. your data traveller does not accept data over 101MBs. There can be two reasons for this problem. 1. there may be a virus that has provided a limitation on the copying facility. 2. This can be a partition problem. All you need to do is to use the software called DM (Disk manager). This is a DOS versioned software. Go into its advance installation option and then accept the hard disk kingston data traveller. It will take you to another menu showing the partition styles you may choose. you'll have to choose FAT32 type. then in the next menu you'll have to choose partition size by pressing enter button. and then accepting format you are done. it will start working as new again. Thanks for consulting your problem.

MFC application in kingston data traveller encountered problem and needs to be closed

how did you try to format ?, try to unistall the driver when complete put the drive back in usb port. if that doesnt work keep the drive in port and open my computer right click on your thumb drive and go to properties click on tools and try error checking. this is probably where you try to format. once test is done pull drive out and reboot then put drive back in
