Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I tried to open my USB flash drive stick after a while from using it and it says its needs to be reformated. I tried that despite I got some old stuff in it that I do not need anymore, but when I begin the process of reformating it, Windows (Vista) says it cannot complete it every time I try and thus I cannot use the flash drive stick whatsoever. It is a iLogic USB 2.0 Flash Drive, by the way. 1GB worth of memory.

My janome memory craft 350e will not reformate


If you format the drive you will destroy all the files on them. There is software that will recover thumb drive data. Just google usb drive file recovery and you'll find several.

Why my flash usb is don't tell me the files


try plugging your flash drive into a usb port then going into my computer and opening the appropriate drive letter for the flash drive.

You can also put a shortcut to the flash drive on your desktop and simply open it to see what is actually on your flash drive.

You can also use windows explorer and open up your flash drive icon and see a listing of what is on it.

Your problem may be that the flash drive has its own installation program and it has possibly been wiped or cleared accidently.

How do i transfer photos from my hp photosmart m537 camera to sandisk cruzer micro usb 2.0 flash drive 2gb.


Connect the HP camera to your windows pc using the usb cable provided. Open My Computer to ensure that the camera is being properly enumerated (given a hard disk letter). make note of the drive letter assigned.

If you have more than one USB port, insert your cruzer micro 2.0 stick into another USB port. Look in my computer again to determine what drive letter was assigned to the flash stick. Open a windows explorer window for each of the locations. One for the camera, the other for the flash stick. Its likely that the picture files are in a subfolder of a folder called DCIM.

Once you locate the files you want to transfer, you can highlight them using the mouse (click/drag a box around the files you want) and drag them to the other open window (flash stick folder)


If you don't have another available USB slot on the compter, you'll need to copy the files from the camera to a temporary location on your computer and then move them to the flash drive. In this case, make a new folder on the desktop and name it temporaryfiles. open that folder. open the drive letter assigned to the camera and copy whatever files you want from the camera to 'temporaryfiles'...

Then power off the camera and remove the usb cord from the computer. attach the flash disk to the newly free'd up usb port and open a windows explorer window to it. drag whatever files you want from 'temporaryfiles' folder into the folder for the flash stick.

I hope this helps!

Data off 486


If you really sure that the floppy is damaged and canot read even a reformated or formated brand new floppy then are only way out of this to get your files is networking (Assuming that the AST 486 does not have USB port or a CD writer)
  1. Use infra-red to network your laptop with another laptop to get your fules sent (Check i am not quite sure if hthis laptop model AST 486 have infrared, if it have a brown small patch on it around its perimeter then hurey it got it)
  2. You can use direct parallel cables to nework your laptio with anyother computer and get your files. please note you will need the parallel network cable and setting up the network (assuming you are using an old OS as well cause XP can configure your network automatically)
  3. If it has USB (which i doubt) the use a flash stick, or CD writer (I doubt again) then just burn a disk, or use an old external hard drive or external CD writer which comminicates throught the serial port.
