USB Data Key

Hi,
I'm having trouble with my Imation 1GB USB device.

Firstly I think there is a virus on the key - any idea how I get rid of it?

Secondly, when I work on say a word document on my Laptop (which has Microsoft 2007) and save to my key then insert the key into my PC (which uses Microsoft 2003) it won't let me access that document or any files I have on the key. Any ideas?

What is the password for the new kingston USB DT109?


It is true that locking mobile storage devices, such as USB drives, with Imation Lock is an excellent way to protect your data.


However, using Imation Lock with a Kingston USB drive can create problems.

Learn how to unlock your Kingston USB drive so you can use it once again.


Ensure that your Kingston USB drive has been removed from your computer's USB port.

Start the Imation Lock software by double clicking the Imation Lock.


Plug in the Kingston USB into a USB port immediately after the "Please Insert the Device or Run This Utility as Privileged User" message appears.


Access your Kingston USB drive by clicking Start > Computer.

Double click on the device.


Start the Imation Lock software again by double clicking the Imation Lock.

Disable the password protection by clicking the open lock icon.


or


If you have password protected a USB drive or partition on your computer and have since forgotten the password, you will need to completely erase the drive.


Erasing and reformatting the drive will remove any password protection, software and data on the drive preventing you from accessing the drive.


The process is simple using Window's Disk Management utility.


Log into the computer as the administrator.


Open the Windows Start menu, select "Run," type "Compmgmt.msc" and click "OK." In Windows Vista and Windows 7, simply type the command into the "Search" field.


Select "Disk Management."


Locate the password-protected drive.

Right-click it and select "Delete." Confirm the action.


The drive will be erased and become unallocated free space.


Hope this helps.

My blackjack II hangs at the windows mobile splash screen


It must have been something you have installed. I think you'll have to hard reset your device, in order to get rid of your current status. You, most probably, know that a hard reset will set your device to its factory defaults, thus deleting all programs you have installed, as well as your personal data. Hope you have a recent backup, to be used to restore your settings afterwards. Anyway, to hard reset your device, firstly turn it off. Then, press and hold the directional pad UP for a couple of seconds, and, then, press the power button to turn it on again. Keep holding the key until some instructions come up on-screen. Follow them.
Hope your device comes back to life soon.
Cheers! Carlos

I have an 8G Imation flash uSB. It has worked fine till recently but when I insert into port now it shows the files with hieroglyphic names and says it can't open them. Is there something I can do? Thanks...


i think you can defrag a usb drive, if it shows on your 'my computer' list of removable drives- you might try this- you can also run an anti-virus check on it, if you have an anti-virus prog. if that don't work, and the data is stored on your hd, then try re-formatting it.
if that don't work, toss it, and get a new usb flash drive!
good luck!

Virus


Yep Formatting certainly will get rid of virus ! But if you do not want to lose your contacts or personals datas you can try free antivirus softwares for symbian phones
also tips to format :
Here’s how you can remove, clear and clean the virus from your Nokia cell phone :
1> Remove the memory card from your cell phone and keep it in a clean and safe place. 2> Turn on your cell phone and key in #7370# 3> Security code prompt comes up, if you have set a security key, then key it in, else key in the default security key which is 12345.

This step is actually hard resetting your mobile phone. Which means that you might lose all data if you have not backed it up and moved it on to the memory card. Hence it is very important that you remove the memory card before performing this process.
Chances are that your memory card may also be infected by the virus. To remove the virus from memory card, put it on a card reader, connect it to your PC, either run one of the latest anti-virus software on it or format it if the anti-virus fails to remove the virus (You’ll end up losing the data here), which should clean it up.
Put the memory card back in your cell phone, restart the cell phone, which is now clean of the virus.

Sandisk Cruzer 1GB drive suddenly not working


DO NOT panic! Try this: restart your computer and plug your USB in again(this helps to clean the buffer), see if you drive can be recognized.

If you still can't access the data inside, try this data recovery program Wondershare Data Recovery. Get the program here,

Mac Data Recovery (Mac OS version)
Windows Data Recovery (Windows Version)

Take care - Before those items are recovered, stop saving more files to the USB in case the file data are overwritten!
