Re: problem with usb pen drive

Hi Vardhaman,

Is the USB port you are connecting the stick to enabled in your BIOS?. Is the Port on your Mobo or on a seperate PCI slot.

How do I format a Kingston 8-GB Data Traveler 101 flash drive which is write-protected?

You can try to go to safemode (to go to safemode restart the computer then tap F8 while restarting then select Safe Mode with Command Prompt) Note: you have to have the flash drive connected before restarting After loading files if your USB Memory Stick drive letter is (F) for example then write as C:\windows\system32>F: and press enter F:\>format F: and press enter If it ask you (Y/N) then press (Y) and press enter It should reformat the usb flash drive

You can also check out the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
The value should be "0".

I have an HP pen drive 4GB. From last one week it is not being detected in any system.

Sometimes when a flashmemory stick or USB external hard drive fails because it was not removed fromthe USB port properly. If the device is removed byjust pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, youmust click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select thedevice you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so When the flash memoryUSB hard drive device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restoreit by reformatting it. Insert the flash or USB hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - AdministrativeTools - Computer Management - Disk Management. Then right click on Disk 1removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted itwill indicate that it is Healthy. You need to format the flash or external drive. Format thedrive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchangedbetween MACs and PCs also between XP/Vista and earlier versions of Windows). Otherwise format the USB flash drive in NTFS.
Insert the flash or external hard drive into the USB port then Click on ControlPanel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flashdrive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Health

Is there any way to update BIOS, or any alternative method to provide SATA RAID drivers during Setup thru Floppy. Can I use my Pen Drive or CD to supply RAID Drivers

No you can't update the BIOS for that. But yes, you can load them on an USB memory stick and load it from there.
Or you can create a customized install disk as shown here

Download via a computer that *does* have Internet access.
Copy the downloaded-file to a USB memory-stick.
Move the USB memory-stick to your computer.

Usb problem

You shouldn't need the USB driver 2.0 from mercury because windows installs this with SP2. Suggest you un-install what you installed from mercury & update your version of windows (completley), through "Windows Update". Once windows is all updated & you have finished with a reboot. Plug your pen drive in a opened usb port. Open windows explorer. Scroll down & you should see an icon (left side of explorer), thats named like, Removable Disk. Give windows time to see the device. After a few minutes if your pen device does not show up try another usb port. One you know does work. If after a couple of minutes go by & you still don't see the device listed in explorer I would say the device is defective. Your Mp4 uses a cable to connect to the usb. Try connecting to another PC's usb port. It is possible the cable is dirty or bad.
