I have a very old Imation superdisk drive, 9" by 6" size. And I can't find a driver to download

If it is the "internal" Imation SuperDisk drive, then set the drive's "master/slave" jumper (just like you would set the jumper on a disk-drive or CD/DVD drive), and connect it to one of the IDE ribbon-cable connectors (which usually connect disk/CD/DVD drives to the motherboard).

No additional drivers are required, in the above configuration.

KINGSTON removable disk error

Find and check real free space go to my computer and right click your driver letter and click properties it will show what is real ammount of disk. For one 4GB file it must not be problem but for meny little file can take more space besider their sum of capacity is 4GB. At format check correct ammount of data "capacity" is 8GB (7.9) also file system for NTFS or FAT32. FAT cant bear 8GB.

Pen drive

First thing is you can try to detect your pen drives with Linux. 

(DSL Linux is just about 50 MB download. You'll need to burn it on to a CD as an IMAGE and not copy on the CD directly, then boot with the CD.It will automatically mount your USB drive and you can cpy the data to your hard disk and later format the USB drive.) 

Get it from here: 

If that too fails, then you can try recovering using a data recovery software. Or contact me and I can personally help but a live chat session would be better since posting here will take and waste time. You could contact me on 

and then we can proceed to chat and solve this issue. I won't take any charge. I'll be happy helping getting the data since I know how it feels to lose precious data.
