Trouble with USB Flash at Picture Kiosk

I have not used a picture Kiosk before. Not hard to use but the problem lies here. For work I had to develop pictures for myself and a coworker. We put the pictures on my "Sandisk Cruiser micro 4gb" flash drive. We use a mac. There were over 400 pictures to develop. Time deadline the whole deal. I went to Kinko's, the machine wouldn't read my usb flash. However the person before me had a picture on a disc and that didn't work for him either so I proceeded to Target cuz the woman said that it didn't work for a couple others ahead of us. However I believe Kinko's machine can't read mac usb flash pictures.

At Target, I had to use a Kiosk as well. The machine I went to was working fine until......I viewed my pictures. They were 1900 photo's that I had taken for various other jobs. I ejected my flash, went down to my car and used my Mac Powerbook to take everything off my Flash except my one folder with our pictures. However I realized what I was deleting as far as photo's didn't even show up when I was in target--it was a total mishmash of pictures from months. I went back up to the store, and again it only read all of the same 1900 photo's from other projects and nothing else. I was so frustrated. I then was told to burn discs. my computer burner was giving me problems and being the large amt of photo's i had to burn multiple discs and well, it didn't finish besides the guy at target that said he wouldn't get all my photo's done by close and it was not much after 7p.

I went to Rite aid after getting screamed at more than once on the phone from one of my bosses, they couldn't read my Flash cuz they didn't have a usb slot. I went to a 1 hour photo and the only thing that showed up was the original pictures in the folder that that I wanted to print. There was no old 1900+ picutures on it. The gentleman at the one hour tried to figure out the mystery by putting my usb flash into 2 pc's and one new mac and his machine and all that showed up were what I wanted in the first place. They got done but it was harrowing to say the least and think that this problem may have screwed me for other calls from this crew, cuz I am freelance and work is an on call basis. Everything was a .jpg
I will only go to one hour stores now but if I cannot get to one and the only option i have is target or kinko's i don't know what to do....
How do i get the other 1900+ pics off my usb flash so I can have a clean slate and just print what I want? How do I Reformat the Sandisk 4GB micro Cruzer?
I don't want to buy a gazillion flashs' and well, my burner is on the fritz so that is a whole other can of worms so this is my only viable option.
I am sure reset it? but where did thos pictures come from they didn't show up when I put it into my computer.
apologies this is so much to read but It was one problem after another.

Re: Trouble with USB Flash at Picture Kiosk

The issues you've experienced may have several folds. Firstly, your Mac actually creates a ".Trash" folder on your flash drive and dumps your "deleted" pictures into that folder. After that, you can't find your pictures from your Mac anymore unless you go through your trash can. On the PC end, the .Trash folder may not be hidden, depending on the PC's view settings, so you may be able to see them. Secondly, you seem to have tried to delete some pictures and that may have put the files in limbo if you pulled the drive out of the socket too soon. These files are treated differently depending on the computer's operating system version and configuration. Lastly, a problem lies in that the Sandisk Cruzer with U3 Smart has really poor software that it conflicts with other software installed on the PC. Sandisk's current solution is for you to uninstall those software and wait for the firmware updates.

As for getting your 1900 pictures back, check your trash in the Mac with the drive attached. If nothing turns up, then go to a XP PC that has view hidden folders/files option enabled. You should be able to locate the pictures then. If not, ask around for file recovery utilities for PC and try those. But don't copy new data on the flash drive or you may overwrite the old pictures. Finally, to wipe everything clean... you should format the device from a PC if you intend to use it between Macs and PCs. If you are going to format the device in PC, just right click on the drive and select "Format." Remember to choose FAT32 as the partition table type for interoperability.

USB port will not work with my WD Elements flash drive. Any suggestions what the problem is?

Try the flash drive with another unit and see if it works. If it does then the problem lies with the original computer. If it does not,, perhaps it needs to be formatted or something is wrong with it.

Problem turning on hd

WD = Western Digital , 250Gigabyte external USB drive.

This is where you may need to perform all the USB checks and trouble shooting in the book + load any driver software that came with the drive.

also I would need to know what motherboard and what operating system you are using before I can help farther.

normaly windows 98 and 98 se did was just not able to make proper use of the USB ports , also on nforce2 motherboards service pack2 was required to enable the USB 2.0 feature
we are constantly lied to by the computer industry so get used to it untill the feds crack their skulls.

and remember if it's not hebrew , it's a lie :-> lhime shalom.

Need flash drive for my Windows 98SE

if it's a sandisk cruiser micro U3 2Gig flash stick God help you.

windows 98 se had serious USB issues and lack of support of any kind for USB 2.0

USB 2.0 can be done ONLY if you have USB 2.0 ports ( chip )

and ONLY if you have loaded XP professional 2002 WITH service pack 2 ,,, it's time to slap these vendors around for lying and lying about USB 2.0

the bright side is , it's not broken , more than likely an XP pro 2002 with service pack 2 will see the stick right off the bat

if that happens , then you know it's the fault of the computer that can't see the durn thing.

it's time to slap sandisk up side the head for lack of clear cut documentation on this issue.

for example my vista machine can't see mine anymore but my XP professional 2002 with service pack 2 sure the heck can.

that just goes to show you vista is stupid and so was windows 98 and aren't we all tired of this ****.
