If you know the make of it, search the net for a software upgrade. That may work. I had the same issue with a Philips 4Gb stick and an upgrade fixed the problem for a few months. Then it appeared again. Since it was still under warranty, I returned it and got a refund. Good luck!

How can I Delete an old map in the memory of a Garmin nuvi 765T GPS Receiver.

You can delete an old map by connecting the unit up to your PC, using a USB to mini-USB cable. Once the Nuvi shows up as a valid drive letter in windows, double click on the drive and then go to the Garmin directory. Look for the file named gmapprom.img. It should be a file near 1 GB. Right click on the file and select delete.

This will delete the map. Warning, once you do this, your GPS will no longer function and you will need to install a new map.

Before you delete it, always make a backup of the map file on your PC.

Once you are finished, be sure to SAFELY remove the drive in Windows BEFORE you remove the USB cable.

I cant rename my toshiba canvio 3 1tb

Check to see if there is a file in the root directory called "autorun.inf". (Make sure you can view hidden files.) If there is, either delete it, or move it to a backup folder. Now you should be able to rename your portable hard drive.

If you don't see the new name take effect right away, Safely remove the drive, unplug it and plug it back in. The changes should show up immediately.

How can I recover a deleted file on my Cruzer USB stick? I don't have any security problems, I just accidentally deleted the file. Please help!

if you have choosen only delete option then you can restore it from recycle bin but in most cases the deleted files from usb drive does not go into recycle bin, rather they are pemanently deleted. if you have choosen shift+delete then there is no way that you can get the file back as shift+delete permanently deletes the files..

Downloaded files wont delete

Hi.. If the files were loaded to the SD card directlt from your computer via a card reader, try deleting them while in Safe Mode.If loaded directly to your phone, check if there is a setting on the phone or on the file properties to protect the files. If so, adjust it as needed, then attempt to delete the files again.

Non ntfs problem

One possible work around
Provided you have access to another PC and feel comfortable with taking your hard drive out of your PC and putting it back in

1. buy a USB external hard drive enclosure and install your hard drive into it
2. connect this USB hard drive to another PC
3. create some free space by deleting some files (see Safe files to delete below for details)
4. reinstall hard drive back into your PC and try to boot normally

Safe files to delete
1. temporary files - on Win XP these are normally in "C:\WINDOWS\Temp"
2. temporary internet files - on Win XP these are normally in "C:\Documents and Settings\[Your Username]\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files"
3. other temporary files - on Win XP these are normally in "C:\Documents and Settings\[Your Username]\Local Settings\Temp"
Note that if you have more than one user account on the PC, then each user could have files that are safe to delete in the folders mentioned in number 2 and 3
