Files on a flash drive canbe corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly. Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon andthen click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flashdrive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove. To restore the flash drive you need to format the flash drive, but you willlose the data stored on the flash drive. If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: - Data and Digital Photo Recovery www.artplus.hr/adapps/eng/dpr.htmwww.CardRecovery.com
To save data on your sandisk all you have to do is to connect that to your USB, When you want to save it just click on the file that your want to save then hit save as then browse for the removable disck icon open it and then save. Copy
What is the USB drive formatted as? Look in My Computer then right click the USB drive, select Properties. See what it says under "File System". My guess is the drive is formatted as FAT32. Now FAT32 has a size limitation of 4GB for a single file, which would explain the error. To get over this you need to reformat the USB drive as NTFS. Then it will accept the 6.95GB file. You can format the drive by right clicking it again and selecting "Format" ... choose NTFS from the drop down menu. Be aware that any data already on the drive will be wiped by the format so be sure to back it up before formatting.
First, have you tried it on another computer? Basically, narrow down the problem- is it the SanDisk, or something with the USB ports on your machine?
Assuming it is the SanDisk, try formatting it. You should be able to format it under Windows Explorer...properties... Or, go into Control Panel... Administrative Tools... Computer Management... Disk Management
If you had files on it- they will probably be history. You could Google for recovery utilities, but such getting your files is doubtful.
Hope this helps!
