    It reads Error copying file or folder Cannot copy file 001: Cannot find the specified file. Make sure you specify the correct path and file name.

  • dianev1978 Jan 26, 2008

    No .. there is no other error that pops up..

    When I go to Disk Management there is no drive there. Just the two drives that I already have partitioned.

    Sorry dumb question but where would I check that? And if the proper drivers aren't installed where do I go to get the right ones. Thanks for your help and quick response.

    I have a 8GB Kingston dataTraveler and I can not write anything on it. only on my computer. on every other PC is OK. And other USB storage devices work fine on my PC. I tried everything, but so far I found no solution. I can copy files from it, but not on it.

If you don't mind loosing any data on the drive, go to the control panel, and select [Performance and Maintenance] then go to administrative tools, locate the option that says [Computer Management] in the window that pops up, look for the tab that says Disk Management. In the window, find the drive, select it, and hit delete. select yes on the window that pos up. Now right click on the drive which should now have a sub-header that says "Unpartitioned Space" and select format. Leave all of the Default option in the wizard that comes up, and see if this fixes the problem.

    Weird!!!! It seems that for some reason, the computer is not even recognizing the drive, check to see if the proper drivers are installed, otherwise I'm all out of ideas.

    right click my computer, select properties, go to hardware tab, and select device manager. THen see if there is a yellow (!) next to anything. If there is, go to this link:

    NOTE: make sure to see if your drive is on the discontinued list.

Copy all the files onto your 'C:' drive.
Spend $9 to buy a new 2GB USB memory-stick.
Copy the files to the new memory-stick.
Take a sledge-hammer to the old memory-stick -- to prevent anybody else from reading your files.

I have a kingston data traveler 2gb DTI. i was copying movie files to my data traveler and it removed the volume label and i am not able to change it back. now I am not able to access any files. it does...

Files on a flash drive can be corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon and then click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flash drive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive you need to format the flash drive, but you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: -

I am ignorant. Just bought a2gb data travelor that was completly

Hi lwebber,

The Data Traveler simply stores files. It has nothing to do with editing your Word document. Once you have saved your work on your computer (in the MyDocuments folder for instance) then you can copy the finished file to the Data Traveler. Right click on the file and click Copy then right click on the Data Traveler and click Paste. This process will copy a file to the Data Traveler.
