Re: Copying

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.

I was given a Kingston and I do not know how to use. (I am 70 yr. old and this is my first dataTraveler.)

Just plug it into a USB slot and then it will automatically install/open. You can:

Drag and drop the files you want to copy into your data traveller. Or:

Right click the file you want to copy from your hard drive, choose copy. Go to your data traveler, right click and click paste.

Try it in some other computer. If it still has a problem, take it back to where you bought it, and exercise the warranty to get it replaced.

Hii sir pls help me mine kingstone data traveler 2gb is write protected so how shall i remove write protected?

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.

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.

Kingston USB 4GB

sounds like a bad hard disk or a malware virus interceptiong all data and corrupting it.
try free home version. if in health tab shows yellow. start looking for a hard disk
try in start, run (type) chkdsk /f black windows shows. press Y then enter reboot. see if it finds corruption. if its data not physical damage, it might fix it!

for virus malware issues i usualy head to for top 10 dloads and forum help.
