Flash Drive Accidentally ejected during transfer.

I have a Dane-Elec 2 GB Flash Drive problem. I'm on a Mac.

The drive was accidentally ejected during a transfer, and now has 2 files (exec) that will not delete. When I try to add those files again, it asks me if I want to replace the existing file (says 0 kb) but it will not actually replace. So, I can't add these files again without getting rid of these exec files first.

Suggestions?
Thanks!

Windows asking me to format my flash drive


Just format your flash drive! Before you start formatting your flash drive, transfer all data from your flash drive 'cause when you format your flash drive, it will erase all the data. After you have formatted the flash drive, then you can transfer back the data to your flash drive.

You may have the drive formatted in a way that the Mac cannot read. If you go to your "My Computer" in XP, find your drive, right click on it, look for something that says either NTFS or FAT32. If it's NTFS, the Mac won't read it.

You can copy files off the drive and then reformat it, also with a right-click in that My Computer menu. Format to FAT32. FAT32's major limitation will be no files over 2gb each.

There is free software out there that will -try- to read and write NTFS drives. It worked for me, but killed my brother-in-law's Mac.

Hi, i have a dane-elec flash disk 8GB i can read and copy from it, but i can't write or delete or format it, please help thank you


Check to see if the flash disk has a switch located anywhere on the body. Some flash disks have this switch which is to write protect the flash disk from accidental erasure of its contents.

Is the D drive a CD or a partion on the C. If the D is a CD then you must burn the files to the D. If D is a partition on the hard drive just copy from C by right clicking on the file to copy and then right click on D and paste. The file will be copied to D.

I don't you can solve this at home. You need expert that have hardware and software to retreive your data for you.

The reason you get this message is because your flash drive lost the header to tell the computer how to retreive your info.

Can't switch DVD drive


Is there a screw in the bottom of the PC, holding the drive eject button in? Sometimes these will be screwed in to prevent switching them by users, or accidentally, or something.
