I have a transcend pendrive wen i insert it it shows drive has to be format but wen i m tryng to format its not formattingl08305


It is possible that the memory was damaged or is infected with a strong virus malware that does a block on detection to the PC. try the same on another PC which has a good protection and if this works there are faults on your port or the PC is infected.
If the drive is still not detected then the memory is faulty even after you try to format on any PC.

Have TRANSCEND D33193 4GB pendrive when i plugged it in my PC it is not detected , some one please help me.........


all pen drives are like jokers of a pack of cards....they behave very funny when you need them....
one of the most stupid inventions of the computer world....are these pen drives....
they are very much likely to carry virus from PC to PC....unlike the CD / DVD that cant be written without using a write program.....like Nero etc....CD/DVD disk are write protected by default....but the USB sticks can be used by drag and drop files.....so the virus get in without the user doing anything....
also when you thingk that you are buying a 4 GB pen drive, some times the dulicate are not exactly 4 GB...they are just 1 GB...and show 4GB as capacity...after using for some time they show their real face(1GB) and the drive becomes useless....
To tell you the fac many mfg are packing more and more space into a pen drive...like 32 GB, etc...but actually the physical capacilty is only 2 GB but expanded to 8 Gb / 12 / 16 GB using a compress program....after few uses....that becomes usless.....

Memory card cannot be formatted


VIRUS OR TROJAN INFECTIONS:

Virus or trojans can run some process that keeps running in background. This not only harms the computer, but also prevents the pen drive from formatting as it shows that the drive is in use. Remove and re-insert thepen drive, don't double click on drive and cancel autorun operations if it starts automatically. Run a virus scan on pen drive, this will help fix the issue. Now format the pen drive.




CORRUPTED FLASH CHIPS ON PEN DRIVE:

If the pen drive is not detected at all, or shows a less capacity, then there are high chances that its a chip corruption. Flash chips are the actual hardware components that save the data. A physical or electrical or electromagnetic damage to these chips make the pen drive faulty. This can happen because of voltage fluctuations and faulty USB ports. In such case, get the flash drive replaced if its under warranty as it can not be fixed otherwise.

FAKE PEN DRIVES:

Sounds a bit un-believable but true. There are a lot of pen drives in the market which are of very cheap quality which are fake copies of some known brands. Beware of such pen-drives. Always purchase pen-drives or memory-cards from a reliable source with bill and warranty to avoid any mess later.

Kingston 4gb not detected


Hi,
I dont think this problem is due to the pen drive. It may be more due to the system. Check the driver of the system. This may even happen if the system is affected by virus. So try if your pen drive is getting detected in other computers. If yes, then there may be virus infectiond in your pen drive. So run a virus scan and it may help.

Thanks.
