Hi,

I would venture that your pen drive has a problem with its File Allocation Table. Being a 256 leads me to think that it has been in service for quite some time. Perhaps a full format is necessary. May I recommend that you use HP Drive Key Boot Utility available here. Of course formatting would erase all and everything inside the pen drive.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

If i try to format my Kingston flash drive it will say insert driver and try again


Ok, do you have the driver for the flash? if you do I think you need to install it on your system.

You can also try scanning the drive with a strong anti virus like Avira anti-virus, because your drive might have been infected and maybe that's why it is malfunctioning.

Also try the flash on another system and see what happens, it might give you a clue on what the problem is.

Best wishes.

2gb kingston rs mmc write protected only 835 mb work


This seems to be the problem of most of us these days and some of our readers who wanted to know the methods how they can remove the Write Protected error from their USB drives like Pen Drives and memory cards.


What is Write Protected error and why it happens?
In the Write Protected error, we can’t write or copy any data in our flash drives and even can’t format the drive.
There are many reasons that cause this problem, let’s see solutions of them.
Solutions:
• First of all try to locate a small switch (if any, that you may have not noticed) at some place on the drive or memory card reader. This is the prime reason for this error. If there is one, switch it to the other side to turn the protection off.
• Yes I know this problem is also occurring these days without this switch but not to worry. Just download this helpful software form here

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Hard-Disk-Utils/HDD-Low-Level-Format-Tool.shtml

and run it to execute a “low-level format” on the drive. This software is quite handy and may take few attempts to actually remove the error.
• The problem can also be caused by some virus activity so just get it scanned by some updated good anti virus which may solve your problem.
• BUT if none of the methods listed above solves your problem then your pen drive might have gone corrupted, so just get it replaced.
Hope any of the methods listed above solves your problem.
Update 1:
After the low level format, you may need to “Partition the drive“. Dont worry, partitioning a pen drive means allocating it its File System and Cluster Size that was lost after the Low Level Format.
For that:
  1. Run diskmgmt.msc in Run.
  2. In the disk management window, select the pen drive, right click on it and click on Format.
  3. Now choose the File System and Allocation Unit Size and do not check the boxes below.


Click OK and the drive will be reusable after this.
Update 2 (Better Solution):
Follow the steps in this post and just put the value 0 (zero) in step 5.
This will surely solve your problem now.

Increase the Memory capacity


throw it away and buy a new one from a store. They are not very expensive compared to being "duped by a guy" or loosing data or files due to a bad device.

IF YOU PASSWORD PROTECT THE INFORMATION YOU WILL NEED THE PASSWORD TO ACCESS THE FILE UNLESS
THE FILES ARE CORRUPT THAN EVEN WITHA PASS WORD THE USB DEVICE WILL NOT ALOOW ACCESS TO THE INFORMATION THIS KEEP YOU FROM CORRUPTING THE HARD DRIVE OR WHAT EVERY DRIVE YOU WNAT TO COPY TO. JUST DELETE THE OLD ONE AND RECOPY THE FILES IF YOU CAN.

Flash disk data traveller kingston


18 MB from 2 GB...

i would recommend using a utility that performs a low level format of the flash drive... note that all data is lost on it. You may just have hidden files on it and your windows settings dont allow you to view hidden and system files...

let me know if you want to check for hidden files first or want a link to download a low level flash drive formatter....
