Question about Memory Cards & USB Flash Drives

1 Answer

USB Problems! Hi, I am currently having "issues" with my Huke 2.0GB flash drive. When I plug it into the computer i go into My Computer and open it but when I do it says that it is not "formatted" and would you like to format now? You click yes as its the only option and then it works fine and you can load your files on, BUT as soon as you plug it back in(even to the say pc) it starts with the whole formatting process again and you loose all your data!!! What the hell is going on? Thanks Sean

Check for the USB drive in Windows Explorer

Note: Connecting your USB external hard drive into a non-powered USB hub can cause a lack of enough power to operate the external drive. Instead, plug it directly into your computer.

Could not open my usb


Open my computer in windows - start/computer (vista). If there a removable device being shown. if you remove and reinsert does anything come up? If nothing comes up but it shows in Computer, right click on it and choose the format option (assuming you have not saved anything on it yet). If the usb can be read on another computer without issue, usb device is ok and usb port on your computer is at fault. test with another usb key or device you know works. if it does then your key may have an issue, or may be in a format your key does not understand. can be UDF or FAT.

How do I use this product to save photos off my computer?


Hi,

Moving files from your computer to the USB flash drive is simple. Plug in your flash drive. Go to "Computer" or "My Computer". You should now see your flash drive show up under a drive letter, like E: or F: for example. Double click this drive letter and a window should open up. Alternatively, when you plug in the flash drive you may get a message on your computer with an option "Open/View folders and files". You can click this to open the flash drive window.

Now, go to the location on your computer where the photos are located. You can use your mouse, click and hold , drag the mouse over files you wish to move. Now that the photos are highlighted, you can click, hold and drag them to the flash drive window. Alternatively, you can right click on pictures and choose the "copy" option. You can then right click inside of your flash drive window and chose "paste". Either of these options will move the photos from your computer to your flash drive.

Regards,

I was checking some of the files on my usb. When it became unresponsive I rebooted it. After doing so, my usb ports wouldn't recognize any usbs(camera, printer, etc.) I kept trying and I got them to work...


Hi. If your saying that you're USB is not being recognize by your computer then you should try that USB on a different machine and try if its working there, and if yes the problem is with your computer you just need to update the drivers on your computer to recognize your USB, and if not I think the USB has the hardware issue. Hope This Helps

My computer is not recognizing my external usb


Try to plug it in another hub, if your computer still doesn't recognize it, try plugging it in another computer and see if that computer recognizes it. If it does, then there might be something wrong with other computer. If it doesn't, then there might be driver issues with your USB.

My flash drive will not operate when plug into my lap top.


Hello kjh87....
1) If you are using a USB cable with your device, check the cable to make sure it matches the speed of the device. Use USB 2.0 cables with USB 2.0 devices and USB 1.1 cables with USB 1.1 devices. Swap cables and check the device, if this does not work, proceed to Step 2.
2) Next, open Device Manager and look under the heading for USB Serial Bus Controllers. If there is a device with a yellow exclamation mark next to it such as USB Mass Storage Device. Double-click on the entry and check the Device Status. If the status shows something like
"This device cannot start. (Code 10)"
proceed to Step 3.
3) The easiest way to solve a USB error code 10 in Windows XP
is to follow the steps below to remove and reinstall all USB controllers.
A. Click on Start
B. Right Click on My Computer, click on Properties
C.Click on the Hardware tab
D. Click the Device Manager button.
E. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers section.
F. Right-click every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers node, and then click Uninstall to remove them one at a time.
G. Restart the computer, and allow the computer to reinstall the USB controllers.
H. Plug in the removable USB storage device, and then test to make sure that the issue is resolved.

2gb usb 2.0 flash drive


I hope someone has helped you by now! After you plug your flash drive into your computer USB 2 port, your flash drive should appear in "my computer" as a drive. You can rename that drive by clicking once on the drive and then right clicking your mouse and selecting "rename" and name it Your USB or something that reminds you its the USB Drive.

Whether you rename it or not, all you have to do once your computer has recognized the USB drive is to open the folder where your documents are kept and either "move" or "copy" them to the USB drive. Remember that "moving" the files will remove them from your computer and transfer them to the USB drive. Copying the files will leave a copy on your computer as it copies the file to your USB drive. You can also right click the file with your mouse and move the pointer over "Send To" and choose your USB drive from the list and it will Copy the file to your USB drive.
