Question about Toshiba 1GB USB 2.0 High-Speed Flash Drive 1 GB USB Portable (PA1399U1MEMFT) Drive

1 Answer

Usb memory stick

Hi,
I am trying to transfer data from a very old computer using the Toshiba 1GB USB 2.0 flash drive and the old computer doesn't have the driver software to run it. What do I do? Can I download a driver from the net? Could you please help?

    I have an old computer too, Win Me and I can't get my Toshiba usb 2.0 flash drive to work either although it says it works for Me on the package.

    Exact same problem except the 4-Gig model. I am running 98SE on the old machine, a Compaq, need to transfer important files. Stick runs perfectly on the new computer, an e-machine with XP on it. But on the Compaq, it first told me it needed a driver, then said the one I downloaded was insufficient. Toshiba has a site promising the correct one [Yahoo search "Toshiba 98SE flash drive driver"], but the site does not deliver. Call Toshiba and they'll tell you 98SE is no longer supported, even though the stick is said to be 98SE compatible. Apparently no help there.



    If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know [geometry@infionline.net].

If the old computer is running XP.. then patch it up with service pack 2 and then transfer the files!
Most often service pack does the job.. Also the transfer is fast with the SP2 installed

Your computer may be reserving space on the drive and using it to speed up your memory of your computer. Some have default settings that automatically do this. Try reformating the portable drive to erase the contents and settings and see if this recovers your available space.

Just plug the flash drive in and let your computer recognize it and offer to open the flash drive file up to view. Once it is loaded up then you can simply drag and drop into it. If this is the first time using the flash drive it may need to load some software. When a flash drive is being used a small icon should appear on the lower right.

HOW DO YOU USE A USB STICK


There are various types of USB sticks or adapters. The most common is an USB memory stick and they come in memory capacities from 256Mb to 32Gb or more.
The USB memory sticks are use to transfer data from a computer to a memory stick and vice versa (ie. copy data from one computer to another computer).
To copy data to and from a USB memory stick, all you have to do is to plug the memory stick into the USB port of a computer, the computer will recognize it as an external memory device.
Wait a few seconds and click to open the memory stick, just like openning a folder on your hard disk. You can then open the hard disk and copy data files from the hard disk to the memory stick in the same way if you were copying data to a floppy disk.

Usb stick not usable


Because its beyond 4Gb that's why its already detected as a disk drive.

You can still save your files here. Have you already tried?

If so, what is the exact error you are getting?

ITunes download


The memory stick wouldn't change the ability to download with iTunes. You'd want to make sure you don't have a firewall blocking your iTunes internet access.
