OLIN USB 2.0 2GB Memory Stick

Hi, I recently bought this new 2GB USBFLASH Drive for my computer, but when i stick it in it just tells me that I need to download software. But there isnt any software I can find for it, and the company I bought it off, says it should just work without installing any software. I put it into my work computer and it didnt do anything, even ask for software. My system is VISTA Basic, my work system is XP. When I put it into my friend scomputer who also runs XP, it worked. Came up strait away as an external drive. Do I need tol format it or something, Please Help !

If the drive has u3 on it, you need to run the u3 removal tool to remove out the non compatible U3 software from the drive so that it won't pop up on vista.

If your drive doesn't have u3 on it, you could have a driver issue on your vista machine.

I have bought a new 7'' laptop notebook.how do i know which memory stick to get?


If you mean a USB memory stick then get the one that you can afford. I would suggest that you look for a USB 2.0 stick, Corsair, Kingston and TDK all make reliable and cheap sticks. (BUT if you mean a RAM stick then you need to get one the same as the one already in your netbook. If you take it to a computer shop they will tell you the correct ram for your computer.)

Memory stick in laptop then would not access my files. Light on. Took memory stick out and in - no light no recognition.


The flash drive may be damaged if it was dropped recently etc. Try a different USB port on the computer most computers have more than one.

I have bought a new memory stick, I've never used one before and dont know how to use it to store and carry information correctly?


Just take a look at the back panel of your computer.
You would find 2 or more USB slots which are meant for your memory stick (we call it USB pen-drive as well).

Insert this memory stick into one of these slots. (Align the plastic side properly and it ll fit in easily).
Normally there is an LED light on the stick that glows when you connect it to the computer.

Now click on Start - (My) Computer
Or just press Windows+E

Alongwith the hard-drive & DVD-drive, you would find the Memory Stick icon there (manufacturer's name like Kingston, SanDisk etc would appear).
Double click on it to open and see whats stored inside (right now it would be blank as u v not stored anything in it)

Now you want to store something, say, a song in it,

Very simple. Just open the Music folder. Right click on your song. Click on Send To, and then click on the memory stick (removable media) name.

You can alternatively copy the song (right click on the song, click on copy), go to the memory stick drive (open My Computer, double click on stick icon), and paste the song there (again right click, click on paste).

Once the file is copied, disconnect the stick from computer.
Now your data is ready to travel with you.

When I plug in my Lexar memory stick, and try to save a file to the removable drive (J) which is the memory stick file...it says I can't because it doesn't exist. Help?


Hi, Neil.

Look in "My Computer" to see if another drive letter was created when your memory stick was plugged in. Sometimes, another drive letter is created. Try dragging and dropping the file you want to save.

In case you are not aware, in each computer, the drive letter for a memory stick could be different, depending how a computer is set up.

Also, try in another computer to see how your memory stick works (if it's OK).

Hope this helps.

Can you help me!! because my memory stick 8GB have been not read from my psp and computer i don't now it wast corrupt or not because when i was put into the memory card ready my computer have been log...


Hi,

I recently had the same exact problem with a Kingston SD card of mine. Unfortunately, this usually means that the flash memory is no good any more. This means the data is totally unreadable on the drive now, and you will need to replace the drive.

The good news is that manufacturers tend to offer very long warranties on flash memory devices. I looked up on the Sony support site, and they offer a warranty of five to ten years, which you would fall into. I would call Sony support and start the replacement process. You won't get the files back, but at least you won't need to replace it.

Problem with USB Flash


It is possible the memory stick is faulty. Are you using xp or vista? If so it should be recognised instantly. I bought one the same a couple of weeks ago, and it recognised it instantly, and I'm using xp.

Try it on another computer if possible, even where you purchased it. Just tell them you think it's faulty. If it works on that computer then you have a problem with either your usb ports or you have a virus.

When you download to the computer, what program do you open with? Try not using the auto-open feature, and open direct from new device in "my computer".
