    Maybe you don't have a genuine Kingston flash drive.

I had a similar problem with one of my usb pen drives about a year ago. The USB drive acted like it was a CD-ROM drive. It turned out that the drive had become defective and and sandisk (i think it was sandisk) replaced it since it was still under warranty. You might try contacting the manufacturer.

Hi,
Most probably this may be a loose connection problem... and ur drive has a autorun program...

Situation may be like this...1. ur drive is recognised..2. Autorun starts...3. Drive disengages :))...4. OS asks u -->WHERE IS MY DRIVE???<--

Try using some other USB ports...and in some other PCs also...Try to have a thorough scan with good antivirus (Who knows.. may be some virus is running as autorun!)

Try connecting the device in all possible insertion levels


Bye

Have a nice day.

I hope ... this solves ur problem. :)

What is the password for the new kingston USB DT109?


It is true that locking mobile storage devices, such as USB drives, with Imation Lock is an excellent way to protect your data.


However, using Imation Lock with a Kingston USB drive can create problems.

Learn how to unlock your Kingston USB drive so you can use it once again.


Ensure that your Kingston USB drive has been removed from your computer's USB port.

Start the Imation Lock software by double clicking the Imation Lock.


Plug in the Kingston USB into a USB port immediately after the "Please Insert the Device or Run This Utility as Privileged User" message appears.


Access your Kingston USB drive by clicking Start > Computer.

Double click on the device.


Start the Imation Lock software again by double clicking the Imation Lock.

Disable the password protection by clicking the open lock icon.


or


If you have password protected a USB drive or partition on your computer and have since forgotten the password, you will need to completely erase the drive.


Erasing and reformatting the drive will remove any password protection, software and data on the drive preventing you from accessing the drive.


The process is simple using Window's Disk Management utility.


Log into the computer as the administrator.


Open the Windows Start menu, select "Run," type "Compmgmt.msc" and click "OK." In Windows Vista and Windows 7, simply type the command into the "Search" field.


Select "Disk Management."


Locate the password-protected drive.

Right-click it and select "Delete." Confirm the action.


The drive will be erased and become unallocated free space.


Hope this helps.

I have kingston datatraveler 8GB , it reads on my pc 0 byts, Thank you.....


pen drives are very fragile HWs and bound to behave funny sometimes...if u have critical data in them u ....it may be lost for ever sometimes.....
only a low level format or a windows simple format can revive it back....even i as an expert have faced issues with my 8 GB kingston pen drive many times...so i have moved to using 4.7GB DVD RW disk media (DVD RW disk costs just a few $)....and they r re-usable/erasable/re-writable....and most of the PCs have a DVD drive now a days.....it also is resistance to any virus being writen on them from another infected system....but a pen drive can get infected with a virus, by just connecting it to the USB port....

Installing Kingston 8 GB pen drive


It does not appear that kingston has released any support for its pen drives for windows 98. I would highly suggest upgrading your operating system. You may still be able to contact kingston, they may have a fix but it seems fairly unlikely.

I can't use my pen drive in windows 98


Please see thw following for using usb drives, ipods, etc. in Windows 98.

http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/kb/usbmsd98.php


You can try to find vendor-specific drivers for each and every pen drive you use, but this is the mass storage driver so it will be one driver for all of them just like Windows xp.
