Question about Kingston (DTIU3/2GB) 2 GB USB Hard Drive

Can not fill up my 8 GB USB drive

Hello, I have an 8 GB data traveler USB drive. I plugged it into a USB port on my dell laptop which has Xp SP2 installed. It finds it fine, but I can not move two large files (Outlook PST files) over to the drive. The two files are a total of 5 GB, so I should have plenty of room. I get an error message though, drive does not have enough space. Is this an XP issue? I tried to reformat the drive. I tried to zip the files, which made the total 4 GB. Not sure what else to do?

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The error you quoted can be due to multiple reasons. Following are some main Possibilities, that you should keep in mind.

Make sure, the USB port, you are inserting data traveler in, is in working condition. And you are connecting the device properly.

Try checking the data traveler, on some USB port, on which you are sure, that its working properly.

Theoretically, you can't format a more than 32 GB drive with FAT/FAT32 file system. In your case you have to choose the NTFS file system to format your 64 GB USB flash drive. However, if you really need to format it with FAT32, you got to use the command line or a third party tool. Hope this is going to help you.

I have an Iomega GDHDU 2 external HD - 1TB. Just got it today, and when I plug it in it crashes XP (XP - SP2, 1.66GHz, 0.99 GB RAM, Del Inspiron Laptop 1420). I don't get the big blue screen, I get a...


Dell has stated in Dell knowledge base document FA1021802, that a USB device (such as a external hard drives, scanner, printer, etc) may not be detected or function correctly when connected to the USB port of a Dell Latitude or Inspiron PC (it may occur on other models as well).

Various communication errors may occur, including device initialization and device not found errors.
Some Dell computers do not provide enough voltage from the USB ports to power some USB devices.
Dell recommends purchasing a powered USB hub to provide the USB devices with enough power to operate correctly.

I think this explains it. Thank you and good luck!

Data traveler not recognize my computer


If you are using a USB Hub, try removing it and plug the drive directly into the USB port on the computer. I have a Dell laptop running Win 2k and sometimes have the same problem.

Won't recognize on windows XP(SP3)


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use asoftech data recovery program to recover your files.
