My password protected scandisc cruzer usb stick is refusing to accept the correct password-any solution


Unfortunately, you can NOT access your user data and applications on the device without a password.

If you think you are entering the correct password, ensure that CAPS lock or NUM lock is not turned on. You should try to type your password in another application (like word or email) to ensure that it is being entered correctly. This can help you see if CAPS lock, NUM lock, or a sticky key is causing the password to actually be entered incorrectly.

Password attempts
There's a set number of attempts before U3 locks your device and you have to reformat it.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.

Password hint
If you set a hint when you enabled the password protection, click Hint in the log in window to display the hint you entered. If you did not set a hint or still can not remember your password you will have to reformat the drive.
Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.

It is recommended to keep a backup of all the data on your U3 device on your PC for safe keeping.

I tried deleting everything from my memory stick becaues there is not enough space for my file, but after deleting it, I still dont have enough space, it keeps saying the avaliable space is 270MB even tho...


Try to format the drive from your computer, instead of just erasing it. Also, memory cards do go bad too.....some times quite easily.

The good news is they are VERY inexpensive now of days if you do need to replace it.

Write protected memory stick


1.Look for a switch or button on the side of the micro SD card or adapter. It might have a lock/unlock symbol on it. 2.Move the switch to the "Unlocked" position to remove write protection. This position may also be labeled "R/W" for read/write. If you have no switch, continue to Step 3. 3.Download and install Sony EzRecover and attempt to use it to format the card (this will erase all content). If this doesn't work, try Step 4. 4.Delete and repartition the micro SD card using Windows XP. Select "Control Panel" > "Administrative Tools" > "Disk Management." Select the micro SD drive and click "Delete." Right-click on empty drive and select "New Partition."

Using my 2GB memory stick for pictures and something is taking up about 1.5 gb of space that i ant find and delete barely any picture space left. Help?


Copy your picture off and use the camera or your pc to reformat the card. That will restore full space to the card.
Fastest easiest way to do it.

I'm assuming you were able to see all of the space previously. If not then it could be the wrong format type or incompatable size or type of card.

My memory stick is write protected...i cant add/delete files.


CHECK if it is not physically protected, a small button/switch might be on the stick!
THEN, try any other flash drive or memmory stick to locate the target problem (memorry stick, or usb port mulfunction or even security/driver issue).

PLUS, there are some programes that might protect flash drives, check if u have any, and uninstall them, and make sure u have deleted ther HIDDEN system files located on the stick!

gd luck.

Memory sticks empty and shows no memory available


i have a solution that worked! Notice: save all the needed data on your computer, because Formatting your Memory stick will wipe everything out!
if you have a Sony PSP, or know someone who does, replace the memory stick that says "no memory Space" in to the PSP port, go to "Settings" which is the left-most section of the PSP main screen, then scroll down to "System Settings," select it, Scroll down again to the "Format Memory Stick" selection and press "X" follow on-screen instructions and  SHAZAM!  its ready for action in your camera again!
