I have kingston 16 GB data traveler 101 it cannot be formatted what do i do ????


This could be due to virus problems on your PC. Try formatting it on other PCs. Else your data traveler might have been damaged due to dropping, rough usage etc which is less likely. Try formatting it on a linux PC as well.

Unit downloaded fine ad the did the back up of the drive fine.started the updates and the firmware stopped and then the drive locked up how to access the drive again after reboot nothing shows G: F:


  1. To restore the Western Digital icon to the drive letter for the external drive in "My Computer".
  2. Please go to the Western Digital Download Library and download the WD Logo Icon which has a file name of External Icon.zip when you download it.
  3. Save the file to your desktop and use a file compression software like Winzip to extract the files inside the .zip file to your desktop. When it's unzipped, it will create a folder named "ExternalIcon" on your desktop.
  4. Double-click on the ExternalIcon folder. It will open a Windows Explorer showing a folder named, Autorun, and a file named, Autorun.inf.Double-click on My Computer and it will open.
  5. Double-click on the driver letter that represents the Western Digital drive you want the icon on and it will open.
  6. Highlight the Autorun folder and the Autorun.inf file. Right-click on them, and left-click on Cut when the Menu appears.
  7. Right-click in the open space of the drive that you opened in the new Explorer window, and then left-click on Paste.
  8. Close both Explorer windows, safely remove the external hard drive by using the Safely Remove icon in the system tray, shut down the computer, and unplug the external drive from the computer.
  9. After you reboot into Windows, reconnect the external drive to the computer again, and the Western Digital Icon should now be displayed with the drive letter in My Computer.

If these steps do not correct the problem, you will need to re-format your External Hard Drive ***WARNING*** FORMATTING A HARD DRIVE WILL ERASE, YOU WILL LOSE, ALL DATA

Access is denied


Hi
Possible reason is
that your pendrive Contains
An autorun.inf file pointing to a *.exe file(possiblly a virus)

So either you run a scan with good antivirus
or
You can delete the file manually by


> Goto>> Run>>Type the drive letter of your pendrive and follow a full colon(Eg: "C:")
then just enter
now if you cant see the autorun.inf file
you go to folder options to change the view
that is (go to tab view )

1. tick "show hidden files and folders "
2. Untick " Hide operating system files"
Apply it

now you will see the autorun.inf file just delete it

It will solve your problem

My Mac will not store data on my wd external hard-drive


Take it back to where you bought it, and get a replacement,
or at least get them to demonstrate that it _does_ work, when connected to a Mac computer (not a Windows computer).

I use a cruzer 4GB to go between my Mac & my work PC. Now, on windows, it says I have a possible worm virus. When connected to my Mac - there is no virus. Something to do with something called...


I believe that Windows is having an issue with the information in the autorun.inf file.

The entire sequence is initiated when the "disk change notifcation" polling discovers a new disk in the CD or DVD ROM drive. Then, if the "Auto insert notification" feature is enabled (it is by default), Windows checks in the new disk's root directory for the existence of an "autorun.inf" file. If found, Windows then reads and follows the specific instructions this file defines. If no autorun.inf file is found, then Windows refers to the new disk by its serial number and executes the default actions associated with the (data or audio) content on the disk.

My suggestion would be to delete the autorun.inf file as it is not needed.

My Book (G:) icon is different


Hi,
no you there iss no big problem.
The icon of your hdd iss created from the autorun.inf

http://www.fiveanddime.net/notes/hd-icons.html

Change hard drive icons Change hard drive icons:

To change the icon for your hard drive, create the
following file in notepad:


[autorun]
icon=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\Pifmgr.dll,36

Notice it's two lines.
If your hard drive is C:
click Save As... and navigate to C:
and save it as autorun.inf
enclose it in quotes so Notepad won't put a .txt
on the end of it
The path specified is the typical Windows path
yours may vary, but you'll have that dll file.
The 36 at the end is the number of the icon I chose.
(Icons in a file are numbered, starting at 0.)
To see the change, open Windows Explorer; click
F5 if needed to refresh.
To preview your icon options, select an icon on
your desktop, right-click and select
Properties, then Change Icon. You can also select
any other .dll file in your computer, although most
won't have icons.
The common Windows icons are in
C:\Windows\System\shell32.dll
(xp = C:\Windows\System32\shell32.dll)
You can also point to a single icon.
Using the example above:


[autorun]
icon=c:\windows\cursors\myicon.ico

I have three hard drives and nine partitions; under
WinMe, I had to move the icon/dll to each
partition and edit the autorun.ini, i.e.
C:\Windows\System\Pifmgr.dll,32 became Pifmgr.dll,32.
WinMe also wouldn't let me change the icons
for the primary partitions of the first two
drives, but did let me change the
primary partition icon of the third drive.

Unable to open Pendrive


Your pen drive is infected by a virus/worm. I have two solutions for this -   > If you have WinRAR software, just open up the pen drive using this and delete "autorun.inf" from it.  OR  > Use any good antivirus software and scan your pen drive, and disinfect the pen drive from any virus/worms. Remove your pen drive, and insert it again. It'll work fine.

ABOUT MY 2GB PEN DRIVE WARRANTY


Here's what you should do. actually I prefer using DOS to do this. ok, so fire up the DOS and goto C:
this virus actually put two files on each partition that It will infect, autorun.inf and the .vbs file which contains the code of the virus. currently the attributes of these two files are hidden, read-only and system. so using attrib command, type:
attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf
attrib -h -r -s m*.vbs
del m*.vbs
del auto*.inf

also look for the windows folder and look for the other .vbs file of the virus and change its attribute.

not yet done.

activate your task manager(ctrl-alt-del) and look for wscript.exe, you should end this task.

take not you must do this in every partition or flashdisk that have been infected. Take note you should also check the registry since this virus append it's .vbs to the [Run] field of the registry and also it alters the Title of your Internet Explorer to Hacked by Godzilla.

after your done, you need to reboot your system.
