Question about Iomega Prestige 1 TB USB 20 Hard Drive

1 Answer

I dragged some files into my 8GB Kingston usb, which was originally working fine. After 6 minutes, it finished and I safely removed it from the laptop, but when I put it back in, it came up with "you need to format the disk drive before you can use it". I didn't do anything but drag some files. I don't know what I did wrong. =[ Can someone please help?

Kingston 8gb pen has malfuntioned


Files on a flash drive canbe corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon andthen click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flashdrive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive to working order you need to format the flash drive,BUT you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: -

I need clear instructions on how to transfer data from Windows XP laptop to Windows 7 desktop by Kingston DT1/2GB


I assume the USB pen is formatted and empty.
Place the Pen in a free USB on your laptop and with Explorer select the file/s you want to copy. Highlight the file names and with "My Computer" open drag the files onto the Pen.
When you have finished, remove the Pen and place it in the Win7 desktop.
Open Explorer on your Desktop and select the files in the Pen. Right hand mouse click on them using the move command and place them on your desktop.
When you have finished you can then make folders to move them into on your Win7 Desktop.
Hope this explains it for you.

Please can you send me detailed instructions on how to use a kingston usb memory stick


The memory stick becomes another drive, when plugged into the USB port. Some sticks have a write protect, which is a teeny tiny switch. If the switch is in the protect position, you can read but not write any data to the drive. Often the drive will be listed after all of your camera card ports.
To view the drive press and hold the Windows key and press the letter E. and then release both. The available drives should show up there.

Move data from one computer to another with kingston 8gb data tra


When you plug in the Flash Drive to your old computer, it will show up in My Computer probably as Removable disk or "Kingston Data Travler". You want to open that link up and drag whatever files you need into that folder. After doing so you put the flash drive in your new computer and repeat the process except you drag the files out of the folder and onto your desktop or a folder of your liking.
