    i have this exact problem. Heres what was left out i think... CPU already recognizes the Memory Stick. It just won't let any files get transfered on to it. Error Message reads:
    Cannot copy (file name) : cannot find specified file.
    Make sure you specify correct path and file name.

Windows XP will by default try to use Windows Media Player 10 or later to transfer media files to removable storage devices. In order to enable DRM (Digital Rights Management), the portable device is treated as a media player, and WMP tries to use MTP to transfer files. The MTP device is not treated as a mountable drive, but an extension for WMP. The storage device itself has to be able to implement this protocol, and must have it enabled, for it then manages its own file system.
That being said, other USB devices will implement either Pictbridge or PTP or USB MSC protocols, or even possibly another unnamed proprietary protocol. The Kingston Data Traveler will most certainly fall under the USB MSC category and should mount automatically, using Windows XP, as a portable drive.

Assuming administrator priveledges:

So, using the Windows Explorer (file explorer) and plugging the device into a USB 2.0 port, you should get a "ding" of some sort.
Check under "My Computer" for a new drive and letter that may say "Data Traveler" or something of the sort. If no "ding", the OS may not recognize the device at all. Check your USB devices under safely remove hardware.
If you see the device, but no drive letter, you can try to assign one by doing the following: Right Click "My Computer" and select "Manage". Select "Disk Management" look for a disk that says "Removable" and Right Click it. Select "Assign" or "Change" "Drive Letter and Paths" and give it a letter. It should then be mounted as a removable drive.

Cannot transfer files in to sony 4gb pen drive


try a different usb slot ..if that doesnt works then it sounds like your pen drive is damaged .. that can happen in several ways .. if you carry it around with you, make sure the cap is on ... it can get static zapped otherwise .. also the gold fingers inside can get dirty .. another way the drives are damaged is to remove them while data is still being written to the drive ... wait until the light is no longer flashing before removing .. if you are using win98 or winMe .. then make sure you turn off the device before removing ..

Try reformatting the Kingston flash drive and copying the files over again. Make sure that none of the MP3 files in question are actually in use (e.g. playing in the background or being accessed by some other application)

How is transfering Data and information from my computer into 1GB USB2.0(Data Traveler) done?. How do I start and how do I connect the USB2.0 on my computer to begin the transfering?. I am asking this...


FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT FLASH DRIVES

USB (Universal Serial Bus) flash drives are high-speed, high-capacity memory devices designed for long-term data storage and easy transport among PCs. The host PC treats the device just like a drive, so you can transfer files of all types to and from the device. Because the device emulates a drive, it supports any type of file, including audio files (such as MP3s) and graphics files (such as JPEGs [Joint Photographic Experts Group] and BMPs [bit map]). In addition, USB flash drives can easily support applications, CAD (computer-aided design) drawings, and a wealth of personal information you'd rather not leave on any particular PC. Even so, most USB flash drives are smaller than a pack of gum and can easily fit onto a key ring.

Years ago, users often referred to the practice of using floppies to transport files among PCs as sneakernet. Because USB flash drive manufacturers designed these devices for transport among PCs, their increasing popularity has given rise to a "new sneakernet."
