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)

When i am going to boot my pc through usb (window 7 ultimate) it show disk read error.....


I can think of three likely problems and one unlikely problem.
1. Did you really burn the ISO image to the pen drive? Did you use software such as freeisoburner: http://www.freeisoburner.com/to burn the ISO to the drive or did you just copy the ISO to the drive? If you just copied it, then the computer can't read the files
2. The USB drive may be broken. Have you tried burning the ISO to another flash drive or disk?
3. The copy of windows you downloaded wasn't the whole thing and there are missing files that once again, the computer can't read or find
4. Your USB ports on the computer is broken.

Tip

Copy files even with errors and many more


You might encounter something like "Access Denied", "The file has beentransferred to another location or deleted" or some other errors whilecopying your files.

This is a typical problem to those Windows XP users. So what they do isjust recopy all the files again but they will exclude the one with theerror.

What if you have virus that you are in random folders that can't be moved/copied?
What if your old files that you don't need have random access denied files?
What if and what if?

How to continue copying files and exclude the files with error?
Here's how you do it.

What is xcopy?
Copies files and directory trees.
How to use xcopy?

XCOPY source [destination] [/A | /M] [/D[:date]] [/P] [/S [/E]] [/V] [/W]
[/C] [/I] [/Q] [/F] [/L] [/G] [/H] [/R] [/T] [/U]
[/K] [/N] [/O] [/X] [/Y] [/-Y] [/Z] [/B]
[/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...]

See the REFERENCE below for the detailed meaning

Step 1.
Click Start then click Run...(Or Simply Press Windows key+R)

Step 2.
type "xcopy [source] [destination]"

Sample 1: (For single File ONLY)
xcopy C:/Windows/System32/userint.exe E:/Backup

Sample 2: (For folder including their sub folders)
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /S
or
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /E

Sample 3: (For Continue Copying even Error Occurs)
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /S /C

Sample 4: (For allowing copying encrypted files)
xcopy C:/Windows E:/BackupWIndows /S /G

Note: You can combine the rules/options that you like.

That's it! you now have a way to copy files that are protected, accessdenied, or even those that are encrypted. Hope This tip helps you. ^^

REFERENCE:

What are the use of the options?

source Specifies the file(s) to copy.

destination Specifies the location and/or name of new files.

/A Copies only files with the archive attribute set,
doesn't change the attribute.

/M Copies only files with the archive attribute set,
turns off the archive attribute.

/D:m-d-y Copies files changed on or after the specified date.
If no date is given, copies only those files whose
source time is newer than the destination time.

/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...
Specifies a list of files containing strings. Each string
should be in a separate line in the files. When any of the
strings match any part of the absolute path of the file to be
copied, that file will be excluded from being copied. For
example, specifying a string like obj or .obj will exclude
all files underneath the directory obj or all files with the
.obj extension respectively.

/P Prompts you before creating each destination file.

/S Copies directories and subdirectories except empty ones.

/E Copies directories and subdirectories, including empty ones.
Same as /S /E. May be used to modify /T.

/V Verifies the size of each new file.

/W Prompts you to press a key before copying.

/C Continues copying even if errors occur.

/I If destination does not exist and copying more than one file,
assumes that destination must be a directory.

/Q Does not display file names while copying.

/F Displays full source and destination file names while copying.

/L Displays files that would be copied.

/G Allows the copying of encrypted files to destination that does
not support encryption.

/H Copies hidden and system files also.

/R Overwrites read-only files.

/T Creates directory structure, but does not copy files. Does not
include empty directories or subdirectories. /T /E includes
empty directories and subdirectories.

/U Copies only files that already exist in destination.

/K Copies attributes. Normal Xcopy will reset read-only attributes.

/N Copies using the generated short names.

/O Copies file ownership and ACL information.

/X Copies file audit settings (implies /O).

/Y Suppresses prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
existing destination file.

/-Y Causes prompting to confirm you want to overwrite an
existing destination file.

/Z Copies networked files in restartable mode.

/B Copies the Symbolic Link itself versus the target of the link.

/J Copies using unbuffered I/O. Recommended for very large files.

The switch /Y may be preset in the COPYCMD environment variable.
This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line.

Remove the hard disk and attach it to an USB hard drive adapter and then connect it into the USB port of a working computer. This computer will detect the hard drive as an external storage device, then you can open the various folders and files to copy your files to this computer or burn your data to a CD/DVD disc or USB flash drive.
Return you hard disk back to your Packard Bell so you can reinstall Windows.

When i trying to copy anything to my 2 gb memory card it says "cannot copy file data error cyclic redundancy check"


Try to format the usb device by right clicking on the drive and then selecting format option. Try to copy your data after formating is finished and the device is ready to use.
The solution is with the assumption that you are using a Windows Machine.

Try to check your cd-rw or cd-r that are new and did not use anymore or maybe it was damage. And maybe the files that you copied are exceed the capacity of the cd-r or cd-rw so that they could not write the files. If your using the Nero Burning ROM you just see the capacity of your cd-r or cd-rw before you going to write it to the cd. Just make sure that the files you want to copy are not exceed the capacity of the cd.

Can't copy files to drive. Says disk is full and it is not.


what filing systems do the passport drives use and how large are each of the files ?

If they are fat 32 and the files are each larger then 4gb then that is why it will not work as fat32 does not support or allow more then 4gb per file due to the filing system so you would need to format it as NTFS if you want to store files larger then 4 gigs

Error message


I had the same problem with a USB drive and a SD card. Both were only recieving 170 files to the root folder before I got this error. The solution was to reformat each using using 'FAT32' as the file system. This basically is a more modern file system that allows more files and cam about after win95. It looks like some USB drives and SD card are origninally formted with basic 'FAT'.

To reformat right click on the drive in windows explorer and select 'Format...'.

Another option if you dont need all the files in the root flder is to create a subfolder however this was not an option for me as my digital photo frame would not handle this.

Do you have any data on the drive right now? the file system on the drive might be messed up... if you have no data, i suggest you perform a format. if not try to copy the data over to your hard drive then format it.
