Kingston DT100 4GB slow to format under Vista

Posted by on

  • emondragon Jul 17, 2008

    I've tried quick formatting using Vista and it formats quickly but the same flash drive formats quickly using Windows XP using the full format option. With Vista it takes several minutes to full format. This is my second DT110 having the same problem. Thank you.

Very slow transfer to Kingston 8GB datatraveler


HI,

- Check if your PC is running at its maximum efficiency
- Close all side processes that are not of any use to you. This can be done by pressing :Ctrl+Shift+Esc and then going to processes. In there only close the processes that are under your user name and are of no use. NOTE: DON'T CLOSE "EXPLORER.EXE". This will free a sizeable amount of your RAM, making your PC generally faster.
- While copying anything, avoid multi-tasking as that will simply slow down your PC, causing a delay in the copying.
IF NONE OF THIS WORKS, then create a back-up of all the software in your Pen-Drive and then format it.
This should just about do it.
If still the problem persists, go to your dealer- your pen-drive must be in its warranty period.

I have a kingston 2 g flash drive. I put a large number of files from my Dell computer with Vista and the flash works fine on ANOTHER of my computers, a Toshiba Laptop. I put some files on my kingston...


this could be due to the format. i would try different formats on your usb. vista normally reads both but your format may be fat32 which is hit n miss. you can try UDF or FAT. I would format on a vista machine. insert, right click on the drive and select format. you may have to do both with a single file to test reads on both boxes. good luck.

How to upload pictures by my usb


That really is a matter of if when plugged in to the USB port of the computer you are using, if computer you are using can recognize the drive.

If you are using Windows XP, check "My Computer" and you should see the Kingston USB jump drive showing as an device icon.

In Vista and Windows 7 select "Computer" and you should also see the USB jump drive listed as a device icon.

If you are using a Mac OS X computer with your Kingston jump drive, providing the drive has been formatted with the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) format, or the MS-DOS format (which is readable on both Mac and PC platforms), it will show up
in the Finder sidebar and on your Desktop.

Either platform however, to load pictures onto your Kingston is easy, all you have to do is either copy the pictures from there respective folder or location and either right click on the Kingston 2GB HD icon and paste the pictures.

Or you can double click on the Kingston 2GB USB icon and paste or drag the pictures into the open window of the Kingston 2GB USB jump drive.

That is honestly as simple as it is.

Now, on the other hand, here are a few steps, if you want to upload to an online resource which allows photo uploads from another source, namely your computer..

When you use the upload feature of that website or webpage to upload your pictures to, no matter whether you are on a Mac or PC, you simply have to click that uploader's Browse or Upload button.

Next, simply locate the Kingston 2GB USB jump drive in My Computer, (Windows XP), Computer (Vista , Win 7) or Devices and/or Desktop (Mac OS X).

Then start selecting and uploading your pictures onto that website or webpage with your Kingston as the source drive.

Yes, I have given you a number of options, but hopefully you will see the ease of using any of these methods, again depending on what computer operating system you are using, how easy it is to upload photos from your Kingston (DTIU3/2GB) 2 GB USB Hard Drive.

Regards,

-Mactechtrainer
