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.

Old program won't run on new computer win XP but runs on others

Probably, having more RAM would make VMWARE run faster.

Check the manufacturer's web-site -- surely, they have a version which *DOES* work as a "native" application under Windows XP and Windows VIsta and Windows 7, i.e., no need for "compatibility settings".

Hi, can someone pleae help me in formating my desk top. it is showing very slow performance. so i want to perform. what are the precautions that i should take before formating. what are there requirements...


Before you format the drive,

Are you using Norton if so dump it, but make sure that it is totally uninstalled by going into search and typing in Norton (Delete any remaining files showing Norton that come up)
Unplug the internet connectoion first

Then run Disc Cleanup then Defragmenter.
Go to Programs ,Accessories, System tools etc

Restore the internet

Go to www.filehippo.com and download Avast Anti Virus and Spy Bot , install updates and run them both.

If your machine is not running a lot quicker then go to www.belarc.com and download their Advisor program run that and it will give you a profile of your pc telling you what Ram is installed

For a reasonable performance under XP you need 2GB Vista take around 4GB

For a online check co to www.crucial.com and run their memory checker , it will tell you what memory is fitted and what upgrades are available

These are actually ccore flash drives, shipped with the name "Kingston". YOU CAN FORMAT ANY ZIP DRIVE WITH "HP USB DISK STORAGE FORMAT TOOL". Trust me, it really does the needful. I had the same problem earlier =)

Kingston USB key Data Traveler 8GB doesn't work well when more than 512 MB are copied in it. Same problem with different computers (with Windows XP SP2 or SP3). Same problem when formatted with FAT32 or...


If you have not tried this already, go to control panel, click on administrative tools, then double click computer management. In the left pane under computer management, click on disk management.
Make sure your Kingston data disk is plugged in to your usb port. In the right pane you should see your flash disk represented by a white bar with blue line on top. Right-click on the white bar and select "delete partition" Once the partition is deleted, right-click the bar once again and select create partition. Once you have created this partition, you should have the use of the maximum capacity of the flash drive.

Hard Drive Failing?


It may be a virus or spyware. You can go HERE and run Trend Micro's Housecall on your PC. It's free.

You should also perform regular system cleanups and defrags on your pc.

Slow laptop


I think you are out of luck with this. You can try upgrading the RAM, but I believe you will still be disappointed. Vista requires a huge amount of hardware resources and many drivers are not available yet.

Install Windows XP or try one of the Linux distributions. I prefer Fedora Core myself, but for many, Ubuntu is an excellent choice.

Slow HD performance


Hi, with that system you should realy fly. Could it be that you are running VISTA? This O/S is appears to be a lot slower than the trusty old XP. Regards mistyman
