Hello,

It sounds like the read only switch on. According to the bottom picture at http://www.transcendusa.com/products/ShowImg.asp?ModNo=131 there is what looks like a switch that you can slide back and forth. Just move it to the opposite position that its in now and that should help,

Thanks

How to test performance of Flash Drive


Check Flashis a freebie program that helps user to test and format flash drives with the utmost ease. It is designed for maintenance operations as well. The interface is a simple with a single window available, which provides all the test-related settings while presenting the drive map, log and verification progress. The application is capable of running both read and write tests in order to determine the speed performance of the device and its health.
cheeckflash
Check Flash presents the settings in the right part of the screen in four different sections covering Access type, Action type, Test length and Test results. Of course, there is a section that lets you choose the flash drive to be evaluated and which features a refresh button, thus allowing adding multiple removable drives without having to restart the program.
The way the read/write tests are performed and the list of options available for the operation are set according to the way you provide access to the flash drive. You can choose between using a temporary file, access it as a logical drive or as physical device. The differences between these three types of drive access consist in the safety level of the procedure and the number of options enabled.
Using a temporary file for the test gives you a minimum of features but, on the other hand, it is totally safe for the evaluated device. Treating the flash as a logical drive will give Flash Check access on partition level and is the second safest alternative to use; plus more options will become available under the “Action type” section.
The most unsafe method to test the removable storage device is to treat it as a physical device during the evaluation. This method is not recommended as it is unsafe for all the partitions present on the selected device but, on the other hand, you benefit from the full set of features in the software.
In “Action type” you get to choose between six procedures to test the removable device, all of which being available depending on the access type specified. The list of options includes read stability test (reads all data a few times and verifies the CRC given on first pass), low-level initialization (available only if you treat the flash as a physical device), which lets you edit the partition information of the selected device, save image (saves full binary image of the chosen partition or device), load image (writes a previously saved binary image) and full erase (effaces all of the drive’s surface).
For 50% of the presented actions several tests can be performed, continuously or until you decide to stop the assessment. All options in the “Test length” section are pretty clear, but “Burn it!” is the one that is not self-explanatory. It actually sets a loop in the testing that requires your intervention to stop.
In the lower part of the screen the test results are displayed: number of completed cycles, error found, read and write speed. Also, there is a progress bar to give you a hint on the completion of the operation. Unfortunately, the application cannot estimate the finish time. Left hand side of the application window shows the drive map, log and legend.
Check Flash 1.08 supplies a fat set of features to test your flash disk and see exactly how fast it can read and write data. It is portable and flexible enough to let you choose from three different drive access methods as well as select between six tests to be performed and how many times to repeat them. It is a very handy instrument that can help you detect the fake flash memory drives.

I would like to restore my dell optiplex 740 to its factory settings.


you can purchase a system recovery disc from dell by providing your dell service tage number to a dell support agent. the cost of the disc will be less than 20.00 billable to you credit or debit card. be sure to save all your important documents and pics as this will format your system and completelyt erase anything you currently have. after you run the disc, the old information you saved can be added back using whatever media it was you chose to save it to. (flash drive, dvd, cd, external hd)

Windows asking me to format my flash drive


Just format your flash drive! Before you start formatting your flash drive, transfer all data from your flash drive 'cause when you format your flash drive, it will erase all the data. After you have formatted the flash drive, then you can transfer back the data to your flash drive.

My pc has a samsung HD161HJ hard drive as a second hard drive but now it wont reconise it in my computer and when it does it wont let me save anything on it


It sounds like your drive is going bad. If you have a back up of your data, install a new drive and restore your data.
If your system can not recognize your drive, it means it can't read sector 0 from your drive. This sector contains crucial initial information about your drive, and it wouldn't work without it.

Good luck!

I can not save my work to my portable flash drive. It will only let me save once then it will advice me to check door is closed or the disc or cd is not writable. I am trying to save on my flash drive...


Hi,

this may be because the flash drive is locked in some way so that it allows you to save only once. format te flash drive and drive again and let me know what happens.

please rate me. thank you.

  3. apply settings and save and exit
  4. reboots automatically
  5. press any key when prompted

Well the blue light from my transcend jf v30 lgb flash drive doesnt turn on


If this is in all pc's it is a good indication a usb port on the the pc pr laptop has put out more than the 5volts that is normal and burned out the LED on the flash drive.

If the drive is still working, save data as soon as possible, it may fail at any time.

This had happened to me when I purchased an emachines someone else had assembled/upgraded. they connected the usb front header backwards and I fried my flash drive. the drive got hot, led was no good but it worked for about 5 min. on another machine before it was toast.
