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

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.

Transcend v10 flash drive switched to read only!!!!!!


Hello,

I was searching Transcend support site and found a recovery tool that may help. Here is the link. http://www.transcendusa.com/Support/DLCenter/Software/JetFlash%20Recovery%20Tool.zip

The support site describes it as "This program will erase all data stored on the JetFlash drive". Hope this helps.

Thanks

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.

Got a question for you...


The windows XP pro cd has the tools you need
DO NOT FLASH THE BIOS
DO NOT ERASE THE HARD DRIVE
sometimes when the hard drives are erased and they are SATA the bios won't recognize a RAW SATA drive.
  1. enter the setup utility and configure the BIOS Boot order to boot from CD/DVD
  2. insert Win XPPRO CD
  3. apply settings and save and exit
  4. reboots automatically
  5. press any key when prompted
  6. select the install
  7. select the primary partition you want and delete that partition.
  8. confirm you want to delete it,
  9. quick format to ntfs.
  10. once formated the loading of the OS is auto

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.
