My USB is 8GB. But it's working as 4GB instead, my other files aren't appearing in my USB I think those hidden files are the one making my USB almost full. How can see 'em? Please help!!! :(

I have this problem with an integral USB drive, don't know what the imation lock for this is?

Posted on Oct 29, 2008

Thanks, it worked perfectly. I already thought that I would have to dispose my newly acquired Kingston flash stick after trying for hours to solve the problem.

hello is the great solution for you

Pen drive

First thing is you can try to detect your pen drives with Linux. 

(DSL Linux is just about 50 MB download. You'll need to burn it on to a CD as an IMAGE and not copy on the CD directly, then boot with the CD.It will automatically mount your USB drive and you can cpy the data to your hard disk and later format the USB drive.) 

Get it from here: 

If that too fails, then you can try recovering using a data recovery software. Or contact me and I can personally help but a live chat session would be better since posting here will take and waste time. You could contact me on 

and then we can proceed to chat and solve this issue. I won't take any charge. I'll be happy helping getting the data since I know how it feels to lose precious data.

Iomega has quite a bit of customer help info: Click: Other Products Then Click: JAZ 2GB Then Click: Windows XP Then Click: More Answers... Then type in "search text" area: "insert a disk" Then Click: Search Then Click: "Please insert a disk into drive X" error message when inserting or trying to read an Iomega disk If that website's search engine doesn't help, you can also log into: and ask the tech support people there.
