Please copy out the data on windows 7 then delete the partition. Re-create partition and select the type that Windows XP support.

How do i format the kingston datatraveler 310 256 gb to ntfs file system


Hello insert the drive in the usb port.

When you see the drive in the control panel, right click on it and choose format.

Select NTFS in the selection box, and mark quick format and click start.

This could take a while.

You just have to save ALL the previous saved files, before you format, because the files will be lost, when the the drive is formatet.

Good luck

Kingston datatraveler 410 can not log in


you might be better using a computer with xp to save your photos to another device or even burn them to a disk
windows 7 i have found if i use a data traveller on xp then try to use it on windows 7 it will always say it needs to be formatted do you want to format now

so i have designated certain data drives to my xp and others to my windows 7 although i have found that i can use small ones on each computer 1gb to 2GB

if you right click in the bottom toolbar when this is happening select task manager under applications you will see whats running if you dont want it to be running select end now also under processes see whats ticking over the same will apply

if you can get it to be recognised it might ask to be formatted

hope this helps

I have ask you already how to install the dual boot os(Windows xp and Windows 7 ), but i don't complete yet .Can you explain to me again step_by_step in great detail ? because when i install windows xp...


Hello, this is how I dual boot my laptop with windows xp and windows 7

1. Backup all you important files, use an external hard-disk if possible
2. Make sure you have two drives or partitions: usually drive C and D
3. Insert your xp cd, do a quick format of drive C and install
4. Boot into windows xp and format format drive D if necessary
5. Insert your windows 7 DVD and follow the prompts. When it asks you to upgrade or new install, choose new installation
6. When you are asked to choose a location choose drive D
7. Complete your windows 7 installation
8. Thats it, you can now install drivers and programs

When installation is complete you will see both os options: windows 7 and previous version of windows (i.e xp)

I have done this numerous times without the need for any other step or software. The only rule is to is to install xp first, then windows 7.

All the best

Kingston Data Traveler 2.0 64 GB USB - file system corrupted - need to work on windows XP- Upon formatting the pen drive It shows that it has become a raw drive - wat is the file format for the USB to work...


Theoretically, you can't format a more than 32 GB drive with FAT/FAT32 file system. In your case you have to choose the NTFS file system to format your 64 GB USB flash drive. However, if you really need to format it with FAT32, you got to use the command line or a third party tool. Hope this is going to help you.

This Disk is write protected


Hi!
if you use Windows XP or earlier, then - right click on your flash drive, goto "properties" -> uncheck "read only" checkbox.

If you use Win 7 or Vista - then use administrator account to run format (shift+right click on program, choose "run as administrator" ). the easiest way in Win7/Vista to format your flash drive is: Start -> all programs -> Accessories -> shift+right click on command prompt -> "run as administrator" -> type fromat driver_letter /q /y and press enter (e.g. if your flash driver has letter z, then you need to type format z /q /y and press enter). This will quickly format your flash drive.

If you use Linux/Unix/MAC OS, then you can use GParted or following command in terminal:

1. su
2. Enter password when asked
3. fdisk /dev/your_flash_drive_name (e.g. dev/sda/)
mkfs -t vfat /dev/your_flash_drive_name

Hope that will help :)

First, your Windows XP must be either SP2 or SP3, and then you must add a patch to it. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/955704/en-us that is KB955794 for the patch
