Unplug your USB Drive then plug it again. There should be a notification saying "New Hardware Found" on your taskbar. Check that notification if your drive is working properly.
If not, go to Start>Right Click on My Computer>
Click Manage>...Then Choose DIsk Management>
Look for your removable storage device>
Check the capacity and the drive letter if there was no conflict with other drives of your partition>
If There's a conflict, Right Click and choose "Change drive letter and paths..."> Then change the drive letter of your USB drive.

My HDDR500E03A 500 GB is only showing 3.98 GB on total memory, what happened to the rest?


The 3.98 GB you are seeing is probably your total RAM memory and not the storage capacity of the hard drive. RAM memory is completely unrelated to the hard drive capacities.

Double click on the MY COMPUTER icon.

You should then see all the disks and drives that are currently connected to your computer. Your USB hard drive should be one of the drives listed there.

Right click on each of them and select PROPERTIES from the menu shown. This will show you the storage capacity of each drive including how much space is used and how much is free (empty).

Good luck.

My capacity genx 2gb usb chenge to 14 mb.when i connect flash disk i show cd drive added in my computer and capacity my flash disk cheng of 2 gb to 14 mb.plz help.my email shaab.a@nisoc.ir


This typically means the drive has gone bad. Try reformatting the USB drive. Some manufacturers also provide diagnostic/formatting tools on their website that might be able to fix it. But likely it will need replaced. Lucky 2GB USB drives now only run $7.99 or less.

How to remove write protection from 8gb pen drive. I have installed many softwares but it shows ''Disk is Write protected''. Please help to solve this problem.


hi,,

ok on the pen drive itself,, is a small switch with a lock on it at one end,, and an open lock on the other.. Its a small switch,, usually at the sides or back of it.. just push the switch in the other side to unlock it..

if there isnt one..

Regarding the write protect error, I believe its a common symptom for fake USBs. These are ones which say they have large capacity, but the seller placed a much smaller capacity chip. In your case, its possible that the pen drive's REAL capacity is only 256MB! Even the OS is fooled into thinking its a large capacity USB drive.

I saw some Sony branded USB's with a capacity of 32GB a few months ago. They are obviously fake.. but I do wonder how many people fell for them.

you can try formatting the drive ,, by
  • start
  • computer
  • right click on removable disc (your drive)
  • click format
well I hope that helps you out.. Other than the above there isnt much more that can be done..

Reduced Hard Drive Capacity with Internal to External Kit


Problem can be tricky.. though i offer my two cents.

1. some BIOS have upper limit of hard disk capacity. check that out. try connecting IDE device to IDE connector in same comp and see if it is being detected properly.

2. seagate guys are true .. IDE to usb conversion can be tricky ... a lot depends on card convertor.

my advice would be if you have precious data on it ... first take a backup of it, if possible connecting the disk to nomal ide connector.

Problem in pen drive/mp3 player capacity


when you hook it up to the puter, go into My computer right click on the removable drive then click on explore disc and see what oter types of files are taking up the extra memory as if there are none then the drive has bad memory cells.
