Question about Dane-Elec DaneElec 4GB USB Drive Copper Hard Drive

1 Answer

My DANE-ELEC 4 GB USB has no files in it. I emptied it after using it during several months without problems with my MacBook Pro computer. However, after I threw all the files into the waste basket, when I plug the USB into my computer, and ask for storage availability, a notice says the USB is full... and the USB won't accept storing files. Please, what can I do? Thanks for your kind assistance! Yours, Arturo Inda

You need to format it. If you do this via windows in most cases you end up with an NTFS file system which means only windows machines will read it. If you want both windows and macs to see the files then you need to format MS-DOS. Easiest way to do this is with a mac using Disk Utility program.

I have a Dane-Elec 4 GB Flash drive. I used it successfully one time, but the next time I put it in my computer (or any computer after that) the computer recognized the new device but told me "Please...


1) Instead of double-clicking, right-click and choose "explore." I hope it's that simple. Once you're in, look for a file called autorun.inf. Delete it.

2) If it won't let you explore, see if there is a "format" option instead. This will possibly solve your issue of access, and will solve your issue with your confidential data (of course, your data will be gone, but I'm guessing you're OK with that).

3) Try using another USB slot, sometimes there could be an issue with specific slots, especially if you are using hte front USB ports on a desktop
4) I know this may seem silly but turn off the computer, and then unplug the computer from the wall. Leave it unplugged for 30 seconds, plug it in and then boot up the systems. Plug in the USB drive.

5) Finally if the unit still is not being seen, it may need a low level format, contact the manufacturer and see about getting a replacement. I found their e-mail at onlinesupport@dane-memory.com

USB with plenty of capacity but apparently no availability


i just had this same problem. go to tools > folder options > view, and under hidden files and folders, click on show hidden files and folders. then click okay. then delete those hidden files, which were written overtime and stored onto the usb without your knowledge. the usb will have full memory space after you're done :)
