Dear,
I followed your instructions, but although I assigned a letter for the volume (there was no letter), the pen drive is not mapped in explorer. I can open it's content by the disk manager.
Can you help me? Thanks

I solved the problem renaming C\windows\system32\sptd.sys to sptdxxx.sys.
I got the solution in the site http://www.everythingusb.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=9488.
They explain:
"If you have ever loaded Daemon Tools (it appears the newer versions are the problem) and your USB Mass Storage Drives will not show up in Explorer then your problem is a file called sptd.sys. It resides in either "system32" or "system32\drivers". You can simply rename it or delete it. Restart and Wahlah!!
Note: Alcohol 120% and some other apps load these tools to run. If you delete or rename this file Dameon Tools will not function properly, thereby whatever app may be using DT. In Dameon Tools you can repair this file... but then you will be back in this boat again!"

I thank for the help,and hope I am helping somebody else, too.

Try inserting it in a usb. You will usually hear 2 beeps once its detected. Go to my computer and look for it there. If you don't see it wait about 30 seconds & see if it pops in. If not try moving it in and out slowly and carefully hopefully until you hear or see it's detected. You may have to close my computer and reopen it to refresh it. If you do see it in my computer but won't open by clicking on it, right click and click open or explore.
Another way that it may show up is to open my computer, right click "C" and click explore. You'll notice on the right side a column "folders". It may show up there under the name of your device or go down to control panel click the plus sign, if you don't see it click on portable media devices. Just look through the left column throughly for it. Mine shows always at the bottom.

My louck flash is formated and now i can not use the space what do i do?


Your Imation Swivel Flash Drive comes formatted and ready to use right out of the box.
If you will be using the drive exclusively with Macintosh computers, do not format the Imation Swivel Flash Drive. The formatting message appears if your Macintosh has not yet been set up to read Windows-formatted files. Refer to your Mac's user manual to learn how to enable Windows file read functionality.
Also, be aware that when you format your Imation Swivel Flash Drive with NTFS, you will not be able to store as much data as your would without formatting. The format file used by NTFS will use some of the available space on the Flash drive - for instance, on a 128MB Imation Swivel Flash Drive, you may lose up to 8MB to the NTFS format files.


How do I format my Imation USB 2.0 Swivel Flash Drive in Windows? Your drive must be set up as a single public partition, since neither Windows Explorer nor the Macintosh OS will recognize a password protected partition.
To format the drive in Windows:
  • Go to My Computer
  • Locate the corresponding drive letter for the Swivel Flash drive (i.e. removable drive F)
  • Right click
  • Choose Format from the menu
A dialog box will come up and allow you to format your Swivel Flash Drive. Depending on your operating system, you can choose to format the drive in FAT, FAT32, or NTFS.

How to I remove or resize a partition on my Imation Swivel Pro Flash Drive? To resize or remove a secure partition, you will need to do the following:
  • Open the Flash Manager software on your hard drive
  • Choose Create a partition
  • Move the slider to zero (0)
Why don't I see a drive letter for my Imation Swivel Flash Drive?

This problem occurs if you map a network drive to the first available drive letter following the drive letters for the local volumes and CD/DVD drives. When you install a new device or volume, a software called Mount Manager tries to assign drive letters to the new volumes. But since the software does not recognize mapped drive letters, it assigns the next available local drive letter to the new device. This causes a collision with the existing mapped network drive.
Since the problem is related to your Microsoft operating system, they are your best source for resolving this issue. For more information, click here.

My san disk 2gb pen is canot open but light is blinking &showing remuvabal disk on my computer


USB Pen or stick drives usually use the letters "F" or "G" drives on your computer. If these drive letters are being used, the USB drive will not be available. Also, if this is the first time you are using the USB drive, it is possible the drive is not formatted. Although this is unlikely.

I will outline instructions below to use the Disk Management tool in windows to see if the drive shows all the drives connected to your computer. If your computer is recognizing the drive as you describe. I am confident USB Pen drive will show up in disk management. You may be able to assign a drive letter and make the drive visible in you my computer window.

The directions for using disk management are listed below. A note of caution, do not make any changes on you Disk 0. or "C" drive, as this is you main hard drive that starts your computer.

Right click on you “My Computer” Icon
A menu will open
Chose “Manage”
The Computer Management window will open

The Computer Management window is broken down into 3 sections. The first section on the left side of the window shows a menu. Disk Management is on the lower portion of the menu. The right side is separated into two sections, top and bottom. The top portion shows a list of active drives on the computer. The lower portion shows all drives connected to the computer. CD or DVD drives that have no disk will not show as active drives on the top section, but can be seen in the lower section.


The lower shows each drive, their drive letter and status. The left section will have small boxes showing drive numbers. Drive 0 is usually your main hard drive. To the right of the smaller section is a larger section which shows the driver letter, size of the driver and condition (if working correctly will show “healthy”) This is the area you can right click and get a menu that will allow you to: open, explore, mark the partition as active, change the driver letter, format the drive or delete a partition.

In this area, you can assign the USB drive any drive letter that is not being used and this will make it visible in windows. A drive this is having a problem may show that it needs to be formatted. This can be done from this window as described above.

Please follow these directions and see if you can make your drive visible. If you have any questions about the instructions or need further assistance, feel free to reply to this message and I will assist you further.

Pen drive not showing in my explorer.


Its a common problem with the pendrive, in windows. some time it doesnot detect or not showing clearly that device. you have to check your pendrive manufacturer and driver details. and also check it out driver signing.

Do you have mapped network drives on your computer? If you have this may cause your problem. When you insert the PEN Drive into USB and the "safely remove hardware" icon appers try to right-click on it and choose "eject" or "remove" (don't remember :), then pull the PEN DRIVE from the USB and connect it again. Go to Windows Explorer and try to open all your mapped drives, then the content of your PEN DRIVE must be loaded into your Windows Explorer. This is happened sometimes, because PEN DRIVE try to assign the first free drive letter after your phisical drive letters, and if you have a mapped drive letter, the PEN DRIVE assign one of them.

ME-940 usb enclosure not reconized


This behavior occurs if you map a network drive to the first available drive letter after the drive letters for the local volumes and CD-ROM drives. When you install a new device or volume, Mount Manager, which assigns drive letters to volumes, does not recognize the mapped network drive and assigns the next available drive letter to the new device or volume. This causes a collision with the existing mapped network drive. To prevent this issue from occurring, when you map a network drive, assign the highest available drive letter to the mapped network drive. To work around this issue if the new volume appears in Disk Management, specify a different drive letter for the new device or volume. To do this, follow these steps: 1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Manage. 2. Under Computer Management (Local), click Disk Management. 3. In the list of drives in the right pane, right-click the new drive and then click Change Drive Letter and Path(s). 4. Click Change, and in the drop-down box, select a drive letter for the new drive that is not assigned to a mapped network drive. 5. Click OK, and then click OK again.
