You need to o this anyway so try this and see if you can see your files. your file names in the pen drive may be to long or have characters in them that fat32 cannot see.

Windows XP:
Your computer needs to be NTFS to see the large hdd, and to use files larger than 4 gig. If you computer is Fat32, then it will not see a large external or internal drive when the files in a folder on that drive add up to more than 4gb.
The drive needs to be NTFS because when you start adding files to it, eventually it will freeze.

Fat32 to NTFS
-------------------
you can change the file system with out losing the data

To Check your hard drive, flash drive or external hard drive do this. They ALL need to be NTFS to handle today's large size file addressing..

Open my computer, right click the drive >properties. In the pop up it will say FAT or NTFS in the file system. If its FAT you need to change it to NTFS to handle large files and drive sizes.

Do it in this order:
1, Open my computer> right click the drive >properties >tools >check now >tick both boxes to clear the disk of any errors, then:
2. defrag the drive (tools)
3. Enter the convert command like this:
say the usb drive is F:
Click Start > Run > "convert F: /fs:ntfs /v /nosecurity /x" without the quotes.

same for your C drive. (paste above convert command and change the drive letter)

I have done this a lot and never lost any data. Just don't interfere or take risks. The biggest risk is a power failure while its doing it. It doesn't take long. If you find it doesn't do the conversion, then run Chkdisk to fix errors then try again.


You can read about it in XP help files.
Click start >help and support >type format in the search - look in the overview.

The problem you are talking about is most probably of the virus infection. Try to format your pen drive in your system and you can restore back your pen drive.

These kingston pen drives should load without having to find a driver on anything newer than xp and up. try it in a different port on the rear of your machine if possible and make sure you fully seat the stick into the usb port, as this will sometimes cause this problem. once inserted you should be able to browse the kingston drive on "my computer". if not look for a damaged socket or try the key in another computer to verify if it works properly

Hi i have purchased a kingston pen drive 32 gb and whenever i copy any file it shows as corrupt


There are many duplicate Pen drives usually 32, 64 GB.... They are very cheap price without warranty.

Next time buy a pen drive only from a shop like Computer Peripheral vendor where you will find the Pen Dive more expensive but with warranty. They are real one and their capacity are 2, 4 or 8Gb
