I am using Windows 7 Ultimate. I bought 32GB Kingston Datatraveler G3.when plugged in its is detected as a AB usb 2.0 usb device. windows says it needs formatting, (raw format) can not format it even using...


click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes

automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start

you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive

I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box

then you restore it to its default status


Right click on usb drive select properties you will have an array of options


Select the hardware option then select your drive properties policies

restore defaults


In XP


Right click on your drive select properties then on customize restore Default in W 7

Try to format the thumb drive to fat system rather than fat32. All of my drives are all set to fat sys file and haven't had any problems. It couldn't hurt trying it in Fat sys file!

Hi ! I've just bought a Kingston DataTraveler C10 thumbdrive. When I clicked on it in My Computer, I saw it had some preinstalled files (some applications). When cliking on install, I received a message...


Hey!

It's actually fine even if you delete/format the contents of the USB. Regarding that message, looks like that program would only work for a different region. The USB stick will still function properly. The truth is it's best advised that every time you buy a storage device for your computer, you should format it just to make sure that there are no unwanted stuff in it and to make sure that you have a clean storage device.

Hope this helps! :D

Use any linux bootable distro, like puppy (100 MB ) Slax ( 200 MB) or ubuntu to make a live boot, or use any pc which has linux installed can format your USB to its full capacity.
