Possibilities:
1) One of your USB devices have faulted, or is causing a resource conflict (or similar)
-- Remove all USB devices, and reboot.
2) Your USB chip/ports have been damaged.
-- Find a spare HardDisk or bacjup your data and re-install Windows and see how that goes.
3) Your Power Supply Unit (PSU) isnt supplying enough power to your PC (usually caused by a Video card upgrade). Try a more powerful PSU ... 400watts should do the trick
4) Bad memory (RAM) can cause wierd problems. run memtest for an hour to make sure your memory is ok





It seems that many people are still getting the 'USB Device not Recognized' problem from time to time. Unfortunately there is no easy fix.
Firstly, it's recommended that you make sure every one of your motherboard drivers are completely up-to-date, but you probably already knew that.
In XP, after a USB port isn't used for a long while the USB driver built into the OS sets the OHCI controller to suspend. When you plug a device back in, it can sometimes fail to 'wake up' properly. This problem was supposedly fixed in SP1 but there is a related registry hack that may still be able to help.
Run regedt32.exe and navigate to;
HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Usb
Create the Usb key if it doesn't already exist. Under this key, create a new DWORD value called DisableSelectiveSuspend and give it a value of 1. Then restart the PC.
A long shot perhaps, but I recall having similar problems with a USB hub built into my Microsoft keyboard and adding this key seemed to solve it. It wouldn't hurt in trying .
Alternatively, removing all entries relating to USB in Device Manager and all associated USB drivers will force XP into refreshing the USB driver stack.
Begin by unplugging all USB devices, then use Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel to uninstall any USB driver software. Next, boot up into safe mode and go to Device Manager. Once in device manager make sure 'Show hidden devices' is checked under the View menu. Uninstall all device entries in this order;
1. USB peripheral devices (printers etc.)
2. HID and/or Composite USB (Human Interface Devices) You're using PS/2 input devices so you may not have this entry.
3. USB Root Hub(s)
4. USB Host Controller(s) (Universal or Enhanced Host Controllers)
Then boot back into Windows (not safe mode) and it should populate the Root Hubs & Host controllers again. Proceed to plug your USB devices back in, starting with your powered hub. Be aware that most USB printers and scanners need to have their drivers installed first before you plug them in.
Hopefully some of this may be of help, let us know how you get on.

SOURCE: 8GB Kingston Data Traveller only has 101mb available!

Hi Cristina,
This is Azeem Inam. your data traveller does not accept data over 101MBs. There can be two reasons for this problem. 1. there may be a virus that has provided a limitation on the copying facility. 2. This can be a partition problem. All you need to do is to use the software called DM (Disk manager). This is a DOS versioned software. Go into its advance installation option and then accept the hard disk kingston data traveller. It will take you to another menu showing the partition styles you may choose. you'll have to choose FAT32 type. then in the next menu you'll have to choose partition size by pressing enter button. and then accepting format you are done. it will start working as new again. Thanks for consulting your problem.

What is the password for the new kingston USB DT109?


It is true that locking mobile storage devices, such as USB drives, with Imation Lock is an excellent way to protect your data.


However, using Imation Lock with a Kingston USB drive can create problems.

Learn how to unlock your Kingston USB drive so you can use it once again.


Ensure that your Kingston USB drive has been removed from your computer's USB port.

Start the Imation Lock software by double clicking the Imation Lock.


Plug in the Kingston USB into a USB port immediately after the "Please Insert the Device or Run This Utility as Privileged User" message appears.


Access your Kingston USB drive by clicking Start > Computer.

Double click on the device.


Start the Imation Lock software again by double clicking the Imation Lock.

Disable the password protection by clicking the open lock icon.


or


If you have password protected a USB drive or partition on your computer and have since forgotten the password, you will need to completely erase the drive.


Erasing and reformatting the drive will remove any password protection, software and data on the drive preventing you from accessing the drive.


The process is simple using Window's Disk Management utility.


Log into the computer as the administrator.


Open the Windows Start menu, select "Run," type "Compmgmt.msc" and click "OK." In Windows Vista and Windows 7, simply type the command into the "Search" field.


Select "Disk Management."


Locate the password-protected drive.

Right-click it and select "Delete." Confirm the action.


The drive will be erased and become unallocated free space.


Hope this helps.

My pen drive is of 2GB i dont know how but now it showing 1.50GB as used space and only 500mb odd free space and its completely empty,there is no data inside plz solve my problem


Insert the USB stick in your computer, then go to "Start" then "My Computer", locate the USB icon and right click and select "Properties". From there you can do a format of the stick. This will erase all the data including some hidden files that you might have and solve the problem.

Note that even though it says 2Gb, the data you can use is slightly less. This is true for any storage device out there.

I have a 4 GB kingston USD pen drive when I try to save data It says no space


Good Day!

See first the free space of your Pen Drive, to do this, go to MY COMPUTER then right click your PEN DRIVE and click properties, you will see how much is the available space. And also try to see the file size that you are copying and compare it to the free space of your Pen Drive. You can't copy file more than the capacity or the free space of your Pen Drive, that is why you come up with that error message.

Hope I was able to help.

My 2 gb usb kingston can't open files. not formatted


Sound like it is infected with virus. Find a computer with a good Anti Virus and Malware Program. Go to My Computer and right click the USB drive and select the Anti Virus program that shows on the list.

When scan is completed, right click the USB drive in My Computer and select Properties then select Tool and then click the Check Now tab.
Next check the two brackets and click start.

Should be good as new after.

Not able to copy more than 1GB into 2GB Kingston SD card


Hi 1123sun,

Copy your files off the card. Then Format the card and select FAT32 file system. After the format is done try the card again and see if you can copy more files to it.
