Hello insert the drive in the usb port.

When you see the drive in the control panel, right click on it and choose format.

Select NTFS in the selection box, and mark quick format and click start.

This could take a while.

You just have to save ALL the previous saved files, before you format, because the files will be lost, when the the drive is formatet.

Good luck

Hi,

I would venture that your pen drive has a problem with its File Allocation Table. Being a 256 leads me to think that it has been in service for quite some time. Perhaps a full format is necessary. May I recommend that you use HP Drive Key Boot Utility available here. Of course formatting would erase all and everything inside the pen drive.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I bought a Kingston Datatraveler 32 GB but when copying files of 5 GB or more I got a Message that the file destination on the datatraveler is too small


You might need a bigger drive ?
In the Microsoft Windows operating system, you can copy and paste 5 GB files as long as you have enough disk drive space. The disk drive to which you're pasting the file must be formatted using the New Technology File System (NTFS), which supports the copying and pasting of very large files.

Purchase a large capacity USB external hard disk drive from a reputable vendor. Make sure that the hard disk drive is at least 100 GB. Connect the external hard disk drive to a spare USB port in your computer. Wait for the Windows operating system to recognize the hard disk drive. Double-click on the "Computer" icon on the Windows Desktop, after which a window will appear listing all of your disk drives. Establish the letter of the new hard disk drive you have just installed. For the purpose of this article, the drive letter is assumed to be "E." Right-click on drive "E," click on "Format," change the file system to "NTFS," then click on the "Start" button. Wait for the process to complete. Click on the 5 GB+ file to select it, then press "Ctrl" + "C" on your keyboard to copy the file to the Windows Clipboard. Click on the "Computer" icon on the Windows Desktop, then double-click on the "E" drive. This will open the root folder of the hard disk drive in the same window. Press "Ctrl" + "V" on your keyboard to paste the 5 GB+ file from the Windows Clipboard to the new hard disk drive. Wait for the process to complete, which will take several minutes.

To solve the problem use HP USB DISK STORAGE FORMAT TOOL V2.1.8. You can find it at http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=197. Do not format your 32GB Kingston PenDrive with NTFS file system since it does not function. Use FAT32 instead.

Why can't my Toshiba ext hdd accept files more than 4GB? those files are .mkv formats. thanks!


The Toshiba is formatted with the 'FAT32' file-system, which is limited to 4GB per file.
Your 'C:' disk-drive is formatted with the 'NTFS' file-system, which has a much-larger limit.

So, use the 'DISKPART' command-line utility to "convert" the Toshiba from FAT32 to NTFS.
DISKPART is easy to use, but be careful to use it correctly.

Theoretically, you can't format a more than 32 GB drive with FAT/FAT32 file system. In your case you have to choose the NTFS file system to format your 64 GB USB flash drive. However, if you really need to format it with FAT32, you got to use the command line or a third party tool. Hope this is going to help you.
