If its the windows XP you are using make sure you add the service pack 2 . then the prob wont occur.

BUt the prob you are having is rare, service pack installation or reinstallation should mostly do the job for you.

Usb pen drive transcend D33193 not recognized problem:

You either have a non functioning Transcend drive which happens, or a non functioning counterfeit drive which also happens, alot. Also, these drive are susceptible to breakage if left in pockets, school bags , etc. Be sure to examine the metal plug end for starightness into the drive housing, if it at an awkward angle, you may well have broken the drive.

If you go to Control panel, system, device manager.

It should show up as an unrecognized device. Right click uninstall, then up top click on "actions" and select "scan for hardware changes". A dialog box will pop up asking if Windows should search for the latest driver- click "Yes, this time only"

If it is a driver issue, this should fix it up. If it will not do anything at all, you need to return your drive to the place you purchased for a refund.

4 gb pendrive led glows but now shown in my computer, i tried to check in many computers and laptops but the same problem. please help me.

umm, how old are your computer and laptops that you're using to check?
It could be that they don't have a USB 2.0 port.

Is there any message at the bottom right of your computer when you plug it in saying anything related to a USB device.

Also you can click on Start/"right-click" My Computer/Manage/Device Manager/Universal Serial Bus Controllers --- make sure that this says it's working properly and enabled.

My Pen drive is 1 Gb Transcend,When i format it show 4 Gb & Error

its probably a virus trying formating on windows 98 or on linux based system may work for u also check when the pen drive isnt connected properly or the usb port or connection is loose it may say a read only pen drive due to slow speed connection of pen drive to computer

Cannot reformat my USB 4gb kingston

the reason is ur pen drive has lost its capacity to store datas. u cant use that pen drive anymore and it cannot be formatted also. try for a new pen drive

Problems vith drive.

try this:
Open Device manager (the one that shows all system devices), open SYSTEM DEVICES.

There you will find unrecognized PCI device. Click update driver for it, then install automatically, the computer will scan all the folders for the driver and will install a correct one. Then, in SOUNDS AND DEVICES you will see HI-DEF unrecognized, update a driver in a similar manner. It may comeup with some error, but it should work.

Pen drive problem

Vista doesnt recognize all pen drives. only few like Sandisk, Transcend etc get recognized. Even brands like kingston don't get recognized. so to make them work install the driver for the pendrive. If you specify the brand of your pen drive ..i will try to help out with a driver .
