Question about Dane-Elec DaneElec 2GB USB Drive Red Hard Drive

My DameElec 2GB is not working on my XP Computer

I am trying to copy some files to my DaneElec 2GB USB flash drive but my computer (Windows XP-SP3) is not recognized it. I have checked Flash Drive in two of my other computers (Windows Vista & WIn 7) and it works fine. Would you happen to have a driver or fix to get it to work in my Windows xp Computer? Just in case, I have checked the USB port on my XP computer using my HP Flash drive and the port works great.

Thanks,

Try installing the flash drive once through add new hardware wizard from control panel. it might fix the problem for you. also plug the device directly into the usb slot present in the backside of the computer.

Most movies are about 4.5GB to 8GB, this is probably why your not able to put a movie on it. Secondly a lot of flash drives say its 4GB but really its 3.5-4GB. There must be something your overlooking as file size for ti to take up that much space. go to the properties of each file and look at the folder size, might find something you missed that's taking up more space.

Dell Resource CD - not working in Windows XP SP3 version


You are using the Dell Resource CD provided by the manufacturer. This CD may not work with new versions of Internet Explorer that come with SP3 installations (if you reinstalled from a Windows XP CD not provided by Dell or if you did the Microsoft SP3 update).
You're only solution would be to use your "Service Tag" number underneath, for laptops (or on the back/side for Desktops), of your computer and go to http://support.dell.com to download the drivers for your specific system. If this computer doesn't have the drivers for you to be able to go to the internet, use a second computer and go to the site. Then download the individual drivers listed (the latest dated drivers will work best).
Once you've downloaded mainly the Video, Network, Audio drivers, use a USB Flash drive (sometimes called USB Key, USB pen drive, USB drive, etc) and copy what's been downloaded onto it. Do not double click on the files while they're on the second computer.
Once on the machine with Windows XP SP3, double click on each downloaded file (1 at a time) and follow the on-screen insctructions to install the driver. You should be fine afterwards. :) Let us know how it goes, and rate us. :)
