Get a copy of the software from TDK itself at:

http://www.tdk-media.eu/downloads/trans_it_usb_password_pr_english.exe

it's a self contained .exe file no installation needed. This will format your flash for you if you need to and the program gets retained.

if you want a pc based format copy the software somewhere in your hard drive. in myu computer right click your flashdisk, format (fat 32 better). There clean as a whistle. copy back flashlock, then partition as you wish.

I have mistakenly formated my TDK 8GB TRANS-IT FLASHDRIVE and altough it is empty it looks only 9.95MB capacity. Any suggestion to solve this?


When the flash memory USB hard drive device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it.
Try formatting using Disk manager.
Insert the flash or USB hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

8gb TDK trans-it flash memory is invisible


Hello,

You can try this out:
After powering up your system, and you have plugged the flash drive, then Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.

On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your flash drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.

This should make your Flash Drive to be detected automatically.

Kindly keep me posted about the problem

Hope this helps you out.

Goodluck!

Unable to format the cruser pendrive


Far too often these little things have an almost invisible read/write protect button on them. Look carefully, over the entire surface of the USB Flash Drive. You might have this switch turned to Write Protect, which means there is nothing you can do, until you turn it the other way, and allow the device to be written to.

Cheers!

Only 5GB on TDK TRANS-IT USB 2.0 Flash Drive 8GB


Not the solution you might like but there have been reports of bogus/ counterfeit smaller capacity sticks/drives relabeled and programed to report higher capacities. I've been told that running a formatting/partitioning application on them reflect the true capacity but have not had to try this solution myself..

Submitted for information only but please rate so I accumulate a lot of unanswered solutions, Thanks
