Right-click on My Computer and choose Manage
Click on Disk Management
Right-click on your Thumbdrive and select "Change drive letter and paths"

Give it another drive letter and see if it sorts itself =)

Recently , you purchased a USB flash drive that you plan to use to store work-related files. When you attempt to store a file on the USB flash drive, the computer displays an error message indicating that...


You failed to mention what operating systems are involved. What does the work computer use as an operating system. The file system format of the USB may be say as an example ntfs windows while as a hypothetical the work computer could be apple o/s using a different file system or even maybe a unix system. You may need to reformat the usb stick to be the format file system used by the work computer. Also there could be a policy in place to prevent usb sticks working on work computers to protect intellectual property or to protect against virus transferance.

Tip

Recover deleted files


This is a tip explaining step by step how to recover deleted data, even if it is already deleted from your recycle bin. Before we start, you need to download the software required to complete this task.
Click HERE to download.


After you have downloaded the software, Disc Digger, all you need to do is to double click on .exe file to run the software. The program will automatically start. Now, for this purpose, I will recover DATA from my Flash drive. Click HERE to read step by step instructions a using a Flash drive.

I will copy some files to my flash drive, format the drive, then recover the Data I formatted. You need to remember that there will be more data recovered than the data I copied, because I have used this flash drive for a while, hence, the other deleted data will also be recovered.
So lets Start!!

For this purpose, I will copy a movie to my Flash drive, format my Flash drive and recover the movie.

Here is what I did:

After I copied the movie and the format was done, I opened Disc Digger, chose the drive on which I want to recover from, and started the recovery. The pictures below will explain the steps I Followed.

To open the application, just click on the extracted icon.

Now, i chose my Flash drive as the drive which i want to recover from, and clicked next to proceed.





f8c576d.jpg

I chose the dig deeper option, as this option will recover formated files as well, not just deleted files.





71dd789.jpg

At this point you need to choose what type of file you would want to recover, i chose all file types.

Recovery process in progress. My flash drive is 8 GB in size, the recovery took 5 minutes.

Once the recovery is done, you will receive a pop up, which will state that the recovery is done.

Remember, that once the scan is complete, you need to save the files you have recovered. You need to create a folder in which you want to save the file, I just created a Folder on my desktop. Unfortunately, the name does not recover with the file, so you will need to look through the files recovered and after you have saved the recovered file, you need t rename it.

This software can also be used to recover photos from your SD memory card. Al you need to have is a SD card reader, which plugs into your USB port.

I really hope that you can find this helpful.
Please rate accordingly.

Kind regards

It sounds like it is a file format issue. I would begin checking the file formats on both of the flash drives. You will probly find that they are FAT/FAT32 and Vista is NTFS. This information will be needed to diagnose the issue.

BIOS flashing problem. Latest BIOS from Biostar site is on flash drive, F12 during POST opens the flash screen, file is selected; but then the process hangs at blinking message "Reading file, please wait",...


If I am right, writing Bios files isn't possible with your Motherboard Bios Flash Memory. I've done updating bios on many motherboards, but most of them can't be written, when I contact the manufacturers, they only say that I must have done something wrong, following the instructions, but with the same instructions and procedures, it worked on some motherboards. Not all motherboards support flashing bios, since some bus and flash memory are faster and some are not. Sometimes your pendrive (flash drive) creates this problem, so I would suggest you to use another flash drive. I hope you did format the flash drive before you write the Bios updates files, if not, you should do it and you have to write the files on an empty drive.
(This isn't a solution, only an assistance, if this doesn't help, you can still ask for another expert's help)

Good luck.


Thanks for using FixYa.

Your flash disk has been infected by virus that is why you are unable to open the flash drive. The best thing you can do is to download a good antivirus such as MacaFee or Avira or scan the flash drive for virus.

An alternative thing you can do is to insert your flash drive into a linux operated pc such as Fedora, Ubuntu, Open Susie or Redhat and then delete all the files in the Flash drive and format it

Sandisk Cruzer Professional 4GB usb flash drive issue


If you pull out the flash disk while it's working, you can damage its bootrecord. In this case Windows tells you that flash drive is not formatted because cannot read the from master boot record or FAT (file allocation table)
You can scan your flash drive attempting to repair boot record or use a flashdisk recovery tool if you have importanta data in it.
If not you can format your flash drive.
