Solved Problem with 16GB Kingston Flashdisk...

Post by mtmt182 on Wed 03 Jun 2009, 11:35 pm

Hey,
I have a 16GB Kingston Usb Flash disk. And for some reason, now I can't use it anymore.
It still can copy a small file, but when I try to copy a bigger file (>400Mb), it takes really long time.. In the end,the process stopped (copy failed) and the indicator LED in my FlashDisk blinking constantly.. and it no longer detected on win explorer.. (but still blinking)..
What should I do? Is there a way to fix it?Or trashed it is the only way??
Please help

-Sorry for my bad english,hope you guys understand.. ^_^

Hello,

Did you safely remove the device every time you unplug it from the PC? Try to use another USB port.

Also, is the flash disk formatted with FAT32 or NTFS?

Hello,

If there is nothing important on the flash disk, I would like you to format it to NTFS. NTFS if much faster and supports larger file transfer capacities.

I just formatted it to NTFS, and the problems still the same.. Now,windows delay write notification came up.. I still can't copy a big file (>400Mb) to my flashdisk.. Is there any application to check/fix this problem? I think it's my flashdisk that has malfunctioned.. Indifferent or Blank

Hello,

It's most probably spoiled, can you try connecting it to another computer and see if it works? If not, you can send it to Kingston, I think they have a lifetime warranty for this.
