Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I want to load information onto the flash drive but I can't get past password, locking/unlocking and partitions.

\015 I purchased a TDK 8gb flash drive and all I'm able to do is change the password and lock and unlock the security system. The instructions I've seen want me to do a partitian also. I'm not interested in security, passwords or partitions; all I want to do is load information onto this flash drive.\015\012Can you be of any help?\015\012\015\012thanks,\015\012Nick\015

Answers :

When you insert it into the pc and the box opens asking what you want to do,just close the box,Then double click on My computer and you will see it listed as a drive,You can double click it and once it open,you can drag and drop anything you want on it or once you know the drive letter assigned to it,you can go to whatever file you want to store on it and just right click the file,click send to,and choose the drive.

This soultion assumes you ahve a drive brand new from the box as thre are unpluging issues that can corrupt boot sectors. Either way Reformating should solve the problem.

Not knowing how much you already know let me say that most newer computers using such operating systems as Vista/XP/OSX do not require flash drive specific drivers. Unless you have a special third party security application the solution is likely in formating the disk to a file system standard your computer(s) use. NTFS is required for Vista but FAT less than 32GB works under XP, Mac and earlier Windows operating systems. If your drive shows up on the desktop but you can't write to it it is likely a different file management format than your computer's operating system uses. Reformating should clear this. Copy any files (if any) on the drive which you wish to keep before formating.

That said and not knowing which TDK model you have, You'll need to initially partition it while formating for the drive file system that matches your need.

As a part of your formatting, I am suggesting a partition of 1 to insure maximum storage space is accessible. On the outchance you may have a counterfiet drive(which is hard to detect otherwise) this process will tell you the true amount of storage on the drive. No dispersion on you but the fact is there are many USB drives of lower capacity which were repackaged under various name brands as higher capacity drives. The file management sector is forged to report the higher capacity on these bogus drives.

Once formatted with a compatible file management system you should be able to "drag and drop" files onto the drive image or you can use the "copy to function" in windows.
