I bought my FIRST Memory Stick, 16GB, to use wehn I uprgrade from W'7 Trial Version to Retail Version.........the seller said it was compatible with Vista and W'7'; I put the stick into my USB port and it showed it had FAT 32 on it and, NOT knowing for sure, I figured that it probably should have NTFS system on it before I transfer things on to it. I told my W'7 to format it to NTFS and it came back that it could not be done.
Please tell me IF I can use this stick with FAT32 to store data off of my present W'7 OS - to be re-installed onto a NEW install of W'7 in the near future.....OR.....does this stick have to have NTFS on it??
I have three memory sticks non now work when entered into usb. Have tried webcam and mouse in same usb they each load correctly. When I enter memory stick I hear an audio ping but no loading follows. I have tried checking if driver is up to date etc and all shows correct
I have tried another memory stick and that one isn't working either. However i have tried them on my laptop and they do work. It keeps claiming that the device drivers are not installing successfully, even though My memory stick clearly works. I performed a DriveCure scan, and everything is installed successfully. I have also tried other usb devices, such as my wacom tablet and it works fine. So it only seems to be having problems with External Memory Devices.
I downloaded about 14 CD's into My Docs Music Library and then sent them to a Kingston 2GB Data Traveler 101 USB 2.0 memory stick which plays OK on my computer.However when I insert the stick into a music player...nothing.
This should be east. I asked a hardware group and they gave me this link How To make Bootable USBUnfortunately He is showing how to make a USB with windows 7 bootable.What I want is to be able to put the equivelant of autorun.ini withthe name of the EXE. Not windows but my own software.
I had a bad memory stick that I was finally able to pin point I think. I have Memtest86 on a disc ready to go, how can I test this specific memory card only? Do I have to take the other 3 out & run the disk, or is there a way to run all together and I can pick which memory slot for it to check & run diagnostics on?
This is being used on PSP (File System is FAT32, was formatted on PSP itself) and had 26% fragmentation (6'6gb size of it). After copying all stuff I wanted to it (leaving 22% space) left all this fragmentation so decided to do a normal defrag (using defragler) since its going to need only 1 time as i dont plan to delete that stuff or replace it.
What is your opinion about if I could have gained any little performance on the memory stick doing this or not? Also didn't check yet if CCleaner can delete free space on this memory stick or not (not sure if this memory sticks store data like an HDD do so). Just doing a normal defrag on this memory stick took some good hours.
I don't know how it happened but when I turn my computer on it won't load without a memory stick in that contains the recovery CD. If I put the stick everything works perfectly.The same applies to shutting down, if I try to shutdown without the memory stick in it will just stay on the log on screen. Put it in and click shutdown and it works fine.
My 16 GB Centon memory stick I purchased @ Staples in Canada quit working & is not recognized in my computer under search. I have even installed the stick in another port on my computer & it is still not recognized.I have installed other USB sticks in the same port on my computer & they work fine, I can even download onto them.
Recently, after trying to format a memory stick I have encountered some problems:
- After right clicking on the stick or on a partition and selecting format, nothing happens. Literally nothing, its like I didn't press it. - Another a bit troubling issue, is that when I tried to scan with my antivirus, I get that the scan engine cant initialize, although the whole software works. I am using Bitdefender Internet Security 2010
I am currently scanning with ESET Online Scanned for viruses, to be sure I don't have a nasty one, but from what I see is that other then that, everything works fine. Finished the scan, with no issues. Also the troubling memory stick, i went to another PC, and was virus free and also was easily formatted. So i am afraid is something related to the system or something like that.
