Hi johnny_johnm
PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER IF YOU FIND IT HELPFUL !
If your flash drive data is still getting corrupted After going to My Computer, Right click the Removable drive, Go to Properties >Tools. Run Error Checking and Scan for errors and fix them. The files that are corrupt or in bad sectors already will not work but at least the new transferred files should work.
scandrive5ze.jpg If all fails, format your drive. It will delete all the data from your USB drive and make it fresh and hopefully remove all errors. The software for formatting comes on the CD or available on support sites for your branded usb drive on the net. For some reason, when I ran this formatting software, it would say the USB drive is not connected.
How did I format my flash drive? Right click removable drive and select and format the drive. Then scan and fixes all errors. So all the bad sectors are fixed and my drive has become all new and is working well now.
formatdrive3ji.jpg In the File System drop down, you will see FAT and FAT32. So which one to select?
If you right click Removable Drive >Properties
driveprop2hf.jpg The General Properties of the USB drive reveals it is FAT, so I use FAT in the format utility. Then just select "Quick Format" and "Start" and all data will be deleted and hopefully all errors are now gone

The file system is likely corrupted. This can happen if you remove the usb drive from the computer without clicking "Safely remove hardware' first, (in your taskbar).

There is little chance that you can recover the data.

Just in case, try inserting the drive into different usb ports, preferably also on different computers. If the result is always the same, you will have to format your drive.

Insert the drive into a usb port. Assuming you use windows, click Start, click My Computer, find your USB drive in the list and RIGHT click on it. You will see a Format option. Click on that and use default or FAT. A quick format should do.

Good luck.

Of course, unlike most CDs which you can't rewrite, USB sticks work like hard drives. You can write anything on them at any time, until it's full. And of course when you remove files from the USB stick you can clear more space and you can add new files.

I hope I was able to help.

your flash is now defective. buy new one.

Kingston... | Answered on Jul 25, 2011


what you need to do is connect your usb drive, then open a command prompt window (Programs->accesories) and in this window type:

diskpart.exe
and press enter

you will be presented with another window similar to the first. In this new window type:

list volume
and press enter

this will show you a list of all drives connected to your machine.

Next type:
select volume *


where * is the volume number of the required drive listed in the list volume section.
and press enter
This will select the drive for the change you are about to make.

type:
detail volume
and press enter

this will list all of the attributes to do with the selected drive, you should see in there that the disk is write protected.

next type:
ATTRIBUTES DISK CLEAR READONLY
and press enter. Once the window has finished what it's doing you can close all of the command prompt windows and your disk should be ready to use again.

Hope this wasn't too long winded and has been of some use to you.

click start control panel administrive tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties then security select take full control in windows 7


USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:

- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
