You will have to be the computer administrator to change any values on any hard drive

click start control panel user accounts you should see a box with the administrator and the guest account if you have made one click on the administrator this may vary depending on which operating system you have

click start click to open on my computer you should see your hard drive usually C: right click select properties there will be an array of options select the security tab option then advanced make sure you have full control in windows 7 this will also apply to usb drives
right click on your usb drive select properties select sharing then select advanced sharing make sure there is a tick in the share this folder box
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: D: or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.

Theoretically, you can't format a more than 32 GB drive with FAT/FAT32 file system. In your case you have to choose the NTFS file system to format your 64 GB USB flash drive. However, if you really need to format it with FAT32, you got to use the command line or a third party tool. Hope this is going to help you.

512MB KINGSTON DATA TRAVELER BECOMES SKYMEDI USB DRIVE USB DEVICE..PLS HELP


I think that I have a similar problem (and a potential solution)

1. My thumb drive is 4GB "super talent", and I have used it for about 2years

2. Suddenly, it show up as "REMOVABLE" SKYMEDI USB DEVICE (!)

3. I tried "google" for answer... and did not get further

4. Finally, I righ click on "my computer" -> select "manage" the "computer management" MMC windows open

4.1 I tried the "Disk Management" and it still can not connect to it

4.2 I clicked on "Removable Storage" ... and then I "SKYMEDI..."

4.3. I righ click on the device and select "Task" -> "Free" (thinking ... what can be worst!)

4.4 ... sunddenly ... I see my drive back ... with everything on it....


I hope that this help (... I am guessing that the "removable storage" manager locked this device somehow)

Regards
