If you have files on the stick and it asks for formatting, the file system is probably damaged. Try a quick format on the USB-stick. DO NOT save any files to the stick. Use a file recover tool on it, like example: Piriform's Recuva. Use the Deep Scan function.

If it says that the files are probably gone, sorry. Try using it on a different system, if it says the same thing they are definitely gone. Good luck I hope it works on a different system.

Storage issue LEXAR Firefly 4GB


Empty your "Recycle Bin", to permanently detect some "hidden" files on the JumpDrive.

If necessary, try a "quick-Format" to reformat the drive, deleting all "hidden" files.

I deleted all the viewable files and folders on my lexar firefly jumpdrive, but it says that i still have almost all my memory used up. how can I clear it?


You may have hidden or locked files. If the files are locked, you'll see an icon to unlock them when you open the JumpDrive in Windows Explorer. If the files are hidden, try and show them: Tools-->Folder Options-->View--> Left Click "show hidden files and folders" Good Luck!

Usb keeps ask for formatting why? please


On brand new USB disks sometimes, from value companies, they may require a formatting, I assume it is a new USB memory stick, allow it to format to "NTFS" if that is not an option let it format to "FAT32" Hope this helps.

I dont know how to save a writing piece from the word pad onto the lexar firefly


Open Wordpad, click File-->Save As; type in your desired name for the file and click the pull down arrow near "Save in:". Select the appropriate Drive (G/D,E or whatever) that is your Firefly. Click save. The file should now be saved as a Rich Text Formatted document on your Firefly. You can save it as a Text Document as well under the "Save as type:" option. Good Luck!

Please show me step by step on using the Lexar 2GB JumpDrive FireFly flash drive. I have an HP computer. I need to back up many photos. I will buy more of the same flash drives if I learn how to use them....


What operating system are you using? Should work with XP and Vista. Go to windows explorer and click on C drive, click photos folder, select required photo, click and drag icon to the Firefly icon and release mouse button. File should be copied to jump drive.
