Two of the most common causes of I/O (Input/Output) device errors are driver based. Typically, either the device's driver is not enabled or it is out of date. The driver component has an important function, as it acts as a motorlike force that propels USB/plug-and-play hardware into a driving action within the computer. It is the connecting communicating link signaling the CPU to a desired movement. And while not all I/O device error solutions are simplistic, as a good starting point, you can try troubleshooting using a few basic steps, and you might not need to attempt anything else. Access "Control Panel" from the Start menu and then choose "Performance and Maintenance." Click "System" and then go to the Hardware tab and click on "Device Manager." Find the device that is registering an error by expanding the nodes of the appropriate category. If the device has a red "X" on the icon next to its description, the hardware is disabled; proceed to Step 4 to enable it. Otherwise, go to Step 5. Go to the General tab and click "Enable Device" found under the Device Status section; then press "OK." (Note: You may have to follow prompts, as indicated through an enabling device wizard. If you do, continue to click "Next" and follow the prompts until the process has completed.) Test the hardware. If an error is shown, proceed to Step 5. Go to the General tab and click "Troubleshoot" found under the Device Status section then press "OK." Follow the prompts to solve the issue. If an error is still shown, proceed to Step 6. Go to the Driver tab and click "Update Driver." Follow the prompts until the process has completed and then test the hardware.

your pen rive has malfunctioned and there is no way you can get a faulty pen drive working again

Kingston Digital... | Answered on Jun 19, 2011


This is a Flash drive, not a Hard drive. If it is plugged into a USB port on your PC or laptop then the computer will automatically load the drivers for it and assign a drive letter - usually E or F (C is the hard drive in the PC, D is usually a DVD drive). This should work with Windows XP, Windows Vista & Windows 7. Other oerating systems may require a driver to be downloaded (if available).

if there is a switch on the side that changes colour from white to red that is the write protect, you may also have reached the capacity of writes to the card and this is also why it is saying write protected as it cant write to it anymore. These flash drives do have a high amount of writes for its life, but if you have been using it as a memory booster for vista or win 7 then those read and writes will soon mount up.

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
