Error: There Is No Disk In The Drive - Usb Fat32


I'm working with a usb fat32 type flash drive which is currently blank. I've tried to copy files onto it and it has become somewhat corrupt, displaying the error message "there is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive deviceharddisk1dr2. " I don't know what the problem is. A couple of days ago this piece of equipment was working just fine.

Format Usb Drive In Fat32

I have an external usb enclosure with maxtor hd. I wanted to fornmat it in fat32 to copy mp3 music to use with pioneer vsx919 receiver. First i formatted in exfat (vista) thinking that the receiver would be able to read it but no go. Then i used hp usb format program for flash drive and it formatted only 128 gig, which is fine for my purpose. Plugged back in the main pc to copy the files, the drive was not recognized. What can i do to get it formatted in fat32 and able to copy the files?

Usb Flash Drive Reformatting From Fat To Fat32

I just bought my first thumb drive. Its a 1 gig corsair. My question is about formating. I noticed that it has been formated from the factory in fat. Why not fat32? Is there any benefit to reformatting from fat to fat32? Or is there any benefit of one over the other?

Usb Drive Not Working After Reformat From Exfat To Fat32

I just purchased a 64gig usb and i was super excited n stuff, well it was working fine but it was an exfat format, obviously since the computeres at my school were windows xp i knew it wouldnt work. So i decided to format it to ntfs but failed miserably, instead i managed to format it to fat32 and it was functioning properly. I wanted to test it before i would attempt to reformat to ntfs so i threw on a movie on there. Half way through the copy process the power cut out, so i left the computer and went to the movies came back, its not working. Windows just says " usb device not recognised". So i tried it on all ports, even on my laptop and didnt work. Ive tried evertthing since, and im desperate to get this thing working, im pretty sure its not a usb port problem because my mouse, printer and everything else works fine.

W2k Hd Error Message: The Disk In Drive D Is Not Formatted

As topic, i received an error on my w2k system "the disk in drive d is not formatted, format is now?". Yes, it is a w2k (windows 2000 professional) system. It's an old reliable system that i use it as a file server. Last night, i noticed some files disappeared on my d: drive. I restarted my computer and then i couldn't access my d: drive anymore. When i try to access it, it pops up with an error message stating "the disk in drive d is not formatted, format is now?". Any suggestion of what would cause this kind of problem and how to recover data?

And yes, i did use google to search for some answers, and i have 2 possible solutions on my hands right now, hdd re generator and partition table doctor. I am just curious if anyone have any other suggestion.

Usb Pen Drive - The Disk In Drive Is Not Formatted

This issue happens most of the time with my pc which is running win xp pro, p4 1. 7ghz, 1gb ram. By most of the time i mean every once in a while it works fine. I'll plug the sandisk 512mb pen drive into the any usb port and i get the message "the disk in drive ? Is not formatted would you like to format it now?" If i click yes the format window comes up then i get the message "windows was unable to complete the format" "the disk in drive ? Cannot be formatted". This also happens with my floppy drive.

Boot Up From Usb Floppy Disk Drive

So i need a floppy drive. I do not have a power dongle, the small one on my antec neopower 480 for a floppy drive. Someone at microcenter told me that there are power dongle converters for floppys. But i was wondering, since i need to install my sata drivers off an a: drive when i boot from my xp c. D. Will a usb floppy drive could act exactly the same as an internal one? Can i boot up from a usb floppy disk drive?

Can Access Usb Drive Only Through Disk Manager

I recently upgraded to xp pro sp2 (from home). Before i used my ipod and flash disk on home (mass storage). After installing xp pro i found that it couldn't recognize them in explorer!. Heres what i have tried and other info:i have installed the latest chipset drivers. Tried removing all usb devices and rebooting. Tried using other usb flash sticks all other usb devices do work, just mass storage that doesn't.computer info:
Windows xp pro sp2
Dell dimension 4600

I can access the drive only through disk manager. I think its got something to do with windows not automatically assigning a drive letter on startup.

Error Message "there Is No Disk In The Drive"

My computer persistently displays this error message saying "windows - no disk: there is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive. " When i look at the my computer screen it shows my floppy drive, my c drive, the unknown removable disk drive (d:), cd drives e and f, my other internal drive (g:), my external (h:), the second partition on my internal drive (i:), a dvd drive (j:), and then finally the second unknown removable disk drive (k:). I have no idea what these removable disk drives are or how they got here but i think they are causing the problem. Windows thinks there is a disk mounted but there isnt. If it helps the applications i was using at the time of when the incident first began was azureus, my dvd drive, divx player, itunes, and maybe some more random stuff. This error message pops up whenever i open multiple programs such as itunes and azureus. I could really use some help with this as it is starting to become very annoying!

Floppy Drive "disk I/o Error"

Can anyone help with a little problem i'm having with installing xp pro. Everytime i try to install from the floppies (can't boot from cdrom) i get this "disk i/o error". I have never came across this before. It isn't the floppy drive, because all other disks work. I tried formatting the floppy before using it.could there be something wrong with my boot sector?

Btw. I use powerquest's partition magic 8, and i'm getting this "bad boot signature byte" message when scanning the drive for errors!*

Usb Flash Drive Error - This Drive Needs To Be Formatted

A friend of mine recently had her usb drive come up with an error. Whenever it is accessed it throws up an error "this drive needs to be formated". So we tried running chkdsk and even tried running restoration (http://www.Snapfiles.com/get/restoration.html) which i've tried on my father's hard drive before with excellent results. This time it just throws up a "unable to recognize" error. When i try to format it, we can only format a 8mb partition (out of 512mb) and even then it says "no" to that. I used the built in windows xp. Chkdsk cannot see it, says it is in raw format (which i assume means there is no partition). My next step is to try some specialized software made for flash drive recovery. There are important files on there that the owner would very much like back (however not important enough to justify large spending of money). A free-ware option would be fantastic.

I O Error Usb Drive

I recently bought a sandisk cruzer micro 1gb flash drive. It refuses to work on my computer. I've dealt with sandisk's tech support - absolutely no help. I've lost the receipt and packaging (i just moved in to a new apartment), so i have no chance of being able to return it. Here's the scoop:

I plug it in, winxp detects it just fine and that blasted u3 software (which i've since removed) loads up. I go to copy a file.system hang. I wait. And wait. And wait. Eventually, the light on the drive goes out with my pc still holding it's ****. I unplug the drive. Screen goes blank (except for bg pic) and after a few seconds my desktop comes just as it would after a typical xp explorer crash - most of the open windows are now closed and there aren't too many icons in the tray. Here's the kicker (well, a few actually), i have a sandisk 256mb cruzer mini which works fine. I had a 1gb cruzer mini earlier this year (which i returned) which did the same thing the cruzer micro does now. I tried the thing on my gf's (who has a 2gb cruzer micro) computer and it works fine. Recently, i've been getting an error when i try to transfer files stating "the request could not be processed because of an i/o device error. " However, i am able to transfer files that are smaller than 1 mb. I've tried this plastic perturbation in fat and fat32. No luck. Just to avoid confusion, i have a 1gb sd card for my camera. Works fine. I even went out and bought one of those adapters that turns the card into a usb drive. Still works fine.amd athlon 3200+, msi mb kt6 delta series, via kt600 chipset. Bios and drivers are all most recent.

Usb Drive Full Error

So i have a brand new 8gb flash drive and when i try to copy a 4gb file to it is says disk full. When i tried copying a 7gb file it said the same. I have copied large files on it before but now i can't. I have ran the disk check/repair and formated it twice using fat32 and it still doesn't work.

Usb Pen Drive I/o Device Error

I've had an iomega 256mb pen drive for about 18 months now, and whenever i try to access it in my computer it says: the request could not be performed because of an i/o device error. I can't format the drive either. This happens on all of the 3 computers i've tried it on. I'm not worried about getting the data on it back, i've got backups of it. Anyone got any ideas on how to fix it?

Backup: Can Not Write To Disk, Disk Write Error

I was saving the backup file in quickbooks & have done this thousands of times. During the backup it said can not write to disk, disk write error. Than the error started popping up for tons of folders on the same drive. This drive is my secondary drive, not the main drive. So i restarted my computer. & Chkdsk ran so i let it do its thing. It got to step 3 & said insufficient disk space to fix the bad clusters file. Chkdsk aborted. Which did not make any sense because this drive has over 200gb open. So now the computer is running ridiculously slow & my f & g drives (same hard drive partitioned) is now not being recognized. So i tried to run chkdsk on those drives & it said the drives are raw. The drive can not be raw because it has over 250 gb of files on it. So did my hard drive crash? I have had a crash in the past, but this seems different. When i go to my computer i see local disk f & g but that is not the names they used to be called & the drives dont open if clicked on them. Luckily i have everything backed up pretty regularly on 2 other drives. However it has not been backed up for a week or two so that part sucks. Does anyone have any ideas?

Usb Flash Drive Error When Double Click To Open

I have a kingston usb flash drive and formatted it to ntfs on vista. Now my question is related to xp. Every time i plug it into a xp machine it will run the auto-play but whenever i go into my computer and try to double click it, it gives me an error saying windows cannot find g:m.exe. But if i right click and select open it will open up. I am wondering why it would be giving me an error with the double click method and not with the other one. I don't even know why it would be looking for an executable file on a usb flash drive. If anyone can give some insight please let me know.

Disk Error

Well i got my copy of vista and decided to install it with xp, for a dual os. Anyways, i partitioned my c drive (80gb) into another primary partition called "vista" (w: ), which i set to the max; 50gb. I went to install vista on the 50gb and loaded the installation in xp. I selected the 50gb partition and off it went. Apon the first reboot, vista was loading except it did not have a logo, all i could see was the loading bar. After about 3-4 mins of loading, i got a bsod. I reset the comp and when it went to check the raid array, it said one of the hdd's has a disk error. It continued to load, and i ended up getting into xp. I deleted all the vista stuff and re-merged the w: drive into the c: drive. Im still getting the disk error (which delays the raid screen for like 20 seconds) and it asks me what os to choose (even tho i deleted all my vista stuff)

What is going on?

Disk Read Error

So the other day my uncle called me to do some computer work. Setup outlook with his new e-mail and do some general house cleaning. Part of what i did was uninstall an outdated copy of symantec corporate anti-virus and installed the beta of microsoft security essentials (a day before the final version got released). Mse starts going through its first run update and scan procedure so i leave it be. The next day i get a call back, his computer won't boot into windows. It gets as far as the screen with the blue dell bar at the top passes the "pbr" check but then says "disk read error. Press crtl-alt-del to restart. "

Upon further inspection the hard drive is in some sort of seek loop. Three short seeks followed by a long one. A few moments later and it does it again. It is not making any clicks or sounds i would call unusual. I move the drive to another computer and it does the same thing, but holds xp from booting all the way. It gets past the logo screen, but hangs on the black screen between the logo and login. I ripped apart my external drive for its ide to usb adapter and while making the noise, it freezes the computer until i turn the drive off. Then xp acts like nothing happened. I should mention that the first time i plugged it in usb, the drive was recognized but windows froze before "the drive is ready to use". Now it just freezes without being recognized. Any ideas? Maybe a low-level program that would be worth trying? And since there is important data he needs, if all else fails, what is a good option for a professional data recovery company (he knows it would be $500+)? And after this, he is going to get a backup solution. The drive is a seagate 7200. 7 80gb ide.

Startup Gives A Disk Read Error

This is a problem my mom is having with her computer, so this might be slightly vague. Until today she was having no problems. However, today she turned the computer on, got the startup blurb, it went to the windows loading screen but decided to just stay on that screen with the windows loading bar just continuing on its merry way. She decided to restart the computer, the startup screen came up but then it apparently went to blue screen of death. She pressed whatever key it was and it went to another screen that said, 'disk read error - press ctrl, alt, delete to restart'. Now since i been speaking to her it just goes straight to the disk read error screen after the startup screen, no windows loading, nothing.

Disk Error : Ntldr Is Missing

For some weird reason, i'm unable to boot into any one of the windows oses on my system. The usual boot menu of ntloader just wont come up. It stubbornly says 'disk error' and 'ntldr is missing'. I booted of the xp cd and did the fixmbr thing, still the same error. I can easily boot into linux w/ its bootdisk. A few tries of fixmbr and fixboot led me nowhere. So i thought dumping the ghost image of xp, rebooted and still wouldnt work. Has my disk really gone bad? I'll give it another try later tonight. And if things show no progress at all, might reinstall then.

Disk Error Checking Tool

This has happened to me a few times on my blackberry and i am glad rim has finally addressed the issue with a recent knowledge base article. Ever gotten this error after unplugging your blackberry from your computer?

A media card has been inserted that contains errors. To correct the errors please use a disk error-checking utility on a computer. My first reaction when i got this error was "crap what about all my pictures!" Then i realized it is a simple as plugging your blackberry into your pc and running checkdisk to fix the errors. Some of you may not have realized that so i thought i would share. Plug your blackberry into a windows computer and turn on mass storage mode if it is not already turned on
Open my computer. Right-click the appropriate removable disk. Click tools, and then click check now. Select automatically fix file system errors, and then click start. Things should work just fine after that! At least it worked the last two times i got this error. Not sure if there is a way to do this on a mac but let me know! I personally think it sucks that rim cannot just include the disk checking utility on your blackberry since your only option from the device is to format it completely and lose your data

Hdd Not Found On Boot = Disk Error

I recently received a western digital 160gb, as a replacement for a broken western digital 120gb, from western digital. However on boot the hdd is sometimes not found and instead a little clicking noise can be heard, which in turn leads to the primary slave not being found and then a disk error. Usually if i simply turn it off then back on again, then it works fine however sometimes i have to do this multiple times, sometimes i have to turn it off and leave it for a few minutes and sometimes i have to open the case and push all the cables into the back of the hdd and dvdrw a bit more. To me the cables don't feel as though they've come loose and so really this is an exercise of ritual rather than anything constructive, yet it seems to do the job. Once the hdd is recognised the pc works fine and dandy but i'd like to avoid this failure as it is happening more and more. Is this an issue with the cpu, data cables, power cables, hdd, dvdrw, ram?
My system is an asus pundit w/ intel 2. 8ghz, dual 512mb ram, western digital 160gb, sony 8x dvdrw.

Error 0200: Failure Fixed Disk 0

It is hard for me to throw away things that have been working. I am the owner of two dell inspiron notebooks. One is an 1100 (2003) and the one that is currently giving me the problem is a 2500 (2002). So you can see who you are dealing with. I upgraded the memory on both machines to 1g and 512mb respectively, not that long ago and they were working fine. Then i got this brainstorm to try to teach myself ubuntu and wiped out xp on the 2500 and burned an iso image of a ubuntu version and it was working ok except i couldn't connect to the internet even via ethernet cable. Time passed and then by the time i came back to it - there was a problem that i really can't recall - i posted on some other sites and the bottom line was, i thought i needed a new hard drive. So i purchased a compatible drive (i did a fair amount of research) and got the drive about 2 months ago and just tried to get it going this morning. I replaced my hitachi 20 gb drive with a seagate momemtus 5400. 3 40gb drive. When i boot up, the initial screen does show that it recognizes my new drive (model st940815a).

Whs Insufficient Disk Space Error

Yesterday i noticed my latest shares weren't being included in a whs search but were there if i explored the shared music folder. After investigating indexing a little more i received the message on the "indexing options" pop-up "insufficient disk space to continue indexing. Search results might not be complete"

Seems i have 145, 224 items indexed and that's the limit? 98% of the indexed items are @ 4000 mp3 and flac album folders. I removed the other folders from the indexing options and turned off duplication for the music share folder but it made no change to the indexing error. The os is on a 74gb raptor but i don't believe the os partition "grows as needed" so that shouldn't be the problem. I suppose i could tell it to not index the text and pics or maybe move the folder? Is there anyway to increase the size of the index folder or another way around this?

Norton Like Software For Disk / Error Checking

I used to have norton utilities installed on my xp box, but have since gone to win7 and no longer touching norton products with a 20m pole. I did, however, really enjoy norton win doctor and their disk checker. What is comparable (free or for charge) software for win7 - that has a thorough disk/error checker, and defrag (or is win7 defrag good enough). What about a norton win-doctor-like utility? Or is that probably not needed anymore.

Disk Error Checking Utility Blackberry

I am getting an error with my new memory card when trying to access it from my blackberry.

In my media manager, the card is coming up and showing no problems. Does anyone know what i can do to get it working again?
