Windows 7: USB Problem. Need HELP BADLY.

Your stick may only support FAT32 as some do. With logical nothing can boot the stick. You might have had it bootsected (enabled to boot) somehow but Clean All wipes that out.

OMG! the problem is till there..is there any other methods or options? when I copy those *.msi, *.exe, and *.rar to the stick, same problem, files are either corrupted or missing.

Then I'd replace the stick as it's clearly bad. I use an 8gb Kingston Data Traveler for the past 5 years without a hitch (carrying it in a baggie in my pocket). In that time the price has dropped by half on buy.com.

well. thanks for your time helping me out, but as what I said on my first post, It got replaced with a new one using the warranty. So I'm thinking if there is some other problem that is causing this.

In that case I'd use their Tech Support to find the problem, or replace it until it works.

Sorry but this is apparently very rare or someone would have jumped. I offered the wipe option because it's what I do when bootsecting corrupts my stick on occasion.

sad to say, tech supports on USB sticks are not offered here on our country, they will just replace and replace and replace ^_^ anyway..I guess there's no solution for this. I even tried other USBs and find no problems copying my files.

I wonder if you can find an app that will format it NTFS instead of FAT32 to check the difference.

I'd use free Partition Wizard - installs in seconds.

While you're at it check the file system (once partitioned) and run a HD Surface scan.

If NTFS Logical is available, try it.

Hi there, I just formatted the stick using the Partition Wizard you gave me into NTFS, the stick doesn't performs well, very slow. also run an HD surface scan and found 0 errors, It also passes the HD Tune Pro Test and found 0 errors on the drive. I think it's not on my USB, it's on something that I don't know.
