Flash Voyager 2GB does not work under XP but is readable under Vista


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have the following problem. A Flash Voyager 2 GB USB stick, generally used under Windows XP, is not readable under Windows XP (tested on different PCs) but can be read under Vista. Under XP a drive letter is assigned, but when trying to open the directory structure the system says that the drive has to be formatted. If I put the stick in my Vista system I can read from it.


Trying to format the stick under XP (context menu) does result in an error "write protected" (there is no hold button or something like that on the stick). So what should I do to get the stick runing again under XP?


Any help is appreciated.


Thanks, Sven

Please try to format the drive from a command prompt with this syntax:

Format (X:) /FS:FAT32 /U (X=the drive letter assigned to the Flash Voyager)

If you still have problems we can get it or them replaced, please use the RMA request found in TSXpress or follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!
