I've seen some flash drive players through a boombox... where you stick the flash drive and it plays the music files in it. i was looking for something like that but instead of boom boxes , i could change the output or speaker device to use... for example id like a portable speaker or a headphone.

I have a 16 gigabyte flash drive that's relatively empty (13.7GB free space), and I was trying to put a 5 gigabyte .ISO file onto it. However, when I try to copy the file to the flash drive, I get an error saying there is not enough space to put the file on the flash drive. I know this is not true because I have over 13 gigs of free space. Is there any reason for this weird error and is there any fix? This is kinda important.

I have a 6 month old Kingston DataTraveler 32Gb USB drive which is suddenly not being recognized in my iMac Finder. There has been no abuse whatsoever to the drive, and the best the Kingston tech people can say is that it might me the 'controller' since the green activity light comes on sporadically. I've been quoted $hundreds to rescue my data. Kingston (kindly) will replace it for free. Help, Mileman

I have an 8GB Kingston Data Traveler G3 that my computer, operating on windows 7,refuses to recognize. The Auto-play option doesn't start when it is plugged in nor does it show up in any of the available drives in My Computer. I've tried to assign it a new drive letter through Disk Management but it doesn't show up there either. Can anyone explain what might be the problem and how i can fix it? Thanks.

I recently got into taking apart old computers that no longer work (and by no longer work I mean really screwed up and not worth keeping) and see what I can salvage. I found this 80 gigabyte hard drive from a Windows Desktop computer, and i was wondering how i could wipe it without having to put it back in the computer, because it's all in pieces at the moment. If they uploaded correctly, i have pictures of the hard drive and all of it's info. Also, could some tell me the official name of it please? Thanks. :D

Does anybody know if/where I can find information on how to design and build my own thumb drive? All I have been able to find are companies that let you design your own case. I can do that myself but I want to learn how to assemble the circuitry.

I'm sure anyone familliar with U3 knows it brings up a menu, my regular flash drive works, because i can skip installing the software, but my U3 won't, and i can't acces it because of this. I have tried almost all of the admin hacks, is there another way to do it?

I recently (2 hours ago) made a case for USB drive because the case "broke" off. Anyway, my main USB ports on the front are on the bottom, with a stiff port cover over them. This makes it virtually impossible to use my USB drive now, as I cannot fit it in the tight space. So I want to use one of my 4 ports on the back. My problem is that when I plug the USB drive in, it just will not recognize it. I tried it it in my mouse port, keyboard port, everything. I tried it with another USB drive to make sure I just didn't ruin my first one; it wouldn't recognize it either. Maybe I'm missing something, or being ignorant, but I can't seem to figure out why it won't recognize it, and what can be done about it. Is there some menu like in the Control Panel (though I checked) that enables the ports, or what? I really to have to go case-less. Thanks! Edit - I'm running Windows XP Home.

If I had like 10 thumb drives could I connect them all as one drive somehow? I know you can create a usb hub and connect many that way, but when you connect the hub to a pc it sees many drives and not one.

Well, I was rummaging through an old computer, and met up with Mr. Hard Drive, and his evil plot of frustration for all, Is there any way I can run the motor in the drive to spin the discs? I have included the wires running out of the drive.

The premise- The school gave us USB flash drives that have special software in them as a test drive. The software will automatically open when plugged into a computer. I want to transfer all the files in that drive to an Ativia flash drive for 2 reasons: 1- The Ativia drive has more memory2- I will have to give the flash drive back later onI have tried simply dragging and dropping all the files, but this does not work. One thing I have noticed is that the USB drive the school gave us was read as 2 separate drives: Drives J and K. That should help some. In case you are wondering, the flash drives the school gave us are the blue and green bracelets in that picture.Thanks for your help!

Here's a nice flash drive mod which seems to be accomplished by sticking ye olde standard flash drive inside a lot of other metal bits. OK, that sounds simple, but the results are quite nice. Check the link below for lots of build shots.Link via bbgadgets

I have a flash drive with some talking books on it. How do I download it to my music so I can get it to i-tunes.
First my drive did not open so I repaired it using the paperclip method BUT did not turn off the PC. Now every time I boot up, the drive makes a repetitive jerking sound and I have to push in the already closed drive to make the noise stop and enable the PC to boot. IS there something I can do to fix it? Tks

I used to have a short code block that would set the drive letter that it's in, to a variable. If I had the batch file on my flash drive (G:), it would set:G:\If I had the file on my desktop, it would set:C:\Does any one understand what I'm talking about? For the life of me, I can't remember that script...
