Q: using a memory stick

Will this tactic work?
If I transfer all my harddrive to a memory stick (the size is 4 Gigabytes) can I then plug it into a PC with Norton installed and scan it that way?
I ask because I cannot scan my pc at the moment because a virus(or a trojan or I know not what) is effectively blocking my internet access .
Again would Norton Antivirus be up to the task as someone (my ISP) said they thought it might be a trojan to be redirecting my outgoing traffic in the way that it is.

Preferred Solution: using a memory stick

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hi geordief

it might take a while depending on the size of your hard drive but this should work also try spybot search and destroy in google that should also be able to help.

Completely new to this so apologies if barking up the wrong tree .... !

Rather than buying a 32 gb memory stick to upload some important jpg pictures into for safety's sake, I'm wondering if it's possible to upload and store them in a spare and unused 32gb memory card that I've got lying around instead ? Equally if it's then possible to download them safely later on ?


A:Possible to save to a memory card rather than a memory stick ?

Short answer is Yes. An SD card is very similar to a flash drive as far as the technology goes and can be used like an SD card for storing files. I would format it Fat32. And you can download (Copy) the files from the card at any time.

I am running Windows XP in a Compaq Presario, with CD reader and CD/DVD burner.
My question: How do I get a DVD(with photos and sound) onto a Flash Memory stick or an SD card??

A:Transfer DVD to Memory Stick or Memory card

Simplest method:

Insert the Disc with photos and sound (close any autorun)
Go to My Computer
Right Click on the CD/DVD drive (with your photos and sound in) and select open
Click on Edit (in Toolbar) then Select all
Click on Edit (in Toolbar again) and select copy

Close the folder

Insert your Flash Memory stick and select Open folder to view the files
Click on Edit (in Toolbar again) and select paste

All done Copy and paste (some say I'm good at this !)

What is the difference between a USB flash drive and a USB pen drive? There is a difference in price but that is all i can work out at the moment. Please can you help.

A:Memory stick

Hi helenb102,

Welcome to TSG!

According to when I searched for usb flash drive, a USB flash drive and USB pen drive are one and the same:
Known By Many Names

Also known as a "flash drive," "pen drive," "keychain drive," "key drive," "USB key," "USB stick" and "memory key," ...

I already knew that, but wondered if indeed there actually was some difference - so, none!

They are sold with or without bootable software (Windows) depending on mfg. I have bought 512kb, 2GB and 4GB USB flash drives. SanDisk cruzer (512KB, 2GB, 4GB) comes with Windows compatible FAT16 (I think) bootable software. On a PNY Technologies (2GB) USB flash drive which does not come with any bootable software, I partitioned and laid in a compatible file system for Linux Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon which has the property (now) of persistent storage, so that any changes I install to it are not lost after I boot it up and install the changes - i.e. between reboots from it onto my desktop from it.

I have a USB1.1 memory stick that is a few years old. It has worked faithfully up until now. Yesterday when I insert it into a USB port, the computer (XP) does not detect it. There is no error message, there is no yellow question mark in the Device Manager. It does not appear on in My Computer, it doesn't work on another computer (Vista) and I have another USB Memory stick that does work with the computer so I am guessing that there is problem with the older stick.

Is there anything I can do to access the data on the stick and back it up before I replace it?

I have a 4gb memory stick that I have used many times to install Linux etc on old laptops etc. Now that I want to use that stick to copy off some files from Win 7, I notice that Win 7 suggests its capacity is only 1gb.

I think I have seen this kind of thing happen before but cant remember how I resolved it.

Anyone got ideas on how to kick-start W7 into recognising its full capacity ?

A:Memory stick

Memory modules, if the correct size, and type, should work out of the box.
Be sure you have the right stuff by going to and entering your computer brand and model, or the motherboard brand and model... for a list of what should work.
Then if you install it correctly so that it is firmly seated, the motherboard BIOS and Windows should detect it and accept it automatically.

Long story short: My new computer that had Vista on it originally crashed two weeks ago. I downgraded to XP. Now the internet doesn't work. My Network Drivers are missing.

So I hooked up my old computer (Windows ME) I upgraded it to XP. I got onto the HP website and the tech sent me 3 drivers: chipset, sound, and modem.

The CD burner on the old computer won't work. So I couldn't burn the drivers onto a cd and transfer.

I bought a USB Memory Stick. The computer recognized it, installed it. But it's not under 'My Computer'.

I went into Admin Tools and tried adding a new drive. It wouldn't work/I may not have done it right.

Try reinstalling the USB drivers or your motherboard chipset drivers.

Just a casual question. I have three memory sticks, equal in capacity, which are used for transmitting files across to other computer and daily backups. The computer has a hard disk with no partitions and the usual CD/DVD-ROM drive.

Why, when I insert two of the memory sticks are they each recognised as the E drive, whilst the third memory stick is always recognised as the F drive. The memory sticks are used one at a time.

I have used my memory stick before to look at my pictures and copy to DVD. Now, all of sudden, it is telling me when I put the stick in, and try to open to insert the memory stick, the memory stick is blinking, like it is being read. I checked the profile, the auto play said music, I tried to change to photo would not change,the auto play thing keeps appearing like it is playing something. I am so frustrated. Get this where I bought this computer, their tech support is off until 1/5. Can you imagine what their phones will be like then, with all of Xmas stuff they probably sold. Does anyone have any ideas.

Everytime i try an install,there seems to be missing files.
Any ideas ??
Many Thanks

A:Memory Stick

No ideas. I've often transferred WinZip via USB drive-never had any problem. Are you sure you're saving the downloaded file to the USB drive-if you try copying your installed version of WinZip you probably won't get it all. Other than that the only idea I have is that you have a problem with your download-have you tried re-downloading it? Maybe from a different PC?

Is it possible to turn a usb stick in to ram and then use that stick for a certain program

A:can i use a USB stick for dedicated memory

I'm not an expert in anything.

I don't believe it's possible to designate which memory modules a program should use. It would be kinda like telling a program, "OK, go ahead and use the memory in slots A and C but totally disregard the memory that's available in slots B and D."

It is possible to use a USB flash drive or memory card to speed up a computer. It's called ReadyBoost. But even that has limitations based on how much RAM is already installed in the computer.

Hi guys

In older versions of Windows one had to ask nicely before unplugging a memory stick.

This doesn't seem to be the case with W7 - or has the function moved? Currently I'm simply unplugging it when I've finished but I thought I'd best find out if I'm not doing it properly!

A:Removing a USB memory stick

I still have the "safely remove hardware and eject media" icon and use it when I remove USB memory sticks.

You may just be lucky. At some point there can be a corruption in the Windows status for the drive and at that point you will have uninstall it in the Device manager, restart Windows and start over to get it working.

SpecTek 128mb Memory Stick.

I have tried before to put them both in so they would upgrade my memory.

It seemed that only one of them worked but i dont think they would work properly because my computer sometimes had problems.

Is there a way i can use them to work ok and maybe find out which doesnt work and which does?

Im running Windows 98se with a Pentium 3.

Hope i can get help as my computer needs memory.

I recently purchased a usb memory stick. Every time i transfer files to it they cannot be opened. If i unplug the memory stick and plug it back in again i get a message saying the memory stick needs to be formatted.Ive formatted it with FAT, FAT32 and NTFS, but the same thing happens.
Is there anything i can do to resolve this problem?

I installed and formatted a Maxell 32 GB USB memory stick in my Dell computer which has a Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit operating system. Saved many photos on it, and then removed it. Today I re-inserted it, and the computer wouldn't read it: it advised I must format the stick before it could be used. Knowing full well I was about to wipe the thing clean, I did a "Format" operation, and it is now re-formatted to 1 MB.

Any ideas about how I can restore the thing to 32 GB capacity?

Does memorysticks suport only Fat32 file system?It is posible to format to Ntfs?

A:Memory stick problems

Nearly all support FAT32. It is possible to format some brands and models with NTFS, but I cannot think of any possible reasons why you would want to, or why this could be necessary... NTFS is better for complex file structure and security, but FAT32 works better with less memory, and is more reliable as a simple system.
Tell us what you have in mind, and why.

W Office or Something memory using Privacy stick that has puzzled me but is probably common knowledge to people here If I have a memory stick containing private Windows doc and jpeg photos and plug it into someone else's pc then open it and faff about with those files without seemingly connecting to the 'host' pc in any way will some of the contents of the stick be left behind on the 'host' pc after properly Privacy using memory stick disconnecting and removing it In normal use Picasa seems voracious to me it gobbles up and loads my photos into its memory when all I want to do is to perhaps straighten a picture It then leaves little files that I discover later If whilst on the 'host' pc I voluntarily used it to work on a private file on the memory stick would it gobble my private files photos from the stick and download them onto the 'host' pc If I opened a photo and the 'host' pc immediately used Picasa to open it if that is possible would these private photos be left on the 'host' pc Thanks for any replies

A:Privacy using memory stick

Hello habb,

Yes, Windows and Picasa will keep some history of recent opened files.
Windows will also keep a small copy of the photo of the thumbnail in a folder, picasa does too '.picasa', but in the folder of the currently opened image.

Fortunantly the program 'CCleaner' can cleanup the recent history of opened files:
CCleaner - Delete Junk Files
Becareful checking random things in Ccleaner, you could easily remove saved passwords with it.

Good luck ^^.

USB flash drives are high failure items. Did you see if the manufacture has a web site. If the manufacturer is known, they will have USB flash drive setup tools.
If not, try some of the biggies like San Disk, Corsair, Kingston, Memorex setup or reformat drives.
Also, try formatting the drive in another computer.

A:USB Memory Stick not working

A USB pen-drive, if working properly, should register with Windows almost instantaneously with no discernable delay in response. The fact that yours is taking a while to respond is a sure sign that it's faulty and needs replacing. It's mainly for this reason that you should never use a pen-drive for backup purposes - they are too volatile & unreliable.

A:Solved: Memory Stick Help

They will slow down the new 333Mhz RAM to 266Mhz which will result in a performance decrease. In some case the 266Mhz RAM might be run at 333MNhz but this might cause instability. As for compatibility, some brands and models of RAM are not compatible with some motherboards; some manufacturers list some compatible RAM and some incompatible RAM on their sites. Having 1024 MB of RAM instead on 512 MB may help in some areas but not for normal use.

Yes you should be able to do that. You just save the file to the USB pen drive, then put it in the old laptop and run it from there.

A:Memory Stick problems

When you back up nightly, do not backup to a thumb drive. Back up to an external hard drive, or at least that is my advice. I would use something like Acronis to have it auto back up your stuff you can rest worry free. On the mac, if you ever decide to upgrade to Leopard, Time Machine works amazingly well. I have had to use it and it is amazing.
You can try something like that to get your data back. I would buy the usb Cruzer Titanium beacuse you said that you are using it a lot and carrying it around, the Cruzer is as tough as nails!

Hey all...My HP pavilion zv6000 laptop will not load up the screen at the welcome boot up...I took out the memory stick but the computer seems to run slower and this time the screen appears...Would a bad memory stick not allow me to view the screen? or could it possibly be a faulty motherboard? is there any way that i can test the memory? thank you

A:Memory Stick Gone Bad? No Screen

Yes a bad memory stick can easily cause that. I would try cleaning it with a soft cloth and isopropyl alcohol and placing it back.... is the best memory test. You make a cd or floppy, boot to it and run at least 4 complete tests of 8 passes and if you get one error, then run it with only 1 stick each time to isolate the problem stick.

I just wondered what this autorun file was and if it's this which could be setting off my teachers firewall or antivirus to detect a trojan. I tried deleting the autorun file, everything was fine, and worked properly, but it came back. Any ideas?? Thanks

There is a website out there that you can upload files to to scan for virri.

It's great for false-positives.

You can always open up the autorun in notepad and see if it isnt pointing to something naughty
