    Kingston Datatraveler 100 G2 4GB recognized as Disk Drive


    I have tried almost everything with this drive but it still wont format, let me change the drive letter, change the name, or open it. Anyone have any idea whats wrong? i may have put an os on it with Rufus but not sure.

    Try the HP USB Key Format Utility, portable version 2.2.3
    That has worked on one of my Kingston G3 USB key drives when others just would not. I had messed about with it in a smart TV.
