Hi Experts,

I bought this Flash USB SAMSUNG device (compatible to USB 1.0/1.1) that when I push into my Laptop it is detected, but I am unable to save data into it.

When I try to format it gives me an error that windows was unable to complete the format.

Can you help. Note I am using winxp

Regards,

Christian

I have a suspicion that the chip is damaged. The USB I think might have a 3 to six months warranty . Take to to yur dealer and tell him your problem and ask for a replacement. Then check the new device then and there itself and then only buy it.
hope this solves your query.
