Summary: I tried this drive on my Windows 7 desktop & laptop, it did not work with either. It would automatically detect the drive, attempt to install it & conclude that the drive was unknown. I search the Transcend site for a driver/software that could help the OS recognize the drive, but there was nothing. So far, complete waste of money.
Summary: This drive seems to require special drivers to work with Windows. I don't know what else could be the cause of constant "write protection" errors. I've tried all the solutions suggested online, including the mFormat utility that wipes all data from the drive, and I still can't save anything to it. Their support site is useless. It's tedious to browse through the documentation, and requesting support requires filling out a form with dozens of irrelevant fields.
Summary: Complete junk... Lost 3.6 gigs of data... Transcend website has recovery tool, but they warn you to backup your data as the tool reformats the drive.... What kind of recovery tool is that???? The idea is to recover the lost data, but these highschool dropout engineers at Transcend want to reformat my drive.... 1st and LAST transcend product I ever buy!!!!
