This is a limitation of the FAT file system. In order to transfer more data to this card, you will need to remove the current data on the card and create folders on the card to copy files to. Once this is done, you should be able to transfer more data to the card. You can also reformat the card using FAT32 file system. But make sure the device you use the card with supports this file system.

There is a incompatibility between the card and the device. This can be due to the device not supporting the capacity of the card or the card uses a newer technology than the device is able to use. In some cases, there are updates to the device that allow it to read newer or larger cards. Please check with the device manufacturer or on our website to see what cards are supported with your device.

Kingston does not distribute flash media with password protection. This password was either generated by a third party program or by a cell phone. To regain access, use the third party software or the Lock Code assigned to the cell phone.

FAQ: KFC-012611-GEN-06

The X rating is a measurement of the performance of the card. It is determined by dividing the write speed of the card by 150KB/s*. To put it another way, you can determine the write speed of a card by multiplying its X rating by 150KB/s. For example:

50X = 50(multiplier) x 150KB/sec = 7.5 MB/sec

* 1 KB = 1,000 Bytes; 1 MB = 1 million Bytes.
