I had a similar problem on a SanDisk SD memory card. I called SanDisk and after all attempts failed, they replaced it since it had a lifetime warranty. There was nothing that could be done to fix it. You might check with Kingston to see what they can do. Hopefully you still have the receipt.

Well, that is the only way that I found. I tried many things, different OS, different programs, etc. and in the end nothing worked to allow me to fix the problem, which in my case was a file that I could not access nor delete. I looked for tools from SanDisk and did not find anything which fixed it. Kingston might have some ideas other than replacing it, but I doubt it.

Have you tried formating it?

Perhaps there is something on it that the ds does not like.

ok, i got it to work but the file is still there. It doesnt affect the way it runs or anything but it still doesnt make sense that i cannot delete it.

Well, whether it makes sense or not, that is same problem that I had. The only solution was to get it replaced, after trying many things.
