I found the CD that came with the flash drive, and installed the 'format disk utility'. The program seems to have formatted the disk, however, I still cannot open it.
It's called 'Flash Disk Utility', and the manufacturer is Wistron Corp.
I have shown your problem in my lab, they said "whats the point in having a usb pen drive??? thats one of the stupiest inventions ive heard of along with the pen mp3 player and pen radio"
sorry no offence, that was for me: However try thiese solution:
1. Try it in another computer
2. Try to partition it
3. Most likely if you can't format it on other computers then the drive is in fact bad. Also make sure that you close all files and folders that are contained on your USB drive before you unplug it or you'll corrupt it.
4.If nothing works try this FINAL...get a magnet, although USB use light to write data to the drive, magnet will either wipe out disk
IF SO happened.... YOUR USB will be working
IF NOT IT IS DEAD anyways,
PS: Don't forget the magnet.
