USB Storage Drive failed to work
Posted on 2004-11-24
I have a USB 512MB.
I've been using it for 3 months. But lately the drive was getting
"laggy". It can reads most of the time but there has been sign of
errors when trying to copy from the USB to my computer.
For the last week, I plugged it into my computer as usual and get the
This disk in drive G is not formatted.
Do you want to format it now?
Luckily there was no data in the disk so I decided to chose Yes.
Here is the following information before I press Format
Allocation unit size:
Dafault allocation size
I did not do I quick format.
The process bar ran smoothly up unto it finishes and I get this error
just before it is done.
Windows was unable to complete the format.
Is there something wrong with the USB?
Unfortunately the quarrantine was out of date so I could not get it repair.
I'm hoping there will be a special software on the Internet like
DiskChecker that I used to check my harddrive. I'm not sure whether or
not this software would work to fix my USB.
Is there anyway to fix the USB?
I really need it for my work.
Please reply with your solutions as soon as possible.
Tips will be $30 for researcher who can bring up a solution to fix
this error for the USB and get it to work normally again.
I have just tried to use the Quick Format and received the following error:
The disk is write protected.
There is no switch that I can see just like those on the floppy disk
to use to lock-unlock my USB. There is nothing but a label
USB 2.0 FLASHDRIVE 512MB
There is only that and a small hole for the necklace and a light.
