Dear friends !

I have a Flash drive (SanDisk manufacturer) of 1 GB. When I plug it in PC's usb port, PC detects this removable storage. When I open this storage, I am able to open. BUT...

When I want to copy or save some document files, it denies showing the following error message...

Cannnot Copy...<filename> The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.

When I try to format this device, it again refuses the action stating that...

Windows was unable to complete the format.

Please tell me that what is the cause of this problem. How can I remove the I/O device error. The same problem is coming even when I use different PCs. So I think the problem persists in my Flash not in the PC.
