I have a 32GB kingston data travler memory stick and since my PC froze up on my yesterday, I just pulled out the memory stick. Well, since then, the PC doesn't recogonize the drive anymore, when I plug in my memory stick, I get the following message "you need to format the disk in drive F: before you can use it.
When I select format disk, I get the following error "windows can't format F, check to see that the disk and drive are connected properly, make sure that the disk is not read only and try again."
Then when I try to go to disk management to format it there, it won't even give me the option to format it, it doesn't see it there.
Then when I try to format it in the cmd prompt, I get the following error message:
"error in IOCTL call"
Does anyone know what I can do to format it? I would prefer to get my data first if possible, so I don't want to format it, but if I have no choice, that is my last option, but it looks like I can't even do that.
