Mathewss, have you tried other USB drives in the computer and have you tried that USB in other computers? If not, please try it. USB drives do go bad. I would like to try to determine if the problem is with the USB drive or the USB controllers/drivers on your computer. Also, could you right click on computer, select manage, in the left column select device manager. The last entry should be USB controllers. Expand that and see if there are any yellow icons or exclamation marks on any of the entries.

In post #6 you said you went through the low-level format. Did you do it as in the steps below? Open command prompt as Admin, type cmd in to Start/Search, right cmd.exe, select Run as Administrator.

yes I did do exactly as you did. just got an error at the clean step of the process.. I tried the flash drive in another computer and also tried formatting it on another computer. I have the same exact problems with the other computer, the other computer is windows xp though not windows 7, I don't think that would make much of difference though. I also tried different ports on the same computer, still the same problem.. I honestly believe now that it is the flash drive that has gone bad. I still have a 5 year warranty on the flash drive and I just got it like last year so I think I'm just gonna use that and get it replaced. Just worried about costs of shipping or something, don't know if they would charge me for shipping and handling or not, if so I'll just probably end up getting a new flash drive. No big deal really one that isn't working only cost like $20 I kind of want a portable hard drive instead anyways so I have a lot more memory.

Anyways thanks for trying to help. Greatly appreciated, I'll make sure to come back whenever I need help with any other computer problems. Great Forum you have.

Good to hear, as essenbe said, USB drives do fail and yours apparently did. I suspect you'd have to pay shipping to get it replaced with almost anyone.
Yes, come back anytime or contribute help yourself.

I think you should RMA it too. But, just to see, try running diskpart this way, just to see if it will work.

thnx for the advice. I'll have to try that when I get the windows 7 computer back because this windows xp computer won't even read the flash drive for some reason. when I type "list disk" only the hard drive shows up on this computer. The windows 7 computer is my sisters, planing on getting me one soon but my sis is at college I'll just try this next time she comes home. thnx again though.

Hello,

I was following the whole discussion because I have the same issue with my USB Flash Disk.
I would like to reply to the last advice from essenbe.

It is not working for me.
