OK. If you right-click inside the F: rectangle, is there an option called Initialise disk or similar?

Or try and click the area to the left that says Disk 2.

well, as you can see - nothing like that in there. even when i clicked on properties, it shows zeroes in full or empty, but by color it appears as full...

have i really killed the disc with the killdisc?

Mmmm. OK, one last attempt. Please try the following in a cmd window again: (note : we are using clean all instead of clean)

diskpart
list disk


(make sure the 60GB is still disk 2)

select disk 2

(make sure disk 2 has been selected)

attributes disk clear readonly
clean
all

Now check to see if the USB is empty.

No worries. If that doesn't work, then I think that its likely that the firmware of the USB is not allowing us access, so there is nothing we can do. Only the manufacturer can fix that
