Windows 7: USB Flash Drive corrupted

USB Flash Drive corrupted

Good Day

I have a 64GB USB flash Drive (Transcend), and when copying files to it, for example movie files (AVI, MP4, etc), not all the files are copied (although it takes up all the space of the copied files), and the files that did copy successfully, cannot be rendered and are corrupted.

I formatted my drive fully (not quick format) a couple of times, and I also did a chkdsk /f /r on it, but the data on it is still corrupted(the drive shows up fine in windows as an exFAT formatted drive).

Should I throw the USB flash drive away, or is there a way to save it?

Thank you

Try formatting the drive again with NTFS format. See it that works.

"Windows was unable to complete the format" - Says Windows...?

Or you might try formatting the usb drive using command prompt.
Follow this tutorial: Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

Be Careful!!

Thank you jumanji, but the JetFlash tool doesn't even pick it up, even after a format. I trying one last thing now: Download H2testw 1.4 Free - Check your USB for errors with this tool - Softpedia
