Dead USB after formating

Hello, i format my USB (DataTravelerSE9, 16gb), after formating i started to transfer some files from computer to USB. Suddenly it stop so i cancel copying. On USB were some folder i didnt copy so i try to delite it but it cant be delited. After that i pull out and put it back. USB is showed as RAW and i cant use it so i format it again. After formating windows cant recognize it. Only way to see its plugged is in Disc Managment as "Disc 1" (in attachment). So what to do? How to fix it so it can work again?

Hello Juuki,

You might see if using the Clean (not "clean all") command may help the USB flash drive by wiping it clean. Afterwards, see if you are able to create a new primary partition on it.

After i do that i got this: Virtual Disk Service error: There is no media in the device.
So i cant create new partition.

That's not good. A "No Media" status usually means it's dead.

Hi Juuki, it can be that the firmware (the software inside the usb) has been corrupted, you can search for the firmware of the usb on the manufacturing site and install it again. I had the same issue with corsair gtr where it showed no media. Then finally after months i found the firmware for it .. and when i installed it the usb worked just fine.

Hope this helps.

PS I'll try to look for ur firmware myself.
