Could you post a website showing your 256 GB flash stick?

Could you also post a picture like this with your flash stick plugged in?
This tutorial by Golden will show you how to post the picture.

Take a read here. If your flash drive is working properly these should work for a format.

"i have a 256g memory stick that windows cant format" This is a bland statement devoid of any crucial information.. Mention the make/manufacturer and model No. Should that be difficult?

When, from where and what price did you buy it?( Note: There are three-in-one for you to answer. )

Does it have a manufacturer's warranty or you simply bought it since the large 256GB came at an unbelievably low price on the footpath? ( One or one. )

All this info is necessary to know whether you had bought a fake drive.

You used Chip Genius. Did you see a line like the one in the screenshot below showing the vendor/ model number of the chip and itís true capacity?
