Windows 7: USB Volume isn't being read by Windows properly

USB Volume isn't being read by Windows properly

Hey, how's it going. I'm having a slight issue with my 16GB SanDisk Cruzer USB. A few days ago I was tinkering with it in the Disk Management because it was a linux-boot USB and I wanted to clear it out. Accidentally I mistakenly deleted the Volume from the Disk Management, now it does not want to appear whatsoever. I've tried everything that I know, reformatted using Gparted due to it not appearing in diskpart, using MiniTool Partition Wizard, etc. I've Googled for hours on hours just to fix a human-error. I know it's not my USB ports or drivers due to me being able to connect other USBs to my desktop and they appear in the Disk Management fine. Please help

Thanks! and sadly that does not help my situation, but I see that I could request a replacement (which I didn't know about). If I'm unable to fix this current USB within a week or so, I guess I'll just send it in to get replaced.

Yep, the final note on that page says so.

You may now try these:

1. Download HP USB storage Disk Storage Format Tool v2.2.3 from HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool Download It will be a single HPUSBDisk.exe file. Plug in only your faulty pen drive ( Please remove all other USB storage devices so that you do not accidentally format a wrong USB device). Right click the .exe file and run as administrator. If your pendrive shows up in it format it.

2. If not successful, try to format it with HDD Low Level Format Tool. Download Windows Executable version version that does not need to be installed. HDDGURU: HDD LLF Low Level Format Tool It will be a single HDDLLF.4.40.exe file. With only your pendrive plugged in, run it and do a low level format, which writes zeroes to all sectors. ( Take care not to select your system drive.) After the Low level format completes close the application, safely remove the pendrive, plug it in again and do a regular format.

If both the above fail, then only warranty replacement.

Sadly none of those solutions worked either, I went into the store I bought it from today and got a replacement. Thanks for the help!
