A quick format would be to pop it in, try searching for files on it and quickly pull it out But, definitely not advisable!!!


More information on the USB Thumb Drive would be appreciated, it will let us run a search to see if there are other known issues. My current OCZ Diesel 16gb Thumb Drive has never had any problems, including using it to boot up raid drivers.

Does the drive have a physical "lock" switch?

But now i have already update the information for you guys including with pictures, i hope this is information complete for you...!!!
When i tried to scan it with Microsoft Security Essentials i really got one virus... this virus's name is " PWS:Win32/Frethog.gen!H " when i then executed to remove this virus but Microsoft Security Essentials can't apply it.
