Windows 7: Flash Drive Not Recognized

Flash Drive Not Recognized

I installed the Chrome OS IMG file on my flash drive and tried to boot from it, but it turns out my flash drive is now un-recognizable. I tried assigning a different drive letter in computer management, but it doesn't show up there. Sometimes it will show up and Windows will say that I need to format it, but the format always fails. Other flash drives are recognized by my computer. I am using a Lexar Jump Drive, but I'm not sure what model it is. Thanks for the help!

Try your flash drive on another pc and another OS. If it works or not follow clean disk command.

Memorex Flash Drive NOT recognized.
I just installed Windows 7 and it is not recognizing my flash drive. I suspect part of the problem is the U3 Launchpad. When I located a drive in Explorer, I tried to access it but it said u3dapi10.dll is missing and to re-install it. I believe that came from the U3 software on the flash drive,...
