Hmm so I did the clean all command, tried formatting again, still didn't work. Then I tried converting it again from the command prompt and i received a:

Date error <cyclic redundancy check>.
Unable to notify other components that this volume has changed.

That does not sound good. You may have a bum USB flash drive. Does it work properly formatted as FAT32?

Yea that's the weird thing..it works perfectly fine under the fat32 format. However, my only reason for buying the flash drive was to use it as an additional hard drive for my xbox. Turns out the xbox doesn't recognize fat32 formatted flash drives. Haha I give up.

But yea thank you very much Brink for taking the time to answer my questions and doing everything you could to help me out.

What's the size, model, and brand of your USB stick?

This way we can see if others are seeing the same thing with that particular one.

While you have it plugged in, you might check in Device Manager under "Disk drives" to see if it may list the brand and model for you there.

Hi, i always use Smartdisk from Verbatim. works on all my sticks.

more accurate as to which brand it is.

Verbatim | USB Flash Drive, Recordable DVDs, Rewritable CD - Storage Media, Recordable Media

i then format to ntfs ( if needed )with Acronis DD.

cheers.

Hi. I think I messed up, bigtime.

I tried to convert my 1TB external Hard drive by following the steps mentioned, it said "failed, hard drive not clean" - So I found the other steps you've posted, which would clean it.

It succeeded, and it said it was clean, however, a problem arose. External hard drive disappeared, and I can't find it, tried running it from run.exe, unplugged it from computer and power supply. Still nothing.

At a loss, as I kinda want my external hdd FAT32 turned into ntfs, so I can use the 1TB I've paid for.

Whatever you can to help me get the external hard drive 'back' from wherever it went, and so it's changed into ntfs will be greatly appreciated.

Thank in advance,
Pharaun

*edited in*

I found solution myself, after a while =) - Sorry for bothering.
