I have tried the "Low Level Format" utility on PNY's product support web page to no avail. I would like to be able to retrieve important information that I have stored on this device if possible. thnx in advance. Bill Tennant

1. restart the computer in safe mode
2. attempt to format ( do not use the flash utilities to do this ) use windows.

I suspect that windows is preventing you from formating the drive.
thats why I'm recommending that you format the drive in safemode
