Question about Fuji (MAP3367NP) 36.7 GB Hard Drive
Hi, I have 2 pen drives. One is 1GB kingston data traveler and other is 32GB kingston data traveler. I am using Windows Vista Ultimate O/s. Before using vista I used windows xp as O/s. at that time one day mine 1GB usb become write protected and it refused to format. I surf on net and at Fixya I got a solution. it was a software. i download it. I have insert the usb and run the software, This software format my usb fullly and it is functioning well now. then I changed my O/s to vista but before formatting of my pc i forgot to save the software and it was formatted too. now my 1GB datatraveler is working well but my 32GB data traveler is creating problem. When i tried to format it it shows a message
"Windows was unable to format the disk."
Now i surf the net again but i forgot the site link where the software is available to download and also not found that solution which shows the link of that software. i can't understand how can i format my pendrive.
kindly help me to format it, and if possible pls send the link of that software.
Thanks in advance.
I know about this problem and the solution.
First, you should know your pen drive is infected with a virus. You can't usually repair it, you'lll just have to format it, and I'm getting to that.
Now, Before you format the pen drive, you might want to preserve some files in the drive?
Instead of trying to view the pen drive by double clicking or right click=>open TYPE the ASSOCIATED DRIVE LETTER at the RUN DIALOG BOX (start=>run)
If your pen drive is assigned to drive E:
Type "E:" (without quotes) and hit enter.
It should open.
Now you will probably see some weired .exe file, probably named fun.exe. That's the virus. You just cant delete it. BUT you can copy the rest of the imprtant files to your hard drive.
type "cmd" (without qoutes) and hit enter
type "format/x E:" (without qoutes and mind your spellings and spacing. REPLACE "E:" with the associated drive letter of the pen drive)
Hope my info fixes your problem,
Thanx for using fixya.

Hi even i have the same problem
cause: because i have write caching enabled in my sys. and i did not safely remove my pen drive.
what happens??: the data format of my pendrive is changed from fat32 into raw data...
how can i solve this?? By using your windows xp cd and boot your system through your cd rom...
now format your pendrive listed in the available disks.. do not install anything... thats it.. pen drive fresh as new...
