Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive

1 Answer

Cannot be formatted

I reinstalled my os after a rootkit virus. I may have had the flash drive in the usb port when I did this, not sure. Anyway, I cannot access files on flash drive and pc tells me to format the removeable drive first before it can be accessed/used. So, I'm assuming my data got wiped/corrupted. I tried to format, but I'm not able to.

Thanks.

Formating remove virus


first off you have a choice you can either run virus scan to attempt to remove it from with in safe mode

format the HDD assuming it isn't your primary OS drive

or reinstall the whole OS

we will start with safe mode

so whilst the pc is still in start up (POST) rapidly press f8
this will take you through to a start up menu choose safe mode at the top.

once booted up log in and run antivirus software such as bitdefender/avast/avg and others. I recommend avast (personal preference) if nothing Is found look for more in depth for a better anti virus program.

formatting will technically remove a virus from a HDD but if you format your OS your screwed and it is unlikely that a virus will install itself to your second drive so ignore this. (don't even attempt to format)

this is a last resort if you cant solve it.
borrow or create a live cd/dvd/usb OS boot the computer into this and then install the OS if you are using windows, use your recovery disk that no one makes and if you didn't make one contact your laptop/PC manufacturer as they should have one for a fee

I just purchased a StoreJet 2M 320 GB drive. I would like to format it for use with my iMac. The MAC software doesn't seem to have a solution. How do I format the drive?


When the flash memoryUSB hard drive device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restoreit by reformatting it using a computer with Windows OS. Insert the flash or USB hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - AdministrativeTools - Computer Management - Disk Management. Then right click on Disk 1removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted itwill indicate that it is Healthy. You need to format the flash or external drive. Format thedrive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchangedbetween MACs and PCs also between XP/Vista and earlier versions of Windows).

PC is not detecting my Cruzer micro pendrive but


I have experienced this type of problem before. But what I did was to install an Avira Anti-virus on a system using windows xp and eventually it did open.

So you can try it as well or insert your flash into any another system that had a strong anti-virus which can enable you scan/format the drive.

Best of Luck

When I put my DaneElec 4GB USB Drive into my USB port, nothing happens. We have Vista.


Do other USB devices work when you plug them in the USB port?
If they don't then you have a faulty USB port otherwise the DaneElec is faulty or needs formatting.

Sometimes when a flash memory stick fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

When the flash memory device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Health

I have an 8G Imation flash uSB. It has worked fine till recently but when I insert into port now it shows the files with hieroglyphic names and says it can't open them. Is there something I can do? Thanks...


i think you can defrag a usb drive, if it shows on your 'my computer' list of removable drives- you might try this- you can also run an anti-virus check on it, if you have an anti-virus prog. if that don't work, and the data is stored on your hd, then try re-formatting it.
if that don't work, toss it, and get a new usb flash drive!
good luck!

USB external hard drive does not show up on OS X desktop


You need to be sure that it is formatted as a FAT32 drive and not as a NTFS. When you are in Vista right click on the drive icon and click on properties. You will see NFTS or FAT32 under file system. Your drive must be FAT32 to be recognized by a Mac. Iomega.com has a FAT32 formatting software that you can download for free on your Vista PC and re-format the drive as a FAT32 drive.
