Hello friends, i have one Transcend JF v30/2GB Pen Drive. But when i insert Pendrive then i can't access that. It show the error for fromat the drive. Then i go for do that. Then it display error...

This might happen due to an error or corrupted MBR, which is the sector that allow you pen to be readable and the PC might not recognize the system file being used.
I would try to connect it to another PC with a different Operating system and format it from there.

Pendrive is not working

ic, maybe the usb port of your friend's pc is defective which may cause your pen drive to malfunction, probably a shorted usb port. or just maybe your pendrive was dropped by your friend which damage the drive, it happened to me too before.
