Go ahead, unless you have things you want to keep on your flash drive, I'm guessing this is a new one...go ahead and format so your computer can use it

Just format your flash drive! Before you start formatting your flash drive, transfer all data from your flash drive 'cause when you format your flash drive, it will erase all the data. After you have formatted the flash drive, then you can transfer back the data to your flash drive.

SOURCE: My flash drive will not

Sounds like the flash drive or your USB port is having problems. I would try the flash drive on a friend's computer . If it does the same , then it is the flash drive. If it works on your friend's computer, then it's the USB ports on your PC. If it is your PC, let me know. If it's the flash drive, then you need to replace it or depending where and when you bought it., it may be under MFG. warranty.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Hello-:~) i just wanna ask why is that my transcend is unable to format whe i use to click the format windows unable to complete format will appear?? how can i format my USB


You are plugging it in, going to windows, right clicking the drive - format - quick format and its not working?

Try right clicking the drive, going to properties, and run the error checking or disk checking for errors. Windows can attempt to clear the problem.
