SOURCE: Unable to Format WesternDigital USB Hard Disk

Are you formatting a new disk or an existing one? Keep in mind that the rest of us do not know all the details that you know unless you tell us & thus it will take much longer to resolve your issue.
You said "after you tried it with XP CD". Dont know what you mean. What program did you use the first time & what steps did you do?

What does card protected mean?


Wheb you have a SD, SDHC or SDXC memory card and you put the switch to the lock position, the card is protected, That means nothing can change the files that are stored on the card. Not by wiring, not by deleting and not by formatting. Keep the lock with up, towards the golden connection points.
On the picture the 64 GB card is unlocked. `the 32 GB card is locked 8ab871eb-243a-48dd-a8d8-58e5df95d568.jpg

I had a pendrive of 8 GB my friend tried to make a bootable pendrive so he changed some settings by command prompt. My pendrive storage capacity dropped from 8 GB to 3.44 GB I need a good solution please...


Hello,
It seems that after your friend made it a bootable pendrive, he/she did not format it.The space has been used up by the installation files in the flashdrive,and these files may be hidden.This is likely to be the case with some command-line utilities for making bootable flashdrives.
To recover your space, simply format your USB pendrive.To do so on Windows XP,insert the flashdrive into your PC, go to My Computer, right-click the USB pendrive,and in the window that appears, click the tools tab and select the Format option.
That should solve your problem.

Formating the flashdrive may restore the drive to its full capacity. This will delete the existing files on the flashdrive.
