SOURCE: cant format 400gb usb flash drive

So the disk is recognized? And there is a valid partition on the disk?

you can try format recovery software like asoftech data recovery. You can see

It tells the steps how to perform format recovery.

I cannot format my ImageMate USB 2.0 Reader/Writer. It is impossible on two computers. The software program is downloaded but on Computer Manager it does not appear. I have Vista.


You do not need any special software to format a USB/flash drive.
Open My Computer and right-click on the icon for the USB drive. One of the options should be "format", which allows you to format the USB/flash drive

Try the flash drive in another computer, if it works then backup your data.
Files on a flash drive can be corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon and then click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flash drive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive you may need to format the flash drive, but you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: -
