You have lost your stuff more than likely. You can try to use ScanDisc in applications to fix it, but possibly dead. You will need to reformat.

What operating system is on the computer you copied the file from, the computer it's going to? Did you encrypt the flash drive? Example: if you have the drive formatted for HF+ on a Apple you won't be able to see it on a Windows box without a little help. If this is the case, plug the drive in the Windows computer format it as NTFS. Plug it back into the Apple, Apple can see NTFS, copy the file to flash drive, plug into win comp and it will see it.

I have a sandisk disk on key with a 4gb memory capacity. it currently has NOTHING stored on it yet says i only have 1.45 gb free. how do i clear this up? is there a way i need to format...


Hey gita! Formatting a Flash drive is really simple! Assuming you're using Windows, plug it in your PC and go to My Computer. Right click on the drive and press Format. You can choose either Quick format or normal format(Quick format does it really quickly but it may not yield best results). After that simply press Format and wait for it to finish.
You should have formatted your Flash drive and have your original 4GB of space restored!
Keep in mind that you may have less than 4GB(about 3.8-3.7) This is because formatting writes instructions to the flash drive.
Have fun :)

Sandisk U3 Cruzer Micro 4Gb Cant Format


With your computer on and the SD Flashdrive fitted correct side UP in the USB port, go to 'My Computer' on the desktop and select the flash drive. The computer will ask you what function you want to perform on the drive and you must select 'format.' You did not say what kind of operating system you are using or I could give you more information. Let me know what happens,

Sd memory card says card can not be read why?


you can try formatting the disk. otherwise, it may be erased or damaged.

this same thing happened to me with my sandisk 8gb micro sd in my phone.

I lost everything on the disk, it never worked again , and still not sure how it happened?

maybe they zap em from satellite to make us buy new ones? LOL who knows.

more than likely if it cannot be formatted and cannot be read it's done.

p.s. did you check to see if the disk is locked?

Format 8gb sandisk micro sd problem


Often times, these jump drives have a tiny, nearly invisible read-only switch on them. Check to see that it isn't set to read only, which will inhibit formatting, among other things.
