This situation often comes when you're incorrectly disconnecting the drive (or even worse if you are disconnecting it when the data is copying).
The right way:
point your mouse cursor at the icon with green arrow (at the systray near the clock on the bottom right side of your screen). Press LEFT mouse button and press on the pop-out text: Safely remove USB mass storage device Drive(X:). If you see text on yellow balloon "The 'USB mass storage device' can now be safely removed from the system" you can safely remove it now.
Try to use your pen drive with another computer. Too many humidity or static charge can also damage you pen drive.
Sometimes there's nothing you can do with your pen drive with the situation you've described.

My system is asking to format pendrive but i am nt able to format.. the pendrive is showing skymedi driver and i am not able to view the pendrive content..


I had a similar problem with my SanDisk 8 GB pen-drive recently. The system did recognize the pen-drive but asked for a format when trying to open. I was not able to format it either. It's unfortunate that this don't have a fix. What I did was, I took it back to the dealer as I was under warranty time. He realized the complaint and replaced the item with a new one.

Pen-drives usually have a long warranty period (SanDisk have 5 years). So if you are under warranty, take it back to your dealer. He will replace it for you. If you are out of warranty too, you may take it to the dealer and ask him what's next?

Hope this one solved your problem. If you have additional doubts, please come back to us.


P.S: If the solution is helpful, please accept the solution.


Regards,
Sunny.

When i try to open my pen drive it says I:\ access denied can anyone help me pls pls solve my problm


If you are sure that there's no drive or folder protection software installed, follow the below instructions;

Connect the pen drive on a usb port of your computer, > Open "My Computer" > click on the drop down menu button on the right hand side of the address bar

and from the available lists shown, select your pen drive's drive name/letter, suppose if it's "K", then move your mouse and select it.

(Picture indicative only)
This will open the your pendrive, if there's no actual protection. In most cases this is caused by virus and spyware, but we can alternatively open it in this way. If there's problem accessing the data or opening it as mentioned above, the scan it using an updated antivirus. It's also possible that you can open it on another computer and can't be opened on another, so try it on other system and backup the files, then format it, that'll fix your problem.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hard disk formetting


hi,

I think low level formatting should do the trick. you can download it and its free. In your case try to download the DOS based version. This type of formatting erases the entire disk clean.
