I could n't access my files in my pendrive JF V30


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 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: -

My usb stick needs to be formatted for pc but i cant


you can try format recovery software like asoftech data recovery. You can see
Recover formatted files
It tells the steps how to perform format recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the usb drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the usb drive and recover your files.

Try formatting the drive. Assuming Windows XP, just open your "my computer" icon, right-click on the device and choose format. Be aware, formatting will remove any data you may have had on there previously.

If you're using another OS, or if it's an existing drive, please re-state your question giving further details (what OS, what you are trying to retrieve, etc).
