Pocket Fuzzies?
Get a bright light and look into the USB connectorof the USB Drive. It is possible that there is lint, paper bits, cookiecrumbs, Chocolate cruddies from Valentines day, etc in there and that is your problem. The outer 2 connectionsof the USB is DATA and the inner two Power. B/C it is able to flash,youare getting power... but the data lines may be dirty, covered, bent,etc.

Clean it up and try again. Flat toothpick, small ty-wrap orProxident (dental/braces) brushes work well for this - DO NOT useanything Metal!! It will scratch the connectors and vastly shortentheir life (they are GOLD plated)

Short of that, goto HPsite and get their USB format tool (get it here:http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=197 ) and try reformatting... if that doesn't work, it is hosed and only I can fix itso let me know ;-)

Kingston Data Traveler 2.0 64 GB USB - file system corrupted - need to work on windows XP- Upon formatting the pen drive It shows that it has become a raw drive - wat is the file format for the USB to work...


Theoretically, you can't format a more than 32 GB drive with FAT/FAT32 file system. In your case you have to choose the NTFS file system to format your 64 GB USB flash drive. However, if you really need to format it with FAT32, you got to use the command line or a third party tool. Hope this is going to help you.

The thumb drive might have some fault.
Plug it in other OS mainly windows XP and Linux.
If still same problem persists after tried in Linux, problem is with pen drive.
You can ask for a replacement from the dealer as it has guarantee for 5years.
