I have a transcend pendrive wen i insert it it shows drive has to be format but wen i m tryng to format its not formattingl08305


It is possible that the memory was damaged or is infected with a strong virus malware that does a block on detection to the PC. try the same on another PC which has a good protection and if this works there are faults on your port or the PC is infected.
If the drive is still not detected then the memory is faulty even after you try to format on any PC.

Cant format my son


VIRUS OR TROJAN INFECTIONS:

Virus or trojans can run some process that keeps running in background. This not only harms the computer, but also prevents the pen drive from formatting as it shows that the drive is in use. Remove and re-insert thepen drive, don't double click on drive and cancel autorun operations if it starts automatically. Run a virus scan on pen drive, this will help fix the issue. Now format the pen drive.



Always take precautions while using pen drives on other computers. See the some of our posts below on protecting your pen drive from viruses:


CORRUPTED FLASH CHIPS ON PEN DRIVE:

If the pen drive is not detected at all, or shows a less capacity, then there are high chances that its a chip corruption. Flash chips are the actual hardware components that save the data. A physical or electrical or electromagnetic damage to these chips make the pen drive faulty. This can happen because of voltage fluctuations and faulty USB ports. In such case, get the flash drive replaced if its under warranty as it can not be fixed otherwise.


FAKE PEN DRIVES:

Sounds a bit un-believable but true. There are a lot of pen drives in the market which are of very cheap quality which are fake copies of some known brands. Beware of such pen-drives. Always purchase pen-drives or memory-cards from a reliable source with bill and warranty to avoid any mess later.

For usb pen drive


Most virus scanners will allow you to scan your peripheral drives. Just put the pen drive into a usb port.. wait for the computer to recognize it then open up your virus scanner and scan the drive letter associated with your pen drive.

To remove virus from pen drive


Hi,
When you plug in your pen drive, don't open the pen drive.
You can see an secondary storage device icon in your 'My Computer'.
Right click the pen drive and scan for viruses.
If you really have virus then the virus, the antivirus agent will show you the virus.
You can kill/delete the virus.
You won't lose any of your data.
( OR)
I have one more option,
If you have linux(Linux Ubuntu, Suse Linux,...) installed in your system, you can login to Linux and
plug in your pen drive, you can delete the virus directly, by opening the pen drive.
Here also you won't lose any of your data.


Cheers...!!!

Computers restarts on inserting usb pendrive problem


The reason is simple,once some virus has infected the pen drive and has created autorun entries, it can run any-kind of task through auto-play feature.

So to fix it, we first of all need to Disable Autoplay on all removable drives. see the following link http://www.troublefixers.com/how-to-protect-your-computer-from-virus-in-pen-drives/

After this, Insert the pen drive, do not open the drive or double click on it, simply insert it. Now its time for some cleaning by removing Virus created autorun entries, see this following link for removing autorun entries.
http://www.troublefixers.com/scan-and-remove-suspicious-autoruninf-with-autorun-eater-virus-removal-tools/

That is it, its done. But if you still face problem with the drive, format the pen drive. We hope you find it useful.
