Whenever a computer tries to access a flashdisk, even for just retrieving the properties of the disk, a LED will flash.
Not being able to format your disk is another thing. If you've opened a file at this disk, Windows will prevent formatting. Best is to restart your PC, and than immediatelly start the formatting-process.

SOURCE: my 2gb usb shows 8mb

click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes

automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start

you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive

I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box

if still no joy


Right click on usb drive select properties you will have an array of options


Select the hardware option then select your drive properties policies

restore defaults


In XP


Right click on your drive select properties then on customize restore Default in W 7

right click select properties there will be an array of options select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box then click permissions

make sure all 3 boxes are ticked full control change and read in windows 7


click start control panel user accounts click on the administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in windows XP

click start right click on my computer select open
Right click the icon of your Usb Drive (It should be E:/ or something)
Click Properties in the menu that comes up
Click the Sharing tab
Click permissions
And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.


click start click on my computer to open you should see your drive
right click then select format

another way
