Either your computer cannot format in FAT32 being the default format type, the format failed or the USB stick has developed a fault.

SOURCE: Hi! I have a Verbatim 8GB

Throw it away (after taking a hammer to it, so that any "data" on it will definitely _NOT_ be able to be recovered). Then, for less than $20, buy a replacement.

Or, check the manufacturer's web-site. If it is still under warranty, maybe they will replace it, at minimal cost to you.

1. Try a different USB port. If other ports recognize it, then the original port is fried. 2. Try a different computer. If the other computer does not recognize it, then your flash drive is damaged.

Good Luck!

When I put in 16 GB Maxell memory stick into my MacBook Pro it does not acknowledge it. The package says it is compatible with MAC but this one is not working.


Try reformatting on another computer in a more compatible format. Also try to find in the finder and right click and look into the formatting options.

How do I remowe wrightprotection on maxell usb drive


Assuming you have Windows 7 - click on start > right click on Computer > manage > Disk Managment on the left > select the usb drive from the menu at the bottom > right click and format, Name it whatever you want. If you want to copy files over 4gb then select NTFS if not then stick with FAT32. Leave allocation unit size as it is. Make sure there is a tick next to Perform a quick format (unless it fails then untick it) then format. Please note that these steps will completely wipe your usb stick of any content it currently has.
