C drive showing 0bytes and won't format but D drive shows 33GBs??

Hi I'm working on an Acer Aspire 3680
Its C drive(80G from factory) shows absolutely no data and won't format. It asks me to check if it is installed. However, I am showing 33 Gb's available on the D drive and additional 7.8 GB's on "PQSERVICE" X: drive? If the C drive was bad wouldn't those two drives also show as empty or unreachable?

HELP?!?

No. As each drive is on it's own "circuit" then they each show as good or bad. Try taking the drive out and making sure that it is fully in and retrying as sometimes a loose connection will cause a lost drive.

4gb scan disk showing space as 0bytes if i click open then it show format now if i continue it shows format is not completed insert new disk plz help how to rectifie this problem


This problem is most probably due to virus infection. This USB drive can no longer be formatted in your system. However, you can try to format it by disabling your anti-virus protection for a while. If this one does not work, then try to format it on another system (eg. your friend's computer).
