I'm a little confused as you mention both Drive E. which suggests Windows and gnome which suggest linux.

WARNING: Formatting the disk will erase any data on it. Do not format the disk if you are trying to get the data off it that was on it yesterday.

It is possible that the partition table has been corrupted.

If you are using windows. You can either try right clicking on the drive (not double clicking) from Windows Explorer (My Computer) and clicking format. Choose the file system type and go. Alternatively, you could work through the disk management administrative tool. Right Click on My Computer -> Manage -> Disk Management. Right click on the volume and format it.

If you are using linux, see if you have a valid partition table using fdisk for the device. Then, after creating the partition, use mkdosfs to format the drive. If you have formatted the drive as a linux partition, such as ext2, ext3, or reiserfs, it is likely that Windows will not see it as a valid drive.

PC is not detecting my Cruzer micro pendrive but


I have experienced this type of problem before. But what I did was to install an Avira Anti-virus on a system using windows xp and eventually it did open.

So you can try it as well or insert your flash into any another system that had a strong anti-virus which can enable you scan/format the drive.

Best of Luck

PLEASE INSERT A DISK INTO DRIVE(H): (pendrive problem)


I had the same issue with my 4GB Sony Memory Card when I put it in my memory card slot on my computer. I have a Toshiba laptop, so what I did that fixed the problem is I went to Toshibas Support Webpage in the downloads section and under the CATEGORY: Driver Card Reader and re-downloaded: Ricoh Card Reader for Windows 7 (32/64)(v3.54.02; 09-04-2009; 4.94M) and once I did that it read my memory card and didn't give me any more issues and it opened all my pictures. Of course if you don't have a Toshiba then you would go to your manufacturers web site and see if they have the same thing, because that is what fixed my issue and it didn't take long at all.
