Farid you should write your problem in details, i.e. whats going on when you try to format the flash disk. To format flash disk the steps are :

1). Plug your Flash to USB port of your system.

2). Cancel if auto play window appears.

3). Double click on My Computer icon

  • The icon for your flash will be appear in the My computer window.
4). Right Click on your Flash icon and select Format from the pop-up menu appeared.
  • WARRNING: If you will select wrong disk i.e. other than your flash you will loose all the data of that disk.
So, please be aware of that.


Thanks
Iqbal

    what did you done?


    • try to remove your flash from USB port and insert it again.

    • may be your flash damaged physically, in that case your system will not recognize but its rare to be damaged.


    • try to check your flash in another system.



    and see m vry unhappy with your rating. You have asked how to make format and answer that. The rating you have given to my solution means my solution is not related to your problem, Is it not.



    anyway thanks for your rating.



    Thanks

How to Install windows 7 by using usb flash drive, pen driver or usb harddisk.


Hi,

Friends i have seen thousand of laptop cd/dvd rom stops working very soon. then the quesion is how you do intall your os if it was corrupted.
follow my tip and install windows7 or vista in very simple way.

a) first insert your usb flash drive or hdd in usb port
b) then open commandprompt from accessories with rightclick run as administrator
c) you must know what is drive letter of your usb flash drive.
d) type DISKPART in command prompt and press enter
e) then type LISTDISK in command prompt
f) Next type all the below commands one by one. Here I assume that your disk drive no is “Disk 1”.If you have Disk 2 as your USB flash drive then use Disk 2.Refer the above step to confirm it.

So below are the commands you need to type and execute one by one:

SELECT DISK 1

CLEAN

CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY

SELECT PARTITION 1

ACTIVE

FORMAT FS=NTFS

(Format process may take few seconds)

ASSIGN

EXIT

g) Next insert your Windows7/Vista DVD into the optical drive and check the drive letter of the DVD drive. In this guide I will assume that your DVD drive letter is “D” and USB drive letter is “H” (open my computer to know about it).

h) Maximize the minimized Command Prompt in the 4th step.Type the following command now:

D: CD BOOT and hit enter.Where “D” is your DVD drive letter.

CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.

i) Type another command given below to update the USB drive with BOOTMGR compatible code.

BOOTSECT.EXE /NT60 H:
J) Copy your Windows 7/Vista DVD contents to the USB flash drive.

Eject the usb drive and select first boot device usb drive or usb hdd in motherboards bios.

enjoy... and please rate this trick.

My flash drive have Gobilam_Coprp virus. How can I delete it?


If you have antivirus installed and antivirus can detect the virus, just simply right click 'scan for viruses'. then delete if prompted. Right click option may vary depending on the antivirus.
Otherwise if you don't have antivirus installed you can format your flash disk. but this will also deleting all files on your flash disk. Make backup copy of your files before formatting.

Hi,


Download the HP Format Tool and install it. Get your boot disk or the downloadable files and copy/extract them to a folder on your HD. Make sure anything on your USB Drive is backed up because we are going to format it...

Open the HP Format Tool
Start/Programs/Hewlett-Packard Company/HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool
It should automatically select your USB Drive.
Select FAT or FAT32 Under File System.
Select Create a DOS startup disk
Select using DOS system files located at and point to the folder containing the boot disk files.
Then click Start

Micro sd 2gb card, not read.


Sometimes when a flash memory stick fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

When the flash memory device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Health.

Windows was unable to format my flash disk


It seems that the card is bad. Try to format the card on a different machine to rule out your Windows formatter.
