Far too often these little things have an almost invisible read/write protect button on them. Look carefully, over the entire surface of the USB Flash Drive. You might have this switch turned to Write Protect, which means there is nothing you can do, until you turn it the other way, and allow the device to be written to.
Toan96, I would recommend that you replace the drive. Why are you reformatting? Was it because there was a problem with the drive? This message you received indicates that there's a read/write problem with the disk.
you need to go to the jobo site, find the driver/software/service link, in that you will find the giga one formatting tool, download and use that. i had the same problem when i purchased my original giga one, i used windows to format the drive - but as people find out windows is unable to format the drive correctly ie fat 32, and you then get an error message. in the formatting tool it tells you why what the different error codes are and error 1 means drive not formatted to fat 32, im not sure how old your giga one is but when i purchased mine approx 4yrs ago it never came with a proper manual and there was no support on the jobo site at the time. I think a lot of these minor problems could be avoided if it came with a manual and explained whats needed to clear the internal hard drive
Maybe I can help;
When I install a new hard drive I like to re-install the operating system (OS) as well. Unfortunatly this wipes out all your files.
Typically when files do not copy it's either because they're in use or the media (your new hard drive) is not formatted properly.
Note, formatting erases everything on the drive being formatted.
Instruction for this are easy to find online but are all done for you if you use the OS install CD which will walk you through the setup, formatting, and partitioning.
If you have a way to save your files to another drive such as a usb thumb drive, external hard drive, cd or dvd, I would go about it that way. There's usually alot of uneeded files created by the operating system after a period of time and there's no sense in keeping them. They only slow your system down.
One other thing you can consider if you don't have an external hard drive is purchasing a hard drive enclosure for your old hard drive. You can find them at Best Buy. I paid about $30. Its just a case and usb cord you can use as an external hard drive and also copy any files you can still access on this old drive over to your new one.
If it shows up in windows explorer as a drive, right click it and choose format and choose ntfs as the file format.
Do you know what format it is when you use linux? I dont think you can use a dos command to format an ntfs volume. Your message probably means it cant read FAT or FAT32 because it probably already is NTFS file format.
