Replace your USB raw with a new one.
It's dead and there's no way to revive it.
It's not possible to format it, forget it

Convert raw fat32 flash drive


Hello,
Want to format RAW flash drive into FAT32 without data loss?
Ok! You come to right place since I did have ever encountered the similar RAW drive problems and learned how to cope with such data loss troubles.
Honestly, while your flash drive was detected as RAW file system, though the PC was always asking you to format, your flash drive was not really corrupted and your drive files were still stored inside this drive well.
All you are supposed to do is to download RAW file system recovery software to take the inaccessible original files back and convert flash drive from RAW to NTFS safely.
Hope my experiences could give you useful clues.

My usb is in raw file system and the capacity is zero while it is 4 gega I cant make any thing to this usb


Hello !
A "raw file system" is when the storage space has not been formatted to any standards (fat32/ntfs).
You need to right click your URB, and choose "FORMAT". I use FAT32 for my USBs. Then just let it format (if it's a new USB don't choose "quick format").
Hope that helps !
All the best.

Kingston Data Traveler 2.0 64 GB USB - file system corrupted - need to work on windows XP- Upon formatting the pen drive It shows that it has become a raw drive - wat is the file format for the USB to work...


Theoretically, you can't format a more than 32 GB drive with FAT/FAT32 file system. In your case you have to choose the NTFS file system to format your 64 GB USB flash drive. However, if you really need to format it with FAT32, you got to use the command line or a third party tool. Hope this is going to help you.

When I plug my smartdisk firelite USBFLB40C into the usb port it says it needs to be formated. What is the problem?


If it is new and has not come pre formatted then you need to format it to match the system as it still could be in RAW state, but I would expect usb devices to be preformatted. (not always the case though)

A bit of history:-

FAT32 recognised by all windows systems ( but does not support files more than 4GB)

NTFS recognised by systems other than FAT32 (and supports files above 4GB)

FAT 32 was the native format for WIN98 but unfortunately when XP came along many companies continued to format in FAT32 for XP machines especially for the home user. (and XP would run quite happily with the format)

NTFS was and is the more stable of the two.
