Try this first:
Right click my computer, then go to manage, then go to disk management and look for the removable disk (your flash disk) then right click it and try to delete and create partition. then format.

The problem you are talking about is most probably of the virus infection. Try to format your pen drive in your system and you can restore back your pen drive.

On opening a pen drive it is showing 'please insert a disk into removable disk (h:)' and opening its properties it is showing used space 0 bytes free space 0 bytes


Hello there yogeshpat876.

Here's your geek-steer ...

Is this a new drive? If so, it probably just needs to be formatted [and optionally assigned to whatever free drive (letter) you desire]:

Start > Run... > tpye "diskmgmt.msc" (without quotes), then OK

Good luck, and please do post back ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
  • to provide clarification or feedback,
  • if you have ANY further questions.
Today's the best day of my life ... and NOW you're part of it!

Pen drive is showing o bytes


I would first put it through a fast formatte then a standard formatte, then i would recommend asector scan and see if there are any sectors that are not recoverable, if they are messed up and or still not solved try to uninstall the file that has stored the recognition files for the pen drive remove the main file in c drive program files , find the file by name corresponding to what it is you have and delet it then do a full shutdown and after a full cold start reboot install pen and software when asked if you still experience this post the results and i will try to help in a higher level of tech knowledge and support

How to format raw sandisk 250 hard drive with window xp.i couldnot use this mp3 player after i used this device to transfer files from one computer to the other.after transferring the file,i deleted the...


Alright, plug the player in with your USB cable.

Open "My Computer" and find in on the list of drives and CD-Roms. It will be called something like "Audio Device" or "Removable Storage Device". Make sure you find the correctly icon for the player.

Right click the player then select the format option. You'll probably want to use a FAT32 format as it is the usual format for MP3 players and flash drives of the like. This will totally erase any files on the player, so be forewarned before you complete this.

Raw file system is basically the media in it's standard state. All the information is recorded as zero's and this is how your computer is seeing it. It is either reporting incorrectly due to bad file system error, or simple was formatted incorrectly.

Give that a try, let me know what happens. :) Hope it helps.
