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.

It sounds like your USB stick has died on you. Unfortunately USB drives are not very durable and these things happen, I've been through at least a dozen now! Try it in another computer and see if it works there. If it does then try updating the USB drivers on your PC.

I havea Acer aspire 7530 running slow can't download music need HELP

Assuming you don't have a virus, check the amount of free disk space on your primary hard drive.
START>Computer>C drive>Properties. You need to have at least 15% free to be able to do anything meaningful. If your drive is almost full, you must delete files and then run Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter. (START>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup and then Disk Defragmenter) Depending upon the size of your Hard Drive this may take a while.
Make sure that your Virus Protection software is up to date. If you don't have a Virus Checker, try and try the free download.
Your system should perform better now. After you've removed the files and done the Disk Defragmenter, let me know if this solve some of the problem. There are other things we can try, but the Disk nearing capacity is the normal issue.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks.

Probably caused by a virus or the flash drive is already damaged. But here some option you should try: Test your flash drive on another PC. Try to format the flash drive. Use software tools to repair the flash drive like: pctools for example.

Good luck!!!

When i install (ide 80 gb hard disk) window .at the end when i check drive then only c drive space is 17 gb and drive d ,e,f are o zero now tell me what is the problem

did you partition your hard drive into more than one partition? If so, then did you purposely partition your "C" drive to 17-20 GB? If it's only showing up 17 GB then the other partitions are not formatted yet, or they are formatted to a file format that Windows isn't capable of reading.
