Since the drive is detected click the drive and open all files with a search tag. can use a ( *) to bring out all files.
Now select all files by right click and delete them off, the pen drive is not allowing due to some corrupt files.
Once this is done the formatting can be repeated.

I have a 2GB scandisk pendrive, I unable to format it, Whenever i tried to format it in command. Msg appered IOCTL call error. how can I format it. Pl help me


Try formatting the flash drive using this method.

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

AUTORUN.EXE & RECYCLE VIRUS


You need to do a low level format on the pen drive and the system drive. I have found by using programs like kill disk is the best way to get rid of a worm virus. A regurlar format will not work, unlike what they say to you. Kill disk will stop all running prorgrams on the drive. What it does it rights zero to the pen the drive. After that you need to do the same to your system drive. Otherwise you will be back to square one.
