Hello,

I've been encountering this issue. The problem may come from the card reader or the card holder. If possible, use a different card holder and of problem persists, try a different card reader or test on another computer.

Hope this helps!!

I've had some luck getting this to work again by using the linux ext2 format utility to format it back to the windows fat16 format, then use windows to format it again. There is something that windows doesn't like about the fat table when ext2 does it so you need to do this double format. Doesn't work all the time but does quite a bit.

HOE TO FORMAT DATE TRAVELER


The simplest way to format a Flash Drive or a Pendrive is to format it from the My Computer without using any commands. Let's assume you are doing it on a Computer (Pc Desktop). Follow the instructions;
1. Connect you Data Traveler on one of the Usb port of your computer, and wait for few minutes.
2. After you know that it's been detected by the computer, open "My Computer" then right-click on the Data Traveler's Drive Icon e.g. Removable Disk (K:), etc.. and select "Format"

No access to USB drive when inserted (Windows). ''Malfunction'' error message.


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

Solution 1.
Try using the Installation CD or Utiltity CD that came with your drive to format it.

If theres a Utility CD then install it on your computer and try formating it from the utility application.

If the windows error messages still persist then try formating it with the windows default options or NTFS option.

CAN NOT OPEN MY LG 512MB FLASH DISK


Sounds like it is eather corrupted or its has lost its self install files. Try to right click explore. Also try to format the disk it could be that as well. If that does not work. Run a scan disk and see if the drive is truly corrupted.

File system unrecognised by any of the operating system like windows and linux versions


Is this flash drive used souly at home, or do you take it and plug it into other computers? If that is the case, you may want to scan it, before opening it, cause you could be bringing home a virus.
