Hi
Flash drives do often break. If it will not format and does not show up when you plug it in then I'm afraid you might have to buy a new one. Luckily, they can be found very cheaply at sites such as play.com and amazon.

Lacie 16gb whizkey unable to format in mac


If you have a windows computer, attempt to format it in the drive options (Control panel > System And Security > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management, then right-click the drive, format into FAT 32) Otherwise, use disk utility (Applications > Utilities > Disk Utilities) to format it on mac (I don't have a mac right in front of me, but from what I'm reading, it seems to be a straightforward process)

USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

also
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:

- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
hope this helps

I have mistakenly formated my TDK 8GB TRANS-IT FLASHDRIVE and altough it is empty it looks only 9.95MB capacity. Any suggestion to solve this?


When the flash memory USB hard drive device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it.
Try formatting using Disk manager.
Insert the flash or USB 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 Healthy.
