I accidentally pulled out a Verbatim 4 gb stick from my computer, without realizing that it should only be removed in the "safe" mode. Now it won't work. Is it permanently damaged or can it be repaired or reprogrammed? If so, how?

Hi im wesley. please plug the stick in your pc if it shows then simply go to my computer right click on the stick and say format it will then work as only data on the disk has been damaged but if it doesnt show then it is unrepairable you need to buy a new one.

How do I format a Kingston 8-GB Data Traveler 101 flash drive which is write-protected?


You can try to go to safemode (to go to safemode restart the computer then tap F8 while restarting then select Safe Mode with Command Prompt) Note: you have to have the flash drive connected before restarting After loading files if your USB Memory Stick drive letter is (F) for example then write as C:\windows\system32>F: and press enter F:\>format F: and press enter If it ask you (Y/N) then press (Y) and press enter It should reformat the usb flash drive


You can also check out the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
The value should be "0".

How do I safely turn off my Verbatim hardrive when I shutdown my laptop that it is attached to.


In the notification area you will see an icon with the Safely Remove hardware label - click on it; a small window will appear listing the devices connected to the USB ports (your stick included) . Click on the entry corresponding to the stick, wait a few moment to be unloaded from the Windows and take it out. Now you can shutdown safely.
