I just suggested the same utility to another user, who said it wasn't useful (search VEM on FixYa for the thread). I'm now trying to understand why it didn't work. I'd be grateful if you could check too, and report on whether it worked or not.
probably lost all info but can save drive if its like a cruzer ... first with drive inserted go to computer and see what drive it is ie: D:, E: etc. open CMD... on XP go to run type CMD ... in Vista type CMD in the search by start and open command prompt. Type drive letter followed by : (example F:) then press enter now it should look like this F:\>_ now type "DIR" enter and you will see any files on that drive, to copy and try to save files type "copy F:\filename C:\newfolder" now this is just an example so make sure you create a folder to copy to prior to this copy function after you copy all files you need then you can delete files that are preventing it from working in my case I deleted all files and started over. To delete files ... At the prompt type "DEL F:\filename" do this with each file, if you need to know functions in command, at the prompt type "help" when you finish you should be able to format the drive and put your files back on .... good luck
I had the same problem with my 1GB SONY MicroVault Clip flash drive. Hardware and the drive shows up on Vista, but it refuses to open or format it.
1) IT MANAGED TO REFORMAT NICELY ON WINDOWS XP!!!! So try this, or 2) When the Micro Vault does not operate well, please download the format
software from a "download" button and re-format the Micro Vault. http://www.sony.net/Products/Media/Microvault/products/usm-l/dl.html
I think for some reason there is a limit to the number of files (nb: number of files not amount of space used) that the root directory can handle. Try making folders and moving files into these to cut down on the number of root directory entries.
