Question about Sony Micro Vault Classic 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive
There is a way to make it not inaccessible but that would require you to reformat it using the steps below:..
1. To verify that the USB flash drive is actually the cause of the problem by inserting the drive into a USB port on a different computer. Check to see if the drive remains inaccessible on the separate computer drive. Plug the USB flash drive back into the original USB port if it still shows up as inaccessible.
2. Please open the computer's Start menu and then click on the "My Computer" button to bring up a new window with a list of the drives connected to the PC. Find the "Map A Network Drive" button at the top of the new window. Click on the button and wait for another window to pop up on the screen.
3. Now click on the "Drive Letter" drop-down menu at the top left side of the window. Select a drive letter that you want to use for the USB flash drive. Click on the "Browse" button and then locate the USB flash drive. Click on the drive and then click on the "Open" button. Click on the "Finish" button and then restart the computer.
4. Please return to the Start menu and then open the Control Panel. Double-click the icon in the window labeled as "Administrative Tools." Scroll down through the new list of options that will populate the window and then double-click the "Computer Management" link. Click on "Allow" if your computer's operating system asks for your permission to open the Computer Management menu.
5. Find the "Storage" button at the left side of the window and click on it to bring up a new list of options. Click on the option labeled as "Disk Management" and wait for the list of attached disk drives to populate the panel at the middle of the window.
6. Right-click on the drive letter you selected earlier when you mapped the USB flash drive to the computer. Click on the menu option labeled "Format." Make sure that the "File System" heading is set to "NTFS" and then click on "Start" to reformat the drive. Volia.
7. Restart your computer once the reformatting process has completely finished. Attempt to use the USB flash drive again. If still no luck, try purchasing an entirely new flash drive if the computer still will not recognize the drive, as that will indicate it is defective or physically damaged somehow.
