it's works on unknown capacity format problem


Requirements: A "corrupt" USB thumb/flash drive, and windows vista/7.


First of all, RESTART YOUR PC...(this is the only way it worked for me...hopefully it works the same for you)


1. Plug-in your USB flash drive to USB port.


2. Open Command Prompt with admin rights. Use any of the below methods to open Command Prompt.


*Type cmd in Start menu*


3. You need to know about the USB drive a little bit. Type in the following commands in the command prompt:


>>> First type DISKPART and hit enter to see the below message. (this opens the disk-partition manager)


>>> Next type LIST DISK command and note down YOUR FLASH DRIVE'S Disk number (eg: Disk 1). BE CAREFUL NOT TO CHOOSE YOUR PRIMARY HARD-DRIVE.


4. Next type all the below commands one by one. Here I assume that your disk drive no is "Disk 1".If you have Disk 2 as your USB flash drive then use Disk 2.Refer the above step to confirm it.
So below are the commands you need to type and execute one by one:


SELECT DISK 1


CLEAN


CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY


SELECT PARTITION 1


ASSIGN


FORMAT FS=NTFS
(Format process may take few minutes)


EXIT


If you did everything exactly, then your USB drive should be goos as new.

Formating the flashdrive may restore the drive to its full capacity. This will delete the existing files on the flashdrive.

Try this freeware call smart Data Recovery

This is different from other recovery software because it not only recover lost file from harddrive and floppy like most do, but also recover from removable media like flash drive.


Hope you can get back the images

Run command prompt as Admin

Now in admin mode type this

attrib -h -r -s /s /d H:\*.*


Do not move any spaces just copy and see where H is, replace this

This usually occurs with high water pressures.
It may help by installing a water reducing valve at the water meter.
When a dish washer or washing machine turns on and off the water you will get a water hammer noise. The pipe fixings have come loose over time and the pipe bangs against the fixings.
You can reduce this noise by installing a water hammer device on the all the taps and then connecting the hoses from the dishwasher and washing machines to the water hammer devices.

I suggest you check out the best options with a plumber.

Hi klgunby
If you are good with a soldering iron then you may be able to re-attach the usb plug, if not then you will need to replace it. Hope this helps.
