I had the same problem.
Go to the Dos Prompt via run cmd
format d: or whatever your drive letter is.

This worked for me.

PS these flash drives are copies and are made in China. I just bought one for $7.50 Yes that is seven dollars and 50 cents.

This was not helpful to me at all. I tried NTFS, exFAT, FAT, and FAT32. I was not able to format at all. Is it possible that this drive has a security enabled to only one computer?

How do i fix my usb flash drive .. it keeps going raw when i try to convert from fat32 to ntfs


When you say try to convert, you mean reformat from fat32 to NTFS? Depending on the size you may not be able to write it as a NTFS. Also, if you have anything on it you want to save, you need a raw recovery tool Squidoo has a good one.
However, if it won't let you format to anything and keeps reverting to raw, most likley your drive is damaged beyond normal repair.

Cant Format pen drive


1. Download this tool:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/LLFTOOL.EXE

2. Format

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)

Cant format 400gb usb flash drive


So the disk is recognized? And there is a valid partition on the disk?
What is the error you are getting?
Have a look at this external hard disk troubleshooting, maybe it helps you along.

My usb flashdisk become raw data


1). Do not format this hard drive before you've recovered all your stored data back. In your case, the formatting process may erase everything on your drive and make your data gone permanently.
2). Never save anything new on this drive in case that any new file would rewrite your original data.
3). Plunge this drive to your computer and download a RAW drive data recovery freeware to get back all your lost data back:
http://www.freeware-fix.blogspot.com/2013/02/raw-hard-drive-recovery.html
This hard drive has helped many people around me restore their inaccessible data back from a RAW drive or memory card. It can also work perfectly on your drive.
Read more detailed information of this freeware here:
http://blog4mark.blogspot.com/2012/10/help-external-drive-became-raw.html
4). Save and back up all your restored data on another drive in case of data recovery failure.
5). Format this drive to see whether it is fixable.
