    When inserted the 2GB transend Pendrive and clicked on it, then E: drive (hard disk drive) is opened. So when I explore it pend drive is opened. And i removed the auotrun.ini file (may be virus) and try to reopen it. but the same above apperars. So i try to format, it display "device is in use"(some thing like that) nad not formated. So i tried with command promt, then it asks to dismount it (Y/N) and i have typed y. then it shows it format is RAW . And after that not showing any data or size is 0 bytes and not formatting. Then What to do now.

Its most likely that the device is dead and the data is not recoverable, no software will work as it does not show as a drive. You could send it to a data recovery expert like LC Technology, they helped me on a similar issue.

Dinu1988, I don't believe that reinstalling windows will solved the problems. My pendrive cannot be formatted even from dos promp. It still shows write protected. I tried HP/Low level format etc. software but still not success. One of my pendrive Kingston 6gb with Zero byte cannto be repaired by the HP software .... Now i'm still seaching for the solution... Write protect & Zero byte.

Hi there,

This is what you should do to sort out this problem:
Put the pen drive in to a different computer that the pen drive works on and copy all files and folders off of the pen drive on to the computer. Then you must right click on the pen drive in "My Computer" and click "Format", once the pen drive has been formatted, replace all of the files and folders on to the pen drive and it should now work.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day an please remember to rate this solution.

Pen drive display free space 0 byte and used space also 0 byte

Try formatting the drive. Assuming Windows XP, just open your "my computer" icon, right-click on the device and choose format. Be aware, formatting will remove any data you may have had on there previously.

If you're using another OS, or if it's an existing drive, please re-state your question giving further details (what OS, what you are trying to retrieve, etc).

Pen drive is showing o bytes

I would first put it through a fast formatte then a standard formatte, then i would recommend asector scan and see if there are any sectors that are not recoverable, if they are messed up and or still not solved try to uninstall the file that has stored the recognition files for the pen drive remove the main file in c drive program files , find the file by name corresponding to what it is you have and delet it then do a full shutdown and after a full cold start reboot install pen and software when asked if you still experience this post the results and i will try to help in a higher level of tech knowledge and support
