Hi, I was attempting to format my USB drive to NTFS system. The drive was being formatted and got 50% thru the process when an erro msg came up saying windows could not complete the format. This is a brand new drive which was formatted to FAT32 originally. The drivers still detect the flash drive when it is inserted. The drive appears in my computer but i can't access it or fomat it. It says 'insert disk'. Disk management detects the drive and allocates a drive letter to it but no drive details appear. It just says 'no media'. I've tried Killdisk but this detects the drive but says 'drive not ready' so you can't do anything. I've also tried EASEUS Partition Manager 1.1 which is a windows version of the partition doctor but this acnnot even detect the drive at all. I know i was stupid in formatting the USB drive but please can you help me save my drive! There is no data on it that i need so re-formatting it is not a problem. I've heard suggestions of formatiing on Windows 98 but i'm going to struggle to find a PC with Win 98 on it. Any other suggestions or advice? Please, please, please help. I'm desperate. thanks in advance. Shuja.
