  1. Ok...
    Hello everyone,
    I hope someone can help me on this one. I have a 512MB USB Flash Drive.
    (i don't remember the manufacture...I erased it on my flash drive)

    First of all, i plug it into the computer and use it, the flash drive hung up on me...Then later on, the windows pop-up with a message saying somehting about "windows delay writing files" below the taskbar. I then quickly remove the flash drive from teh computer and the when i replug in the flash drive, it said it found a new hardware, "generic Hard drive."

    When I right-click on the drive to see the space, it shows me 0 byte(s) How can i format this drive? i Can't even format it (through DOS or Win mode [right-click]). Is there a way to fix this?
    Any tips would greatly appreciated ;) :hotbounce
