Long time no post!

OK... here is the sitch..

I have a 256 2.0 USB Flash drive.

I have been saving teachers things on it and I went to access it, and it says that it needs to be formated. I know that if I do that, I will loose everything.

Well, after kicking myself in the butt for several hours, I decided that I should just format the thing and get it over it. But I can't format it!

That is something that I don't get.

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

By chance do you have a linux machine you can stick it in and mount vfat?

Nope. We are an all Windows campus.


Well, ive gotten the same problem. They crap out at times, so you will need to send it back... It would help if we knew the brand and stuff


Knowing the brand wouldnt really make a difference. Just contact the company that made it and they should make a trade. It happened several times to a friend of mine.
