when i open usb device it shows that you need to format it before you can use it. And when i click on format it takes hours and do nothing. Further it is showing 0 byte free and 0 byte used in its properties. Its a 4 gb memory card.
Any solution ?

not sure if they are fixable ,did you try right clicking on its icon in mycomputer ,go properties/tools and run the disk check,see what it says , ,and maybe then try formatting it ,

it says something like cant perform disk check for errors as the device is not formated and asks to format device and when i click on format, it shows no progress even after hours.

my opinion is its gone bad for some reason ,that the error I got just before I smasked the few I smashed .lol

Try formatting it here: Right click My computer and choose Manage. In the left side Menu click removable storage under storage menu. It will show you your USB device after plug-in. Format it.
