    Default Busted flash drive

    Hey i'm just wondering if there is anyway to fix my busted flash drive. It is a 512mb kingston data traveller. It was working one second then the next when i try to open it up, it says that the drive is unformatted, and i have tried many ways to format it but to no avail. When i check the properties it has 0 bytes and 0 free space. does anyone have any suggestions on how i can restore it? i dont mind if all the stuff is gone, i just want my flash drive back!!!

    send it back for warrentay?

    sorry not much you can do to fix it. If it doesn't format it sounds like the flash memory has gone bad. Not much you can do for it

    I had the same problem. HP has a utility that works just like the Windows format utility but specially for flash drives. Worked great for me.
