    Can anyone here guide me on how to format this usb drive?
    Earlier I was able to use it and copy/move things off and onto the drive, safety removed it then off to a friends house and then plugged it in, nothing happened it didn't even recognized the name of the drive, all it said was "Removable Storage" when I try to click/explore it it always returned as "Incorrect parameter" or something like that.

    I was not able to format it normally or via disk management utility under xp and 7....

    Could this still be formattable? Could I still save it?

    Hope somebody could help me...

    P.S. IDK if this is a H/W or S/W issue so I posted here @ GNHW. Mods feel free to transfer this to the appropriate section if needed be. Thanks
    :cry:

    delete the partition from disk management and try making a new partition again in fat32 or whatever you had before

    Dont mention RAW system file to me, last time I saw that I had to RMA my Sammie F1, I think it may well be fubarred.

    Good thing is its only a 1gb drive lol, you should be able to pick one for for $2?

    Hi and thanks for the quick reply, I could not do that since it does not display the "RAW" file system type. It just states a drive letter and blank picture where the file system should be like the other drives


    Heh unfortunately this is a gift from a dear friend but sadly it fubarred rofl
