Anyone knows some program to format ou repair or anything else to format to factory setting (if that is possible) a USB Flashdrive.

I have a Datatraveler 100 4GB, till few weeks ago it was working fine, read average of 16mb/s write at 10mb/s, then suddenly the write speed goes down, now maximum 2mb/s, and read still the same, I already try using that HP Format utility but it didn´t work.

Copying big files its impossible, take minuts to finish, sometimes not even this, the led indicator in the flashdrive blinks and never stop, I have to remove it from the USB.
