  1. Manage

    Disc management

    Format the drive (E, G which ever show as 2gb)

    then if you need to you can get recovery software to get the files off.

    Badcopypro, Recover my files. . . . .


    Hope helps
  2. If you can't format the USB stick from Disk Management, then there's not much chance getting it to work. I had the same problem with a new USB pen I bought just before Christmas, now its in the bin.
