  1. Don't force it - If you got lots of errors or problems while using the pendrive might as well stop using it. It has it's limits - If it is still under warranty then return it or buy a new one.
  2. if it is still on warranty then return it.if not then do a low level format but it is very risky so do it at your own risk...
  3. hey! i have got a solution for this
    go to cmd and type diskpart
    than type list disk
    Next type all the below commands one by one. Here I assume that your disk drive no is “Disk 1”.If you have Disk 2 as your USB flash drive then use Disk 2.Refer the above step to confirm it.
    So below are the commands you need to type and execute one by one:
    SELECT DISK 1
    CLEAN
    CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
    SELECT PARTITION 1
    ACTIVE
    FORMAT FS=NTFS

    after completing to 100 your pendrive will work

    I have the same problem: Pendrive appears in Computer folder, but can't access or format it.
    I did what you said, but I got an error message: "There is no media in the device."
    Can someone please help me? :(
