i tried the normal format process but it doesn't complete the process, i also tried command, that is; format F: /fs:fat32 , this process formats but when it requres drive name and i type it say bad sector! is it really dead?
hey guy all i can say is that ur flash has lost its filing system and raw filing systems cannot be formated and neither can chkdsk utility work on it. all u need to do is to get it converted back to FAT32. I dont know how u are gonna do it because am in the same scenario en am trying to do that. i will update u incase of any success. kokas allan, UCU, Mukono, UGANDA
Is there something important on this drive?
Apparently, the RAW format problem only can be resolved by re-formatting.
However, if you have stored something important on this drive, you have to recover it at the aid of a reliable recovery tool before the formatting. If you have no idea about the recovery stuff, you could try a free RAW drive recovery tool that has helped my friend recover his inaccessible videos, pictures and files from his RAW drive. He has got back all his data. You should try it!
As to the format it, you could try my way:
Right click “My Computer” =>Select “Manage”=> Choose “Disk Management” => Right click your drive on the list => format it.
You'd better search some format software to help you.
