Hello,
A friend of mine insisted on formating my usb (kingston 8 gb) memory which was OK. He used a program called something like `bionce`. There were options like FAT 32 and so on. I suppose he filled in a wrong one. Now it does not work and cannot be formated :(  .
Please help, :(

What exactly does "it cannot be formatted" mean?

With the drive plugged in, try Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Storage > Disk Management. Toward the bottom of the screen there should be a stripe somewhere for your flash drive. Right click on that stripe and go to Format. Make sure you pick NTFS and check "quick format."

Obligatory Warning: MAKE SURE YOU USE THE STRIPE FOR YOUR FLASH DRIVE. IF YOU DO THIS ON THE WRONG DRIVE YOU WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR DATA ON THAT DRIVE.

All of the above ^ + just make sure its not write protected. There is a switch on the card against accidental erase.

Turn it off. If that's the case.
