Hello, so...

I was wiping my computer clean (because of a virus, whoopee!) by reinstalling Windows XP. Y'know, when you load up from the disk and it lets you completely wipe your hard drive clean for a fresh installation? Well, it also wiped my jump drive that I foolishly let in my USB port DX

So, now here's what's happening. My computer says there's a removable disk...but when I click it, it says it ain't there. Any way to fix it? I've already retrieved the data from it, but I can't access it and use it. Is there anyway to fix that?

It may need to be formatted. Format it as FAT32, not NTFS.

I've tried formatting it...It won't even do that. It says there's basically nothing there.
