Please edit your post. Remove your Email address and add some detail. What drive are you trying to format? Your system drive, another internal drive, an external HDD, or a flash drive? The answer can be different, depending.

If it's a new USB flash drive, there is a lovely utility to make sure that it is not "short" of memory. If it's advertised as 16 GB, but only has 8 GB, the format will fail.

Got it. It starts formatting, but cannot complete it?

Two questions, then a suggestion. What file system are you formatting it to? How far did Windows get?

The suggestion: Check the drive with h2testw. Go right to the source, if you can handle enough German to download it: http://www.heise.de/download/h2testw.html . Or get it anywhere that refers to it, like http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneou... . Note that I am not endorsing softpedia.
