Ok, no problem.

There is a small nice software that is so helpful in such a case, which is: HDD LLF Low Level Format. Download it, then low-level-format your USB flash drive, then format it again normally using windows format tool.

This will most probably resolve your problem.

I forgot to say that after you LLF your USB drive, do not use windows quick format, just use the full format

Ok guys, about this topic, if your device is showing 0mb, and you cant format it with diskpart , or drive manager ... its probably broken.... But, you can try something else... Since microchips don't burn so easy, you can try and open your usb and clean the board, and the space between the pins of the microchip. Maybe some dust or something wet is stuck between the pins and is causing the device to not work. Take some brush, and alcohol (if you dont have anything better), and clean the chips (especially between the pins of the microchips), and make sure you cleaned them good! Hope this helps, it worked for me lots of times...

I tried every possible solution that I could find on the internet, I mean everything and no go. I downloaded numerous USB format utilities, but nothing. Then I downloaded Jetflash application below and it actually worked and saved myself a 16GB memory stick. I was nervous at first about a virus, but I scanned the file before and scanned my computer after and everything was ok and working fine. I also did not have a transcend flash drive, but a Centon Datastick Pro. I hope this helps people.
