Hi all, I'm new to the forums but I have some excellent news for which has taken me an entire day to find. And these forums are my #1 source of info, so decided to post here.


There was literally no obvious solutions to this problem that I could find. So here goes...



Problem: A 16gb usb drive of mine became unreadable after I used it as a bootable usb, and my computer then detected it as some sort of disk drive... The small LED on it pulsed slowly rather than its usual solid glow.

I thought I could simply reformat the drive but no, I could not format it.. Or partition it.. Or read anything on it or access it at all. (even in disk management in admin controls)

When I try to double click on it/explore/open it it just said "Please insert disk into Removable Disk F:" or similar. and properties showed a volume of 0 bytes, and when I used cmd to try and manually format/partition etc it told me "no media found" on the disk... There was seemingly no fix.

I thought it was gone forever. And everywhere I looked did not help. (I wasted my whole afternoon on this instead of studying for physics101 haha.)

Anyway... THERE IS A FIX which I recently stumbled across and want to help everyone else.

There is an online recover program by Transcend and it uses internet access to somehow repair the USB (don't ask me how it works, but it did, so I'm happy).

So here's what to do:

So if you have the same error and could not repair it manually at all, follow these steps:

Download: JetFlash Online Recovery from http://www.transcend-info.com/Products/online_recovery_...
simply put in an email address and country (don't even need to put your own email here)

Run the .exe that you just downloaded.

choose the drive size and click next. It will find and repair the drive for you...

and viola! Brand new, properly formatted USB.


Worked for me when all else failed. (and I mean, I tried EVERYTHING.)



I hope that helps a lot of people who are as frustrated as I was.

Cheers,
James.
