Problem in formatting pen drive

by Abhishek Bhatnagar on June 26, 2008

Trouble:

We have received many problems mentioning that they are not able to format their pen drives. Some of them have written that the pen drive capacity displayed is not correct.

 

When they try to format the pen drive, Windows Shows error "Can not format the pen drive". There can be more than one reasons behind such problems, some of the common problems are:

pen drive formatting problem

1. Virus or trojan infection.

2. Corrupted flash chips on the pen drive (hardware fault)

3. Fake pen drives ! (Many such drives are there in the markets, beware)

 

Lets see what to do to fix the issues.

Fix:

 

Virus or trojan infections:

 

 

Virus or trojans can run some process that keeps running in background. This not only harms the computer, but also prevents the pen drive from formatting as it shows that the drive is in use. Remove and re-insert the pen drive, don’t double click on drive and cancel autorun operations if it starts automatically. Run a virus scan on pen drive, this will help fix the issue. Now format the pen drive.

Always take precautions while using pen drives on other computers. See the some of our posts below on protecting your pen drive from viruses:

 

Corrupted flash chips on pen drive:

 

 

If the pen drive is not detected at all, or shows a less capacity, then there are high chances that its a chip corruption. Flash chips are the actual hardware components that save the data. A physical or electrical or electromagnetic damage to these chips make the pen drive faulty. This can happen because of voltage fluctuations and faulty USB ports. In such case, get the flash drive replaced if its under warranty as it can not be fixed otherwise.

 

Fake pen drives:

 

 

Sounds a bit un-believable but true. There are a lot of pen drives in the market which are of very cheap quality which are fake copies of some known brands. Beware of such pen-drives. Always purchase pen-drives or memory-cards from a reliable source with bill and warranty to avoid any mess later.

 

We hope the information provided above will help.

I have a 16GB pen drive which I bought in Dubai.
The problem is- when I insert the pen drive,computer recognizes it but as when I try to access it a message box appears saying : (Drive is not accessible !-Incorrect function ! )

And when I right clicked the drive to “format” no further action is processed.Nothing happens ,no progress is shown neither any dialog box appears.

I look forward to hearing from you

Pen Drives/Flash Drives.
A Bit more information on Fakes etc.
There are many many companies in the Far East that can offer services to other bulk buyers, of producing various levels of fakes at different prices. Yes, its true. A friend of mine who owns his own computer business has had this service offered by a few.
I have bought (unwittingly) fakes and counterfeits on EBay (whom will do nothing about it).
I have been informed by Trade And Standards that all Eastern countries are considered as suspect by government and other enforcement services. Are they interested in dealing with this issue. No, was their reply. Can’t cope with it as everyone does not have enough staff to deal with it. So, there you have it. Simple answer, don’t by cheap and especially not from abroad.
You have no real legal rights, with what you have, how would you get your money back after sending the item/items back to the seller. What’s more. Sending back counterfeits and the alike could lead you to some serious investigations being done on yourself. It would be considered that it was you that were re-circulating these items back into the market place, a ‘catch 22′ situation. Not something one wants to get involved with. Stay clear. Watch Internet sellers and compare prices seriously. Most know what the normal retail price is, what a sale price is and what sounds a bit too cheap.

Run the following command in command prompt in admin mode.

DiskPart
List Disk ( this will show you all list of disks )
select disk 1 (select your disk)
create partition primary
select partition 1
active

then you can right click on pen drive and format it through UI.
