This process rendered the drives completely unusable and unable to be formatted. The drive properties show: Removable Disk File system: Unknown Used space 0 bytes Free space 0 bytes Capacity 0 bytes. The Volumes tab shows: No Media Partition style: Opening the Disk Management component of the Computer Management console shows that the drive is connected, but there is no unallocated space to partition or format.
Other things about the disk look normal. It shows up in the Device Manager as working correctly, without any warnings, for example. I Googled around and found that many, many people were running into this problem where the drive starts reporting 0 bytes capacity and can not be formatted. Of the dozens of pages that I read, no one found a fix for the problem.
The most common solution offered was to return the drive to the manufacturer for replacement. I tried the free trial of the utility from http: Maybe the full version could have done more, but I put that on the back burner. Then I had an idea. I had a clean drive that had escaped my earlier bungling. I plugged it in, copied the contents to my desktop and tried to run the U3 LaunchPad software.
Nothing happened, so I started looking more closely at the files. One of the files was called SanDiskFormatExtension.
Now I just needed to figure out how to run the SanDisk installer to reformat the drive. I tried all of the. Just as I was running out of options, I opened the autorun.
So, with nothing to lose, I pasted http: I followed a few prompts and lo, the U3 Launchpad Installer software launched and restored the drive to its factory settings of 2 GB capacity formatted as FAT. It even replaced the original U3 files, making it truly good-as-new. Note that the page at http: There are also a number of good ideas in the comments below, so definitely read through them for more options. Wow thank you it works! Thanks for this tip, but sadly the installer detects that my drive is not a Sandisk drive and refuses to run.
If anyone finds a solution for a 4GB Maxell Retractor then please post it! Their website only seems to have win98 drivers on it. I had a same problem with kingston 8 GB pen drive.

Tried both methods but unfortunately they did not work for my brand new kingston 8 gig…. I want to add one folder on pen drive that should not be removed when anyone format pen drive.

If so then how? Autplay progress window shows files exist on drive. Was then able to copy all files to another drive. What happened is the part of the memory that tells the computer how to access the drive and how big the drive is got corrupted. Just so you know, I only tested this on a Verbatim 8 Gb drive that had the exact same problems you described.
Super Stick Recovery Tool Rocks! For Transcend USB, use this tool: Thanks for the help, but none of these worked for me. What did work was the following. Win 7 HP v 4G Thumb drive. Open Command Prompt with admin rights. Then type in cmd. You will see a text block saying version number. Takes a second depending on number of drives.
My thumb drive was Disk 4 with my other four drives before it. You can also see the total size as well as free space for each drive. While the windows manager displayed a 0 bytes, 0 free. Thank you very much, GreyGrue! When I click the link, it states I need admin rights, my account is an admin account, please help? Thanks GreyGrue and to all here — seems a combination of all of the above got my cruzer back. I tried all of the methods mentioned here, no one works for me.

My Lacie Moskeyto 8gb has died just after two days of use! I tried it on at least 10 different computers — without success.
On one computer, the error was that the device was unrecognised, and all the other nine computers asked me to insert a disk. I tried putting it in gladwrap in the freezer overnight.
I tried to delete some of the crap, and it kept giving me error messages, but something seemed to be happening. I was still in Disk Management by the way. Eventually, it fired up and checked the C drive, then it fired up again and checked the F drive.
Before it was just Removable Disk, now it had a proper name — albeit Generic. I went in, and saved what I could, deleted what it would let me delete, and then did a quick format, and then did a full format. Now it all seems to work fine again. I hope this helps some other bugger. I have the same problem with my 8 GB Trekstor Stick 0 free o used. But I need the files badly so I cant try out the experiments above…Could anybody help me?
