Hello,

I recently purchased a 40 gb pendrive (Kingston) . I tried to format it, but during formatting its file system changed into RAW from NTFS and not formatted at all. It is not opening at all, showing the "disk is not formatted". When I am triyng to format it in NTFS it is showing pendrive cannot be formatted. I have also tried HP USB disk storage format tool 2.06 but it still not working in any format NTFS, FAT or FAT32.

Please helpme to overcome this problem.

hello,

just try to get a software called parted magic. its linux based and you should easily format the pen drive there.

alternatively what you can do is to try to get a pc loaded with linux on and then format it there
