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
Go to control panel
go to administrative tools
go to computer management
go to disk management on the selected drive right click then format
next select on the file system fat32
it is the best for that


Thank you all my Friends

It is not wroking... tell me another way...plz
some step same as above:
go to control panel
go to administrative tools
go to computer management
go to disk management

now, if you see an unallocated disk which would b yur pd,
right click that "unallocated"
then click create "new volume" or just like that.
now a wizard will be start ........in b/w you will be asked to format ......format in fat 32 file sys.
