Dear Rulph

Any pendrive has name at the back of it just type the name of the manufacture of the pendrive by using Google

I can not format my flash disk?
hi dear
if the flash disk dose not let u access to it. try formatting it, if the formatting dose not complete change the computer and make sure there are no viruses on the machine ur using. if it insist, then try to contact a technician or check if there is any button on the flash disk then unswitch it and try formatting again.
