Hello,

Try this 1

1) Try to perform a low-level format.

Open "My Computer" --> Right-click on your pen drive --> Format --> Uncheck

the check box (Remove the tick mark) "Quick Format" --> Click on Start.

2) If the problem still exists then right-click on your pen drive --> Properties -->

Click on "Tools" tab --> Under "Error-checking", click on "Check Now" button.

In "Check Disk" window, select "Automatically fix system file error" and "Scan for

and attempt recovery of bad sectors" options and click on "Start" button.

Note : If you are using the NTFS file system for your pen drive then make sure you

click on your USB drive icon in notification area and select "Safely remove USB

Mass Storage Device"

Good Luck
