Hi all,


today i came around with a big problem, and i don't really know how to resolve it, i've tried everything so i came here to ask you guys if any of you could help me. Has you can see my usb flash drive isn't appearing and reporting that it has 0 bytes. I've tried formating with external software but even there it's says its has nothing.

Everything you need to know is in the picture, any more questions i will be active so i will reply to your comments and messages. (the computer idiom is in my language, something you dont understand ask me)

thank you.

Note: My usb flash drive is from Lexar, its has 4Gb and its was working since yesterday lol.

Hi there DennisSmith,

Could you tell me please, have you tested your pen drive on several PCs? Does it work there or is still unreadable? I don't know what steps have you been performing to access the USB but you could try these steps, if you haven't done it already:
1. Open command prompt
2. Type the following:
attrib -h -r -s /s /d X:\*.* Then hit "Enter" and wait about for some seconds
Be careful! Respect the spaces between words and script. Change the letter X with that has been assigned to the USB device on your PC (that you can see it in My Computer. It can be anything, depends on each computer.)
3. Finally, browse the flash drive and delete the recycle folder and if there is another one called "Autorun" you have to delete that too.

Let me know if that helped you.
