Hi Shourovalamin,

Unfortunately the I/O error may indicate a serious connectivity issue or a drive problem. Is there any problem when trying to use other pendrives? If not, test your pendrive on another PC or a TV and check results. Do you have important data stored on the drive? If so, you really should try using a Linux PC or a Linux Live CD. Sometimes Unix based systems show better results recognizing drives with connectivity problems. If the drive is not recognized on another PC and not even on Linux, sadly you may need to get a new one.

Hope this helps

I try this out first, maybe it will help:
  • This process will wipe anything on the drive*

Open an elevated command prompt (right click cmd.exe and run as administrator)

Type these commands

"diskpart"

"list disk"

"select disk #" The # refers to the USB drive, you should be able to see which is which
based on the size listed

"clean"

"create partition primary"

"exit"
