I have reason to believe that my PNY 128gb flash drive has become corrupt, and the primary partition has become damaged. I cannot format it, and every attempt to fails. It creates a spam of errors telling me to format it on my windows 7 computer, and on my windows 8 laptop, it reads as "Removable Disk (H:)", and flickers between a hard drive icon and a blank document file icon constantly. I cannot access it, I cannot right-click it without the menu immediately going away, and Disk Manager freezes every time the drive is plugged in to either computers. I would really like to use this flash drive, and I'm hoping it's not ruined beyond repair. Please help!

It's me the bad news bear. Your flash drive is damaged, unfortunately flash drives cannot be repaired.
