Usb Flash Drive not working
hi, recently my friend bought a 16gb flash drive off ebay and when it arrived it didn't work. instead of sending it back they asked me to try and fix it for them, thats where the problems lie.
I plug it into the computer, it appears in explorer but no size is displayed. when trying to open it, it just keeps loading forever until you take it out. i tried formatting it with a windows disc but all i did was turn it into a "RAW" partion. i tried to properly format it again with the same windows xp disc and it just hangs. i tried formatting with with a windows 7 disc as well and no difference. i tried formatting it with CMD and after half an hour I gave up. help!
