I have an 8GB Sandisk USB flash drive, relatively new. Recently when transferring some files there was an error and the drive could not be opened, so I tried to format the drive. The Windows utility could not format the disk, so I have since tried using the command prompt and various file format commands:
Each time I get the following results:
Insert new disk for drive F:
and press ENTER when ready...
The type of the file system is RAW.
The new file system is FAT. (or whatever I tried)
Error in IOCTL call.
Its the final line that has got me stumped.
I've had a search and cant find any solution, so I was wondering if anyone else has come across this, and whether anyone knows of a way to solve the problem.
Im on Windows 7. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
