reflash usbdisk


Hi,
These memory disks are not repairable if the HARDWARE goes bad. Can only be tried to repair if bad on software side. Please give some more detail of the problem, like:
1: Is it accesible by computer.
2: Does it show any capacity.
3: Does it go very HOT or not after plugging in the system.
Raza

how to fix a bad memory disk

Windows should be able to reformat the drive which will restore the file system. The FAT table can get scrambled by unplugging the drive while it is in the middle of being accessed.

Several programs on the WEB will make the USB a boot device. However, this is not usually necessary.

If you want to do a low-level format, then you need info on exactly whose controller is providing the interface and you need to get that company to give you their initialization code. Usually, they will not do this. They either tell you to return it for reprogramming or to buy another one.

Within these devices, there is a controller chip that sits between the USB port and the actual flash chips. This controller chip is what mimics the FAT file system. The code within the controller chip is not readable, even on a good flash.

Some drives have a software password feature. If the user set the password and then forgot it, then there is no real solution. Formatting will fail under that situation since they are protecting against rogue user from wiping people's files. The manufacturer most likely has a back-door to reset the password or get into the drive. However, they will not share this info as it defeats the purpose of the password.

These devices are really the new "floppy disk". When they work, great! When the stop working, discard them. If very important data is on the drive, then get ready to spend lots of money for the manufacturer to try and retrieve it.
