Hello all,
im having a nightmare here chaps, if someone can please help me out. I have been pulling my hair since morning trying to sort out my usb. Basically I was trying to use the windows7 usb tool and i had to use diskpart to format my usb. My usb seems to be in raw mode now, I have tried to format it in low level and it wont have it, I tried using the typical windows format and it wont do, the manage disk drives format and still it wont. Tried the HP usb format software, nothing, is there anyway i can format the usb key or is it a brick now.
Thanls

how you connect micro sdcard to the computer? sd card adaptor maybe locked? Did you try format from disk management?

Btw it's a freecom ii 16gb USB

Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management (on the left hand side, understorage)

Find the removable 14.94 GB (or something close to this) right click the box with lines through it and format.

Might give you an option to create a new volume this is almost identical to formatting as it will wipe the USB anyway.
