I have a Transcend 1GB pen drive which was working perfectly forthe last one year. Now a strange thing happens. The moment I insert the pen drive in the USB port, the computer flashes a blue screen and Immediately goes for a restart. After restart, if the pen drive is still kept inserted, the BSOD comes again and the cycle of restart keeps going on and on till the pen drive is removed from the slot. The BSOD message says BAD_POOL_HEADER.
Please note that it is just the mere insertion of the pen drive that generates the BSOD and restart. I do not even get a chance to access the folder. I have tried with this pen drive on several desktops/laptops but in all cases it gives the same result.
I understand that this is probably due to the pen drive that has gone bad.
Please advise if it is possible to revive the pen drive to its former useful nature.
