I have a usb and there is some problem with it.
I was trying to open this USB but it shows that the disk is not formatted.
When i try to format, a box opens and shows that my USB is write protected. But my USB has no write protection.
When i open the properties of the USB, it shows that 100% of my USB space is used and the file system is RAW.
My OS is Win XP

Plzzzzz help me......
Urgent.....

What kind of drive are you referring to, an external hard drive, flash drive, memory stick?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

It has always been my experience that the symptoms you describe are due to a defective drive.
Try using it in a couple of other systems to see if it behaves the same way. If it fails on them as well, it's probably done.
