Hello all, I am on the verge of sending my USB drive to the trash bin. I'm posting my problem here to see if my USB can still be fixed or if it's really doomed.

All the errors messages I've seen:

1) USB is detected and can be seen in My Computer as "Removable Disk (F:)" [But should read as MICROMAX (F:)]

2) Double-clicking will give the error message : "Please insert disk into drive F:"

3) Attempt in formatting will give the error message: "There is no disk in drive F. Insert a disk, and then try again"

4) In Disk Management:
Disk 1
Removable (F:)
No Media

5) Device Properties, under Disk drives, shows that the device (USB MEMORY BAR USB Device) is working properly, but there are no information listed in the Volumes tab. Everything is blank.

6) "Cannot open volume for direct access" in MS DOS.

7) Tried several USB Recovery Programs (HP, Ulocker, Sandisk, etc.) to no avail.

Have you tried this drive in another computer?

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