I have a Kingston 8GB flash drive that was formatted, then a friend of mine formatted it again (for whatever reason) now Windows won't recognize it. Even though properties says the device is working properly, it comes up as an addition port *in Vista* and a drive. I can't format it, explore it, scan it, nothing. It tells me it has no space used or allocated.
The error I received from Avast! when I attempted to scan it was "I/O Device error. Nr(1117)", did some research and saw that ties into the sectors and possibly hardware issues. Any advice.
