One day computer "A" told me my Sandisk Micro USB flash drive needed to be formatted but unfortunately windows could not complete the formatting. All other USB devices were working fine so I assumed the flash drive had just crapped out and I picked up a new one.
I inserted the new Verbatim Store N' Go into computer "B" and everything worked fine. I then inserted it into computer A and it gave me the same error as the Sandisk did and of course it could not format it. I tried it at computer B again and the formatting process completed and it worked as normal. Then tried computer A again and of course it needed formatting and the computer couldn't do it.
I googled it, tried a bunch of different things such as formatting as NTFS instead of FAT and uninstalling the device but nothing worked.
So basically one of my computers is rendering flash drives as unformatted and cannot format them. I really need flash drives to work on this computer, does anyone have any idea of what could be causing this?
I am running fully updated versions of XP.
Thank you again
