So, here's the problem. As far as I remember, I left a large file transfer to my USB drive running while I was out and when I came back, I found my USB drive on the table. Someone probably unplugged it while using the computer, but it was during the data transfer process and now when I insert the drive, it shows "no media" error, and "write-protected" error and similar things. I tried using HP USB Disk Repair Utility and it shows the same error, I tried using Parted Magic, still can't access the USB. Is there a solution for this? Thanks for the help!

Guys, after a month of research last year I found no solution for corrupt USB drives, but today I found the solution, which should work for all USB Drives with "no media", "write protected" related errors. Here is the solution: http://www.flashdrive-repair.com/2014/02/best-usb-flash-drive-repair-software-recovery-format.html

Very nice find A6Tech. In fact I am going to reference your link in another thread. Hopefully it will work for the OP.

Thanks mate, it would be good if there was a software like that, maybe one day I'll make a software with it's own database and AIO features for any kind of USB failure.

It was just pointed out by bludgard here that some of those links will get hijacked with multiple windows opening in IE.

 

Edit:I downloaded one from the MediaFire link and it seemed to go okay, I used Firefox with NoScript, Adblock, and Ghostery.
