No data needed to recover...I gave up on that. I went to cmd and diskpart, chose the proper disk (0 and it shows no available space btw) tried to repair, create volume, partition or anything and I keep getting "there is no disk selected". Is it nine dollars fried down the toilette? Thanks

I am assuming this is a USB flash drive. When attached does the drive show as RAW in Disk Management? Is it a generic or do you have a make and model of the USB?

It's a verbatim usb yes. Windows disk management detects it, but everything else doesn't.

To answer the second question, it doesn't say raw. File system is blank space. No NTFS, no FAT etc. Thankls

Does the USB drive have a drive letter assigned to it in Disk Management? If not, assign a drive letter

 

If the drive is a Verbatim Store and Go then it's possible the drive had a password protection partition that was corrupted. See this Verbatim FAQ.
