Hello!
I have a problem with an USB that worked fine till yesterday and I was hoping you guys can help me out.
When I connect the usb,it does not let me connect to it in my computer,sometimes doesn t appear at all and shows errors.I have a link to several photos of the problem.
The solutions that i tried so far and failed:
1.Changing usb ports
2.Diskpart in cmd ----list disk---select disk---clean (error shown in photos)
3.Disk management----new partition (error shown in photos)
4.Event log (photo)
5.Programs like easeus partition master don't even see it.
6.Tried formating it on another computer but it s the same
I thought that it might have broke but when i plugged it in my tv the damn thing worked.It really doesn't like laptops.
 
 
Also the usb is a Kingston DT 101 G2 16GB
Laptop is Acer 5742ZG
4GB ram
Intel Pentium P6200 2.13 Ghz
Nvidia 610m 1 GB
500GB HDD

Windows 8.1

Please run diskpart and provide the output of list disk with the USB attached. Are you trying to recover data from this device? I do not understand why images show both M: and F: as the device.

It probably changed its letter,as for what I'm trying to do..I'm trying to get it to work,so I can acces it from my laptop.

When I create a new volume in disk management it also shows that.And in cmd it shows this:

I think there is a hardware problem with the flash drive. Clean should have completed without an error.

 

What happens when you run diskpart and type the following commands

list disk
select disk 1
create partition primary
format fs=ntfs quick
assign letter=F

Does it error out when creating the partition?

The only thing I can think of is to use a bootable Partition Manager like Gparted. You first need to pick the device in the upper right dropdown box. Make sure you are doing the operations on the USB flash drive and not your hard disk. If it detects the flash drive then create a new partition table under Device. But, I think your USB flash drive has failed.

 

 Burn the iso to a CD by right clicking on any Windows 7 or later computer and selecting Burn Disk Image

Like Easeus you need to click Apply before the steps complete. 

 

Was this USB every attached to a non-windows computer?

I'll let you know when I'm done,thanks!

As for being used on a non windows,the answer is no.I didn't use it on a non window recently.About 2 months ago i used it on a kali linux but it stopped working today in the morning.I plugged it in ,the antivirus detected a w32.worm.zeothfu with a weird name,something like aaaasaabbbceeeeaaaaaaaaa.exe.dll and then it stopped.

Ok so I ran into a problem with Gparted "5.338022] Failed to find cpu0 device node"

And I also observed that the usb appears in bios boot menu so it might not me broken"

I think the gparted problem might be solved if i use a sdcard instead of a cd.

Try Rufus with the Gparted iso file. You need a spare USB flash drive. Also Gparted may have failed if SecureBoot is enabled. Make sure SecureBoot is disabled in UEFI settings if you have it. You first need to set a supervisor password before SecureBoot can be disabled. Keep the password simple. 

 

Tapping F12 at boot lets you select a boot device but this option must be enabled in your UEFI settings.
