I was wondering what this adata type usb is for. I stole it thinking it was a memory but when I got home I noticed it had two types of heads. The regular USB and the mini usb commonly used to for cell phones. When I plug it in it has its drivers the pc reads it but theres nothing there. Like it doesnt have a memory. I thought about returning but then I figured first I want to find out whats it for. It has me wondering. I thought about formatting it but I cant. I then thought it was for charging batteries or something. It could just be a memory but just that its damaged. I noticed it also doesnt have its memory size on display like they usually do.

If it's a little golden thing then it is just a USB stick that supports both USB A and USB C, some machines don't have USB A these days. I am either guessing it has some fault or bad sectors if it can't be read by your machine, or it could be formatted for Mac which generally have USB C these days. You should just return though as it's not your and it is obviously of no use to you.
