My Pen drive doesn't open but is detected!

#1 Post by Vickybond » 01 Aug 2012, 14:44

I brought a KINGSTON 16GB Data traveler, but I soon realized that it was a fake one. I used the pen drive rarely. All of a sudden the pen drive did not respond and did not open. When I insert the pen drive it is detected(status LED goes on) and the drivers are installed. But when I try to open the properties of the Pen drive It doesn't show the file system and nor the size of the disk, but it is detected as well as the drive is healthy in the Disk Management. The pen drive asks for formatting but fails to format even with the popup menu format as well as the Disk Management format. Please help me gain my pen drive back.
Waiting in anticipation :?

Did you check the size?
If you'd like to recover data from it's not advisable to reformat it.
Can you check the size of your pen drive in your disk management console?

If your pen drive is listed correctly in your disk management console, you can diagnose the boot sector.
Might be this procedure;
Start TestDisk, confirm at create a log with enter and select your affected disk.
Confirm at partition table type with enter also
Don't confirm at Analyse but Advanced.
Confirm at Boot.
Highlight Rebuild BS and hit Enter.
Rebuild your BS will be in progress.
Normally, it takes some minutes.
If it's finished, please post the infos or upload a screen.
If you see a menu List, please highlight it and press enter.
Please let me know, do you see your data or an error message.
To get back to the previous screen, easily press q for Quit.

Infos will follow.
