Flash Voyager 3.0 64 GB don't format/work anymore


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I have a USB Flash Voyager 3.0 drive, CMFVY3A-64GB, it doesn't work anymore.

Unfortunately I unplugged it too quickly :sigh!:


It is recognized under Windows 10 and ubuntu.

I can plug and unplug it but I can't format it and I can't write on it, I tried many things:


Under Windows:

- Tried to low format it, doesn't work

- Tried to fix it with the chkdsk command which returns errors:

chkdsk F: /f /r
An unspecified error occurred (696e647863686b2e 4d3).
An unspecified error occurred (6e74667363686b2e 1652)

- Tried the Diskpart command, doesn't work

- Tried the disk manager as well, doesn't work


Under ubuntu:

- Tried GParted to format it in FAT32 and NTFS, doesn't work, I get an I/O error

- Tried the commands:

sudo mkfs.vfat -I -F 32 /dev/sdc


sudo dosfsck -t -a /dev/sdc

Doesn't work !


So my question is:

Will a firmware flash restore my USB drive fully fonctionnal ?

In this case I don't know where to find the right firmware and how to flash the USB key...


I used Chip Easy to get more informations about this USB device but I don't know how to use them.

I tried to use FDisk included in Hiren's Boot CD

But the USB stick is not recognized.


Any suggestion will be more than welcome...

Hello Toasted,

Thanks for your answer and as this USB drive is still under warranty I'll do what you suggest.

Even if I would like to try all possibilites to fix it like flashing the firmware but, as I said before, I don't know where I can find it and flash it neither.

Je n'arrive pas à trouver le logiciel qui permet d'installer le micrologiciel de ma clé USB Corsair Voyager GT 3.0 64gb (VID = 1B1C PID = 1A01).

Elle a présenté une succession de problèmes et finalement, le controller de la clé semble effacé.

J'ai essayé Innostor 902E MP Package V208_01_B5 qui était proposé sur http://flashboot.ru/iflash/

Mais la clé USB n'est pas détectée par ce logiciel. Alors que je suis parvenu à la détecter sur Windows.

Auriez-vous la technique pour mettre le micrologiciel à jour sur cette clé USB Corsair, s'il vous plait.

Merci d'avance de votre aide.

Bien cordialement.



I can not find the software to install my Corsair Voyager GT 3.0 64gb USB flash drive (VID = 1B1C PID = 1A01).

But the USB key is not detected by this software. So I managed to detect it on Windows.

Would you have the technique to update the firmware on this Corsair USB stick, please.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Best regards.
