Corsair Flash survivor 16GB format problem / corrupted

My Mem stick is only 4 months old.

 

It has been working fine... I came home and plugged it in meaning to continue work and Win 7 64 Bit told me it needed formatting... I left it formatting all night... but still the same message.

 

I used the Dos prompt format instruction as per the FAQ's here... another all night job.

 

Still Windows demands I format it.

 

The light flashes on and off and when formatting it is continuous.

 

Is it dead?

 

I cannot use FDisk - as posted at the top of this forum - I have no floppy drive.

 

Any help?

 

TIA

Thanks Yellowbeard

 

I appreciate you comming back on this.

 

However you reminded me of something Blind Pugh once told me about... I am going to try it with Hirens Boot CD - I had forgotten about that... He mentioned it in the Pub in Portsmouth one night... before he killed the customers. (I guess you remember).

 

I will come back here and let you know how I got on.

 

Thanks again

Harvey "Blind" Pew: It sounded as though there was a bit of a squabble.

Moon: Squabble? They're all dead!

Harvey "Blind" Pew: Oh! Must have been more of a tiff then.

 

Let us know ::pirate::

Hi Yellow Beard

 

Well 'Hirens Boot CD' was a dream - burn and boot no messing.

 

I ran SuperFDisk and it found no errors on the mem stick. However using a number of formatting tools (Acronis Disk Director being one) under 'MS' Dos was unsuccessful. They all reported errors toward the end of the process.

 

Windows 7 64 bit and Win XP 32 bit both demand I reformat the drive and both fail to achieve this.

 

Do you reckon the mem stick is stuffed.

 

(Great quote by the way)

 

Thanks
