Default Flash Voyager 8gig Died maybe

Hey I got an 8gig flash voyager usb2.0. And it was working great for the first couple of weeks, but all of a sudden it didn't want to mount every time I plugged it in.

And then when it does mount in Vista, it shows up as "Removable Disk" rather than "Corsair"

And the blue light has stopped coming on at all. When I try to open the drive through my computer it tells me that it needs to be formatted, but it also says that it is unable to format the drive when I try to format it.

Did my flash drive die already?

Thanks so much for your help.

Please try and format the drive with the Format utility from the SD-CARD Organization. Then run the test again and see if that helps.
If you still have problems we can get it or them replaced, please use the RMA request found in TSXpress or follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!
