Just tried it - no success: "formatting failed". The stick is gone apparently :(

I have had a usb3 stick die on me, I got it back from a friend, went to delete the content and it gave up the ghost, tried everything but it was stone dead so I eventually threw it out.

You could try the command line version of format. Maybe that will suppress the message loop or at least give you some readable error information.

This one had shown signs of fatigue for a while - recognised only on 2nd or 3rd attempt etc. No brand name on the outside, but I liked its shape. Well... just ordered a SanDisk Ultra Fit 3.0 32GB. Enough for all my sources :biggrin:

@nidud: I tried that but no luck. That drive is gone :(

I just grabbed 2 x 32 gig USB2 drives from my local post office for $10.0 AUD each, formatted the first one and benchmarked it and it runs at a very respectable 38 meg/sec. I need a coupe of these older ones as I get video from Youtube for an old bloke who is a friend of mine so he can watch things that he would not normally have access at.

It's probably dead jj. Maybe if you want to try one more thing, it would be a good idea to try to fix it in a different O.S environment (linux, gnu/linux or whatever of those ones) with tools provided for those environments.   :icon_exclaim:

At the small price for most "Sticks",not really worth it to try to revive one,because they could die if you used them for serious data use.
Better to burn your data on a CD or DVD

Try plugging a USB stick in when the room is dark, quite often you will see a flash as the connection is made. A lot of drives and/or ports aren't very well insulated, the flash is the electricity killing the drive  :(

>Better to burn your data on a CD or DVD
I've burned a DVD and accidentally left it in the car on a hot sunny day. That was enough to erase it.
I can walk on water but stagger on beer.

But that has more to do with Your forgetting ,than to the use of CD/DVD'S for saving data. If I drop one in a toaster,that is my BAD! :icon_rolleyes: :icon_redface:

You might consider clay tablets to record your data,they seem to last for 1000nds of years. :biggrin:

Looks fairly reliable :t

Can you give me a rough estimate how many clay tablets I need for my 5,041 assembler sources?

hutch,

Reminds me of a joke.

Mel Brooks said " God gave the jews 15 commandments".  "Moses then tripped, and God gave them 10 commandments".
