I have just brought an 8Gb cruzer blade. When I put it in the computer it shows as Sandisk firebird 64Mb unformatted. When I try to format it gives an error reading. I have tried using partition master and it also cannot format this drive or show the correct drive size.
Using diskpart in windows also doesnt work.
How do I get this 8Gb drive formatted?

I have the same problem, i have tried with many programs, but it still not working. I also have a 8GB SanDisk Cruzer Blade Flash Disk. When i plug it into my PC, it appears with 0 Bytes, has no label, only "Removable Disk". When i try to explore it, windows show a message : "The disk in drive H is not formatted Do you want to format it now?", and so, when i try to format it, the progress bar is in the 100%, but a message appears: "Windows was Unable to complete the format", also, the capacity shown is 64 Mb. When i use the HP USB Format Tool, the device appears as "SanDisk FireBird 1.04(64Mb) ". How can i repair my USB?

You can try using the HP format tool in order to format the flash drive. You can refer to http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=197 for downloading the software.

I want to be the first to thank you very much. I tried everything to make it work and thought it was gone for good. I have a 8 GB Sandisk Cruzer and was doing a backup on a windows 7 and it totally stopped working. I couldn't see the files or format it in any way. I'm glad that I found this forum And thank you. My wife got it for me for Christmas and she was very sad to hear that it wouldn't work. Thank you so very very much!!!
