I have brought an 8Gb cruzer blade 2 month ago . but now 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.
I had the same problem, but i installed ubuntu (dualboot between windows 7 and ubuntu), then looked around tills i found a hardware manager(i dont remember what that thingy was called), and i clicked on a label with my usb name, then i formatted it from there… and then when i booted windows, the usb had no problem… it was like… new.
