I have a problem with my Cruzer Blade - it simply won’t open. I still have a hope to fix it as computer recognizes it once it’s plugged in. I have opened disk manager and drive is visible there, however there is no partition inside and file system is somehow turned into RAW… It is impossible to format the drive. Tried various solutions to format the drive and it didn’t work:
HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool - once trying to format it gives error “Device Media is write-protected” (tried to change the settings in registry to disable the write protection but it still comes with same error all the time)
Tried to clean the drive using Diskpart and it gives error stating “There is no media in the device”. Drive status is “No media” instead of “Connected” and size displayed is 0 B.
CHKDSK doesn’t work and gives error “CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives”
Other tools give error “1117 I/O error” when trying to access the drive
Any ideas guys?
