:smiley:   Hi Benben,

Dear member of SanDisk Community, welcome.

Friend, I suppose, that tested your UFD (Cruzer Blade 32 GB) in other PCs, to discard problems of your PC.

1-      In Start / My PC, on the UFD icon, click the right mouse button, and then click in Properties/Tools/Error Checking and Repair.

2-      If your UFD, is still bad or is showing that the file system is Raw, this means the partition is corrupt or missing.

         For formatting the UFD, you will first need to create a new partition or logical drive on the UFD.

2.1-   In Start / My PC / Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Computer Management / Disk Management:

2.2-   Right-click unallocated or Raw space on the UFD where you want to create the partition.

         And then click New Partition (Win XP) or New Simple Volume (WVista, W7 and W8).

2.3-   In the New Partition Wizard, click Next.

2.4-   For the partition or volume size use the default settings, which will create a single partition on the UFD. Click Next.

2.5-   Assign, a drive letter for the UFD. Select a drive letter that is not being used by another unit.

2.6-   Choose, the file system Fat32. Click Next.

2.7-   Click Finish, to complete partitioning and formatting the UFD.

3-     If the above steps have not solved the problem, do not grieve more, contact SanDisk Technical Support who will replace the device, if it’s authentic and is within warranty. Link:

Luck, and then you tell us, what happened, please.
