I have a 32GB USB Pen Drive which has gone dead (USB drive unusable, unformattable, and reporting 0 bytes capacity). It is not accessible through any OS. When I insert it into my Windows machine and try to open it, it pops up the following message
"There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive X."
I've tried almost everything, but can't fix it. What I've tried until now:
- Change Drive Letter and Path - http://www.verbatim.com/index/support.php?cat=14&action=support_questions&pid=5467&aid=165
- Re-installed the USB Controllers in windows
- Tried changing the DisableOnSoftRemove vale in regedit - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2830154
- Tried a number of software utilities for windows that helps in force formatting a pen drive.
Further, I tried using the Disks program from the dash as well (in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS). It shows up my USB Flash drive when I plug it in, but I can't format it or mount it anyhow. Here are the screenshots for the same:- When I Click on the Edit Mount Options, the following Windows pops up:
Is there any way I can recover my Pen Drive back?
PS:- I do not want the contents, just I want to make my USB drive work again.
