    First , you must right click on the removable disk corresponding to the location where USB has been inserted , then click the format " option . Or you can try to use the file system down to the bottom , where the options " FAT and FAT32 " available . Choose the FAT , it will reveal utilities format , then click the Quick format "option " press " Start " to launch operations format. In this way , all data that contains the USB will be deleted, but the errors , we hope to have disappeared. Usually , errors or malfunctions when transferring files or data storage. For disk errors , scanning and formatting may work again . In this way , all sectors of the defective USB works like new.

    Depending on the options, you must remove the re -installation of the operating system at this location . While it is still in progress , simply close and let others readers alone . Try resetting the computer to boot from disk instead of reader CD as before. If the stick is already used , it must now be detected in Windows. If you fail to make the OS re - install, then just continue following the installation instructions. However , never try to install the operating system on the USB disk.

    Before you spend your USB problems and try a few troubleshooting tips , all your saved files first, this task is something that should not be taken lightly . Although the formatting looks easy , it's a long process that must be done by someone who understands the application. If all else fails , take your warranty USB so you can repair from customer service.
