    Default Please insert a disk into Drive E :

    I recently bought a 4Gb USB stick and initially it seemed to work fine. However, one day when I plugged it into my laptop, when I tried to access it, it came up saying following errors,

    Errors :

    1)I cannot format the pendrive.
    2)when i double click on the removable disk,it says
    Please insert a disk into Drive E : "
    3)i used a pendrive format utility but the problem persists again.
    4)i tried to format it using gnome also,but of no use.


    The light on the USB stick is on, and I can see it in my computer, but I can not access it as it gives me the same error message. I have tried to google this and I have played around with the drivers in device manager, but to no avail. I am using XP Pro (SP3) and usually have no problems with USB devices.

    please help me..without going to service centres.

    USB DEVICE NAME : Transcend JF V 10 ( 4 GB )

    Check the pendrive in another computer.If it works try connecting it to different USB slot.

    Hey even i faced a similar problem.. were u able to format the pen drive through dos mode?? or some other mode? (like linux)
    I highly doubt the boot sector i.e the first 4KB which holds some vital info abt the pen drive is corrupted.

    it may be a virus. Even if u pullout the pendrive during a data transfer it may become corrupted.. give ur updates..

    hi optimus prime. Ananth posted that when he tried to use his flash mem Windows asked him to "insert disk in drive E:" ; you replied it's a virus, you had the same problm. Well, me too. How did you get rid of the virus? Could you save the flash info? thanks in advance.
