    I forgot to remove my flash drive while formatting my PC. When Im done, I wonder why my flash drive wont work anymore. I think this is also formatted together with my hard drives. And maybe its internal program is also deleted that is why it cant be used anymore. Can I load a program to this thing so that it will function again? And if you have this programmer,can I ask for it? Thanks.

    Does it still show up in the drive list when you plug it in (assuming this is not a Mac)? If so, can you save a file to it? Don't see why a Format C: command would bother a flashdrive in as drive F.

    What version of windows are you using? Does anything happen at all when the device is plugged in? Have you tried your device in another pc?

    Since you say you were formatting the drive, were you reloading the OS? If so, did all the motherboard drivers get reloaded? Does the Device Manager say it is happy with the state of all the hardware resources?
