Default I need help please.. Jumpdrive prob

Hello, I am Kartik, New member to the forums

I have a problem. I have a nice LexarMedia 1 Gb JumpDrive and was working -PERFECTLY- this morning and now needs formatting, and when i attempt to format it, it simply says: "unable to format" What gives? I didn't damage it I'm 100% sure. Can someone explain whats going on? I tryed all different settings as well.. simply didn't work. My mum will kill me if she finds out I did something to the JumpDrive (they are expensive anyhow) PLEASE HELP!!
Cheers,
Scope

What kind of files you have on there? Delete everything off of the JumpDrive and try again. If still can't do it, reboot the PC. I also have a Lexar JumpDrive Pro too. Mine is a 512MB though and I did have a reformatting problem one time. It was empty so I didn't know why it wouldn't reformt. So I rebooted the PC and it worked. Wierd.

Holy crap, it may be damaged or screwed up. Are you getting the same error message on other PCs too? I have an Imation USB JumpDrive 1GB also and there's a program on there that will let you reformat and partition it. Is there a program like that on your LExar drive? Since you can't access it, I'm not sure if you can find out.
