I've been using this thumb drive for quite a long time, but after i stop using for awhile i cant access the thumb drive anymore.

Everytime i try to access it says 'The disk in drive G is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?"

Click "Yes", error message will appear "The disk in drive G cannot be formatted"

Click "No", nothing happen.


When i view the properties of my thumb drive, it reads
0bytes free space 0bytes used space, capacity 0bytes

Type: Removable Disk
File System: RAW

Thanks for the reply Jamey,

i've check my thumbdrive and it does not by any means have a locking switch. So that brings the problem to the corruption of the partition. Anyway to resolve this? For your info, this thumbdrive of mine doesen't come with any driver or if have, i've misplace it as it's been a long time ago stuff. I hope there's still means of revival ways for my precious thumbby :)
