Hi all,

I tried the HDD low level format tool and HDD RAW copy tool a week ago and it worked well.

Yesterday i tried again and get the following error with all usb thumb drives :

I did not copy all because it's a very long list.

This is the error from HDD RAW copy :

This happens with all my thumb drives.

It looks lik it's not accessible for the programms.
In windows i can put files on the drive and format as normal.

Please anybody an answer for my problem ?

Thanks in Advance !

With kind regards.

Ries

You can use the windows long format. It will write to all the sectors in the disk, and the flash controller will distribute the writes to compensate for the wear leveling.

Maybe related to running software, antivirus, virus, even windows explorer opened to the disk you are trying to wipe.
