    I have an iVogue 256 MB USB2.0 pendrive from Jetdrive. I use Windows XP Professional. I once removed the pendrive without stopping it and after that I have not been able to copy anything to it or retrieve from it. When I tried formatting the pendrive I got a Windows error message 'Windows was unable to complete the format'. Please help make my pendrive alright!

    Try doing the format in Disk Management. You may have to remove the partition and recreate it before the format.

    :) Thank you John. I located the CD which came with the pendrive and was able to do a soft-format. The iVogue pendrive is working ok now.... Techbanger
