    Hello welcome to the Forum.

    one note----- for a faster response to your problem---
    no IM CHAT lingo please.

    are you saying that you have a--
    jet flash jf v30 2GB usb thumb drive ?????

    a program that you ether used to access the drive or has written data to the
    drive has placed a block on the drive so you can't format over the original data

    you will have to figure out what program that accessed the drive has put the block
    on it and see if you can remove the program .
    before you can format the drive again

    sorta like a burned CD/DVD that has been finished and windows will not burn new
    video or data to.
