Fixing broken flash memory drive

Filed under: gadgets, hacks, Software — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — guilleml @ 1:28 pm

I have an old 64MB usb flash drive, I use it at university since some computers still use USB 1.1 and windows XP, everytime I have used my 120GB external HD or the 30GB iPod I waited arround 10 ~ 15 minutes while windows was scanning the content, USB 1.1 is too slow.

Anyway, 64MB to store my source codes and some documents is enough.

One day my memory drive began to give read and write errors, I think I’ve used it too much, so I restored it making a low level format on it. Now it works very nice, it just has 45MB, but…what else can I ask?

The tool I used to make the low format is: http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/2006.04.12-HDD-Low-Level-Format-Tool/
