    ok i was in yearbook class and somehow the damn pc screwed my usb stick and it wouldnt open anymore saying there was an i/o error, so i tried it on other pcs all the same result, so i formatted it and tryed recovering my stuff, and i get this error, so does this mean i should send my usb back and get a replacement? could i also get a refund for how much i lost on the price or not? cuz i just got it recently but when i bought it it was 90 bucks now its cheaper! :dead:

    btw its a sandisk cruzer mini 1.0gb just incase of warranty etc
    the pic is the error im getting from the recovering software

    do you have the receipt? I would think if you have had it less than a month or 2 depending on where you purchased it you could get your money back... refuse an exchange if possible then go buy another one at a different store and possibly get a better one for the same price you spent on this particular item with the extra money.

    I've been scouring the net for awhile mafia - can't find much, the only thing I could think of... if it exists, could we try a firmware upgrade?

    Was that box in yearbook class a Windows box? or Linux....

    Have you tried to right click on My Computer, Manage, Disk Management? You might be able to Initialize, Partition, and Format it there.

    This is on an XP machine, yes?
