Note about how to fix this corrupted flash drive I wrote to complete the previous post on how to fix a flash that reads 0 bytes. Last afternoon I asked my friends to fix 2 Flash brand transcend which each capacity 1 GB.
When plugged into a USB port, the single flash is instantly-detect and reads as drive, but when the click appears writing, “Please insert a disk into the drive I:” I see his properties flash-readable 0 bytes. As for the flash, one more when plugged into a USB port isn’t detected at all. I’m so decided to try to fix the pen drive that still detects the same windows.
Here are my steps in fixing the corrupted flash drive:
1. Formatting a Flashdisk using the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool
Inspired experience some time ago when repairing the flash drive that reads 0 bytes, I tried to formate the corrupted with tools HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool, but it did not work. HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool Software does not detect the existence of a flash drive.
2. Using Software to repair Flashdisk.
The second step is to use some of the tools/software commonly used in repairing corrupted flash disks such as Super Stick Recovery Tools, but still unreadable flash disks. Then I use the program Low-Level Format and Seatools for Windows. The flash is legible but even can not be repaired.
3. reprogram The Flash Controller IC
I finally met an article that suggests to low-level USB Flashdisk format while simultaneously to flash/Reprogram the IC Controller. After I uninstall it turns out IC Controllernya is ALCOR-AU6986. After Googling finally met also the software AlcorMP_UFD for IC ALCOR-AU6986.
How to fix a Flashdisk using AlcorMP_UFD tools is as follows:
- Download AlcorMP_UFD Program for IC ALCOR-AU6986 here
- Once extracted run the ALCORMP file. Exe.
- Click on the Setup menu, if the Password window appears to click OK
- Look like the image below, replacing Scan Mode into Low-Level Format.
- Click Start (A) to start the process and wait for it to finish.
- After the successful, I reformat the Flashdisk again with Windows default Format
- And successfully, your Flashdisk has now returned to normal.
