View Full Version : 1 gig scan disk pro duo memory stick corrupted data & format

The problem with the 1 gig scan disk memory stick is very real and needs to be solved by the factory. the psp and any other reader will not read the card after it has been corrupted.
I have had this problem and tried to reformat the card in every way possible. Nothing works. you cannot delete anything off the stick because once your stick is corrupted everything on your card cannot be changed thru your psp or any other device. whatever you try to do it will say "failed" delete failed, format failed, save failed.

I tried helping a few people with this problem and went thru all the steps and more. If anyone has anything more creative. please feel free to add to this post.

I think this board is a great board for help. seems like the admin are a bit harsh on the members. I read other posts about this problem and the member got banned because he was suggested to delete files, which will not work. Seemed like the board administrators got frustrated with the member and banned him when the member really didn't do anything wrong?

if you are referring to here, people get banned for other reasons- mainly violating TOS, or spamming....

anyways- I have found a nifty feature courtesy of Windows7... pop your flash disk into W7 and it will come up (usually- and only if drive has issues) with a nifty little dialog saying 'I notice your external media storage device is corrupt, would you like windows 7 to attempt to recover and fix blah blah blah."
I have seen this fix USB flashes as well as entire hard-drives.... it is worth a try.

That worked very little for me. In fact doesnt it ask for format later on ??? recovering files will be difficult.
