    It doesn't see the drive, only my hard drive, I tried with device, with refresh devices, It doesn't exist for it.

    I guess it can't be helped... there goes a 4GB memory... on windows keeps looping on an error about not being able to remove the drive, so I must eject it from my pc... that's even worse, right?

    It gives you that error when you try to do the safely remove hardware?

    Re: USB drives are recoverable?

    YES

    But, It happens that I tried it on another PC with a fresh install of windows, it gave me this message when I tried to see the files inside...
    Remove the writing protection of the drive at unit \Device\HardDisk1\DR5
    It's translated from spanish, so... where is this and HOW do I do this on windows? It's and XP SP2 installation.

    Try right-clicking on My Computer and going to Manage. From there go to Disk Management and see if you can see the drive. If you can see it, you should be able to partition/format it there. The data will of course be lost but you won't be out a drive.

    I can see it, but don't have the option to format, where is it? by right clicking I have remove, set free, all tasks (same as above) cut, properties and help.

    Normally by right clicking on the drive there is a format option. Try going into the Disk Manager and seeing if it will allow you to delete the current partition and creat a new one.

    Can't format it like that it says it's writing protected...

    On the other hand I went to help to see if for a time, this would have the solution... nope, it doesn't, it's the same old windows I left a year ago...
