Re: Kingston Thumb Drive Comatose.

I would suspect you need a specialist application to sort this, thing is, when you plug in a disk drive, the system uses information from the first sector to identify the drive and its size. You get a similar problem when you zero out an entire hard disk, and there the solution is to manually enter into the bios the hard drive.

What I suspect has happened in your case, is a wrap around when writing to drive has overwritten the first sector.

The drive is dead. The controller is still responding but the storage part is gone. Don't waste any more time with it.
