Answers :

The drive itself may have died. But, try this... with it installed on your pc, right click on my computer, then left click on manage.
\015\012When the computer management screen appears, highlight drive management on the left side of the window. Your drives will now show up on the right. Delete the partition and recreate it (by right clicking on the drive) and then try to do another format.
\015\012Hope this helps
