    Yesterday my USB disk was deleting something, but then I absentmindedly unplugged it. It's now RAW, and I can't format it to FAT nor NTFS.

    I've tried format it with EaseUS, command prompt, and Disk Management, but no use. I've tried deleting the partition, but that's not even an option in any program. I'm using Windows XP and Vista. I don't care about the data in the disk, I just want it to format correctly

    I'm thinking that it's not possible to fix the corrupted disk, but I'm also wondering if anyone had a RAW USB disk and got it to work.

    Thanks in advance :)
