    USB 3.1 flash drive suddenly malfunctioning when plugged into 2.0 slot


    Hi,


    So I was using my 3.1 usb flash drive in the 3.0 slot of my laptop and decided to try another port out.

    After switching and plugging into the other 2.0 slot, I copied and pasted data to test if it was working correctly and compiled and built a .c program. After using the usb for a minute or two, windows gave an error regarding that the usb device has malfunctioned yet it works fine in the other 3.0 slot.


    From the event viewer the messages that showed up were :

    "An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk1\DR5 during a paging operation. " and "The IO operation at logical block address 0x114c0 for Disk 1 PDO name: \Device\000000c8 was retried."



    If I plug the usb into a generic 3.0 hub and then to the usb 2.0 port it works fine.


    Is this a problem with my usb or my usb 2.0 ports?

    :)

    How To Format A Write Protected Flash Memory ?

    ¿You already tried this one?...

    Run CMD


    1. diskpart
    2. list disk

    Then in the 3º step, put the correct number of disk in the list for the usb flash (if it's listed in disk 3, then you'll have to write select disk 3).

    2. select disk #
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    with that commands you will format the flash drive in fat32, if you have a large drive you can select also "format fs=ntfs" in step 7.

    good luck!

    If you have been suffering messages such as 'Adapter not Found' , 'ERROR 0FL01' , 'Invalid Adapter or BIOS Selected' when trying to flash or reflash your Video cards Bios and you are lucky enough to own a PC capable of running more than one PCI-E Video card then this could just be the Guide you've been looking for.

    Step 2 Copy all the USB Boot files to the USB Boot Drive (do not overwrite files when prompted)

    Step 3 Copy ATIFlash files USB Boot Drive

    Step 4 Copy new BIOS file to USB BOOT Drive (name it something like bios.bin as you will be using this name in a DOS Prompt later on)

    Step 3 Once in your Mobo's Bios change the first Boot Device to USB-HDD (or your Equivalent setting) then Reboot

    Step 4 At the C:\ Prompt type, atiflash -ai 0 ,this will provide you with proof that your Video Card does infact exist

    Step 6 At the C:\ Prompt type, atiflash -f -p 0 bios.rom , this is when your Bios is actually flashed

    Step 7 Once your Bios has been flashed simply 'Ctrl+Alt+Delete' to restart your PC

    Step 8 Go straight back into your Mobo's Bios and change your first Boot Device back to what it was (probably HDD) then Reboot for the final time and your finished
