Unable to format any removable disk

Whenever I inserted any removable disk on my PC, I could not open it. Windows is always telling me to format it but when trying to format, an error occurred stating that “Windows is unable to format disk”. How can I format without getting this error message? Is there any other way that I can format aside from clicking on the My Computer folder and right-click it to format?

Please send me some advices.

Thanks.

Hi!

Try to check your computer if it has any virus. Usually viruses are the cause of these errors. Also, try to format your thumb drive on other computer. If it works, then your USB drive has a problem. Try formatting your Pc. Then check if works this time.

Thanks.
