Hello,

Please try booting into safe mode to perform the format.

thankyou for replying...
I tried formatting on safe mode but only my mp3 would format....I couldnt fix the I/O device error at all..
everytime i click on the usb...it opens a window and a message comes up saying that it has not been formatted&do you want to format now?...
when I click yes and then format...a message comes up saying that it cannot complete format...
Why wont it let me format and how can I fix this problem?
Thankyou again for your help

Hello,

I think your thumb drive is spoiled or a firmware inside it has corrupted. Do you always remove the device safely?
