    I have an issue with my pendrive.


    Today I plugged in my flash drive, but when I tried to open it, it said "Please insert a disk into (H"

    I just wanted to reinstall my Windows 10 from flash, because it became very slow, and I can format my SSD from startup when installing, and that is better way.

    Model: TOSHIBA TransMemory USB Device

    I do believe it has died. If the controller in the USB key can't see the memory chips (or they don't work any more) Windows reports "insert disk".

    You'll have to buy a new one I'm afraid.

    I had watched a tutorial video before it and I did something wrong or something, but I retyped something and I got an error of it, I forgot which or where I saw that video but I also commented but I didn't got any answer.

    I doubt you did anything wrong. Pendrives don't last a long time - especially if you write to them a lot.

    Not necessarily a dead USB. Here's one way to reproduce the problem. From a Command Prompt (Admin) run Diskpart....
    Code:
    Microsoft DiskPart version 10.0.16299.15
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.
    On computer: TOSH-L750
    
    DISKPART> LIST DISK
    
      Disk ###  Status         Size     Free     Dyn  Gpt
      --------  -------------  -------  -------  ---  ---
      Disk 0    Online          465 GB      0 B
      Disk 1    Online           14 GB    14 GB
    
    DISKPART> SELECT DISK 1
    Disk 1 is now the selected disk.
    
    DISKPART> CLEAN
    DiskPart succeeded in cleaning the disk.
    DISKPART>
    Because it now contains no partition information, File Explorer will respond to this USB with 'please insert a disk into USB Drive...'. To be able to work again, this usb needs a partition, - in Diskpart you can make one with...
    CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY

    Diskpart or File Manager can then be used to format the new partition as appropriate.

    Worth a try certainly.

    I could be wrong - it is a day for it apparently :)
