    IDE ATA ATAPI controllers

    Hello there

    I'm kinda stuck here. Trying to format my usb flash drive. Right clicking on usb icon and choosing 'format' doesn't help as it says: windows was unable to complete the format. So I decided to do it by cmd but the thing is I'm not even able to clean the disk as the following pops up: diskpart has encountered an eror the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. See the system event log for more information.

    I've read that in this case you have to make some changes at IDE ATA ATAPI controllers but I see no channel being listed below that.

    So how can i format it without using a 3rd party software or updating my drives( as I'm not able to)?
    *My os is windows 10 and I'm using MSI PE60 7RD device

    An I/O device error means the Flash Drive (ie) I/O device, has failed and needs to be replaced.
