If Diskpart wont fix them they prob really are bricked but try these steps Smiley  ive never had Hive brick a disk i couldn't unlock using this method

Step 1: run CMD as admin
Step 2: enter diskpart, type: diskpart  
Step 3: (assumes you got into diskpart)   type: list disk
Step 4: select the "bricked" drive, type: select disk + the disk number  (1,2,3,w.e)  i.e  "select disk 2"
Step 5: (assumes you now have your "bricked"  drive selected)  type: clean
Step 6: type: create partition primary
step 7: type: format fs=ntfs   (or w.e format you want the drive) . this will take a bit, have a coffee.
Step 8: type: assign  (this assigns a drive letter and mount point)
step 9: exit diskpart, type: exit

the drive should now be 100% usable again!

luckily im bored right now and had time to type that Tongue


Thanks. But i have already tried most of these. When i type clean it says: Unable to format disk: 'The system cannot find the file specified' then it does not show the flash drive in List Disk. I have to remove it and insert it again to view it in List Disk.

Try SD Formatter it's the official utility of the SD Association and the best way to format a SD card. It's restored corrupt drives for me.

You can do the Low-level formatting (low-level format) to your FDD. I use Low-Level Format Tool called HDD LLF (from HDDGURU) that always working good (at least for me)  Wink

This tool has saved a few of my FDD and HDD  Cheesy

This will fix it under windows. It will remove all unwanted partition layouts.
Easy.
