Broken USB stick?


Well-known Member
I've got an unbranded 4gb usb pen drive ( a freebie with an order I made somewhere in the past).

I've recently tried to use it, but it wouldn't transfer any data. I thought a quick format may sort it out, but whatever I try (using disk utility on Mac, both 10.5 and 10.6) It just gives a few seconds of progress bar followed by the pop-up warning that the "drive was removed without being properly ejected" (which of course it wasn't)

Is it broken or is there something obvious i'm missing?
