i have a 1GB pny flash drive and it suddenly stopped working...

when i plug it into any computer (ive tried several) it recognises that a usb storge device has been plugged in but it never realizes it it a 1gb flash. so i end up with a drive E or something that has storage of 0 and cannot be read by the computers. i tried to reformat the drive in xp and xp pro with no success. the computers say that the drive is unreadable and if i double click it in "my computer" it tell me to insert a disk.

is there a program or a command to force a format of it? or some other way i can fix it without having to dig up the reciept from black friday to RMA it. @_@
