* Can see drive in "My Computer" but if you double click on drive in my computer, it says : "Please insert disc into Drive E:"

* Right click and select format and it says:
"There is no disc in Drive E. Insert a disc, and then try again"

* In My Computer (right click) -> Manage -> Disc Management:
"Disk 1
Removable (E:)


* In My Device Properties shows that the device is working properly, but under "Volumes" tab it says that Status = unreadable. Partition style = Master Boot Record (MBR).

* I Run MS Dos (CMD) To Format but the result is:

"Cannot open volume for direct access"
