    Well, that takes us back to the USB possibly being bad.

    You might contact the USB's manufacturer to see what they say, and most likely for a RMA if it's still under warrantee.

    Brink, please check the following Windows Disk Check tool results.

    Disk check 1 - "Automatically fix file system errors" option only:

    Click image for larger version

    Disk check 2 - Also checked the "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors" option*:

    Click image for larger version

    * Second disk check made on a system in Brazilian Portuguese.

    Both report there is no problem with the drive.

    What can you say to me? Should I trust these results from Windows?

    If Toshiba's formatting software below for the USB is unable to format the USB on a Windows 7 PC since Windows 8 is technically not listed as supported, then I would recommend to contact Toshiba if it's still under warranty. The warranty period is one year starting from the date of purchase.

    I had the same problem with my Kingston SSDNOW 300V drive. I tried both Windows' Diskpart (command prompt) and Computer Management (control panel) without any success.

    I was so frustrated and researched all over the internet. I was gonna give up and call the manufacturer warranty (I bought the SSD like 3 months ago). Finally, I came across a software called "Paragon Partition Manager 14 Free." I was able to format the solid state drive from exFat to NTFS format.

    ->Choose "Format Partition"
    ->Choose the drive your want to format
    ->It will come up an error saying it cannot access/read/write the drive. Choose "Ignore Error" and continue.
    ->If another error comes up, then choose "Ignore Error" again.
    -> and voila~~!! The drive was formatted to NTFS format at the end.

    You are welcome~!
