I have a 16GB Sandisk Cruzer with a U3 partition.

It's prompting me to format every time I plug it into a Windows computer. Another prompt says the drive does not contain a recognized file system, and to make sure drivers are loaded and the volume is not corrupted.

Since it had been working fine until today, I figure that it got corrupted.

I tried chkdsk'ing it with cmd and it says the file system is RAW, and chkdsk is not available.

If I try it plugging it on a Mac, it shows up in Finder as an inaccessible blank disc.
I tried to change my password to "my dick".
GameFAQs said it was too long.
