usb flash memory not recognizable.

I connect my usb memory to the computer, it appears for a second on the my computer window and then it disappears and a message pops up telling me that i need to format my disk. origionally the flash used to FLOOD my screen with format requests which made me suspecious that it might be a virus. i installed USBScan and though it could not grant me access to my flash drive i am no longer plagued by the constant barrage of messages asking me to format my flash drive.

I used CMD (as admin) and ran disk part :

Disk 0 Online 931GB
Disk 1 No Media 0 B

I tried removing the readonly from disk 1, it was a success but the "clean" command returns with "there is no media in the device"

I installed bootICE and it returns the following error on the physical disk tab when i select the USB drive : readfile error: the device is not ready.

bootICE however does list my flash drive as jetflash transcend 32gb.

is it a virus? or is my flash drive gone bad? I'm not taking any chances and will be re-installing my windows just to make sure.

    its a JF700 32gb, my mistake was that I did not previously download the correct jetflash online recovery tool. i downloaded the correct one this time and after a brief download it returned my USB flash drive to life :D. thanks a ton.
