So, I pulled out the trusty old Toshiba Windows XP laptop and got the same thing, but did get into the scan and fix a little, seems there is a corrupted file.
At this point I do not need any data on this drive but I do need to have it work, any ideas on forcing a reformat? Yes, I know they are guaranteed by Verbatim but I threw away the receipt weeks ago. If it is a lost cause and I should just bust it up with a hammer and buy a new one, let me know. Also would like recommendation on a good name brand usb drive.
