    No usable free extent could be found. It may be that there is insufficient free space to create a partition at the specified size and offset. Specify different size and offset values or don't specify either to create the maximum sized partition. It may be that the disk is partitioned using the MBR disk partitioning format and the disk contains either 4 primary partitions, (no more partitions may be created), or 3 primary partitions and one extended partition, (only logical drives may be created)". Same bar bar a raha hai format karne ka koi or tarika bata do plzz

      @Rahul: Are you performing a fresh installation of Windows? At this case you have to delete all partitions before installing Windows (See Step-3 (8a) from this article)
      If you facing the problem in any other case, please give me the details of the procedure you follow.

    Thank you so much for this website :)
    Seems like all possible procedures have been explained clearly here step by step. You have saved me from further frustration. In my case previous procedures didn't work till I get to the method switching my computer to safe mode. Once I got there then my flash drive was visible with its full capacity. Great!
    I have to say that you do the good job running this website :)
    BTW: I'll make a donation:)

    hello i do the same as you said, i could see my sd drive, sd card is 8 GB, but now i can see on the format panel just 30.6 MB, i follow your way until here : create partition primary
    then i get a message:
    " No usable free extent could be found. It may be that there is insufficient free space to create a partition at the specified size and offset. Specify different size and offset values or don't specify either to create the maximum sized partition. It may be that the disk is partitioned using the MBR disk partitioning format and the disk contains either 4 primary partitions, (no more partitions may be created), or 3 primary partitions and one extended partition, (only logical drives may be created)".

    all this 3 Method you said, i do, but unfortunatly i could fix it.
    please say me how i can format and use again my sd card ?

    thanks

      @Amir Ali: Boot in Safe Mode and try method 2 or try to delete and recreate partitions by using Easeus Partition Master Free.

    2. If you receive the following error after executing the format command: "DiskPart has encountered an error: Access is denied. See the System Event Log for more information.", then:

    a. Close command prompt.
    b. Restart your computer.
    c. Log in on your computer as Administrator.
    d. Open Computer Management > Disk Management.
    e. At the right pane: Right click on the disk and select Format.
    f. When the format is completed you can use the disk normally. (Ignore all other steps listed here).

    not working help plz there is no damage to my sd card

    my disk size shows 64mb whereas it is actually a 16gb pendrive. Also it shows the "no usable free extent could be found" error, and when i give the "select partition 1" command it says no partition selected and the "clean all" command works within seconds. What to do?

      @kassim: Have you followed the instructions mentioned under the "Note" about this problem? If yes, then download and then burn to a CD the GParted LiveCD. Boot your system with Gpated LiveCD and carefully select from the top right list box the SD card. Then Right click on each partition and delete all partitions. When done, Right click on the unallocated space and select NEW to create a new partition in NTFS file system.

        How can they do this to me. They didn't put 'quick' on the format command above and now my sd card formats slowly! But it works so thanks anyway lol.

        this page is amazing.

          @Sanked. If you still cannot format your disk then probably the disk is damaged and you must replace it.

    I think that all of the steps of your tutorial done correctly and I followed every details of it correctly too, but when I am in the state of formatting it like this "format fs=ntfs quick label=NewDisk" right now I spent almost an hour for the formatting to be done but it still stuck on 0%. Why is it like that? My flash drive is only 16GB. Thanks for the help man!

    Hello, thanks a lot for this page. I've been pulling my hair out for an hour trying to resolve a permission issue to delete an iso from a USB stick. The 'attributes disk clear readonly' command was the missing piece of the puzzle and now it all works like a charm.

    I am using windows XP. It only shows one disk in the "list disk". The one I'm looking to fix is not listed. Any fixes?

          @Marquis: It is working (but it takes much time) unless your disk is damaged.
