I have a problem with my usb pendrive, it isn't fully recognized in Windows, I can see the unit in my pc but I can't access it and unit dimension doesn't appear under it! If I open diskpart with pendrive plugged in it stays blocked, I can do nothing. I tried using ubuntu live, when I open gparted I get the error: "Input/output error during read on /dev/sdc" a lot of time, I've tried to create a new partition table but this failed

    So you recived numerous I/O errors on /dev/sdc? Do you know if the device is actually functional? I/O errors indicate a hardware problem. – Ramhound Jul 16 '19 at 20:48

    Sounds like a hardware problem. A hardware problem that is indicating that the device is not operational. – Ramhound Jul 16 '19 at 20:53

    Your pendrive apparently, and from your errors appears to be failing. It's a dead pendrive. – CaldeiraG Jul 16 '19 at 20:54
