USB Stick memory format

This old style USB stick memory, 128 MB ram.
very much useless to try to recover it.
It is assigned to drive F:
I could not write to this drive F: at all. If I put it into my Canon powershot A40, errors say:
"CF card full", then "CF card error",
try using Xp and win98 formatter utility, it failed to format this device.
Download this cardrecovery utility, it see the drive F fine, yet found no data to recover, so stop the process at step 3.



HP usb format utility is known to solve this kind of problem, but HP doesn't seem to support this utility anymore.
I used to have this program, after length search, got this hp prog, it still failed. Download here


another program called "MSFMTINST210.EXE" from Sony might solve the problem, no found yet.
"X-Format-Setup-series3000.exe" this also seem no where to find .

another thread mentioned how to deal with santa cruzer CF card by working on registry database:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEEnumUSBVID_0781&PID_7101
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlASDProb{9B4E7760 -3196-11CF...}
Delete the USBVID_0781&PID_7101 on the right hand side
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlASDProb{CF2524C0 -29AE-11CF...}
Delete the USBVID_0781&PID_7101 on the right hand side
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlDeviceClasses{a5d cbf10-6530-11d2...}
Delete the DeviceInstance USBVID_0781&PID_7101 on the right hand side


this does not work for me either, so the recovery of this 128 mb CF card failed now.
