Reviving a Transcend 256 MB pen drive

S wanted me to try and revive a 256 MB Transcend USB flash memory pen-drive. Plugging into an Ubuntu machine and checking fdisk -l showed it was formatted as FAT16. Probably there was also some corruption since he reported pulling it out while Puppy was formatting and/or partitioning it! Anyway, a quick mkfs -t vfat /dev/sdc1 did the trick, working fine now.
