Dear Sir,

I will firstly recommend you to plug it in another PC and format it. Don't open it at first for checking what's saved

into it, just format it. It could solve your problem. Nevertheless, for your case I believe that there might be some

write protection on it and you shoudl remove it in order for it to format properly. It will be easy to remove the

write protection, no need to pannick. Get running regedit, and by getting through this path

MyComputer/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/StorageDevicePolicies, delete the

Storage Device Policies. This deletion will allow you to format the flash drive now.
