Dear Abey,

Please do not open it or open files from it, otherwise you will not be able to format it.

Thank you.

Hello,

First don't open the drive and try to format it.

If the problem still exists then

Here I assume your pendrive letter as H drive.

Click on Start --> Run ----> type cmd and click on OK. Command Prompt will be

opened.

Type this command

format /q /x h: and press enter.

Note : Don't forget to replace the letter "h" with your driver letter.
