Hi there,

If you are listening to music or viewing pictures or even applications from the device please end then then try to format the device also if having limited account you will not be able to format it,

Thanks

Hello,

Try formatting your pen drive from command prompt.

Click on Start ---> Run ---> Type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your pen drive letter is G drive.

Now enter this command.

format /q /x g: and press Enter.

Note : Don't forget to replace the letter "g" with your drive letter.
