Hello,

Try formatting your pen drive from the command prompt.

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

Command Prompt will be opened.

Here I assume your pen drive letter as G.

Enter this command.

format /FS:FAT32 g:

Press "Enter" and follow the instructions.

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

If the problem still exists, then try to format your pendrive with "HP USB Disk

Storage Format Tool". Click on the below link and download it.

Good Luck.
