Try this 1

1) Try formatting your flash drive from the "Disk Management".

Click on Start --> Run --> Type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter.

"Disk Management" will be opened. Now right-click on your "Flash Drive", select

the option "Format" and follow the instructions.

2) If the problem still exists, then try to format your flash drive with "HP USB Disk

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

Good Luck

i've same problem I think this company is very bad company he just give us trail object, when I try to format my laptop told me make the driver un read-only or some things like this...
worked a treat, bought flash drive for a system backup on a netbook, formatting failed, couldn't format the flash drive on any PC in the house, contacted Sandisk (20mins online), who suggested contacting the retailer. found your link and formatted no problem
if the data is very important then you just insert in any linux computer and it will recognized it and show all your data files
i got message usb not recoginzed in windows but when I run it in ubuntu all of my files are available
