Greetings,

Please make sure that you pendrive is not write protected, refer to the link below:
https://ccm.net/computing/hardware/787-how-to-disable-write-protection-on-a-usb-key/

You can try to using a tool like HP format tool. here is the link:

Good Luck!

If this solution does not work, follow these steps:

1-Click on Start

2-Right click on my computer

3-Click on manage then click on storage

4-Click on disk management

5-Right click on your device and select add letters and path, a window will pop up then click on Add then select an alphabet different of C and click on Ok.

If the solutions above don't work, that mean your drive is certainly corrupted and it can't be repaired. Think to a buy a new one.

Regards.
