Hello,

Try this 1

1) Try formatting your pen drive from the command prompt.

Click on Start --> In search bar, type cmd. When the cmd appears in the search,

right-click on it and select the option "Run as administrator".

Here I assume your pen drive letter as G. Enter the below command.

format /q /x g: --> Press Enter and follow the instructions.

2) Try from the "Disk Management".

Click on Start --> In search bar, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter.

"Disk Managemenet" will be opened. Right-click on your pen drive letter and

select the option format.

Good Luck
