Hi urmila thakur,

I see your computer configuration is "Configuration: Windows 7 / Chrome 20.0.1132.57". The registry fix available here, doesn't work most of the time in Windows 7. Try these additional steps in the below mentioned link:

https://ccm.net/faq/4214-how-to-disable-write-protection-on-a-usb-key

If this doesn't fix the problem please reply with the exact Model Number of the Pen Drive.

Please do write back to us.

Hi Urmila Thakur,

Please try to connect this Pen Drive to a different computer (a friend's computer if possible) and check if you get the "Format" option.

Do reply with results.
