Hello,

Try this 1

1) First go to your pen drive manufacture's website and check if there is any

format utility for your pen drive and then try formatting with it.

OR

Try formatting your pen drive using the "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool".

Click on the below link and download the file.

2) Try to format your pen drive from "Disk Management".

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

"Disk Management" will be opened.

Now right-click on your "Pen drive" drive letter and select format --> Click on OK.

Good Luck
