Hello,
Try this 1
Try to format it from the "Command Prompt".
Click on Start --> Run --> Type cmd and press Enter.
"Command Prompt" will be opened. Here I assume your pen drive letter as g
Now enter the below command.
format /x /q g: ---> Press Enter.
If the problem still exists then enter the command as
format /x /q /FS:FAT32 g: ---> Press Enter.
Good Luck
