Hello,
May be it is inWriteProtect Option in Registry,it does not allow your pendrive to format.So You follow

1.Go to Run->regedit
2.MyComputer->HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE->SYSTEM->CurrentControlSet->Control -> StorageDevicePolicies
3.Delete the StorageDevicePolicies in Your Registry.

Now You can format the Pendrive
Or else try this...
