Hi Uma,

When you enter Disk Management, the file format appears as RAW? This means that the file system can not be properly recognized and the system reads it as RAW, which may indicate drive damage. Formatting a RAW pendrive could be really hard. I strongly recommend you to try the pendrive on another PC or using a Linux Live CD.
