Hello Aryan,

Have you tried to format your pendrive through Command prompt? You have to know which number is your flsh drive. I suggest you to go to Disk managment to see how it's shown up there.
Then enter these commands, each followed by Enter:
diskpart
list disk
slect disk # /where # represents the number of your USB/
clean
format fs = FAT32

You can also try this:
1. Open command prompt
2. Type the following:
attrib -s -h -r X: /*.* / s / d Then hit "Enter" and wait about 30 seconds
Be careful! Respect the spaces between words and script. Change the letter X with that has been assigned to the USB device on your PC (that you can see it in My Computer. It can be anything, depends on each computer.)
3. Finally, browse the flash drive and delete the "RECYCLER" folder and if there is another one called "Autorun" you have to delete that too.

Hope that I helped you.
