Hello salam deen,

Does the USB device show as a write-protected drive? Have you tried connecting it to a Windows based system and format it from there? What was the result
If you haven't tried any third party software yet, I suggest you to try with some storage administration programs like Gparted and Testdisk. On the Internet there are many other tools that might help you with the issue.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
