run DISKPART from command and select your USB disk.

type list disk

type select disk <number>

type clean

type convert gpt

type create partition primary


Thanks for replying :) ..

when i type --create partition pramary it says..

No usable free extent could be found. It may be that there is insufficient
free space to create a partition at the specified size and offset. Specify
different size and offset values or don't specify either to create the
maximum sized partition. It may be that the disk is partitioned using the MBR disk
partitioning format and the disk contains either 4 primary partitions, (no
more partitions may be created), or 3 primary partitions and one extended
partition, (only logical drives may be created).

any solution for this ?

It may be that your drive is faulty.

Sorry to intterupt. Pleae pardon me.

Did you enable NTFS as an option on the drive before you tried it?

Try this.
Right click My Computer and select Manage.
Open the Device Manager and find your USB drive under the Disk Drives heading.
Right click the drive and select Properties.
Choose Policies tab and select the "Optimize for performance" option.
Click OK.

I have said it once, I will say it again. IT!
Tried it but didn't work :( .. Thanks for your concern though :)

hello try using a cmd(ms-dos) console, u windows key+r then type cmd then put diskpart, this will read your plugin devices then put list disk and when the list came out put select disk 1 or 2 depends on the disk number when listed, then put clean, after that put create partition primary, then put select partition 1, then put active, and finally put format fs=ntfs if this does not work u can use a soft named low level format, hope u can format.
I will give it a try :)
