Hello btwchiwa,

Are you working with Windows operating system on your PC? If so, try with the command prompt. When connected the USB drive, try these steps:
1. Open command prompt
2. Type the following:
attrib -s -h -r X:/*.* / s / d
Then hit "Enter" and wait about for some 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 recycle folder and if there is another one called "Autorun" you have to delete that too.

Tell me if that helped.
