Hello Rosy,

Have you tried going to the Disk management menu of your computer in order to format the pendrive?
Besides the Disk management menu, you can format the USB flash through DISKPART, do you know that? :) If you still haven't tried it, here are the steps:
1. Open the Command prompt in administrator mode
2. Type DISKPART to enter the diskpart menu
3. Then type LIST DISK
4. After that type SELECT DISK X replacing the letter X with the number of disk which has been assigned by your PC. If you have one local disk which is disk 0, then the USB flash should be disk 1
5. Type SELECT DISK 1
6. When it gives the message that “disk 1 is now the selected disk” you have to type CLEAN – this will wipe out everything that you have in the pendrive
7. After that type FS=NTFS or FS=FAT32 depending on the size of files you would like to store

Let me know if that helped.
