You probably didn't do it properly.

Try this:

Click start
then run regedit
go to this directory

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Currentcontrolset\control\

if you can't find StorageDevicePolicies under control folder then make some new one. Follow this steps:
step 1: go to this directory

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Currentcontrolset\control\

again and right click control folder
step 2: select new, then click key and rename the new key #1 folder into StorageDevicePolicies
step 3: right click StorageDevicePolicies folder and select new DWORD(32-bit) Value for 32-bit Operating System and select new DWORD(64-bit) Value for 64-bit Operating System
step 4: rename dword newer folder into WriteProtect, then double click WriteProtect and change the value data into 0 with hexadecimal base, Then close regedit
step 5: open my computer and refresh it 5 times without do anything to your usb, and properly eject your flash drive
step 6: plug in your usb again into your computer and format it using exfat instead of fat32
