    go to pendrive properties and and on the options select readyboost and choose "do not use this device" Windows will restore the previous settings and your pendrive is ready to use now

          1)download Gparted Live CD. Burn the iso image with Imgburn or other iso burning soft.

          2)Boot the Gparted live CD with the USB flash connected
          3)Select USB drive
          4)Select the partition and then delete. 5)Create a new partition and reformat. You should format it as FAT32.
