You just need to follow these steps.

Step 1: Insert your pen drive in your USB port and go to my computer. right click on the pen drive’s drive and click on format.

Step 2: Select NTFS and check quick format. push the format button and format that flash drive.

Step 3: Go to start >>run , type “cmd” and click “enter”. After this you will see a command prompt screen.

Step 4: Type “dispart” and click “enter”. The “diskpart” screen will open.

Step 5: Type “listdisk” and hit “enter”. In the listed disk drive, you need to find your flash drive. You will be able to recognize it by its size. Suppose if the name is “disk 1″ then you need to enter “select disk 1″ and click “enter”.

All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
