Hello Adams,

Does the USB device that you are trying to format have a lock in? For that might be the reason why it is refusing to format. You will need to check if that is the case and then disable the lock. You might as well try formatting from another computer and see if that will work.

Regards,

Nicke

Hi Adams this problem usually occurs in the USB stick and in mine to HP 65W and this is due to the sometime virus located in the

USB with the name of system configuration and change the USB Format type from FAT32 to NTFS….

So properly formatting the USB right click on My Computer > Select Manage > Open Storage Devices > Select Removable Devices > Right click and Format this device your device will be formatted fully without any error.

Regards.
