If the file system on your USB flash drive got changed into RAW format, there must be something wrong with your media. Normally, when there is a problem with a USB flash drive, formatting it will not be successful. In any storage media, running a format will only be successful if there is no error on the drive. Meaning, the drive is healthy or in good condition.

When a USB flash drive has errors, sometimes it is in no condition to run format. This only happens if the problem is severe. If it contains only minor errors, you should be able to use format. But in your case, you are getting some errors when you format it through the Disk Management and it is unable to format the drive.

It means your USB flash drive has a serious problem. To be able to format it successfully, you should fix the errors on the drive first. Try installing PC Tools Performance Toolkit. Once installed, connect your faulty USB flash drive to your computer then run PC Tools Performance Toolkit. Select Recovery tab then click Repair Drives. Select any of the options then click Start.

If you are not satisfied with the result, repeat the test with a different option.
