    So ur PenDrive is recognized by Windows?

    If yes, try to open it by double clicking, it would ask u to format b4 using...
    Format and use.
    or,
    Right click on it and select FORMAT.

    It can never happen that u can't format a RAW partition/USB drive.

    A few months ago, my USB drive crashed and showed up directly as RAW...I formatted as NTFS, and it allowed me to.

    Try using a Linux Live CD and then formatting. :)

    Well, it is a 100MB download, but it is something one must really have IMHO.

    And also tell us about your Pen drive? Company? Model? Capacity?
