Have you formatted it? Properly - try doing that- and try both formats fat32 and NTFS and if after doing a full format it doesn't work i think you stuck.

That kinda sticks - what kind of flash drive - how big and when did you purchase it - maybe you can RMA

Try letting your OS run a scandisk or something, it's probably fixable without formatting.
