Are you formatting it NTFS or fat32? If fat32 you need to do it a special way to work properly.

I am thinking that it is formated for ext3 type

how did you format it in the first place? have you tried to use hirens to formate the pendrive. are you just wanting to make a pendrive hirens boot?

EDITED
