Hi Virus or Trojans can run some process that keeps running in background. This not only harms the computer, but also prevents the pen drive from formatting as it shows that the drive is in use. Remove and re-insert the pen drive, don't double click on drive and cancel autorun operations if it starts automatically. Run a virus scan on pen drive, this will help fix the issue. Now format the pen drive.
Try formatting the drive. Assuming Windows XP, just open your "my computer" icon, right-click on the device and choose format. Be aware, formatting will remove any data you may have had on there previously.
If you're using another OS, or if it's an existing drive, please re-state your question giving further details (what OS, what you are trying to retrieve, etc).
I would first put it through a fast formatte then a standard formatte, then i would recommend asector scan and see if there are any sectors that are not recoverable, if they are messed up and or still not solved try to uninstall the file that has stored the recognition files for the pen drive remove the main file in c drive program files , find the file by name corresponding to what it is you have and delet it then do a full shutdown and after a full cold start reboot install pen and software when asked if you still experience this post the results and i will try to help in a higher level of tech knowledge and support
