Hello, after experiencing the similar windows unable to complete the format error problems recently with my 16GB flash drive, I learned there were several methods to resolve such drive issues:
1). Check this USB drive is write protected or password protected. If it is, go remove the password protection or write protection at first.
2). Format it in Disk Management again
But, if it is not, merely go try to perform a format on your drive in Disk Management of your PC.
3). Use flash drive formatting software.
Or if that also does not work, just go download a flash drive formatting program to have a try.

Window was unable to format my 32 gb kingstone pendrive


To solve the problem use HP USB DISK STORAGE FORMAT TOOL V2.1.8. You can find it at http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=197. Do not format your 32GB Kingston PenDrive with NTFS file system since it does not function. Use FAT32 instead.

your pendrive is infected with Autorun virus

scan your whole computer with your pendrive
