    windows cannot formate this drive. Quit anydisk utilities or other programs that are using this drive and make sure that no windows is displaying the contents of the drive. then try formatting again.

Write delay failed...

That is a sign of corrupted memory. Try to run a scan disk on it.

Assumed: Drive letter for the pen drive is G: (If it is not f then replace G with the correct drive letter)

Start > Run > CMD (Click ok, if done proper you will get a black box)
in the black box type in:
 chkdsk f: /f /r /x
It will really look something like this
C:\Documents and settings\Administrator\chkdsk G: /f /r /x

Mostly the FAKEs / imitation of original products have these types of errors where the actual memory capacity of the memory IC is not (less than) what has been shown on the casing. The microcontroller IC for the memory chip is FLASHED with a Patch so that it fools your OS to report a fake larger capacity than it actually is.

e.g. your 8GB pendrive may actually have a 256MB memory if u try to store beyond 256MB, your files are corrupted.

After typing f:/f//r/x the message displays the type of the file is RAW.
CHKDSK is not avalilabe for RAW Devices
