Go to Start
Click Right mouse button on Computer
Click on Manage
Click on Disk Management
In the Right Panel of the drive you wish to fix
Click Delete Volume
When Volume is deleted
Click Create Volume
Follow the steps
For small drives use Fat32 not NTFS
NTFS is not portable between XP and Win 7
You may also have a virus.

Not sure what exactly is happening when you try to use the disk. Is it a used disk? Did you just purchase it? Do you get an error when trying to use it?
From the limited information, I would suggest going to the website and seeing if there is a solution from PNY: http://www2.pny.com/support/support_landing_cat.aspx?SectionID=1143 (their support page).
If it still doesn't work, post more details & I'll see if I can help.
Have a good day!

Most flash drive comes with its on date support files on it. If those had not been removed then, yes it will show some space used.

If you are attempting to remove the software that was preloaded on the drive, simply reformat it.
remember to copy any data that you have written to the thumb drive before attempting the reformat.
