Farid you should write your problem in details, i.e. whats going on when you try to format the flash disk. To format flash disk the steps are :

1). Plug your Flash to USB port of your system.

2). Cancel if auto play window appears.

3). Double click on My Computer icon

  • The icon for your flash will be appear in the My computer window.
4). Right Click on your Flash icon and select Format from the pop-up menu appeared.
  • WARRNING: If you will select wrong disk i.e. other than your flash you will loose all the data of that disk.
So, please be aware of that.


Thanks
Iqbal

    what did you done?


    • try to remove your flash from USB port and insert it again.

    • may be your flash damaged physically, in that case your system will not recognize but its rare to be damaged.


    • try to check your flash in another system.



    and see m vry unhappy with your rating. You have asked how to make format and answer that. The rating you have given to my solution means my solution is not related to your problem, Is it not.



    anyway thanks for your rating.



    Thanks

Your flash disk has been infected by virus that is why you are unable to open the flash drive. The best thing you can do is to download a good antivirus such as MacaFee or Avira or scan the flash drive for virus.

An alternative thing you can do is to insert your flash drive into a linux operated pc such as Fedora, Ubuntu, Open Susie or Redhat and then delete all the files in the Flash drive and format it

Can't format flash disk


Files on a flash drive can be corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon and then click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flash drive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive you may need to format the flash drive, but you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive this program may help: -
