This seems to be a problem as a result of auto run virus which has probably infected your flash drive, an autorun virus modifies the autorun.inf file in the root drive of your flash drive so that it can execute commands that are mentioned in that file, most probably , it will execute a .exe file which is hidden in your pen drive by the virus so that your flash drive malfunctions and takes up much of your memory , i.e. physical memory used to run programs faster to which we call RAM.
I would recommend you the following steps to make sure that your drive is functioning properly.
Do a through scan of your flash drive and make sure that it's virus free , by a reliable antivirus software , there are some good ones available for free, I would recommend you download AVG free version if you don't have one , so that you can use it to scan your flashdrive. http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition-2011/3000-2239_4-10320142.html
After you scan your flash drive , and the anti virus heals the detected viruses or deletes them , you should not have this problem.
Your pendrive is infected with Autorun.inf virus to remove this virus install malwarebytes (It is antimalware software)and scan your whole computer as well as your pendrive when you scaning finish remove all threats
IF the above method is not work
Try to format in other operating system like windows vista or in windows 7 because in vista and 7 you can force format your pendrive

It is simple to use, simply plug it into a working USB port on your computer and Windows or Mac will detect it as an external drive device. You will find the new drive under My Computer. The bottom right may display a "found new hardware" or something similar. Once you find your drive, open it and choose what you want to put on it. Just drag everything you need onto the new drive. There is a possibility that you have to format it first. Do do that, just right click on the drive device and choose Format. Use FAT or FAT 32. To remove the USB drive, find Safely Remove Hardware close to the time, right click it and select remove. This is more important on a MAC because data could easily get erased if removed without giving instruction to remove it.
