The low-level format utility was an excellent solution. This one works on USB drives, while other low-level ones do not. In many cases, this problem is caused by failure to use the "Safely Remove USB" tool on your system tray before you remove your flash drive. This is the little green arrow at the bottom of your screen. Even so, Vista many times will simply not release the device no matter what, in which case you should shut down before removing your device.
