You can format it thru the ''my computer'' when you have plugged your drive in right click on it and youll see an option to format in the list.

How to restore delected files from my usb flash drive

Hi, Even I faced the same problem. I have deleted some of the PDF file from my pen drive and luckily I could get all the files from it. I used Yodot File Recovery software and with the assistance of this software I was able to get all the PDF files. Download free trial version of the software if you want to know how to recover a PDF file. It recovers not only PDF file but also all the files present in the drive.

How do I delete files from flash drive--wipe clean

Cleaning a Flash Drive

Put the flash drive into your computer's USB port (assuming you have the proper driver loaded onto the computer). Go to "My Computer" and highlight the drive that shows up, right-click and select "Format." That'll wipe it completely clean.

Or, if you just want to remove the files, do the same thing but instead of formatting, just highlight the files and right-click to delete the file, pix, or whatever.

Can not delete pictures on my flash drive on my mac computer

Are you sure they're not deleted? Try this procedure:
1) Connect the flash drive to the Mac's USB port.
2) Open the flash drive folder.
3) Delete any files you want.
4) Empty the wastebasket.
5) If the wastebasket is already empty (i.e. the files you deleted from the flash drive aren't in it), try to find the deleted files in the Finder and delete them manually.
6) Eject the flash drive - don't just pull it out of the USB port.
7) Put it back in, to check the deleted files really are deleted.
8) Sometimes a flash drive will create a hidden folder of deleted files, so it looks as if the files are missing, but they're still taking up space on the drive. If you find this is the case, use the Finder to track down the deleted files and delete them manually.

Hope that helps. Good luck!
