Have you figured out why this 8GB pen drive shows 0 bytes used and total space and asks you to format before any access? Is it displayed as RAW file system in Disk Management? If so, do not panic! From my understanding, the easiest way to convert drive RAW file system to NTFS is to merely format it on your PC or laptop as you usually do. However, if you do have performed formatting processes there several times already, you'd try it on another computer or other professional format tools online to take chances.
And one more thing, have you left any important data on this RAW file system hard disk? If you do, in order to rescue your desired hard disk, you've better take chances with external hard disk RAW file system recovery software.
NO matter what your situations are, learn a lesson to prepare drive data backups well from now on to avoid such hard disk data loss troubles.

My sandisk 8gb pendrive is showing o bytes as its space

It may need to be re-formatted. That is if there is no accessible data.

You can also check for hidden files, by setting you folder options to show all hidden files.

Hello, i am not able to format my transcend 8gb pen drive. whenever i format this pen drive after a few second's i got a message "WINDOWS UNABLE TO FORMAT". Properties shows used space 0 bytes and free...

Try it on another usb port..or If the windows can't format try formatting it from the command prompt if it's not working than must be pendrive.. i think there's no problem with other pendrives.. or the one that you have

Pen drive is showing o bytes

I would first put it through a fast formatte then a standard formatte, then i would recommend asector scan and see if there are any sectors that are not recoverable, if they are messed up and or still not solved try to uninstall the file that has stored the recognition files for the pen drive remove the main file in c drive program files , find the file by name corresponding to what it is you have and delet it then do a full shutdown and after a full cold start reboot install pen and software when asked if you still experience this post the results and i will try to help in a higher level of tech knowledge and support

How are you formatting it? NTFS or FA32?

I suggest you reformat as FAT32
