Window is unable to format USB flash

i was installing window XP and my usb was attached to it. i formatted my usb flash along with hard-disk. After installing window i plug it out. Since then i am unable to use my USB on window 7 and Window xp.
When ever i insert usb, it says that window has to format it. but when i start formatting, it instantly shows window can not format it because it can not be detected.

Try formatting with the HP format utility.
